Art Theft Website  
Yeah, this stuff again. The site is Anime Galleries, and I've seen quite a bit of uncredited stuff in there, including the FMA Kitties. It's not so well arranged, I ran several searches, and didn't recognize everything, but I did find a couple of offenders...

This was the biggest one, with the FMA kitties and several other pieces I recognize at least vaguely.

This has one I recognize and a few that look like fanart from somewhere or another.

This has just a couple familiar ones.

I know there's things I didn't catch, though... Any rate, the site's TOS does state that claiming someone else's work is against the rules (in here). There's pretty specific guidelines for reporting in there.

You draw the kitties? That's great! I love your little breed analysis too, but I've never been able to find the Winry and Ed kitty profiles. I weep. ;.;

On a latter note, I don't think s/he was intending to steal the art, s/he probably just wanted to share it with all her/his friends on an online folder. This is shown by the anime offical art and screen shots she has uploaded. Anyone with a brain can see those are not hers/his. And the boy/girl never says "This took x amount of time to draw, it was so hard, this is sooo mine!!!1111one" so I really don't mind it, even though she neglected the rules of the site. So I say mail her/him and tell then what they did, and inform them to make his/her own site to post the art, tripod is free and *relatively* pain free, great for gallery sites.

I'm done blabbing now XD Just my two cents.
