This Man is Your Classic Crazy Cat Gentleman
In the world we live in, it's either you're a dog person or you're a cat person. Or you're neither. But come on, how can you hate either. That's why it's very f-cking insane to believe how some people can take part in things like the Yulin Festival. Horrors aside, (I know it's a bloody horrible time to mention that, I'm sorry) it's perfectly natural to do something pretty neat for the furball in your life such as get a tattoo. Maybe one or two, sure, but maybe even your inner cat lady will flip at this gentleman right here.
Meet Andy Richards, your typical father of two who happens to adore cats big time. The 54-year-old resides in Accrington, Lancashire. He's been working for animal welfare during the past decade. To date, he's gotten about 40 tattoos and 18 paw prints/names of his cats both past and present. Trust him, it wasn't planned at all.
The thirst for ink started when Andy got himself a tribute portrait for his cat Poe was ran over back in 2008. He just wanted a small portrait to remember the little guy by. But of course, I can hear the rest of you chuckling back there. Of course, once you get one, you can never have enough.

"I'd never thought about having tattoos before,” he explained.
He doesn't really mind being called 'the cat man' though, he could do without the crazy. He simply wants people to know that he's not the only guy who appreciates cats this much. But it sure is nice to take the credit.
But now, Andy is running out of arm space, he estimates five or six more names at most. He fears that as time goes, he won't have any space left in the future.
