New Favorite Tumblr: Saving Room For Cats

It turns out we’ve been wrong. The well-documented phenomenon of men taking up too much space on the train as if to air out a particularly large set of balls that has enraged women since time immemorial (or at least since the invention of public transit) is not, in fact, about a gendered sense of entitlement to fill up public space or a performance of masculinity.

There is actually a perfectly reasonable explanation: they’re just saving room for cats. Very large cats.

On behalf of feminists everywhere, our sincerest apologies to all sprawling men and their furry friends.

More after the jump.

    Ha! With how big these cats have to be to fill the space, there’s definitely the possibility for a sister blog titled “Saving Room for Great Danes.” Or “Saving Room for Goats. (But Only Full-Grown Goats.)”

    Oh, it all makes sense now, gotta love those kitties. The cat with the old guy in red cap has a Poirot mustache, now that’s class.
    I like how the cats make the image go from ewwww gross to awwww cute kitties :)
    Anne that is hilarious you could definitely fit a Great Dane in there, a goat might kick though… ouch ;) Mike I had never seen kitten shake before but now I’ve seen it I must have it :D
