A note about The Cuddlywumps Chronicles

This blog is written and maintained by Miss Cuddlywumps, a fluffy-tailed calico cat who is both classically educated and familiar with mysteries. She receives creative input from the Real Cats and clerical assistance from She of Little Talent (old SoLT, a.k.a. Roby Sweet). Comments or complaints should be addressed to Miss C rather than to old SoLt (Ms. Sweet). Ms. Sweet accepts no responsibility for Miss C's opinions.

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.
