Just because a woman has a cat, it doesn't mean she's a "crazy cat lady."
Photographer BriAnne Wills is looking to debunk this false image of women with cats—one photo at a time, with her ongoing project called "Girls and Their Cats" (GATC).
Since 2015, she has snapped portraits of women and their felines to showcase them in a positive way—as interesting ladies who love their cats. The initiative has been a hit; over the course of several years, she has photographed more than 300 women and their rescued, adopted and fostered kitties across the U.S.
Here are some of their beautiful stories.
