Pets of Instagram: Falafels the Cat


Falafels the cat may not have her own Instagram account (she leaves the hard work to the humans) but she does have her own hashtag #falafelsthecat where her mom Misha (renowned blogger @brandslut) obligingly archives all of her gorgeous cat-shmodel shots. We shared a lil’ bit of catnip with Falafels and coerced her to divulge her deepest thoughts… 😉
