Really, they take cats...
Apparently, there is a burgeoning subculture of people who like to paint their cats.
Read that last part again.
Paint their cats.
Paint. Their. Cats.
They take paint. They grab their cats. And they use them as canvases. Don't believe it? Take a look at this:
There's even a book. It's called "Why Paint Cats?" and it's currently sitting at 2,706th on Amazon's sales list. The hardcover edition has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide. The authors, yes, there's two of them, even have a website, which includes an image of a clown on a cat's booty. Here's what one fan has to say:
"Being a cat owner myself, I adored the idea of making those svelte, gorgeous creatures even MORE beautiful....with those artistic designs. Needless to say, everyone I've shown the book to, has been enthralled and delighted. Please, do not let those 'nay-sayers' stop you from showing us more beautiful painted cats! They want to take ALL the joy out of life!"
Is there anything else that needs to be said? Didn't think so.
