Life is better with cats. I know it, the lady down the street who has 11 cats knows it, and the Instagram account Movie Cats knows it.

Let’s focus on the last one.

A man in Notts, U.K., has created an Instagram account dedicated to recreating famous movies with a cat in one of the lead parts. Each week, the cat dad carefully stages a scene from a blockbuster movie with one of his Burmese felines, Tara and Willow, and shares it on the social network.

After just six weeks, the account has over 38,000 followers — further proof that many agree the kitties add cinematic value.

We can only hope this man’s determination to show off the acting chops of felines — and the necessity to add kitties to just about every bit of pop culture — inspires others to do the same.
