What you are about to look at didn’t start as an internet trend, or made to have any intention of being as big as it has become. It all started when Hurly Burly (a goth, rockabilly, punk, pinup, dressing up costume website) made a Tumblr blog called ‘Cats That Look Like Pin-Up Girls” then the trend really took off…
10 – Sexy Cat
At least the “sexy” retro images don’t contain any nudity, but sadly the same can’t be said for our feline friends.
9 – Ball Play
While it is a good match, I think a cat playing with a beach ball would soon pop it. That and the fact that the cat looks rather aggressive.
8 – Leg Up
The cat has a face that says “I can do that!” and not a hint of sexiness from the cat at all. It actually looks rather annoyed at being interrupted!
7 – Both Up
Given that they are both taken years apart these 2 are identical! OK, so one is a cat and the other a woman, but still, very much alike.
6 – Slider
This cat isn’t sliding, it is hanging on for grim death! The blog writer says she just gets lucky and doesn’t really have a formula of matching the cats up to the art.
5 – Pole Dancers
Some people might recognise the art used to make these images. They are all the work of Peruvian painter of pin-up girls Alberto Vargas, he is often considered one of the most famous of the pin-up painters
4 – Board
I hope some of these are not offending anyone, it is just a little bit of harmless cat fun I promise you.
3 – Balloons
For this one, it is more about the facial expressions rather than the actual pose of the cat. A real surprise on both faces, the models for all the wrong reasons.
2 – Swingers
Strangely both cat and pin-up model seem to have a face of happiness! It is just a shame the cat isn’t on a swing as well because that would have been amazing!
1 – Sexy Socks
Seriously though, looking back on all these images what are the odds that the blog writer would find so many matching images! It’s almost like the artist used these cats as his own inspiration! Time travel theories are running through my mind now.
