butterflies: kitten toys or not?

thanks wikimedia commons {PD-100}
Beautiful, fragile things: a butterfly, cherry blossoms in a breakable vase, and not least a kitten at the very edge of a shiny, slick table.  Uh, oh.  This moment of calm before the storm is brought to you by the American painter John Henry Dolph (1835-1903). Trained in Paris and Antwerp, Dolph came back to the States to settle in New York City and devote himself to cat and dog painting.  Here's a bit more about him.
