The Cat's Meow

There are no ordinary cats.

The Internet is full of cats, true? So is art, as you can see in The Cat: 3500 Years of the Cat in Art by Caroline Bugler and this Cats from Art History Tumblr. I have a 15-year-old lap cat who has been overseeing this post:

Wonderful art works.

And our cats said "It's about time you featured us!"

BTW, they particularly like the "Vista of Peace" and "A Saucer of Milk."

Ha ha ha, loved that giant blue cat in Germany!

Finally, a rival to the Blue Dog by George
Rodrigue. ;-)

Aww, kitties. One of mine is currently sick. :( Have to go to the vet later.

What a sweet post, Tabatha! I am a dog person now, due to my husband's severe cat allergies, but I sure miss having kitties!
