These Famous Artists Really Love Their Cats
English author Angela Carter, known for her dark feminist stories, always told people that she wrote her first novel when she was only six years old. After winning the Somerset Maugham Award in for her novel Several Perceptions , Carter used the proceeds to travel to Japan following her estrangement from Paul. During her two-year hiatus in Tokyo, she owned a tricolored black, white, and orange cat to stave off loneliness. At one point in her life, Carter also owned birds named Adelaide and Chubbeleigh. She allowed them to fly freely around her sitting room while cats Cocker and Ponce watched longingly from the garden of her London home. Carter also channeled her artistic spirit through pencil and crayon drawings of cats on postcards she shared with friends.

Throughout history, artists have been inspired by the presence of certain other beings in their lives that motivated them to create their best work. In general, photographs that depict the relationship between animal and owner are often well received. Of particular note is the unique rapport between the two that each photo captures. Sculptor Diego Giacometti makes full on eye contact with his cat, as if in the midst of deep conversation. What exactly is this power that cats have to ignite creativity? Assuming such polarized lifestyles, artists can channel energies and organize their workflow in unconventional ways. Clearly, the loners and rebels of the human and animal worlds are soul mates.
