This is a play on words, in pictures. The word “tom”, when used in conjunction with the word “cat” (tomcat), is usually used to describe an unneutered, sexually active male cat. The phrase “peeping tom” was created after a certain man named “Tom” who was the only person to watch Lady Godiva ride by naked. As a result the phrase “peeping tom” means a voyeur – a person who sneakily watches people, especially for sexual pleasure.
There are some nice pictures of cats acting like peeping toms. Of course, we are totally anthropomorphizing cats. Only humans are able to be peeping toms. It is exclusively a human trait. Like quite a few human traits, it’s a bit seedy. Cats don’t do seedy.
In a light-hearted vein, here are some peeping tom (cat) pictures.

There is a huge amount of copyright violation on Pinterest. In fact the whole bl**dy site is based on violating someone’s copyright.
This page discusses that sore point further:
