This is how you get six Siamese kittens to pose for a photo

This is the amusing moment a man in eastern Thailand successfully managed to get six Siamese cats to pose for a picture.

Khun Atiput, the photographer, began by waving a small tree branch with leaves on the end as if conducting an orchestra. The six identical kittens all followed the green leaves while Atiput held a phone in his free hand to photograph them at his home in Nakhon Phanom Province, on March 31.

Atiput said: ''It's hard taking a picture of six cats all sitting together so I had to distract them, particularly because they're young. I think this is a good way to do it.''
