This is the only thing you need to see today

Seth Casteel — who has previously gifted the world with photo books of both puppies and babies swimming underwater — is back with another adorable project. The photographer’s latest offering, Pounce, features a collection of heartwarming shots of kittens leaping through the air.

“A beautiful, funny gift book with more than 80 previously unpublished photographs, Pounce reveals adorable cats and kittens as they pounce and jump through the air, arms outstretched–all in Casteel’s signature up-close, mid-action style,” a representative of publisher Little, Brown and Company wrote in a press release.
