Dear Reader: this has been a week of absolute madness in the Bunce household! Drama, trauma, and news of all kinds (including the very best kind—which is not quite ready to share). I am behind on everything, and so it seems the perfect time for a Cat Break.
Last Friday, October 29, was National Cat Day in the US, and to celebrate, Algonquin Young Readers featured our own Peony from the Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries, and her cohorts Anton & Cecil from Lisa Martin and Valerie Martin’s delightful series.
What better way to observe the festivities than with our favorite Internet pastime, looking at cat pictures! And so for your viewing pleasure, here is a second collection of Victorian cat imagery.
We’ll begin with an all-new category: Advertising Cats—Companies shamelessly exploiting felinity for monetary gain.
Not to be outdone, we also have Vehicular Cats:
And, of course, Sporting Cats:
Some Early American Cats
Bookish Cats (a favorite!)
From my feline crew to yours, here’s wishing you a happy belated Cat Day (every day is… ahem.)!
