I don't know the exact date of this photo, but it's part of this nice story about an independent bookstore owner named Jeanette Schaffer (1906 - 1988) in Milwaukee. https://t.co/HAZxyY1B8w pic.twitter.com/xuejrqQBSM— Cats of Yore (@CatsOfYore) September 3, 2023
One of the nice things about hunting for cat photos is that there's seemingly no end to them. I just found this stunning shot last night - first time I've ever seen it! 1948. https://t.co/VNGmMvtH1o pic.twitter.com/mI2OPQ3mqb— Cats of Yore (@CatsOfYore) September 2, 2023
I couldn't find a good online source to link to for this so I'll just tell you: it was taken by Izis Bidermanas outside the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, 1950. My source is a wonderful little book I have called Les Chats de Paris by Barnaby Conrad III. pic.twitter.com/ZCZyEhXQ7I— Cats of Yore (@CatsOfYore) September 1, 2023
I probably paid a little more than I should have for this photo but I love it. I love the cat’s position and expression, I love the texture of the fur and the grass/foliage, and I love the ethereal light leaks.

A cat being lowered in a basket. 1933. People used to do this to let cats outside when they lived in apartment buildings. Maybe some people still do? I hope not. It's cute but doesn't seem safe. https://t.co/RIKo86FStp pic.twitter.com/cwVvCJBBch— Cats of Yore (@CatsOfYore) August 19, 2023
