Fluffy, playful, intuitive, independent, cuddly, and the list goes on!

Cats possess a magical power that can make anybody fall in love with them.

They’re basically living love potion.

Each cat is as different as the next, but they all, in one way or another, show their special, unconditional love to those around them. Talk to anybody, and you’re guaranteed to hear stories about how their cat, another person’s cat, or a cat they met that day made an impact on them.
There’s no escaping the fact that cats have us wrapped around their adorably soft paws – their paws alone make us fall in love! If your heart can take it, we want to show you some cats ft. their male celeb owners, or is it male celeb ft. their cat owners? Either way, it’s worth a look!
There is a “cat craziness” going around, and these male celebrities are proof. I don’t know who is cuter the cat or his owner in picture #7.

Be sure to let us know if you think these cats could be as famous as their owners – our vote is yes.

The Glee star enjoys posing with his cat “Brian.” They seem to be having lots of fun. I can definitely see where Brian gets his gorgeous eyes! In this picture posted on Instagram, Colfer thanked his fans for all of the birthday wishes and joked around saying, “At this age, I’m just glad to look younger than my cat.” Oh please, you both look fantastic.

How could the “Thinking Out Loud” and “Shape Of You” singer get even better, you ask? He is also a huge animal lover and has gotten involved with rescues. Yup, that did the trick. What a stunning photograph of the award-winning singer with his beautiful cat, Boris!

3. Ricky Gervais

The British comedian, who got famous thanks to The Office, enjoys spending time with his Siamese cat, Ollie. I am pretty sure Ollie gets spoiled, don’t you think? Remember my earlier comment about their paws? Ollie knows the power his paws hold!

4. Russell Brand

The English comedian and actor can’t imagine his life without his beloved cat, Morrissey. They look like a fun pair to hang out with (hint: invite me), and I bet they do a lot of traveling together. Please invite me!

5. Michael Jackson

What a blast from the past! The King of Pop in his early years holding a gorgeous kitty. At first glance, I thought he was holding a lion cub!

It’s hard to determine which one is cuter, Michael or his cat. Let’s call it a tie!

6. Karl Lagerfeld

It’s impossible to leave fashion off this interesting list. Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld spoils his cat Choupette so much to the point his fur animal has a maid. Yes, you read that correctly, his cat has a maid. He says he has become a better person thanks to Choupette.

7. Ian Somerhalder

While the rapper’s name suggests an affinity for dogs, he also loves cats! He has 2 cats and 11 dogs. His cats have creative and interesting names, like Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis (shown in the picture).

9. Robert Downey Jr.

The Iron Man and Zodiac actor can’t imagine his life without his loyal companions, Montgomery and Dartanian, or “Monty and Dart” as he calls them. Funny enough, we can’t imagine our lives without Robert Downey Jr., so we should all have a pet play date and be friends!

10. Marilyn Manson

Brian Hugh Warner, better known as Marilyn Manson, says his cat Lily White will always be his beloved companion. They both seem to have the same look. What could they be staring at?
