a herford kitten for a lazy sunday

material in public domain
This quiet morning I feel like sharing this sweet, silly illustration and poem by good old Oliver Herford (1863 - 1935), whose Rubaiyat of a Persian Kitten I've shown you before. I didn't even know about this poem till I stumbled upon it in Cat stories: retold from St. Nicholas, edited by Marion Hamilton Carter (The Century Co., 1904), p. 20.

So sweet!
