The cats took Los Angeles graffiti by storm. It was one of the most exciting thing that was happening to LA graffiti. The cats were showing up everywhere, streets, freeways, and sometimes incorporated into pieces. You could not miss them.
Even those not into graffiti took notice. The cats were showing up in really difficult spots that only a daredevil graffiti writer would attempt to get. What was great about the cats is that they were not about getting someone's name noticed, they were always anonymously painted.
They were painted purely for the love of getting up. Not putting the name with the cats also created a mystery. There was constant speculation about who is painting them. There will probably be no more cats, but at least we have pictures of the work. The cats strike back is the number one post of 2010.
