Over on Dogster, we shared Dog Heirs’ collection of dog photos from people who had been photographed with their pooches, then and now. The photographs were a loving tribute to the lifelong bond between humans and their dogs. Lest you feared cats would be left out of the mix, don’t worry: Love Meow has compiled a collection of pictures of kitties and their adoring humans, in the present and in the past.
The heartwarming photos display kitty people holding their beloved animals as kittens and later on as cats, demonstrating the profound bond between felines and their human friends. It’s one that spans centuries of living symbiotically with each other.
Sometimes we don’t expect a cat in our life … sometimes they creep onto our back porch, mewing for a scrap of food and a gesture of kindness, and before we know it, we’re letting her into our home and we can’t imagine life without her.
Other times we rescue a cat from a bad situation or inherit him from a friend who can no longer care for him. Or sometimes we go to the shelter looking for a friend to give a furever home to.
The point is that these furry four-legged friends (or three- or two-legged, as the case may be) become family, and inspire love exactly like the kind radiating from these photos.
