Dear friends, today We are happy to announce a winner of our breathtaking competition, opened 16 February by FatCatArt and Tuxedo Party of Canada Cat Welfare Society : a WORLD COMPETITION to choose The Best Cat for the SPAY DAY poster!
Damien the Cat, from Tucson , Arizona, USA, won the unique chance to promote World Spay Day and to enter in the history of art!
The young winner, only 11 months old, was photographed by his human assistant Emily Taylor and his image charmed Us at once.
Now Our beloved brother Damien is featured at the poster, based on the painting “Fall of Man” by Hugo van der Goes. At Our poster cats are not tempted and refuse to eat the apple, suggested by the serpent. They prefer to stay in the garden of Eden, i.e. they choose to be spayed.
We, Zarathustra the Cat, play the role of Adam, and Our brother Damien plays Eve!
OUR SINCEREST CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER!
We are happy to have aside Our beloved brother will send him the poster printed and signed by the author.!

Photos of cats in competition were shared in comments at Our Facebook page
Our friends shared photos of their cats, doesn’t matter female or male, in pose similar to Eve’s pose, and We chose the best photo, the Damien’s one, which is now used in the poster.
Many thanks to everybody who shared photos of their wonderful cats!
We loved all the photos shared, and all magnificent felines presented, but Our doom was to choose only one.
It was a very hard choice!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
