{5 Comments}

While medieval artists had no problem painting religious scenes, portraits of royalty and naked ladies, cats offered an altogether different challenge. It looks like the medieval painters never laid eyes on a real cat.

    Many of these pictures were drawn by per Renaissance small children, while others were accurate reproductions of living cats. Ugly lot, what?

    Cats are highly evolved. They just looked that ugly in Medieval Times

  4. I think cats were thought of as evil and drawn grotesquely in some cases, or too small to draw accurately, but some of these are pretty laughable. I like the judgmental dog though.

  5. Still better than anything I can draw
