What two things have this in common: kinda grumpy, but always make sure you're ok; Are constantly tired, but run around like crazy; Cute, but will hurt you if you make them mad? Babushkas and cats.

This subreddit is dedicated to sharing cats that look like Russian grannies. People put scarves and blankets on their cats and they transform into our favorite old ladies that are always ready to feed you some borscht and make sure that you're dressed warmly. The subreddit is called Babushkats, has over 13k members, and is filled with adorable babushkitties that are sure to brighten your day!

The subreddit wrote in their description: "Cats that are swaddled to look like little cute babushkas." Many posts are submitted by users that dressed their own cats up. Some are just taken from the internet. It's quite funny to see how easily a cat is turned into an old lady.

The word Babushka means an old Russian lady or grandmother. It can also refer to Russian dolls that are associated with Russian culture. The wooden dolls are placed inside one another and are a great souvenir to bring back if you ever decide to visit the country. The word can also mean a type of scarf or the way you would wear it—tied below the chin. As often seen worn like that by old Russian ladies. Babushkas are known on the internet as sweet, but stern ladies, that will feed you, whether you like it or not.
