the housecat, for reference

public domain
This is an informative illustration of your average everyday Huiskat, or Housecat (biological nomenclature given as Felis maniculata domestica), as seen in a selection from A. E. Brehm's book of 1927: Het Leven der Dieren, Hoofdstuk 4: De Roofdieren (The Lives of Animals: Chapter 4, The Carnivores). (The language is Dutch.)

Just in case you've never seen one?

I love older illustrations like this.
