When you meet a cat for the first time it’s usually the same the story, a staring contest that could go either way, towards friendship or a quick parting initiated almost always by the cat fleeing in the other direction. Cat’s choose who they like, and everyone wants to get on a cat’s good side because, let’s face it, cats are ridiculously adorable. Here are photos PicsArt users shared of various encounters with cats. Beware, these photos will make you want to cuddle.
