Even the most passionate film fans can agree on one thing: the world of cinema is severely short in cats. Thankfully, one guy and his two devoted pet felines are assisting in the restoration of order.
David and Sarah, a couple from England, are the masterminds behind the latest must-see Instagram account, @MovieCats. The idea is brilliantly simple – recreate scenes from famous films with cat actors cast in the leading role.
“We have two cats named Willow and Tara (who are virtually similar), however Tara is featured in most of our movie cat photos,” the couple told The Dodo. “We started doing it as a picture question in our pub quiz’s film/TV round, and it was such a hit that we decided to make it a regular feature.”
We wish we could see a cat-centric version of each film in its entirety since the attention to detail in replicating those classic film scenes is so spot-on.
A cat with a chestburster? Please say yes.
While we doubt the feline stars of @MovieCats will receive an Oscar nomination for their flawless performances, we’re glad to hear they’re being recognized in other ways.
“It can be difficult to persuade them to comply,” David and Sarah explained, “but they receive a lot of goodies, so that tends to win them over to our foolishness.” “We’ll continue to make them. It’s a great way to pass the time on a Sunday!”
