Origami (from ori meaning "folding" and kami meaning "paper") is the Japanese art of paper folding. These artists really know how to breathe life and animation into a simple sheet of paper! These origami cats are kitty-cat crafts taken to the next level: they are truly an art form. But for all you cat crafters out there, here are a few amazing origami cats to inspire you to scratch that kitty-cat crafting itch.
