When Russian artist Svetlana Petrova lost her mother, she overcame her grief thanks to her mother's 22 pound ginger cat Zarathustra. Truly a cat of enormous purrsonality—and fully deserving of a coauthor credit, Petrova insists—Zarathustra became the subject of a series of classic artworks hilariously reinterpreted by Petrova to include him. Whether snuggling shamelessly with Venus in Titian's Venus of Urbino or exhibiting complete disdain as he skirts away from God's pointing finger in Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, this fat cat seems so natural in these images, it is as though he was missing from the original paintings all along, and the improved works all reveal something of the soul of a cat.
