I'm of the opinion that every goth should have a furry little familiar. Cats, especially, make excellent nocturnal companions for other creatures of the night. There's something naturally spooky about them, with their glowing eyes, haunting stares, and tendency to race about the house chasing after ghosts. But there are some cats out there who take their natural spookiness to a whole other level. I've combed the internet to pick out for you a half dozen of the gothest cats I could find:
Monk, the vampire cat
Monk gained some internet fame last year when images of his prominent fangs went viral. All cats have sharp canine teeth, but Monk's happen to be a little extra. He looks like an adorable, furry Dracula! You can see more pictures of Monk and his brother Bean, on their Instagram account @MonkandBean.
Minerva, Halloween in furball form
This Persian kitten has orange eyes set in a black fuzzy face. All that long fur can get quite bedraggled, leaving her with a rather sinister appearance... I'd love to take her trick-or-treating! You can see more of this ridiculous fluffball on her owner's instagram, @iamtheeviltwin.
Midnight, the summer-goth
Much like me, Midnight loves to venture out to the beach, as long as it's from within the shade of her trusty black parasol! Who says goths can't enjoy summer? Midnight's owner posts plenty of pictures of her on her appropriately-named Instagram account, @thespookycatlady.
Sadie, the gothic party animal
Sadie looks like she's beyond excited for Halloween to start. Bring on the costumes and candy! You can see more of Sadie's delightful expressions on her Instagram account, @sadiefaces.
Winnie, the fiercest witch-cat
Winnie might have resting bitch face, but we all know that sometimes the scariest looking goths are really the friendliest. You can tell by her pentagram collar that she's one of us, and if you're like me, you might even have the same one... Follow Winnie and her many cat companions on her owner's Instagram account, @rachelalveston.
Princess Monster Truck, no explanation needed
And last, but certainly not least, is this gorgeous beast. Much like Monk, Princess Monster Truck has some pretty prominent fangs, only hers are a little different… Her family was worried about her when they found her on the side of the road, but though she looks a little monstrous, she's perfectly fine. That's just her face. Princess Monster Truck not only has her own Instagram account, @princessmonstertruck, she even has a website, where you can buy merch with her face on it.
