Wordless Wednesday

You’ve heard of life imitating art? How about cats imitating art?

Case in point:

You may have seen the Buzzfeed post featuring other cats imitating famous pieces of art. I think Athena fits right in there with the best of them, don’t you?

Not only that, but I can almost hear her say that oft-quoted  line from the movie Titanic: “Draw me like one of your French girls.”

I had to look that line up to make sure I got it right. Because I wasn’t sure if it was “Draw me” or “Paint me.”

Which was how I stumbled on a meme I didn’t know about:

Draw me like one of your French cats.

I guess Athena’s not alone in her elegant posing.


What about your pets? Do you ever catch them in interesting positions?

    I think Athena has the pose perfectly. Maggie sleeps on her back all the time and something get’s in some very contorted arrangements.

  8. I think Athena has the pose purr-fected!

  9. Athena is worth painting. 🙂

  10. You’ll have to get someone to paint her in that pose!

    😀 I wasn’t sure what to expect when I clicked the link, but the cat photo really surprised me. I laughed so loud my husband came down from upstairs to see what I was going on.

  16. Robin says:

    Athena would make a purrfect piece of art! My kitties do pose from time to time, but their poses often just look silly. I love that they make me laugh 🙂

  17. Sandy says:

    Love that – Athena is really something!

  18. aahahahaha! Athena, you are too funny. We like your picture better than the original!
