The Cat Show held over Colombus Day Weekend, featured our feline friends and their owners dressed up in costume.
Linda and Pippi… you’re winners in our our book!
Linda and Pippi Bohm as Gomez and Morticia Addams.
We know, we know…. The Pipster again!?! But hey!. our little one just became a little lady – We celebrated the Pips first birthday with her best friends, Luca, Whoopee and Sealee – two Border Collies and a PyrShep!
After her favorite treats and a dance party (relax, photos to follow), our champion Somali decided to find herself a cozy spot on the floor and laze for the rest of the day.
Mondays are one of those days where you just don’t want to get out of bed in the morning…the bed is still so warm and it’s a little chilly outside. Then your alarm goes off, and you are not a happy camper. Somali cat, Pippi knows just how you feel today! Sometimes hitting snooze for an extra few minutes is entirely necessary. Brew some fresh coffee (extra strong) to help you get going.
At Bohm-Marrazzo Photography we do animal photography of all types! We’ve photographed ferrets, cats, dogs, turtles, you name it! Photographing animals is a lot of fun and we get the privilege to meet all sorts of fun critters!

Happy Friday! 🙂
As you may remember, our Olympic cats pridefully celebrate their victories on the podium. Our photograph was featured on page 64 of the August 27th issue of InTouch Magazine! Just as the cats are super excited, so are we!
“The caption reads: “Inspired by Olympian Gabby Douglas, rescue cat Riplee, 2, raises his arms to celebrate his win over Pippi and Bonnie. The feline friends owned and photographed by Linda Bohm of Montclair, N.J., re-created this gymnastics ceremony by proudly posing in front of the famous rings.“
(**Should read photographed by Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo of Bohm-Marrazzo Photography**).
So in case you happened to see this as you were flipping through your copy of InTouch Magazine, that’s why it looked so familiar. 🙂
The summer is slowly creeping to an end, and fall is sneaking on in. It’s starting to get a little colder at night. There are a few fallen leaves scattered here and there as the wind gusts through the trees. You’re favorite pumpkin spice coffee drink has reappeared on the menus. The season is changing and Autumn is right around the corner.
Autumn, the ever-sneaky season always finds a way of inching it’s way in when summer is still on everyone’s minds. So why not sneak up on Autumn? Start gathering your school books and pulling out your fall jackets because before you know it, you’ll be needing them!
Happy sneaking. 🙂
Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Winston was right, in more than one way! Attitude is important not only in how you live your life, but also in how you take someone’s portrait. The attitude of your subject plays a major role in the over all atmosphere of the image. Therefore it is of dire importance to capture your subject in such a way that their attitude shines through.
The attitude that you catch your subject in also depends on the mood you are trying to convey with your photograph. Timing is everything. Catching that one facial expression, be it smile or scowl, is what makes the picture.
However, this doesn’t just go for portraits of people. Animals have attitudes, too!
Those of which Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo are unparalleled in capturing.
As you can see, the expression caught on Pippi’s face shows her fierce “CAT-itude!”
As the Olympic Games slow down and draw to a close, the whole world waits to see the final medal count.
With China and the United States neck-and-neck for first place we all watch with anticipation.
Our Cat Olympians take pride in what ever medals they have acquired, as you can see here. Riplee raises her arms in victory of winning the first place gold medal.
Pippi stands noble in second place with her silver medal, (although jealous hints of her inner Maroney show through as she places a paw onto the coveted first place).
And last, but by no means the least, the 18 year old Bonnie proudly sports her bronze.
These gymnastic cats are decorated in wrist bands and collars to represent their homelands on the medal podium. Their Olympic costumes were crafted by Linda Bohm to help each cat look their best!
Inspired by American gymnast Gabby Douglas who made history when she took home the gold in individual and team all-around.
Not to mention Gabby is the first African-American to win the all-around in gymnastics.
Riplee embraces the proud and enthusiastic spirit of Gabby’s record-breaking Olympic moments here on the medal podium.

Happy Sporting. 🙂
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Garden State Cat Club’s Cat Expo this weekend! The event was a booming success, up in attendance by 40% from last year!
Special thanks to SGW and Niles Wolfson for the media blitz helping to create such an amazing turnout.
We had so much fun at the expo! There were cats in cars, face painting, and lots of vendors.
There were some adorable cats to be adopted and a cat agility event in which our very own Pippi participated in.
Check out some photos of the event below!
Hopefully everyone else who went enjoyed it just as much! (And maybe even brought home a new furry friend!)
Let us know if you enjoyed the expo, too!
