True and tried New Yorkers know that a real neighborhood is nothing without a corner bodega, and a bodega is nothing without a cat.

Many of these all-in-1 stores have a friendly kitty purring around the aisles, keeping the store free of mice, rats, and any other unwanted critters who crawl from under the cracks of New York City.

These adorable cats even occasionally pop out to surprise and delight shopping New Yorkers.

Well, there's one glorious Instagram account that has been collecting photos of #bodegacats, and it's officially become a thing in this wonderful city-- to the current tune of almost 25,000 followers.

Check out some photos below of these furry felines. (And yes, you can file this one under, "Only in NYC.")
