what is a dining room without a cat?

Well, it would certainly not be this lovely Bonnard canvas from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Do you see the white cat on the chair? How about the other kitty's head peeping up from the brown chair at the table? The woman leaning over to look at the first cat is Marthe de Méligny, Bonnard's wife, who was a very shy woman. Here it seems she's relaxed and enjoying her Dining Room in the Country, in 1913.
