I am not a big fan of illustrations of cats in human clothes, poses, etc. I have to admire, however, the detail involved in recreating some famous paintings with cats as the subjects instead of humans. I noticed that the illustrator/author made sure to feature the tails of each of her subjects, which I thought was a cute touch.
