I do not particularly like pictures of cats and I do not particularly like pictures of beefcake men, but I like this.

Oh, my heavens. Talk about mixed feelings.

I like the way this series reverses the stereotypical Internet imagery of cats as graceful beauties vs. men as bumbling oafs.

Welp, time to head back to the gym. Thanks, Internet!

This guy is the cutest. And I mean the one on the right.

Beefcake, meh.
Kettehs, yeh!

First picture: Yup, it's a guy and a cat.

Second picture: Hmm, should I be looking at this in the airport, actually?

Third picture: Welp, now it's hilarious.

I laughed so loud. Wasn't expecting this at all...

It took me a couple photos to 'get it,' but when I got it, it was well worth it.

I was dreading that a self-grooming pair of shots was going to be included. I did find this. Stop or keep scrolling down?

It's not quite cute boys with cats, but I appreciate having an option with a somewhat more age-appropriate demographic.

Les hommes at les chatons? Quelle excellente idée! Qui a été très agréable!

Merci!

I would love to see a CT scan of my brain while looking at this because I'm pretty sure it would look like a fireworks display. I'm feeling EVERYTHING AT ONCE!

Oh man, they just get better and better and I just get happier and happier.

I am a fan of this.

This also made me want to work on my flexibility.

I lost it at the shower one. Not quite "Dansons la capucine" level, perhaps, but pretty great.

Poom!

Aaahhhh cute/funny overload! This is going straight to my 'instahappy' list, for when I need a cheer up.

I was already chuckling but I totally lost it at this one (sfw).

There has never been anything on the Internet as relevant to my interests as this Tumblr.

Surely there was a Kids In The Hall character that decorated her cubicle with these photos.

Wow this list goes on and on.

In these photos, the cat wins every single time.

I'm a bit disappointed that first shower guy was not also sticking his tongue out.

Mrrrrawwww, indeed. Sheesh.

Is this like some kind of psychological experiment? How many pictures of men will I put up with in order to look at pictures of cats? I guess the answer is all the pictures of men.

Was this started by Choire Sicha?

Also, here, again, is that video of the cute guy taking a shower with his cat. Because it seems relevant.

Someone had to look through an awful lot of pictures of cats to match those up so well.

Or possibly through an awful lot of pictures of men.

Such a hard life, I'm sure...

Also relevant: cats just like hanging out with their humans in the bathroom.
posted by maudlin at 6:04 PM on March 28, 2013 [8 favorites]


Well, as a guy with a cat who will not let him alone in the bathroom, I am afraid I am insufficient hunky to make the cut on that site.

Oh, well.
posted by Samizdata at 6:51 PM on March 28, 2013


OMG I think this one made my ovaries explode. Except it has nothing to do with babies. I just want to have kittens with RDJ and Jude Law. I mean, come on.
posted by grapesaresour at 7:27 PM on March 28, 2013 [2 favorites]


Oh, and I lack ovaries too.

Le sigh...
posted by Samizdata at 7:44 PM on March 28, 2013


I laughed so loudly I'm afraid my neighbors heard me.

And if you haven't watched the video maudlin linked to, don't miss it.

Oh wow. This is pressing too many buttons at once. Brain isn't sure which way to respond except it's certain it wants snuggles.

OK, this one is kinda NSFW, but it's also sublime: http://deshommesetdeschatons.tumblr.com/post/44539172280

I appreciate limber fellas. You know, for vigorous handshakes and yoga and such...

By the time I got down to the guy with the hat, I realized what was missing: At least sometimes, the cat and man needed to be together.

But also, some realistic men would be nice. These are mostly a bunch of gym bunnies, selling cool and tats and weight loss schemes and body shame. Mostly excessively polished for my taste. (Except Pierce wears his polish very well, thank you)

Is it just me, or is every guy on the site white? (Kitty diversity well represented.)

Sadly I wouldn't have noticed except that I wanted to send this to some friends of mine, an interracial gay couple, in my continuing effort to bombard them with the Get A Kitty message. But... It's just a little creepy to have a rainbow of kitty colours and only white dudes, you know? This is the Internet after all, non-white beefcake is just a google image search away.

I did see one non-caucasian guy. A token, as it were:/

I just wish the original sources of the photos were credited. (I know hardly anyone does this on Tumblr, but still.)

I agree wholeheartedly. They all look too re-touched, lean and oddly coquettish. The kittens are beyond reproach, however.

I like this, but I think the cats/cheesecake pictures one works better, because the poses match a bit better and a bit more often. These, while attractive, are a bit more haphazard.
