    Fabulously Hilarious!

    I saw this book at the office, and immediately had to find it at my B&N to have it! The colors are wonderful. It's fascinating and funny and I share it with all my cat-loving friends. It will "provoke and amuse, startle and enlighten" as the synopsis promises. Hilarious!

    what excellent, fine b******t!

    After I believed it the first time through, I realized much of the chatter was a terrific send up. I can probably do a similar job in Photoshop, but it'd be easier to paint my cats. I'm still not completely sure it's all digital. Wonderful stuff.

    Cats and art - unconventional and unique!

    I am amazed at the originality and creativity of these artists. And how did they get these cats to stay still longer enough to paint?! I have shown this book to several friends and they are absolutely fascinated by the beautifully and strangely painted cats. What a conversation starter! Cat lovers and artists alike will enjoy this book. This unique book is a keeper!
