I just received these fab felines in an email and had to share! The images actually come from book entitled "Why Paint Cats" by Burton Silver and Heather Busch. It's sparked quite a controversy about whether this is art or cruelty, which can be followed at www.whypaintcats.com. Some people insist the painting is done with non-toxic vegetable dyes and that the cats enjoy the process, while others are outraged about using an animal's body for creative expression. I found an article that claims that the book is a spoof and the cat's were Photoshopped, however the author's have remained tight-lipped regarding their technique. I'm torn, what do you think?
