If you are a cat-lover who likes the show "Downton Abbey," you might just love this.

New York animal rescue Pets Alive has created a nearly shot-for-shot remake of the "Downton Abbey" opening credits using adoptable cats.

The name of the project? "Downton Tabby," of course.

Check it out in this Buzz 60 video.

For those who don't watch the show, here's the opening credits so you can compare:

And if you loved that remake, you might love this, too.

Massachusetts artist Kim Parkhurst has created animal portraits of the Downton Abbey characters in a body of work called "Houndton Tabby."

In her work, Lady Mary Crawley (played by Michelle Dockery) becomes a Borzoi; Mr. Carson (played by Jim Carter) becomes a Clumber spaniel; and Violet Crawley (played by Maggie Smith) is a Sphynx cat.

Check out Parkhurst's digital paintings at dailymail.co.uk.

What do you think of the Pets Alive remake? And Parkhurst's portraits?
