Oh, sweet Google. You can now search historic photos from the archives of Life Magazine here. Of course I had a field day with the word "cats". Most images from the 50's included Kim Novak, the Los Angeles Cat Show, and Grandma Moses. Thank you Life Magazine for excellent cat documentation. Especially of a cat eating corn on the cob, that is SOMETHING. Good to get the shot from 3 angles, minimum!
From my friend Ellen's line Modern Lovers.. she's made a Top Cat shirt.. love love love. My friend Abby is modeling it. Oh, and this other model Heidi Auf WiedersehenKlum makes it work on more than one occasion. Ellen's designs are hand screenprinted, original illustrations.. T-A-L-E-N-T. You can buy Top Cat shirt (among other super awesome designs) here
Chester's new favorite past time is sitting in the sink. Especially when he sees me about to brush my teeth. He drinks from the faucet, cause it's just the best cat water fountain ever. Often while I am washing my face, he will wet his paw in the stream of water and wash his face simultaneously. Did someone say YouTube?
He has been fond of cozying up in round, hard, smooth places since he was a very young boy.
