If there’s one thing the internet loves, it’s cats. So when, in 2011, Alfra Martini launched The Kitten Covers, a Tumblr project adding felines to the artwork of classic records, it’s perhaps no surprise that the clever concept caught on – and encouraged others to follow suit. Here, then, for your viewing pleasure, are 20 of our favorite kitty-featuring album covers from the project.

First up, who says cats don’t like water? This kitty has its eyes firmly on the bill. Yes, it’s trying its level best to grasp the bait from below the water’s surface while re-enacting baby Spencer Elden’s pose on Nirvana’s classic Nevermind cover.

Here, a pensive white kitten strikes the pose that enigmatic British rocker David Bowie made for the front packaging of his 1973 glam rock effort, Aladdin Sane. The morose-looking feline even sports the famous red and blue lightning slash across its face along with the garish red mullet haircut that Bowie rocked on the original cover.

Public Enemy’s 1988 sophomore effort, It Takes a Nation Of Millions to Hold Us Back, is a hip-hop classic, having redefined the genre with its politically charged lyrics and insistent beats. The original cover showing lead rappers Chuck D and Flavor Flav in the slammer has been superbly recreated here, right down to the last detail of Chuck’s black baseball cap and group jester Flav’s backward hat, sunglasses and trademark large clock.
