I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  1. These are all great, but my favorite is the first one from Bacchiacca. This proves cats have been popular as art models for centuries :)

  2. These are really nice. I always like the painting type pictures with cats.

  3. That last cat is a little creepy, but I'm certain painting cats must be a hard job !

  5. Oh my goodness, how lovely is that last painting. Not too sure about the middle one though as to me it almost looks like the cat was added as an after thought and was never in the original sittings.
