Cats in Food – A Purrfect Mix

One of our favorite new IG accounts is called @cats_in_food which showcases fabulous felines dressing up in delicious savory food dishes. It’s run by a very talented young artist-illustrator named Ksenia (bio below).

Since a picture is worth 1,000 words…here’s an example of the culinary eye candy you’ll get to feast upon in this yummy IG feed … mouth watering feline fun!

To reassure everyone that no cats are ever harmed (or for that matter even slightly annoyed) in the making of these delicious ‘Cats in Food’ dishes … here’s a sneak peek at a ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo. The secret sauce is revealed … OK, the cat’s out of the bag (or should we say the bun) now!

You’ll notice plenty of insta-famous cats in her gallery … how many can you spot?

We caught up with Ksenia and asked her to share with us some background so lettuce get on with it…

Q:  Why did you start ‘Cats in Food’? 

I always wanted to do something creative, but i didn’t know what. One day I was just sitting and looking through Instagram accounts and discovered @princesscheeto and was inspired by it, so I suddenly came up with the idea of merging cats and food. I just started the account last month (Jan. 2018).

Q:  So how does it work?

When I just started, I did it for free, but after some time there were more and more people who wanted an edit and I decided to do it for a modest payment (5$). So, now people write me (usually DM), then we discuss details and that’s it 🙂

Q:  How long does it usually take you to create these mouth watering meowsterpieces?

It depends on a picture, it could take 10-20 mins, but sometimes I could sit for hours searching for a food picture that will look good with a cat.

Q:  Are there rules for people to get their cat included in your feed?

Yep, the rules are highlighted on my IG, It’s simple, I’m just asking for a bright/clear photo of a cat.

Q:  Do have have a favorite ‘cats in food’ photo? 

My favorite one is with @albertbabycat (below left) because there are a lot of comments about animal cruelty (some people think that it’s real) and it makes this edit extra fun. And also I love one with @hosico_cat, (below right) … hard to choose! 🙂

Q:  Any interesting new ‘cats in food’ projects planned?

I’m totally focused on editing pictures right now, so haven’t thought about new projects yet.

Q:  Your fan base is growing so quickly – what would you like to say to them?

This is so amazing!!! I want to say a huuuge thanks to all of them and I’m very grateful! Love you all!

We thought you might enjoy a few more delectable dishes … Warning: cat hair will be included in all servings.

Some kitty cake anyone?

Or purrhaps something a bit sweeter?

Maybe you’re feline like one of these scrumptious temptations?

This cat-a-log of kitty inspired cuisine is endless.

See – we weren’t kitten about how yummy these look, were we?

Cats enrich our lives in so many ways and we think this is such a fun idea to blend our love for them, with one of our other great passions – food.

What’s that noise? … is your cat purring nearby or is that your stomach grumbling?  >^..^<
