In the Mikhailovsky garden of the State Russian Museum grows an odd garden. Instead of daisies and roses, this garden grows cat's whiskers and pussy willows. Easels and green wooden stalks rise out of the grass, topped by photos of cats.
It's clearly not your typical garden. Presented by Fat Cat Art, this art installation shows pictures of cats among plants, as plants. (We heard you like cats and flowers…) The Garden of Cats features some fantastic photographers from Instagram and their feline companions.

The collection of sweet-scented kitty flowers are the perfect combination of great photography, and some strong catty personalities. One such personality is @poonchic's gorgeous cat. Adorned with a crown of flowers, Poochnic looks like a beautiful fairy that seriously needs some pizzas because this catnip is some potent stuff, man.
Poochnic's personal paparazzi and owner shared some lovely words about what it's like to photograph this wild flower of a cat:
"The main thing that inspires me to photoshoot Poonchic is his unique character. He enjoys being the main point of attention and when he goes in front of camera his other side comes out. He poses for the camera and he knows it is time for shooting. Poonchic’s attitude and personality is an inspiration for me to share his story with other people."
We hope that Poonchic and all the other cats will continue to grow and blossom (that's our last flower references, promise).
