What I love about vintage cat photos is that the cats aren’t groomed and sleek. They’re scruffy. The boy in this photograph has been made to wear his fanciest outfit – heavens, a satin bow and ruffles! His hair is clean (rare in an age when baths happened at best once a week.) But the cat? Nothing slick and shiny about her. The cat looks to be a useful mouser. I can practically hear the self-satisfied purr.
The Vintage Hen
Love chickens? Love vintage? Combine the two and that’s what you’ll find here. You might also find quirky, crafty, retro and recipes. And maybe something fun with a rabbit on it. Or a goat. It’s that sort of blog.
