But don’t go thinking this is all playful pussies and cute kitties – according to the organisers, the exhibition is both “a meditation and a celebration of the feline form that goes beyond heralding felines as domesticated companion, and instead explores their role as muse and inspiration.”

Well stick that catnip in your pipe and smoke it!

The Cat Art Show is taking place from 25th January – 2nd February at 101/exhibit, 6205 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
