    Thanks, Aunt Barb and Uncle Dave! Just goes to show that cats (and art) have always been a little weird 🙂

    Interesting also that the facial expressions are so serene, as if the subjects were looking out on a world with no problems or dangers. Yet life expectancy in the 19th century was rather brief.

    Thank you for your detective work on “Kitty Darling.” I have a framed copy of the boy with cat chromolithograph that you saw first, but did not know the name of the publisher. It’s nice to know more about my print.
