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!
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? >^..^<
