A Man and His Cat, Nineteenth-Century Style

Wordless Wednesday

It seems that even in the nineteenth century,
people liked to include their pets in their portraits,
as seen in this daguerreotype of an unidentified
man with a cat, c. 1840–1860.
Of course we’re not sure this cat actually belonged
to this man, but it would be odd for the man to
pose with someone else’s cat.
