Painting Cats

a painted cat - some people pay upwards of 15,000 dollars to have their cat painted in exotic patterns. These artistic displays last only a few short months and have to be done again - would you pay 80,000 dollars to have a temporary piece of living art?

Rather, painting on Cats. Using your cat as a living canvas. Is it beautiful art, or cruel eccentricity? One thought might be the chemicals in the paint harming the cat when it grooms...but I guess they use henna and vegetable dyes - so pretty safe as far as that goes. There is a book called "Why Paint Cats" the ethics of feline aesthetics. Check it out at www.amazon.com

Yes, but who does the painting on cats? And why is there no information anywhere except for the booK "Why Paint Cats"??? Is this too, a hoax?

No, I do not believe it is a hoax. It probably has not caught on outside of the very rich community (let's face it, most of us could not afford to have this extravagance on our pets, even if we did want it done)

I wouldn't paint on my cats. I do paint pictures of cats as well as other things, but I would never paint on my cats. I don't care if it is a safe thing or not. I guess everyone has their own things they like to do. I think it is mean though. Cats are to be loved and not treated poorly. I don't think a cat would like to be painted on.
