From Gowanus to Park Slope, Astoria to Manhattan, NYC cats are officially having a moment thanks to the Tumblr, Felines of New York
. The site, which is run by "a person who likes cats and lives in New York," promises that all kitties featured are in fact "real" — whatever that means.
The blog is inspired by Brandon Stanton's sensational Humans of New York
, and since its February inception, nearly 50 cats have been featured alongside revelatory, interview-style quotes. And, unless this anonymous blogger is the Dory
of cats, we'll take it these quotes are imagined — though they are adorably on point.
Ahead, meet 10 superstars who consider New York the greatest playground on earth.
