I fell in love with this vintage sepia print which I played with to bring this cat lady and her ginger moggie to life.

There have always been cat lovers and products for cats but we’ve come a long way!  There are modern improvements and a wealth a new knowledge. I’m a long time collector of antiques and ephemera and these are a few items I came across recently. This charming book has appeal for any contemporary cat lover. Pawtraits, anyone?
