Cat Instagram. It’s not just for the domestic feline. There are many fine photographers pounding pavements worldwide to capture cats on the streets. Here, I share with you nine such accounts. Still in play from my first post in this series are my cat photography criteria: photographers who do not depend on gimmicks or gorgeous models alone, who post beautiful and interesting pictures of the cats they present, and accounts with fewer than 10,000 followers.

Here they are, nine Cat Instagrams featuring stunning photography of street cats.
