    1 thought on “Why Paint Cats: The Ethics of Feline Aesthetics”

    1. Why NOT paint cats? When you have ten grand burning a hole in your pocket and a cat that can sit still for a painting, this book will give you some great ideas from those trailblazers who have gone boldly before you. The Charlie Chaplin painted on the hindquarters of a cat using its a-hole as the bowtie is the Sistine Chapel of feline artistry.

    2. Now, compared to Silver's "Dancing with Cats", I did not find this book as funny, however I still highly recommend reading it for a laugh. As a therapist I was especially taken by Egypto-Feline Deification Infusion Training (EDIT for short), a therapeutic model sweeping Arizona in which Egyption rituals with painted cats are used to work out trauma and anxiety (yes, you read that right), i.e. Mary had a problem with her fertility so naturally "Exercises included crouching over Casper [the cat pa [...]

    3. I loved this book. It is great for the coffee table and definitely a conversation piece.**********************************spoiler ahead***You have been warned!***(view spoiler)[ I totally believed this.but found out years later it was a hoax or experiment to see reactions.Oh well .I still like it. (hide spoiler)]

    4. What a wild book. I was astounded by how these cats were transformed. Some of the paintings were a little creepy, but all in all it was very cool. The cats are not being harmed so I say paint away.

    5. Your first question here, no doubt, is what a review of a book of cat photos is doing at SF Site. Well, we're glad you asked, because these are fantasy cat photos -- fantastic, even. Besides, we happen to know that a lot of SF Site readers like cats.Let's start with the cover [click on image to enlarge] : "The Unimaginable Florescence of Feline Fluttering," 2002. Vegetable dye on Aristotle, Persian. Artist: Flavia Venezia, New York "An earlier work, "Tortellini per sempre," 2000, which featured [...]

    6. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the huge quantity of very, very funny satire. It's too much to read quickly, but I had to get it back to the library unfortunately. The article says that a lot of people didn't realise that this book is not REAL. Apparently there were many who were trying to find out where they could get hold of the artists and have their own cats painted, and there were others who got all up-tight about the ethics of painting cats. But it's a joke!The over-the-to [...]

    7. I first thought this was just a bunch of photos of painted cats, but it turns out that it's much more scholarly than I realized. The photos are accompanied by exploration of various aspects of the ethics and philosophy of cat painting. It also raises some interesting questions like, are cats aware of their color?Addendum:After reading some other reviews of this book and doing a little research, I am now aware that this book is a spoof and the "photos" are computer-generated. Bizarre! It has a bi [...]

    8. First of all, I thought this book was ridiculous when I first looked at it. Why would people spend time and money painting cats? Then I looked through it and saw that they had made some pretty cool paintings, and the cats didn't look like they were in pain or pissed off. Give this to the crazy cat lady in your life.

    9. I got this book as a Christmas gift. It was a joke, because my family thinks that I may end up being a crazy cat lady. But the book is stunning. The photographs are amazing, and each cat is really truly a work of art.

    10. If you are in need of a WTF moment, I recommend picking this book up. As the title suggests, this book is all about painting cats. Seriously. And the people featured in this book take their art form very seriouslyI just wonder how the cats feel about it

    11. Lovely pictures. It was hard to get the cats to stay still for me to recreate the ideas within, however.
