The Secret World of Cats

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

I’m a big cat lover but I have to wonder: do I actually know my cat? Do I know what it does when I’m not at home, when I sleep, or even when I’m at my computer and it’s not sitting next to me?  Cats can do some strange things when we aren’t there to watch them. The creators of the artwork below were an exception to the rule. They managed to capture cats in all of their occasional craziness (or at least what we imagine they really do when we’re not looking). Enjoy!

That sweetheart of a kitty begging its owner for some milk? This is what he does to the neighbor’s dog when you’re away.
