It can be difficult having to leave pets at home when you head off to work.

But Taiwan-based artist Elise has ensured that you never have to leave your feline’s side again with her incredibly realistic cat statues.

Elise creates custom-made statues for cat lovers and the detailed works of art take around 30 days to create.

Elise wrote on her website: “My two lovely cats are the reason why I decided to sculpt cat statues for people who love their pets and want a statue to commemorate their friendship, just like me.”

Take a look at the statues below.
