When her mother passed away, Russian artist Svetlana Petrova received the inheritance of a lifetime: Zarathustra. This bodacious ginger tabby cat appears to have a predilection for famous works of art, and, in an attempt to, presumably, nurture her pet’s budding interest in art history, Petrova began the series Fat Cat Art. This collection of doctored images features Zarathustra in each and every prominent painting, a husky and often hilarious digital manipulation.

Zarathustra’s presence in high art (everything from the Mona Lisa to a portrait of Catherine II) has become so popular that several of the images will be included in the show “Russian Extremes—From Icons to I-cats,” as part of Stonehill House’s Russian Days festival in the United Kingdom.
