15 Paintings of Cats That Will Make You Think WTF
This may be difficult to believe but the world was not always so crazy about cats as we are today. In our modern society we are able to appreciate, love, and obsess over cats in ways that may even be a little concerning but if you look back in time at how cats were depicted you'll see that they were not considered graceful, beautiful, elegant creatures that enriched our lives. These medieval paintings depict them looking like little monsters and honestly we can't stop laughing at how awkward the cats of years past were portrayed.
