We're All Felines Here, Right?

So, how come no one has made giant paintings of me? Today the Human went to an exhibit of early Rubens paintings, and she took a picture of one (even though the lighting was a little harsh and glary), because Cats! And then she came home and took a picture of Yours Truly.
Honestly, I don't see that much difference.

No difference at all. Except you're better looking.

Well, no, actually - not quite all of us here are felines. I'm one of those upright monkeys with the magic thumbs!

But that to one side, I think the answer to your question is that no one has the confidence to imagine that they could capture you in paint. As you have remarked in the past, the Human's photography skills are not all that strong, but even so, her photo of you puts that painting in the shade well and truly.

And look at that poor chap in the painting. You can almost hear him moaning: "Why? Why can't I find a cat as gorgeous as King Spitty but instead, always end up with these wretched lions around me?" You've gotta feel for him, haven't you? I hope gazing upon his despair caused the Human to reflect on how very very fortunate she is to have the opportunity to work for you.

I don't notice much of a difference either.

They look kind of sad and mangy, Spitty; easy to paint, in other words. No one could capture your handsomeness on canvas.

You my dear Panthera Panthera are deeevine as always! xoxo

Oh, it's you all the way darling. Who cares about lions!

"I'm" gonna make a painting of you, Spitty. I'll put it near the top of my to-do list.

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh I see a difference......you are way way way more handsome than those big kitties!

Hugs, Teddy

All I've got to say, Spitty...is that Reubens was a weird guy!

I think we make the hoomans have the same response, just over stuff like what to feed us rather than am I being fed to lions MOL

Hmmm, well, we would say that if we were THAT BIG compared to Beins, they would feed us better. And THEY would ask to share the heated watery bed that the other way around. Oh, and the deck door would open by paw-touch rather than weerd locks...
