Men on the subway who decide to stretch out and take up two spots is always a go-to subject for ridicule that everyone can get behind. Silence your #notallmen. No one ever knew why men did this though, beyond some macho “I own everything I see” attitude that some guys have. No one knew that is, until a Tumblr user recently came up with a brilliant theory: they’re saving room for cats. And so, Saving Room For Cats, a Tumblr dedicated to Photoshopping cats in between the legs of men spreading out on the train was born, and was brilliant and we all laughed. Except for r/mensrights. A couple more favorites after the jump.
Be sure to check out the whole site for more pictures of men making room for cats. It is, after all, a good reason to take up extra space.
