Photographer Alexandra Crockett’s new book Metal Cats traces the unlikely pairing of felines and the hardcore metal fans that love them. [Read more...]

We’ve seen cats doing their best Derek Zoolander, posing like hunky male models, and now it’s time for the female homologue. Hurly-Burly Clothing based in Perth Australia, an alternative/pinup/rockabilly/goth/punk clothing and accessory line, has compiled this hilarious collection pairing adorable cats with their pin-up girl twins. Back before the days of the internet, pin up girl posters were all the rage, kind of like cats are now, so why not combine them and have the best of both worlds? That’s what makes these pairs so perfect. [Read more...]
Did you ever think there was more to life than being really, really, really, ridiculously good looking? Yeah, neither did we. If there’s one segment of our society that knows it best, it’s muscle ripped male models. I mean, look at those poses! Giving a little lip bite; doing a little stretch; standing in the pouring rain… there isn’t a single place these dudes can’t look good. But, it’s come to our attention that they’ve got competition – and it wouldn’t be the internet if it wasn’t from cats! [Read more...]
We all know that every cat has an exceedingly unique personality.

Sometimes these things are obvious, and sometimes we need a little help. Amanda Coffelt and her cat Bob are here for us, setting out to enhance the feline world on Instagram, one picture at a time. Their project idraw_on_cats has seen Bob and many of his friends transformed into their alter egos with just the touch of a pen. [Read more...]
While many cats have an elitist attitude as if they were royalty, few have actually dressed the part…until now. Uzbek artist Eldar Zakirov has created this hilarious series of cats in seriously regal gentlemen attire. The series, which he calls The Hermitage Court was created for Hermitage Magazine and features a Chamber Herald, Waiter, Moor, and Outrunner uniform, all with holes for tails of course. The costumes in Zakriov’s digital paintings are detailed as exquisitely as the perfectly kept whiskers of the noble cats wearing them. Though I’m much more of a dog person, I would not mind seeing one of these cats drinking tea on the fainting couch in my parlor (if I had one). With their refined style and chivalrous manners, they could teach the cats of today a few lessons. [Read more...]
Like most of the internet, Japanese artist Yoko Tanji has an obsession with cats. Lucky for us, she’s doing something about it, creating a large body of work revolving around the feline species and their human companions. Her work ranges in style from sketched pen drawings to watercolors and digital illustrations, while her cleverly executed themes range from the somber to the brilliantly funny. Despite her varied modes of bringing the work to life, each piece stands well on its own and is created with a perfection unmatched by most artists. [Read more...]
