The Cat Art Show is returning to L.A., with numerous kitty-themed pieces from the likes of Kat Von D, Mark Ryden and The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus.

The Cat Art Show, created by journalist Susan Michals in 2014, opens March 24-27 at the Think Tank Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. Guests can expect pieces from over 70 artists depicting and inspired by our furry, feline friends.

On March 26 at 2:30 p.m., L.A.-based historian, artist and all-around fascinating person Paul Koudounaris will be giving a lecture called "Cattastic: Wild, Weird, and Heartwarming Stories from Feline History." Admission is free, though you might want to show up early to grab a seat.

A portion of the proceeds from artwork sales will go to Kitten Rescue in Atwater Village. Also, pro-tip: Kitten Rescue has a kitten cam where you can watch a live feed of the kittens that will soon be up for adoption.
