i mean check out Hipster Kitty ?!
Cats are the definition of hip; they have a mostly snooty, or perhaps an aloof quality about them. If you ask me their entire attitude simply seems apathetic. They don't care what time of day or night it is or if your trying to get laid, cats want what they want when they want it. (reminiscent of most middle to upper class teens?)
Bros hipsters know that they can relate to an animal that is just as lethargic and un-motivated to help socioty in anyway as they are. And sure dogs are popular, but come on. are they really hip?
come on dog, your clearly looking directly at the camera and just trying to hard in general.
please be more apathetic. now.
I mean most hipsters will admit that cats aren't the only animal they a weird "omfg i love ____ so fuckin much" obsession with (deer, wolves, etc), but I'm pretty sure they are the only animal actually around hipsters for long enough to be considered the #1 hipster pet.
