1911 Book of Funny Cat Pictures

People have been captioning funny cat photos for more than a hundred years. This one, titled "I AM THE QUEEN," is from a 1911 book called "Kittens and Cats: A First Reader," available for a free download from Archive.org.

can't decide if this old tome is cute or creepy...

I'd rate it creepy.....we grew up with 50's TV shows like the smiling ED MC Connell show...featuring Froggy the Gremlin and Midnight the cat ( a live cat secured in a puppet cat body) delightfully demented and creative

Cats back then had a much better command of the language than the “haz cheezburger” cats of today. I thought the teaching notes at the end were very interesting.
