Fat Cat Art – Cat’s Guide to Classic Art

Zuzanna Stańska 24 January 2017 min Read

There was one fat cat in the world that made all art in the world better. And it’s not my cat unfortunately.

It’s Zarathustra. Have you heard of (or maybe I should write: seen) him?

[Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Zarathustra the Cat has recently passed away]
