Cats are always artful, cats on books are cute, black and white is striking - mix it all up in a modern-art photography kinda way, and Id say its worthy of being art. But Id rather consider it artful and keep it as an idea to draw or paint.
The Dalai Lama's Cat' - a novel by David Michie. A fascinating read. In Michael Carroll's words: 'What a joy to spend some intimate time with the Dalai Lama, glimpsed through the devoted eyes of his adventurous cat'.
