About

Captain Kitteh is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a cat sitting in a box dressed in a flight captain’s uniform. The captions are typically written from the perspective of a commercial airline pilot who happens to be a cat, in similar vein to other anthropomorphic feline characters like Business Cat and Aristocat.
