http://www.xojane.com/it-happened-to-me/hindu-janajagruti-samiti-threatened-me-over-cat-paintings I just saw this and wondering how people would feel about her paintings. I don't see how they offensive since:
pictures are clean
it doesn't look like she was mocking the gods
and three its just cats she painted.

I am not Hindu, but I cannot see anything offensive about cat imagery.
A god can choose to manifest as whatever they want.
There is no rule which says that Shiva et al. cannot take the form of a cat.1

Imagine what would happen if you posted Jesus as a snake or a dragon? While Dragon Jesus is kind of a bad ass thought, it is a true example of blasphemy. It's a complete disregard for another religion and culture. Family Guy's and South Park's rendition/s of God are also considered offensive.
Also keep in mind that it was an extremist group.1
