a cat guards a sketchbook

1859:  Emily M. Madden opens her sketchbook, which she will fill with drawings of the cat Mouton, his (?) friends and his adventures.  And since it's his book, Emily thought he'd want to make sure everyone knew.  "This is my book.  Miau-u-u!" This is all I know about Mouton and Emily, but I could not pass either of them by this morning.
