'Stranger Things,' 'Game of Thrones' and others get the feline treatment

Seattle-based painter and video-game artist Cassie Murphy loves cats almost as much as she loves sci-fi and fantasy TV and movies.

When she isn't working her magic for game developer Spite House, Murphy creates collages re-imagining the casts of popular TV shows and movies as...you guessed it. Fans of "Stranger Things" will recognize this Murphy creation as the cat version of Barb. Poor, doomed Barb.

Winona Ryder's kitten is in the upside-down place

Good thing she's got that axe and, presumably, some string lights nearby.

The boy kittens of 'Stranger Things'

"My favorite character is Will Byers in the 'Stranger Things' piece because I tried to go over-the-top cute with him, since he has so much pathos -- enough to be the motivation behind the whole story," Murphy said. "And I've always wanted to do a cat with a bowl cut."

And, yes, there's more...

'Mangier Things'

The entire "Stranger Things" cat collage, titled, appropriately enough, "Mangier Things," is available for sale on Murphy's Etsy page.

"I wanted to draw the 'Stranger Things' cats because the show is such a skillfully crafted love letter to everything it references and brings back to life," Murphy said.

Yeah, it's cute. But wait 'til you see the cats of Westeros.

'Orange Is the New Cat'

Another Netflix hit, cat-erized.

So, what show or movie might get the Murphy cat treatment next?

Maybe Pokemon Go, Murphy says, "and people always ask for 'Doctor Who' cats, but it's possible some new show or movie will capture my interest! I'm really looking forward to the new season of 'Black Mirror.'"
