Cats mean different things to different people. People frequently describe themselves as “cat lovers” or “dog lovers,” and the twain very rarely meet. But what is indisputable is the fact that creatures of the now domesticated feline species have been stars for eons.“Cats have intrigued human beings ever since they first encountered them,” notes Michal Paz-Klapp. “Look at the ancient Egyptians. They worshiped cats. In Medieval times, they associated cats with witches and with all sorts of magic.”Paz-Klapp has a vested interest in the furry animals on both a personal and an artistic level. She is the curator of the “Kishta! The Image of the Cat in Israeli Comics” exhibition currently on display at the Israeli Cartoon Museum in Holon. (Note: Kishta means “Scat!”) The compact show includes works by such leading lights of the Israeli comics art community as Dudu Geva, Omer Hoffman, Uri Fink and Eitan Eloa. One of the best-known Israeli comics creators is Belgian-born Michel Kichka, and he was largely responsible for instigating the Holon display. The exhibition revolves around a book he published last year as part of Holon’s 75th anniversary celebrations. The book is titled Hofit and Alon in the Footsteps of Meshi Who Got Lost in Holon.
