Painted Cats: 20 Pictures You Won’t Believe

This was not Photoshopped! | Source:

When we first heard about painted cats we expected a few bad dye jobs, but we weren’t even close to the level of actual artistry that happens when people get into painting cats! I know what you’re thinking: are the same people who bread their cats the ones who paint them? We don’t have the scientific evidence to prove this yet, but we have a sneaking suspicion. Of all the ridiculously crazythings people do to their kitties this has to be the craziest. Some of the cat painters say their cats love it, and that the paint brush feels like they’re being petted. Any way you look at it, though, these cats are looking pretty wild!

    the writer of the article used the wrong “bread.” Use “bred” instead.

    There is such thing as vegetable based dye for pets. Not abuse. But probably not comfortable

    Speaking as a professional groomer: Yes cats can sit still for this. Yes it is possible to do some of this artistry on a cat as I have seen it on both cats and dogs. Yes, a number of the photos are photoshopped, easy to tell. No it isn’t animal abuse, often the dyes used are natural with no chemicals. It’s not like they’re being held down, restrained and tortured. Cats are cats, they like the attention no matter how it comes.

  • Shronkitty

    I have had cats all of my life and i would like to know how the artists got the cats to sit long enough for the perfect painting? Love them – the painting – but not sure the cats do.

    • Philipp

      the cats surely not do it. i have to say that the paintings arent bad but i feel sorry for the cats. watch again on the pikachu cat you can see how bad the cat is feeling.

      • Alice

        Please do your research before you assume. The pikachu and most if not all of the others are photoshopped.
