Question

If you post a photo of someone's pet cat, are you supposed to have a model release for it? It's not a person but would it be considered recognisable property?

Pets are property. You can still submit them but state that there is property in the image and you do not have a release. Or get a property release so you can say you have one.

I would think unless the cat is unique in some way or another that you WOULDN'T need a release. In my experience telling a particular cat apart from another would be particularly difficult. Dogs, cattle, reptiles... the same thing. I'd love to see where it says that you'd need a release for an animal. Again, unless it's a celebrity animal or unique/distinct in some way.

I can verify that my garden frequently gets cat releases.

- and that was what I meant 😚 - not a paw print on a model release form.
