Cat Fort is a photo fad that involves building a fortress-like enclosure around one’s cat with household items, such as cardboard boxes and decorative pillows, in a similar fashion to the setting of the collaborative webcomic series Dog Fort.
The earliest known example of a “cat fort” photograph was submitted to the r/Trees subreddit on March 30th, 2010 by Redditor jamullah, though the original post has since been removed. The earliest known “cat fort” post that still remains accessible was submitted to the r/pics subreddit on April 23rd, 2010 by Redditor windowbird.
The idea of staging and photographing pet animals in a fortress-like setting has been also iterated through the collaborative webcomic series Dog Fort, which features a number of fictional canine characters fortified in similar-looking enclosures.
The subreddit r/Catfort was created on December 14th, 2010, by Redditor Wolz. As of May 2014, the subreddit has over 1,000 readers. On May 5th, 2011, the Tumblr Cat Forts was created. On August 11th, 2011, The Chive published photos of the 37 finalists in their cat fort contest, as well as a poll which reveals the winner (below, left) and runner up (below, right).
