If you like cats, especially fat, if you are a Warhol fanatic, if you do not dread to look at a badly sketched pussycat on a wall, you can have a watercolour-and-offset-lithograph-on-paper cat executed in 1957 by the Factory's founder for 6,000 quid ($8,898), buyer's premium included.

The only thing you have to do is to attend Christie's December evening prestigious Contemporary sale in London and raise your hand not too early in the bidding war. You might even strike a good bargain as the pussycat had been conservatively estimated between £3,500 - £4,500.

And guess what ? When your friends ignoring it is by Warhol will start laughing and asking you "how much you paid for that crap" and when you will tell them "9000 dollars", the only way to quench their hilarity will be to say "Yes but it is a Warhol". Then you will rest assured that you had the last laugh and maybe some of your friends may find the pussy quite exciting.
Everything is so relative in the Art market...
