Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute!!!!!!! This is one of the cutest books I've read! The "artists" are very talented and I "admire" their work! I never knew there was such a thing as cats painting, but this book proved me wrong! If you're a cat lover like myself, this book is for you! You'll fall in love with cats all over again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats DO paint! This book is both interesting and hilarious. It describes the different art techniques and illustrates them using cats. The photography is superb and the text is both educational and interesting. My copy got damaged and I am so glad to be able to replace it. A great gift for any cat owner/artist. Any cat owner will know that it is true...cats DO paint!
