Color Me Cat-Crazy
Images edited with CatPaint
Let me begin by making one thing clear: I’m a dog person through and through. Cats don’t make me go gaga the way puppies do, but I do consider them by far the weirdest, most fascinating and hilarious species out there. I can’t explain it, but kitty-inspired web memes provide me with endless entertainment. Cats in suits, cats with hats, cats in odd places… you name it, I look at it and can’t stop laughing.
So naturally, when a friend posted a recent Facebook photo with a mysterious cat plopped atop her head, I couldn’t contain myself. The source? CatPaint: a genius iPhone app allowing users to add kitty friends to any picture, any time.
After spending the most rewarding 99 cents of my life, I now find myself taking pictures with kittens in mind. Yes, I snap photos solely to place a fat feline on someone’s shoulder, or to position one in the center of a date’s dinner plate.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not a self-professed cat person. But being able to quickly add a cat to the top of my nervous black lab’s noggin (at least in still form!) has brought the feline’s life purpose of odd entertainment value to the forefront.
