Cats think that wherever they reside is their kingdom to do as they please. This includes places where felines are certainly not in charge, like the humble convenience store. Known in New York as bodegas, these places are lauded for their packaged snacks, egg sandwiches, and, often, cute kitties that unofficially rule the store. The social media account Bodega Cats shares snapshots of these furry friends who make these places their homes.

Rob Hitt is the person behind Bodega Cats, and he sifts through up to 100 submissions a week to find the cute kitties in these shops. Above all, he selects photos highlighting how no space is off-limits to them. The furballs are found on empty shelves and use sold-out end caps as a place to lounge. Although they might appear less conspicuous this way, other cats prefer to keep court on checkout counters, next to deli cases, and on ATM kiosks. You can’t miss them, and they wouldn’t want you to, anyway. This is their store, after all, and you’re just a visitor.

Check out some of our favorite bodega cats and follow the account on Instagram to see where these kitties are hanging out next. And the next time you see their photos, know that it’s for a good cause. Bodega Cats works with the organization Flatbush Cats to help reduce the outdoor cat population in Brooklyn.
