20 Vintage Photos Of Women And Their Cats That Show Their Unbreakable Bond

Cat obsession is not something new. Since the dawn of photography, people with cameras have loved to take pictures of their cats. Although cats are known for being independent and aloof, they are still willing to take some photos with their humans to save their precious moments.

Nowadays, the internet has brought cat obsession to a new level, but we want to look back at cat obsession in the past. In this spirit, we would like to introduce to you a wonderful collection of vintage portraits of women and their feline friends.

This collection was created by Alice Maddicott, a writer, educator and artist from Somerset, England. She is the author of Cat Women: An Exploration of Feline Friendships and Lingering Superstitions. Through these vintage photos, Alice would like to show everyone the strong bond between people and their cats.

“I became a cat woman the moment I was hit with a thud of love that I’d never realized a creature could produce,” Alice said. “I never thought I’d become a cat lady, but, as I think of it now, the strangest thing is that it is something you can become.”

Check out below to enjoy! Honestly, the cats of the olden days were also very cute.
