Portraits of your favourite Star Wars characters with cats are out of this galaxy
There's only one kind of pet that wouldn't look out of place in a Star Wars movie and that's a cat.
Low-maintenance, adaptable and therapeutic, we can totally picture every Star Wars character with their own feline sidekick.
Like a slinky black cat appearing from behind Darth Maul to hiss at his latest adversary, or a Birman keeping Princess Leia company on Alderaan.
And to help us out, one of our favourite Instagram duos, Griz and Norm Lemay, have depicted some characters from Star Wars — old and new — in cartoon form… complete with their own pet moggies.
The Walt Disney Animation Studio artists have given us BB-8 with a whole litter of kittens:
Princess Leia with a fluffy white Persian:
R2D2 with a black and white ball of cuteness:
Padmé Amidala and a regal black puss:
And, of course, Rey and a Bengal kitten:
