While zipping around the grid today, we stumbled across this wonderful tumblr blog, Writers With Kitties. Not only does it feature some of our favorite literary luminaries of all time (the picture of Sylvia Plath as a little girl is priceless) it also pays tribute to a few beloved science fiction and fantasy authors and their fantastic felines. Brief selection of SFF kitties after the jump.

Is Philip K. Dick’s kitty a replicant kitty or a real kitty?
We are terrified of H.P. Lovecraft and his evil kitty.
There are so many more wonderful pictures on this particular blog, but in honor of dystopia week, we’ll leave you with one of Aldous Huxley!
