Don't Let the Rat Ruin Your Christmas!

Wordless Wednesday

Take a lesson from the disappointment of the cats in this scene from artist Louis Wain: Make sure the Christmas entree of rat en cage is properly secured!

A Christmas Catastrophe, illustration by
Louis Wain (1860–1939).  A group of horrified
cats realizes their Christmas dinner is ruined
as this sad announcement is made:
“Please, sir, the rat entree has escaped and eaten the turkey!”
Published ca. 1906 by Detroit Publishing Co.
Via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
