New York City is bursting with love for cats right now. What other U.S. city boasts three cat cafes and has Instagram accounts dedicated just to the cats that live here, including @bodegacatsofInstagramand @felinesofny? The latter is definitely the city's most popular cat account and has over 18,000 followers from all over the world. If you are a cat lover, chances are you're already familiar with it.
Just in time for the holidays, creator Jim Tewes is releasing a glossy-paged book of some of the best photos, and of course the witty captions ("cat"-tions?) he pairs with each photo. To get a taste of what the book is like, we share some of our favorite Felines of New York Instagram posts here, but you'll have to buy the book to see which ones made the cut.
“You think everything’s fine until a dog shows up. Then you have to know what to do. You have to know how to assess the situation, and how to react.” “What would you do if a dog showed up right now?” “Why? Is one coming? Tell me. You have to tell me if you know. This isn’t a joke to me.” - Charlie, Park Slope
