There is no date on this photo, but the little tyke on the left is my Grandmother, and she appears to be no more than 5 years old – so I am guessing the picture was taken in about 1915 or earlier.
Yes, it shows the little girl who would become my T.G. – along with one of her brothers, their kitty kitty, and her new little babies.
Here is our Sammy – being a total goof ball, as usual.
In honor of all cats past, present and future… and in honor of our love of those cats… this weekend I am joining my pal Ellen.
We’re going to the Westchester Cat Show!
I can’t wait!
We’ll get to see Hale Bop – “the world’s first feline super model”.

“The show usually has over 200 feline entries of a wide variety of breeds in competition and a large number of kittens and cats for sale or adoption.”
I have also warned Ellen – no matter how much I beg, no matter how much I fall in love – Hubby will not allow me to bring home an adopted Baby.
If you are in the area and plan on going to the Westchester Cat Show, be sure to print out the 1-dollar-off coupon here.

Sammy says “See you there!”
