“I鈥檓 starting to think that the pinup artists–Vargas in particular–must have used cats as inspiration for their images. Some of them are just matched too perfectly” says Rachael Aslett, creator of “Cats Who Look Like Pin-Up Girls,” a self-explanatory Tumblr.
“I don鈥檛 tend to look for the cat or the pin-up girl first, in particular,” she says. “If I find a particularly interestingly posed cat photo, I save it and just hope to find a pin-up that matches. Also if I find a bizarrely posed pin-up, I do the same. Through doing this project I seem to have discovered that I have a ridiculously extensive visual memory. When I see an image, I will just know that I have a match for it saved.” Aslett adds, “Strangely enough, I have found that male cats are actually the best matches.”
