pet heraldry, continued...

Thanks again, Wikimedia Commons.
Goodness, what have I gotten myself into? There are currently 82, count 'em, 82 images in Wikimedia Commons: Squirrels in Heraldry. That includes the one up above here, which is the coat of arms of Barguzinsk (Buryatia), dated 1790.
Cats are proving a little less bountiful. That will take some digging. Though I did find an unusual modern variant called the (ahem) Tigger.
