Bored Panda reached out to the 29-year-old founder of the 'Koty Vezde' page, Galina Bugaevskaya, who lives in Moscow, to talk about her passion for cats. "The idea came to me quite spontaneously, about a year ago," she revealed the inspiration behind the 'Cats are Everywhere' page. "I had previously been creating various funny things in Photoshop." Scroll down for the full interview with the creator of these adorably funny animals!
The founder of the 'Cats are Everywhere' page loves cats!
“I am very pleased that so many people appreciated my photo editing work. I just learned today that in different countries they began to publish articles with my animal face collages. People write a lot of warm comments under my works — this is very cool! I am so happy!”
The creator of ‘Koty Vezde’ said that she loves cats: “Especially chubby and angry cats. 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.”
“I am an ordinary Russian girl, I am 29 years old. I live in Moscow with my best friend. I love fantasy very much, which is a little reflected in my work. I work as a content manager. I mastered Photoshop on my own, this is my hobby,” she told Bored Panda about herself.
“I know that many people think about Russia. That there are gloomy, stern people who never smile. Now you know that Russians also love cats! Thanks to everyone who follows my work! It is very inspiring. I love you!” the creator of ‘Cats are Everywhere' sent out a wholesome message to her fans.
The ‘Cats are Everywhere’ Instagram account is still fledgling but going fairly strong, having captured the attention of over 2,000 devoted fans with its hilarious photos.
This might not seem like a lot to some of you, but it’s not all about the follower count: it’s the quality of the content that really matters. With over 187 posts on Instagram, we’re sure that the page will keep bringing us amusing (excuse me, I mean ameowsing) pictures.
According to National Geographic, ancient DNA shows that cats domesticated themselves. Which just goes to show how independent they are even in matters of giving up their freedom.
Apparently, cats lived for thousands of years alongside people before officially becoming domesticated. And during all that time, their genes barely changed from those of wildcats. Of course, apart from one factor — the cute dots and stripes of the tabby.
