Call it the ultimate in copy cats. Time Magazine is being accused by Bullett Magazine of copying their cat pictures. And after looking at the photos, it’s impossible not to agree with Bullett Magazine. Would Time Magazine really plagiarize their Grumpy Cat photo shoot by stealing Bullett Magazine’s ideas? Surprisingly, the answer is apparently Yes.
Check out this Bullett Magazine vs Time Magazine cat pictures. Bullett Magazine is featuring Lil Bub, while Time Magazine is featuring Grumpy Cat:

Here is another Time Magazine vs Bullett Magazine comparison:
Wow! I could understand one picture in a cat photo shoot being the same — because there are only so many ways you can take a picture of a cat. But two? And this picture is even more original than the other one — and Time Magazine copied it almost exactly.
Shame on you, Time Magazine. Let’s hope they admit their mistake and give the credit to Bullett Magazine.
