The fact that some domestic cats are able to make marks with paint has always been explained by biologists as an instinctive form of territorial marking behaviour. Busch and Silver support the view that some cat's marks are aesthetically motivated and should be regarded as genuine works on non-primate art.
As well as being an unprecedented photographic record of the artistic cat at work, 'Why Cats Paint' also explains many aspects of everyday cat behaviour for the first time. Why do cats sit for long periods in self-absorbed reflection? Why do they purr? All these questions are answered within the very understandable context of art.
