Cinephiles express their admiration for their favorite films in many different ways, but one creative couple from England has gone above and beyond the line of duty. David and Sarah have started the Instagram account Movie Cats where they recreate classic movie scenes only with cats in the starring role. So far, the two have staged scenes from “The Shining,” “Alien,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Ghost” and “American Beauty.” See the adorable photos below.

“We have two cats (who are almost identical) named Willow and Tara, though Tara is featured in most of our movie cat pics,” David and Sarah told The Dodo this past Monday. “We started doing it as a picture question in our pub quiz’s film/TV round, and it went down really well so we made it a regular thing.”

However, the setup is not without its struggles. The two explain that it can be pretty difficult to keep their “production” in line and on time. “It can be a challenge to get them to cooperate, but they get lots of treats so that tends to win them over to our nonsense,” they said. “We’re going to keep making them. It’s a hilarious way to spend a Sunday!”
