Your friendly Curator does not mean to cheat, but fave blog Strange Company has beat me to all varieties of excellence today, not least with their vintage image find. Check out Thomas Bewick's musings on the cat. Find the link on the Shoreditch Dog Show, or the crazy cat ladies who terminate with extreme prejudice. Lots of other curiosities to enjoy there (ooh look, Isabella de'Medici), so have fun learning a new thing and then go to a party and share it! And give your pets a soothing scratch from me and the Museum crew.
