1919 cat: freeloader or jobholder?

The jury stayed out on this one as far as I can gather. On December 16, 1919, the New York Times ran a small piece about the Mayor of New York being put on the spot for the $6.50 work of milk the Dept. of Education cat was drinking over summer vacation.

The cat declined to comment.
