    Unfortunately, this appears to be a spoof ad from the British comic mag Viz.

    Cat Jesus in heaven has scary eyes.

    If only this were real. It would be awesome to have on my wall to watch people double-take and twitch.

    “Cat Jesus in heaven has scary eyes.”

    It’s because he’s totally about to smite someone. Probably for masturbating.

    If my knowledge of cat genetics is up to speed, this poster pretty clearly establishes:

    1) That the story of the Virgin Birth is true (or at least that Joseph isn’t Cat Jesus’ father…)

    and

    2) that God (or whoever the father is) is a tabby cat. As the proud companion of a tabby, I’m going to go with the theory that it’s God.

    I think my favorite part would have to be the Judas kitty at the Last Supper. (Fifth from the right, if I’m not mistaken.)

    The cats on crucifixes kind of freak me out.

    hello. thanks for sharing this wonderful moment in cat history, much like when dogs played poker. and elvis lived on velvet… and for sharing your source.

    I would recommend beginning your search for this somewhere in the deep, deep south.

    Heh, my husband has fondly remembered this magnificent creation for years (he was a big Viz fan). So thanks for posting it, so I can finally see it with my own eyes! I was actually starting to wonder (and worry) if he’d imagined it…

    This is TOTALLY the kind of thing I get as gifts, because “I know you like cats so much!”…

    Life of Christ apparently equals…

    Born, Ate Supper, Executed, Returned in white robe.

    Most amusing, Miss Jill (said in my best clipped British accent). Hilarious and I want one, too. Equally as funny is that I noticed it because on the headlines to the blog it falls in the categories so dear to my heart that I had to look it up: animals, pets, cats, feminism, religion and weirdness….

    Perhaps it will serve as a poster for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new show: “Jesus, Cat Superstar”

    These were actually available to buy, I know, I have one. Not sure if they are still available tho! Really, really bad quality tho!

    As Ian says above, these were available to buy from Viz a few years ago- along with a load of other tasteless crap. The only way I can think that you would be likely to get one now is by keeping a watch on eBay and one may come up for sale- if you are very very lucky.
