Animal photos comprise 90 percent of the entire internet's image database. It's a made-up number, but no one would be surprised to learn this if it were actually true. People love taking photos of animals, and they love watching them even more. The problem with animal photos on the internet is that there's never enough of them, at least the good ones.

But it may get a little tough to sift through all of the content. Which is why it's so nice that there are people whose sole purpose is to select only the best photos that are out there. "The Decisive Moments" Magazine's mission is exactly that: to collect and select the best photos that are out there, and promote them. This time we've collected the best animal street photography as shared on their Instagram account, and we hope you enjoy viewing it as much as we did selecting it.

Here's a little something about the TDM magazine and what they're about. Just recently, they've announced the winners of the best street photos of 2021, and we highly suggest checking them out in our recent article. As of now they've done two consecutive contests, and we certainly hope they're going to make even more in the future.

One thing about the streets is that they're full of all sorts of animals (and no, it's not some sophisticated and figurative way to talk about certain kinds of humans). There are usual suspects like cats, dogs and pigeons, but it all greatly depends on the culture the photos are taken from. Some streets are filled with goats and cows, somewhere else there's horses and monkeys. It may seem strange to us, but it's a part of life to whoever lives there. And street photography is in some sense but a momentary glimpse into that life, no matter its strangeness.

It was a covert operation. I supplied the 'white stuff', and Tibbles, Mr Whiskas and Punk took care of the rats.

Some of you might think that some of these photos are not exactly street photography, but it might surprise you that street photography isn't exactly about shooting things explicitly on the street. Indoor photos can be considered street photography, as well as photos from rural and less urbanized areas. The whole gist of street photography is the rawness of the perspective, its authenticity and randomness: one must be a keen observer of life in order to be good at street photography.

If you're feeling hooked on animal photography, don't get off the hook so easily just yet, as we have plenty more similar articles to offer! Birds are majestic creatures, but since they're so majestic, well, it's sometimes hard to capture it to its full extent. Which is why bird photography fails are so funny; check them out here. Here's another animal and street photography-adjacent topic: landscape photos. All of these articles, including the one you're in right now, just make me want to go out there and shoot with my camera.

While Charlie the cat was known for coughing up the occasional hairball, Wilbur was known for coughing up a Thomas.

The xylophone to heaven was a curiousity in that part of the town, but it gave the cats something to on the way to claiming a reboot for their nine lives. Some neighbours shared a less favourable view, however, in particular Devin, who claimed, 'Why they have to run up and down like silly buggers at 3am? I got to work in the morning.'

While there were fears for Luna as her legs dangled without purchase, there were greater fears for Felix, whose legs seemed not to be anywhere at all.

Nola, at times, would stop to let the other cats know that here there was a public restroom for felines.
