The internet loves two things perhaps more than anything else: cats and celebrities. And what happens when you combine the two? You get a whole lot of adorable, that’s what! Plus, you might even find a happy ending for some unusual-looking kitties who were once thought un-adoptable.
There’s no doubt that this cat has Drake’s eyebrows, but somehow it has also been blessed with Drake’s attractive facial features, too. Whether the kitty can rap well enough to pick up a Grammy and six BET awards, however, remains to be seen…
19. Ron Perlman
“I was told today that my cat looks like Ron Perlman,” wrote one Reddit user in 2015. And it sure does – just look at those eyes! Not even Perlman, famous for playing the demon superhero Hellboy, has eyes quite that menacing.
18. Adam Driver
At the start of 2016 the internet was briefly set alight by this strange little kitty who was looking for a new home. And offers started flooding in when someone pointed out that the distinctive feline looked exactly like Star Wars and Girls actor Adam Driver. The force was with him too: Corey the cat was quickly adopted and even given his own Instagram account!
17. David Bowie
This poor little kitty was found cowering underneath a truck in Suffolk, England. And it wasn’t long before she became known as the “David Bowie cat,” due to her distinctive eyes. Unfortunately though, if she has an owner, they haven’t come forward yet. But there are plenty of “Cat People” out there, so here’s hoping she finds her forever home soon…
16. Lucy Liu
For some reason, quite a few cat owners have decided to name their pet after Lucy Liu. Perhaps because she’s considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the world, and everyone thinks their cat is beautiful? This cat, however, actually does look every bit as pretty as the Charlie’s Angels stunner.
15. Nick Offerman
Nick Offerman, a.k.a. Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation, bears an uncanny resemblance to an old grumpy cat. Actually, he bears an uncanny resemblance to a lot of old grumpy cats, so much so that there’s now even a popular blog called “Cats Who Look Like Ron Swanson.”
14. Elvis Presley
You’ll be glad to know that lots of Elvis Presley cat costumes exist for those who want to dress their pet up as the King of Rock and Roll. This kitty, however, doesn’t even need one. “If my cat were a human she would look like Elvis, gotta love her side burns!” her proud owner posted on Reddit.
13. Nicolas Cage
“There’s this cat at my local shelter that looks exactly like Nicolas Cage, which I think is as good a reason as any to adopt a pet,” wrote one Tumblr user in 2014. And to prove it, he posted the above pic of the uncanny kitty. Now that’s a great way to get folks cat-adopting.
12. Iggy Pop
Poor Iggy Pop – there’s just no way of getting around the fact that he’s ageing like a wrinkly Sphynx cat. Still, there are worse things to be compared to, because while Sphynx cats may not be appealing to everyone, they’re actually pretty rare and expensive pets.
11. Tom Selleck
It turns out that cats can grow moustaches too, with amusing results. “My friend’s cat looks like Tom Selleck,” posted a Reddit user beneath a picture of this gloriously hirsute kitty. “Best pic on Reddit all month,” came one of the replies.
10. Zooey Deschanel
New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is noted for her blue eyes… her very, very blue eyes. Her peepers are so popular, in fact, that people have even undergone dangerous surgery to get a set just like hers. This little kitty however, who is every bit as cute as the actress, would never have to.
9. Angelina Jolie
When this feline first made an appearance on the internet, people rather unfairly nicknamed it “the demon cat.” But actually, the distinctive feline looks more like Angelina Jolie in character as Maleficent, and not just because of the hair. In fact, it’s a very pretty little kitty indeed.
8. Benedict Cumberbatch
Benedict Cumberbatch has been compared to many animals – most notably otters and dogs – but perhaps this cat actually comes the closest to embodying the actor. It’s got his long neck, his piercing eyes and his serious face after all.
7. Vladimir Putin
Russian leader Vladimir Putin doesn’t like being made fun of. And yet it’s hard not to make some comment about the fact that he looks remarkably like a hairless cat. And surely he wouldn’t mind being compared to something that’s actually almost kinda cute. If you squint. Right?
6. Eugene Levy
American Pie favorite Eugene Levy is renowned for his big bushy eyebrows – as is this kitty and online sensation, Sam. In fact, give Sam a pair of glasses and it would be hard to tell the two apart. Levy doesn’t look half as anxious as the cat does, though…
5. Steve Buscemi
Of course there would be a cat out there that looked like famously odd-looking actor Steve Buscemi. And of course, when a picture of him was posted on Reddit, Redditors went nuts. Let’s just hope that all his internet fame delivers this kitty to a good home.
4. Samuel L. Jackson
This angry grey kitty cat (Samuel L. Catson?) looks just like Pulp Fiction actor Samuel L. Jackson when he’s giving a passionate speech his all. And let’s assume he’s got “BMF” written on his cat bowl or his scratching post.
3. Adrian Brody
Actor Adrian Brody looks so distinctive it’s hard to imagine that there’s an animal out there that looks like him. But Stache the Oriental shorthair manages it with style. Perhaps it’s all down to that fabulous mustache, which even his owner admitted looks just like it’s been drawn on with a Sharpie pen.
2. Miley Cyrus
Lil Bub has become a social media star due to her cute and quirky array of genetic anomalies. As well as dwarfism, this little puss has a lower jaw that isn’t quite big enough to hold her tongue, and so it’s constantly sticking out. What’s Miley Cyrus’s excuse, though?
This wrinkly puss would be just as scary as Ralph Fiennes’s Voldemort if not for two things. Firstly, although his eyes and angry little mouth are absolutely terrifying, the cat does have a nose. And secondly… a cat can’t hold a wand.
