Let's face it, we're living in a world where cats are one of the most entertaining things ever. So it's not surprising that they are used in various contexts, and art is not an exception. 

This Chinese illustrator and UI designer Effy Zhang decided to recreate some of the famous paintings with a twist - instead of drawing the people who are originally shown there, he drew our little feline friends. His series "Famous Kitty" features such works as J. Vermeer's "Girl With A Pearl Earring," "American Gothic" by Grant Wood, or Leonardo da Vinci's "Lady With An Ermine." Scroll down to see more!

That's pretty cool. I wonder how the artist gets a cat to sit like that in the costume long enough to paint her.
