20 Hilariously Ugly Medieval Painting Of Cats

Instagram, Facebook and Twitter make it easier for us to share what we love with the people we love. Nowadays, bombarding your friends’ Instagram feed with your cat’s cute selfies doesn’t take that much time or effort. But back in the Middle Ages, getting a portrait of our beloved cat could take a lot of time and effort. The Middle Ages was the period after the fall of the Roman Empire, where a lot of the Roman culture and knowledge was lost. And from the looks of these cat paintings, knowledge of how cats looked like was apparently lost on them too. These portraits look like they were done by an artist who was either high on drugs or had never seen an actual cat in his life. Either way, thanks to the crazy cat ladies of the 5th century, we get to enjoy these hilariously ugly cat portraits. (h/t)
