The New Yorker Book of Cat Cartoons
4 journalers for this copy...
Among my favorites:
Charles Addams' cartoon showing a man reading before a fire, feet resting on a bearskin rug, and his cat beside him, curled up in its cat-bed - with a mouse-skin rug.
The classic Soglow cartoon showing a cat playing with yarn until it manages to knit itself into a sweater.
"The Vigil," by Anthony Taber, a two-page comic strip showing cats going out at night - and turning into guardians watching over their house.
Donald Reilly's cartoon showing a shop front with "Cat-Free Bookstore" in the window.
Robert Mankoff's series of drawings showing a man yelling "Scat!" at a cat that's caterwauling on the fence - at which point the cat switches from yowling to scatting!
*** Released as part of the 2013 Places We Can Go release challenge. ***

I must admit I've never really got the appeal of The New Yorker's cartoons - the humour always seems to either be wildly over-my-head pretentious or boringly predictable. But a cat book is always appreciated :-)
