Artist Creates Cat-Filled Print Full Of Famous Internet Cats

This. This is art. 

Meet the talented Rebecca Salinas, a painter who adores cats. And it really shows. 

We had the privilege to speak with Rebecca and discover her inspiration behind this masterpiece!  

"I've always loved and drawn cats my whole life. I am in advanced art classes now at UCF, in Florida, and finally have the freedom to choose my own content. The theme was 'populated space' and I immediately knew I wanted to do a painting full of cats. I'm in a Facebook group called 'This Cat Is C H O N K Y' and I love a lot of cats that are famous from there."

Rebecca also mentioned that two of her own cats can be found in the painting, and that she used submitted photos from the 'This Cat Is C H O N K Y' Facebook group as pose references!

"I really love it when I can laugh at my paintings, and this one is one of my most funny paintings yet," added Rebecca. 

According to Rebecca's post in the C H O N K Y group, there are 50 recognizable cats in this one painting alone! Do you think you can pinpoint them all?

Thanks for sharing your lovely work with the world, Rebecca! Check out more of her amazing art on Instagram or Facebook

Tribute To The Legendary Grumpy Cat And Lil Bub

2019 was a tough year for the cat lover community. It was in this one year that we lost two of largest cat legends that the world has ever known:

Tardar Sauce (Grumpy Cat) and Lillian Bubbles (Lil BUB). 

This is a tribute to them and their legacy. 

May they rest in peace. We'll miss you forever.

In the very words of Lil Bub's owners, "On the morning of Sunday, December 1st 2019 we lost the purest, kindest and most magical living force on our planet. BUB was cheerful and full of love laying in our bed with us Saturday night, but unexpectedly passed away peacefully in her sleep.. I have always been fully transparent about BUB's health, and it was no secret that she was battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection. Even knowing this, we weren't expecting her to pass so soon or so abruptly without warning. I truly believe that she willingly made the decision to leave her failing body so that our family would not have to make that difficult decision ourselves. 

It is impossible to put into words the profound effect that BUB has had on my life, on the lives of thousands of homeless pets, and on the lives of those of you that have cared for her as if she were your own family. She taught me everything that I know about unconditional love, she brought my wife Stacy and I together, she's the reason we have our beautiful children Rosco and Lula, and she has been a constant source of warmth and love in our lives for the past 8 years. To say that our family is devastated would be an understatement. 

But most importantly, BUB has made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare, and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. She has literally saved thousands of lives (both pets and humans), she started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological research, she's helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, and has spread a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. And even though my heart is absolutely crushed by her graceful departure from planet Earth, I know that her sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. 

Dearest BUB, I will never forget your generosity, your limitless supply of love, or your uncanny ability to bring so much magic and joy to the world. I am forever honored and humbled that you chose me as your caretaker. Please visit all of us in our dreams often. GOOD JOB BUB."

We love you, Lil Bub.

The special needs feline died in her sleep on Sunday, after "battling a persistent and aggressive bone infection," according to her owner. Rip, Lil Bub.

If you don't know Lil Pub, you're missing out on some serious adorableness. Lil Bub is a unique cat who has overcome great challenges. 

She has a bone condition but that doesn't stop her from her determination! If anything, it just makes her even more amazing. And while she might not be a graceful as some other cats, she moves with an angelic stealth. 

Lil Bub gets sh*t done, regardless of her condition and because of that, she is our inspiration!

Happy belated birthday, Lil Bub! Bub's owners celebrated the occasion by making her a "cake" out of her favorite Halo food! And if that wasn't enough, sharing the cake with the cats over at the Bloomington Animal Shelter! Sounds like a pretty special birthday!
