Teen Finally Gets His Laser Cat Photo in the Yearbook

The triumphant saga of the Schenectady high school student who wanted his senior portrait to be an homage to internet laser cats of yore has officially come to an end: Draven Rodriguez got a majestic photo of him holding his cat in the yearbook, but with a little twist.

Rodriguez was forced to compromise with the school and pose with his principal and her dog for a photo that appears on the principal’s page. It’s still pretty glorious; plus, the page supports animal rescue and donations, so it’s kind of a win-win.
