Thanks for sharing your idea.
I can understand being excited by your success with the cat photograph, great job!
However, assuming that "no one appears to have considered photographs" for use as covers is incredibly short sighted. Why else would the options to use a image as cover or stretch an image to use as a background even exist if not to use any image as the cover.
None-the-less karma to you for sharing your idea so everyone will consider this great idea as an option.
