a kitten awakes

thanks wikimedia commons. {PD:100}
Here's the wonderful Dutch painter Henriette Ronner-Knip (1821-1909) with "Studies van ontwakend katje" (Studies of an awakening cat).  Ronner-Knip was particularly known for her cat portrayals, which she came to later in a most successful career.  You might like to read this article about her, which explains a bit about cats in her time and place.
