    Crafty Felines

    Hi PT friends! From today's Trenton newspaper.....

    A Los Angeles animal shelter that lets its cats chase toys on top of iPads hope the digital art created by the movement will encourage donations of money and tablet computers.
    An Animal Planet crew visited the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles for the April 14 episode of "Must Love Cats" where they documented how four cats used an app called Paint for Cats.
    The results were so compelling that the shelter turned them into notecards. The cards with drawings named "Study In Feather Toys" and "Movement In Catnip" are being sold online for $5.99 a pack.
    Shelter president Madeline Bernstein says the cats had so much fun, they put used iPads on their wish list so other cats can paint too.


    I'm not a technology fan but love this story. If anyone knows what the link is, would you share it? Thanx!

    What a cool idea! The one piece of "art" pictured, was quite pretty IMO.

    This is a wonderful fund raising idea! I like the art too!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    I loved the "artwork" and I thing it's a wonderful idea, but not for my home. It would be just one more thing for them to fight about.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Dumb question...the cat's claws would not damage the screen or scratch it up?
