ebay score: kitty painting

I've been on a hunt for the perfect cat painting and I can tell you, it isn't a simple feat. Just browse Ebay or Etsy and you'll find hundreds of pieces that are eligible candidates for the MOBA. But after some patience and luck I can now happily say that I am the proud winner of this yummy/tacky little gem:
"Oriental short hair white", 8x10" oil on canvas board; 2008; T.F. Lu
When I came across this auction I was instantly reminded of a photograph by Terrance Koh from the 2006 VICE photo issue.
This image titled, "Gilbert with herpes in eye" is nothing but amazing in it's subtle grossness and tranquility.
