My Top 10 Favorite Cat Photos of 2012

Top 10 Favorite Cat Photos of 2012The new year is almost here!

2012 was a great year for myself — one reason being I have gotten to write about one of my favorite things in the whole world, cats!

I have come across a lot of amazing images over the past year when it comes to cats. Some have been crazy funny (hello, Grumpy Cat!), some inspirational, some strange (with cats that’s likely to happen) and some just plain adorable.

It’s hard to narrow down which image was my favorite of the year — it’s hard to narrow it down to my top 10, but alas … I tried.  I am not sure if these images were all taken in 2012, but this year they’re crowned my favorite of the year.

If you have a favorite, leave a link in the comments for me to check out and take a peek at my favorite of the year.

    This cat makes me jealous of his ability to just fall asleep anywhere. I wish I could pull this off too.

    So Much Love
    I love images of cats and kids -- they're always full of so much cute. I love this one because the little tot is wrapped right around the cat that is unimpressed, yet staying still for love.
