Straight Out of a Storybook

DSC_0043

I'm always on the lookout for good vintage cat stuff, and couple of years back, I picked up this kitten book published in 1943, Little Lost Cat,  at our local book store. I pulled it off the shelf the other day while doing a little dusting and realized the kitten in the story bared a strong resemblance to a certain kitten currently in residence her at the IBKC.

Now, doesn't that look like our little Tegan?

  1. Maybe the book kitten is Tegan's grandmother? Love the last shot!

  2. Tegan is a natural at modeling. She even has the sassy look down pat.

    1. Nothing beats the real thing--except when the real thing is waking you up at dark o'clock for breakfast. ;D

    2. Wow, that is a strong resemblance! Tegan has the cuter nose, though. ;)

  9. You have had so many VERY cute kittens, Laurie, but little Tegan is something special. In looks at least :-), she seems to me the essence of what makes kittens so very heart-meltingly adorable. What a darling! Give her a kiss for me!

  10. She also looks like Abner in The Contented Little Pussy Cat...a great favorite of mine as a child. :)
