Cat ownership in the United States has dropped nearly 3% since 2007. I know what you’re thinking; “How is that possible? My Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest feeds are literally crawling with felines.” Well, good news for you, you’re already well on your way to being a hipster. Congratulations!
Maybe it’s the common personality traits we share with them, or their photogenicity. Whatever the reason, hipsters and cats are meant for one another.
Now, if your social feeds aren’t quite crawling with cats, it’s fairly simple to take your hipster game to the next level. Here’s what you’ll need to do.
First, start following some iconic felines. One of the most recent cats to make a splash on social media is Meredith Swift, Taylor Swift’s companion.
Another iconic feline is Hamilton The Hipster Cat. Behold.

After you’ve gotten a feel for what owning a cat is supposed to look like, you’ll need to obtain a feline friend. The best way to do this is to start volunteering at a local animal shelter. This way you can tell the world about how you bonded with your new friend and rescued them.
Now, the next step is to start documenting as many experiences as you can with your new friend. This includes everything from taking a walk down Madison Avenue to going to the grocery store, or just taking selfies together. This last one is a must. You must master the art of the cat selfie.
Check our Pinterest page for more examples.
You’ll also want to get a few accessories for your feline friend. First and foremost is a cat harness for taking walks together. Next, move onto other exciting things, such as bow ties, glasses, and beanies.
Lastly, if you’re feeling ambitious, you may want to consider is creating social media profiles for your cat. This can be a lot of fun. You can post all the sassy things your cat must be thinking. And if your cat does well and garners a significant following, link that up to your Klout account for a score boost! Stay classy, hipsters(and felines).
