Cat lovers look for felines wherever they go and a Facebook group is celebrating the sightings with posts of cats from anywhere and everywhere.
The Facebook group Catspotting unites cat lovers by allowing them a place to post pictures of felines they meet during chance encounters.
Started in 2014 for some fun between friends, Catspotting has grown to an amazing following of 180,000 members who post feline encounters every day, proving cats are made of some special magic that keeps people hanging on their every move.
Ruby Black, the founder of the group, told Bored Panda, “Cats are elusive and have lots of attitudes, so the scenarios you’ll find them in are always really interesting.”
When it comes to posting pictures, Ruby shared, “We encourage members to share a bit of the story with their spot, like the circumstances surrounding how, when, and where.”
Cat lovers want to know every detail about the cat encounter because we hope if we happen to visit that very spot, maybe we will be honored with a feline visit too. Plus, as Ruby said, “We’ve had heaps of members say that seeing fun spots brightens their day. I love the group a lot.”
