When a man loves a kitty very, very much, sometimes he has to celebrate that love in strange ways – no, get your mind out of the gutter, it’s not like that! David and Sarah (his human partner and photographer) are the peopole behind the wildly entertaining Movie Cats Instagram. So far the couple has only done five of their movie parodies, but the couple promises that they will continue adding more pictures every few weeks.
If there's one thing even the most ardent film-lovers can agree on, it's that the world of cinema is sorely lacking cats. Thankfully, one man and his two faithful pet felines are doing their part to help set things right.

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 (who are almost identical) named Willow and Tara, though Tara is featured in most of our movie cat pics," the pair told The Dodo. "We started doing it as a picture question in our pub quiz's film/TV round, and it went down really well so we made it a regular thing."
The attention to detail in recreating those iconic film moments is so spot-on, it makes us wish we could watch a cat-centric version of each film in its entirety.
While the feline stars of @MovieCats are unlikely to expect an Oscar nod for their perfect performances, we're happy to hear they're being rewarded in other ways.
"It can be a challenge to get them to cooperate, but they get lots of treats so that tends to win them over to our nonsense," David and Sarah said. "We're going to keep making them. It's a hilarious way to spend a Sunday!"
