If you like having one cat, you might have thought about what having multiple cats is like. Sure, they”re cute, entertaining, and sometimes downright weird, but many people find that they have a limit when it comes to how many cats they want living in their home. Luckily, if you”re on the fence about running down to the shelter, there”s a photographer that can give you an idea of what your house will look like with a crowd of cats.

French-Canadian photographer Andreanne Lupien found a group of cat-enthusiasts over the years, and photographed them in their homes with their cats. Then, she digitally multiplied the cats so that it appears, in the final images, as though their homes are overrun with felines. In reality, her subjects might only have one or two cats, but after Lupien”s editing, they appear to have many more. The series is aptly titled Crazy Cat Lovers, and the models were came from a group of both friends and strangers.

The effect looks most realistic when the person really does have multiple cats.

The series took Lupien over a year to complete, but she”s expressed her happiness at the results. You can see more cat-filled homes, as well as her other photos, on her website, including a series of selfies.
