20 Whimsical Photos Capture the Darling Bond Between a Little Girl and Her Cat

“I’ve always believed a photographer must love what he shoots,” Andy Prokh told MyModernMet.com.

The St. Petersburg, Russia-based photographer’s 4-year-old daughter Katherine and his 6-year-old cat Lilu have been favorite subjects of his for some time, and with good reason. The patient, imaginative sweet relationship between the little girl and her cat that comes through the lens with glaring poignancy and humor — and Prokh’s magical black-and-white style gives the photos a classically traditional touch. The dynamic duo are an easily lovable subject.

Much like the toddler from Japan and his French bulldog BFF, Katherine and Lilu are well on their way to earning Internet-viral status — and for good reason.

Take a look:
