Painted Cats

Some artists use cats as a canvas and charge $15,000 a pop.  As the cat's hair grows and sheds, it will need repainting every three months.  It is claimed that the cats do not mind at all, but I know my own would have no part of it!  Not, that I have ever had the urge to paint mine.....However, if you do, you will need an airbrush, and some nontoxic paints.  I find it a bit bizarre, but we did once paint our dog and the dog DID like it, glutton for attention that she was.

I have seen photos and read about the cat painting before. What fun. Because our son liked the pink panther cartoons when he was small, we painted our white cat with food color and made him pink, which tickled us all pink!
I am glad I found your blog. I saw your comment about "old" in the messages and just had to connect with a kindred spirit!

this is the first time I have seen the painted cats. It is cool yet disturbing at the same time.

Frankly, I would never do that to any animal, but they are quite attractive...especially the skelly cat (of course!!). Must be nice to have all that extra income to indulge your kitties!! LOL My little Chihuahua's wouldn't even consider wearing a little sweater...they're nekked!!! Only put their collars on them when we go out to the vet.

Yes, I think it's weird, beautiful, and disturbing...all at the same time. Legend has it that cat painting has its origins in an Ohio bar. The owner's beloved black cat was blind and frequently stepped on by the customers who could not see him in the darkish bar. The owner painted his cat so he would be safe. Word spread and people came from all over just to see the cat. :-)

Wow, for some reason the blogger gods are letting me post comments to your blog (I've had problems in the past with this). I think you would have to have an extremely mellow cat for this.
