Book Review #8.......

The book review from the Poi Tribe this week is given by
who is reviewing the book Why Paint Cats,
by Silver and Busch

Here is a close-up of me, Shadow.

Here is my favorite one, the PURPLE BOA. Now I would
never sit still for this, but obviously some cats don't mind
being painted. The artists use nontoxic food colouring
on the cats fur.

One chapter is on the deification of cats. Mom likes these
picts that show cats painted with Egyptian symbols.
Ko Ko would look good permanently painted like this,
and then shaved. He is my nemises.

Now even though many think there is absolutely no
way to improve on a cats look that nature gave us, which
I heartily agree with, some 'beans obviously can't resist.
This book is has interesting photos. There is even a plaid
cat. Mom likes the one painted like the Dias de La Muertos
skeletons in the front of the book.

Well that is all, THE END!!!!!

I love your pink boa, but I find the idea of painting cats rather bizarre. Cats look great just the way they are.

I'm glad to hear that they're using food coloring, even though I was hoping it was Photoshop.

I like the way your tail is in the picture with "The End."

Shadow I'm so glad you did this post.
I have a video on my blog of the painted cats, and I believe some people thought it was done photoshop
or paintshop. I'm also going to Amazon right now to order this for mommy's brother he loves the photos.

Oh My! I don't think that I'd want anyone painting my beautiful fur... What will those crazy beans think of next!

We were wondering where those photos originated because people keep emailing them to us. We didn't know there was a whole book about painting cats. How tacky in our humble opinion. We like us just the way we are.

Thank you for the review Shadow. My rats have already warned me that I'd better think twice about painting them!

NO WAY our human will ever paint us! We will EAT her first!
But Shadow, you look very beautiful with that pink boa around your shoulders...
