How Can Real-Live Be Fake?

I was hoping that I could find a picture that looked almost like Minnie to use on her page, but the higher-ups said it would be fake, even if it were of a real-live cat that almost looks like Minnie. How can the picture of another cat be fake if you know you didn't have pictures taken in life that people can go by to know what she looked like? They don't object to other people making pictures of their cats wearing clothes and stuff even if they don't really have clothes on, so how can that not be fake in a way? The best I can do to give people an idea what Minnie looked like in life is to compare her to Bitu and point out the differences in their eye color (Minnie's eyes were green and Bitu's eyes show yellow in her Humane Society picture) and the differences in the pattern of their fur, even though they both have orange, black and white fur. There's also a two-year age difference because of Minnie being born in 2000 and Bitu being born in 2002. But if I revised Minnie's age to reflect real life, she died at about four and a half, even though she would be seven now if she were still alive. Why are people trying to make like Minnie never existed even though we know she did? Why can't something be done to accommodate those pets unfortunate enough to not have pictures of them taken in life who their people don't want to forget? It's not fair, no matter what anybody says.
