Cats know their popularity on the Internet is fleeting, so they're doing whatever they can to keep things interesting. These cats decided it was best to pay homage to the classics by imitating great centuries-old works of art. I think they're onto something. Take a look. 

Cats reading, cats cuddling babies, they make sure to hit all their marks. Internet meme legitimacy is safe for one more day. Check out the gallery for more cats inspired by art, and the full gallery here. I'm in love with the cat in the fruit bowl.

Which one is your favorite?
