happy late world cat day

Looks like World Cat Day got away from me other than a quick mention on Facebook.  As an appeasement offering to all slighted cats everywhere (including the two in my house that have just come back from the vet),  here is a splendid "Head of a Cat" (1823) by the Polish/Russian Romantic artist Alexander Orlowski.  The original is in the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg where I'm sure they enjoy it thoroughly as it deserves.  Here's a bio of Orlowsky if you are interested.
