When David Williams, the photographer behind the Men With Cats series, watched his elderly grandmother receive a kitten as a gift, he was struck by the relationship between pet and owner. "Most of the guys I photographed for Men With Cats were millennials, along with being first-time pet owners," Williams tells BuzzFeed. "So I really wanted to talk to older people who had more experience with pet ownership. Some had pets their entire life, and others later in life."

"A lot of the seniors enjoy owning a pet for companionship, like every other generation," Williams said, "but for a lot of seniors it also helps with exercise and continuing a healthy lifestyle."
