We’ve introduced you to dogspotting, so it’s only fair we cover catspotting as well. After all, what is our world with just one and not the other?
In its core, the group is a place to post photos and videos when you unexpectedly encounter a cat. “Cats are elusive and have lots of attitudes, so the scenarios you’ll find them in are always really interesting,” Ruby Black, the creator of the Catspotting Facebook group, told We.
She started the online community in 2014 and said they’ve had some crazy and weird spots throughout the years, cats in unbelievable situations or beautiful scenery and such. “We encourage members to share a bit of the story with their spot, like the circumstances surrounding how, when, and where,” Black explained.
Continue scrolling and check out some of the most memorable spots the group has ever seen!
