    It’s no secret here at The Next Web that I think cats are pretty funny. In real life, I really dislike cats. I prefer puppies and giant bunny rabbits. But I’m slowly coming around, thanks to my roommate’s new kitty, which she named Wendy Sparklehorse. (N.B. my roommate is not a 13-year old girl.)

    So on this sunny Friday afternoon, I stumbled upon a series of cat-friendly funny photoshop jobs on Laughing Squid, and felt the need to share with you here. I spent about 30-seconds renaming the great works of art below to reflect their feline update so I hope you enjoy.

    Also, if you too like cats, and injecting cat into your photography, be sure to check out CatPaint, one of my favorite iPhone apps, created by Davander Mobile. Buy it here in the iTunes store.

    Now, revisit art history through the lens of the cat-obsessed Internet-era… Happy Friday!
