At a charitable sports car rally that stopped for the night in Boston, Virginia, there were many beautiful cars. But it was two orange kitties who stole the spotlight. They became rally legends in a “Purrari photo shoot!”
The orange tabbies found the perfect place to play and relax: in the hood vent of a red Ferrari F8 Tributo! Then, a photographer (purr-parazzi?) came by and started taking pictures. At the time, the driver was away, and the cats did play.
As you can see, one of the tabbies seemed to really enjoy striking poses on the six-figure Ferrari. Later, the driver found out what took place and was a great sport.
“If it weren’t for the Drives 7 team, I would never have known what happened!,” said the car’s driver, Chris.

In the comments, someone shared a funny moment not seen in the video.
“The funniest part wasn’t even caught on video. A cat was sitting on the roof looking at the back of the car and slowly slide down the windshield. The cat was looking all around confused and didn’t understand what was happening,” said Jeffrey R.
Late Night Purrari Photo Shoot
The photographer who caught the funny moment is a cat lover and printer from Taylors, South Carolina, Timothy Davis, who goes by ‘Dat Sticker Guy.’ He said the impromptu photo shoot took place at 1 am at the rally stop in Boston, VA, in September 2022.
The hilarious photos almost look staged as the kitten happily gives the ‘Blue Steel’ pose on the Ferrari hood.
After sharing on social media, the post went viral, reaching over 115K shares on Facebook. It was then featured in Tire Meets Road with the funny heading, “Who knew that Formula 1 tech would inadvertently make the perfect resting place for cats?”
Rally North America’s Scott Spielman also shared the photo shoot, which happened at the Berry Hill Resort and Conference Center.
“These cats were cool as hell!! I think he’s adopted the name ENZO!” said Spielman.
As we know, cats like being around all kinds of cars, and aren’t picky about the make or model. So, this story is another good reminder to knock on the hood before starting the engine, whatever you drive.
Timothy Davis is a self-described “cat handler” at a printing business in Taylors, SC called Parallel Printworks. Along with the Purrari photo shoot, pictures of the resident “Shop Cat” make regular appearances.
As we know, cats bring good luck and so many laughs wherever they go!
