Breaking

Alaskan man snaps cute photos of lynx kittens on his porch



A photographer in Alaska woke up to strange noises at his door and worried his home was being broken into, only to find seven cute lynx kittens and their mother playing on his front porch.

Tim Newton came across the lynx family when he heard scratching at his door.

Initially he was worried that someone was attempting to break in, but because he lives in Alaska he said he also realized the intruder might be a dangerous animal - such as a bear.

After unsuccessfully attempting to figure out what the noise might be from afar, he gathered the courage to creep over to the front door and peek out the window


The adorable kittens almost seemed to know their photo was being taken - posing for a series of sweet pictures


Newton, being a photographer, said he immediately grabbed his camera and started snapping away

After unsuccessfully attempting to figure out what the noise might be from afar, he gathered the courage to creep over to the front door and peek out the window.

There he saw four adorably lynx kittens playing on the front porch.

And a few minutes later, the playful lynxes were joined by three more kittens and their mother.

'It was right near dawn. I heard some noises; it was like something scrambling on the deck,' 

'Coming out of my slumber, I thought "What the heck is that?" So I put on my bathrobe and slowly eased back the curtain.

'And right there, two feet away, was a lynx kitten. He was sitting there watching his siblings race by.'


After a few minutes of playtime on his front porch, the kittens were joined by the rest of their family


Newton told The Dodo that the kittens raced each other around his front porch and down into the yard

'They were running back and forth, pouncing on each other,' Newton told The Dodo. 'I started snapping away. I thought "Wow! What incredible luck. This is just wonderful! They were so cute. It was cute-tastic'

After some playing the kittens even took moments to rest on the porch, presenting the perfect opportunity for adorable photographs


Being a photographer he immediately went to grab his camera and took adorable photos of the family playing.

He later posted them to his Facebook page - Tim Newton Photography.

'They were running back and forth, pouncing on each other,'




'I started snapping away. I thought "Wow! What incredible luck. This is just wonderful! They were so cute. It was cute-tastic.'

He said that as he watched the adorable kittens wrestling, rolling around and chasing each other he felt admiration for the mother for keeping them all under control.

The photos became so popular he started selling prints on his page FineArtAmerica.

The photos of the curious kittens became so popular that Newton is now selling prints of them on his website


Watching the adorable kittens race around the porch was probably a welcome suprise after being woken up so early
