Is Kickstarter trolling me?

I'm making a photography book of my kittens sleeping. Help me!
I must be dreaming.
 After a long day of work, what is more rewarding than coming home to adorable cats who are fast asleep and snuggly? I'd like to pull together a book of photos and share them with you!

This woman wants $300 to take a bunch of photographs of her cats! Photographs of her cats!

Is she so out of her mind that she honestly thinks that we will pay money for pictures of her cats? Maybe she thinks we don’t know where to find cat photos? Could she possibly be so mind-boggling out of touch with reality that she thinks amateur cat photos are a rare and valuable item? Could she possibly be so vapid that when she looks at her cats she thinks “My cats are cute! That’s so original!”

Is she harboring a secret hope that these photos will become so popular that she’ll forever be known as “The Artist Who Takes Photos of Cats”?

It’s made all the more mystifying by the one and only example photo included in the project page. It’s not a good photo, and it’s not particularly cute by cat standards. When she was posting this project did she believe that this photo was so spectacular that it would speak for itself and we’d just start throwing money at her?

No, I have to assume that this project is a cover for some mafia money-laundering scheme. At the last moment it’ll be funded with a million dollars of stolen drug money, and then she’ll withdraw the money into a numbered account in a Swiss bank.

That’s the only explanation that doesn’t make my head hurt.
