Who doesn’t love cats?
They make great pets, they’re cute and cuddly, and they can be seen everywhere. Well, at least they can if you are Galina Bugaevskaya.
Bugaevskaya’s koty_vezde Instagram account features more than 200 posts featuring cat faces photoshopped onto other animals and objects.
Having spent some time working with Photoshop on some other projects, the artist found her graphic design skills translated nicely to this new application. It wasn’t long before she found herself concentrating almost exclusively on feline photos.
“The idea came to me quite spontaneously, about a year ago,” 29-year-old Bugaevskaya told Bored Panda.
Since starting the account, Bugaevskaya’s work has been shared all over the world, and it’s certainly made an impact. Here are a few of our favorites.

Who’s that cat?
“I am very pleased that so many people appreciated my work. I just learned today that in different countries they began to publish articles with my collages,” Bugaevskaya said. “People write a lot of warm comments under my works — this is very cool! I am so happy!”

There’s no doubt that Bugaevskaya loves cats. She even has a few of her own who act as models for her creative images.
“Especially chubby and angry cats,” Bugaevskaya says. “They are divine creatures: cute, soft, murmuring. We always had cats in our family. At the moment, I have Filya and Puchok, and a white Persian cat, Umka, named after the bear cub from the Soviet cartoon.”
