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.
中川こうじ KOJI NAKAGAWG @kochi_56562
中川こうじ photographs street cats of Kyoto and has posted over 1,500 beautiful pictures.
日日猫色 posts daily from Taiwan and captures cats on sidewalks, chairs, ledges, roofs, and more.
あっきー posts a picture a day from what looks to be either an island or coastal setting in Japan. This account is filled with striking colors and angles featuring many cats quite close up.
香港街貓圖鑑 captures cats in the urban setting of Hong Kong, striving to uncover each feline’s individual story through these gorgeous and varied photos.
h2o posts from Yokohama, though the exact location is kept secret out of respect for the cats, who are shown in many lovely settings.
Clark Stoeckley @clarkstoeckley
Clark Stoeckley’s account is filled with gorgeous pictures of cats in Kuwait and, more recently, in Queens.
Nora Wasabie @nora_wasabie
Nora Wasabie posts pictures of striking cats in Japan, using beautiful framing to capture these street felines in many different environments.
Севастопольские Коты @sev_cats
Севастопольские Коты captures cats in the city of Sevastopol on the Black Sea, often featuring cats by the water, in the trees, and in the snow.
Katu posts from Japan, and many of the photographs are action shots. Especially charming are the cats peeking up through holes like moles in concrete roadsides.
