Baroque Meets Modern in Cat’s Photography
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
The hottest name in the art scene right now is a young prodigy named Scraps. She’s making waves by translating old world painting techniques into photography. In her latest — “Self Portrait with Labrador” — Scraps is particularly inspired by the works of Caravaggio.
Gallery owner Anita Perez explained the artist’s nods to past masters. “Look at the beautiful use of chiaroscuro, the strong delineation between light and shadow,” she said. “That’s a clear homage to the great Italian painters at the turn of the 17th century.”
While the techniques may be old, the vision is certainly new. “Scraps is a great technician, but the political statement of her photos takes her work to the next level,” Perez said. “This self portrait shows such optimism about the possibility of friendship between cats and dogs. A moving, moving piece.”

Cat Finds Toy Mouse Unconvincing
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
After realizing she was hooked on mice, Mollie signed up for a stint in rehab. The transition to cleaner living has not been easy for the house cat. She’s only been playing with toy mice, but the felt and plastic are not giving her the same thrill as chasing the real animal.
Best Buy employee Rick Albert said he’d seen a cat matching Mollie’s description in the store several times in recent weeks skulking around the computer section. “At first I thought she might have been a shoplifter, but then I realized she was just sniffing at the latest mouse models,” he said.
