At one time, Life Magazine was a popular magazine that practically everyone read or at least knew about. In all those years of being in business, Life Magazine photographers collected thousands of photographs and inevitably, many of those pictures involve cats.

Now Life Magazine has released some of their most popular cat pictures. Not only can these old photos bring back the past, but they can show you how cats throughout time have looked and behaved, which isn’t any different from the way cats behave today. The only difference is that Life Magazine’s pictures don’t depict cats as little furry dictators.
