Being a crazy cat person is something that no one wants to be accused of, but that doesn’t mean many of us are not. I have a cat; and if I had my way, we’d probably have a dozen cats. There is something so irresistible about a little kitten that is so cute and so sweet I just cannot pass it up. My husband, on the other hand, is not a cat person so much and he does this thing in which he makes sure I don’t end up bringing home kitten after kitten after kitten and filling our house with as many cats as we have kids. But that doesn’t change the fact that those who have lovingly and happily embraced the crazy cat person mentality are fascinating to me. I adore them, and I think that many people feel the same.
It was many centuries ago that cats were considered to be quite special, bringing about good luck and good fortune to those who had them, and such the crazy cat person was born. The internet (and Taylor Swift’s adorable kittens, really) has done an astounding job of boosting the popularity of cats again in the past few years, and people are more obsessed with them than ever before. Thanks to that, many people are happily living with their cat or cats, and fewer people than ever before are ashamed to be known as the crazy cat person.
When a photographer by the name of Andreanne Lupien realized that cats have become this amazing phenomenon, she decided to create an entire gallery of photographs dedicated solely to the crazy cat people of the world, and the photos are lovely and truthful.
It’s not often you see this many black cats in one room, but we have to say that we are completely in love with the concept of having this many of them. The theory that the black cat brings bad luck seems to be something silly and not at all worthwhile, but the cats themselves are just beautiful. We count 11; do you think we are correct?
Love cats; do not love cats on the kitchen counter or on top of the fridge. on that note, however, I can say with certainty that my cat does this all the time. I know he does, because I catch him, shoo him off, clean up behind him and I just know he’s doing it again when I’m not looking. In fact, I now clean my counters before and after I use them, and that’s a little annoying.
If I’m not mistaken, these are all Maine Coons or Norwegian Forest Cats, which is evident by their large ruff and their big, bold bodies. It could really go either way, since I’m not exactly a Cat expert. Either way, however, this is one brave woman with so many cats of this sheer size in her little apartment.
I do love an orange cat in a retro-themed bathroom. But what I really love is 8 orange cats in a retro-theme bathroom, and what appears to be a great deal of coffee (tea?) sharing going on.
Are they real or are they not? Some of these are real, live, gorgeous cats and some are stuffed animals. This girly and child-like picture is that of sheer innocence, and it really does a marvelous job of depicting the love of a pet by children and adults.
If you think that these cats cannot really jump that high, you’re probably wrong. I swear mine can jump higher than Shaq, and he’s not even that big. These cats are having a grand old time using the bed as a trampoline and cuddling with their darling person. We must say that the ties are absolutely fetching.
We love a manly cat lover who isn’t afraid to read a good story to his feline friend, but the one in the right corner of the photo in mid-air has us just a little afraid with the expression on his or her face. He doesn’t seem happy about this photo shoot.
Do you think that the deer head hanging from the wall is a problem for these gorgeous cats, or do you feel that they feel that it’s not that much of an issue at the end of the day? They seem to be quite lovely cats that just don’t care, however, so we’re rolling with it.
I don’t know about you, but there is something about this simple shot that makes me want to curl up with a good book and a feline friend and just relax. I also want to light a fire in the fireplace and put up a Christmas tree, since there is something so uniquely holiday-esque about everything happening here.
I’ve got 21 cats here. How many can you count? On that note, I hope they are either de-clawed or that her floors are faux wood because she’s going to have some serious scratches, otherwise. Or maybe she doesn’t care what with those fabulous shoes and all.
Who needs a baby when you have all these gorgeous cats to dress up, love and adore? They don’t keep you up all night crying for a meal (or they might). They don’t argue with you (or they might) and they certainly don’t need to be potty-trained. Now that I’m thinking about it, why do I have four kids when clearly a dozen cats would be less sassy and less messy?
