They're so cute when they're napping. This exquisite Mind of Mog composition of white fur against white brocade recalls the art of James McNeill Whistler -- specifically his "Symphony in White No. 1: The White Girl," blogged here. As we wrote, his was an art of "beauty for its own sake, in the form of pleasing 'arrangements' of shape and closely keyed harmonies of color. This aesthetic credo was widely emulated by other American artists for whom Whistler's paintings came to symbolize modernity and freedom."
For lots more cute kitty pictures -- from 30 different blogs around the 'sphere, including our own -- visit Carnival of the Cats #49, hosted this week by Mind of Mog. This woman doesn't do anything halfway, but somehow she manages to keep her sense of humor when all those about her are loosing theirs:
Thirty sites in the Carnival, took me most of the day to do when not cleaning the cat pee off the canisters. Done mucking with it. Hope I didn’t forget anyone.
