What would happen if history was written by critters instead of people? Well, things would be pretty much the same, but our old portraits would be a lot more interesting (and adorable).
At least that's what the works of artist Christina Hess teaches us with these adorable historical portraits featuring cats, dogs, ferrets and more. Best of all, she covers all time periods of history, stretching from ancient Egyptian Pharaohs to Elvis. You can buy a calendar of her historical art from her Etsy shop for only $6.
