Two beautiful cats named Tara and Willow have a very silly human named Dave who, with his partner Sarah, likes to recreate famous movie scenes with them, post the photos on Instagram and then have their many followers try to figure out from which film the scene came. In an interview with Love Meow, the couple explained why they like to make people guess and how their kitties feel about the whole thing.

“We host a pub quiz every few weeks, so we started doing it for the film/TV round, and we enjoyed it so much we decided to keep doing it as a regular quiz question. …The cats clearly think we’re weird, but they get loads of treats doing it which tends to be their main focus.”

I am in awe of Dave and Sarah from Instagram account Moviecats.

Not only have they recreated, with a huge amount of creativity, scenes from a slew of iconic movies but they done with their cats.

Yes, their cats.

Somehow, by a sorcery not known to us mere cat-loving mortals, they have convinced their kittehs Tara and Willow to play along with their fun cinematic homages.

Even if they are simply doing it for the food, it’s a mighty impressive feat and I for one am worshipping at their feet.

Tara and Willow, meanwhile, are scoffing down tasty treats, which is, of course, as it should be.
