Jackson Pollock would be so proud.




If you love cats, check out April 14 episode of the Animal Planet show "Must Love Cats" at 8 p.m. The crew visited the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Los Angeles, where they let the cute little kitties get creative using an app called Paint for Cats. Four cats played on top of these iPads to create a digital artwork with their movements. The results were so compelling that the shelter turned those drawings into notecards, with titles like "Study in Feather Toys" by Jackson Pawlick and "Movement in Catnip" by Frida Katlo.

The cards are being sold online for $5.99 a pack. Shelter president Madeline Bernstein says the cats had so much fun, they put used iPads on their wish list so other cats can paint, too.
