I like this pic of elizabeth

Here's little have-fang-will-travel, kicking back on Sunday AM at the foot of the bed. See how the curve of her ears echoes the curve of the ironwork scroll? That was a happy accident - I didn't mean it to happen.

By the way, the origin of the word "tabby" comes from the French word tabis, which seems to have derived from a similar word for wavy-looking watered silk. And that word seems to have come from a district of Baghdad where such silk was made: "(al-)ʿAttābīyah, quarter of Baghdad where the silk was first made, lit., the quarter of (Prince) ʿAttāb" (Dictionary.com, look up "tabby")
