Van Gogh's Bad Cat
The story: "One day Vincent van Gogh took a break from painting a still life of sunflowers and left the arrangement sitting on a table. While he was gone, his cat hopped up on the forbidden table and started chewing on the flowers. The next portrait of the cat showed it missing one of its ears."
The story: "Edward Munch and his cat were strolling through the red light district one evening, when the cat was propositioned by two felines of the night. The bright lights and the saucy sex kittens were too much for him, and he ran away screaming down the street. The look on the cat's face haunted Munch for years and found its way into one of his most famous paintings."
