Why? Why paint your kitty to look like a Pikachu? Because its ridiculously cute, that's why!

Oh, the things some people do to their pets. Whether we dress them up in ridiculous sweaters, force them to wear sunglasses long enough to snap a photo, or paint them up from head to paw to look like our favorite Pokemon, we will always exploit our pet's cuteness.

It turns out that this picture was edited with Photoshop, but with all the other crazy things our animals get put through for our enjoyment, is it really that farfetched to think some one would actually do this to their cat?

If this hadn't been Photoshopped, this little feline would deserve a plate of prized, japanese blue fin tuna sashimi for sitting still long enough to have this done. Maybe he deserves it anyhow for being so adorable. What do you think?
