Lorenzo The Cat: Funny Pics – Cute photos of Lorenzo the cat, the celebrity feline who loves to wear clothes and have his picture taken.
Lorenzo the cat is a 2-year-old Maine coon cat who happily models the latest fashions for his owner, photographer Joann Biondi.
His photos have won him thousands of friends or fans on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube.
He’s been in contact with Paula Poundstone, Yoko Ono follows him, Alanis Morissette tweets him and his Facebook profile says he is in a “relationship” with Matilda the cat, the most famous guest at New York’s Algonquin Hotel.
The 14-pound cat currently can be seen hanging in the Little Critters exhibit at the Nave Gallery in Somerville, Mass.
In October, a group of Lorenzo the cat portraits will go on display at Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture in Delray Beach, Fla.
After this “Still Life With Cat” image was captured, “Lorenzo played soccer with the grapes, ate the basil and knocked the oranges on the floor,” his owner recalled.
“Lorenzo is an amazingly beautiful cat and without clothes would still be hard to resist, but it was the clothes that really made him fit the theme of my show. His stoic poses and the way his little legs emerge from cloth just make me smile,” said V Van Sant, curator of the Nave exhibit.
Adopted as a kitten, Lorenzo The Cat lives in a Coconut Grove, Florida, apartment.
Lorenzo used to steal Biondi’s underwear from the laundry and run through the apartment. One day, while she wrestled some clothes away from him, she flipped a tank top over his head. He poked his nose through an arm hole, held his head high and paraded around, staging his first fashion show, Biondi said.
A freelance journalist, Biondi started taking pictures of Lorenzo in different shirts and settings. She put them on MySpace and “he made friends with donkeys, birds and people.”
The whole idea is to make people smile, she said, but she still tries to take pictures that “maintain his integrity. I don’t want him to look silly. He always wears real clothes instead of costumes.”
Lorenzo does have a couple of rules — no pants, no hats and the top button on a shirt has to stay open.
