    Can anyone tell me the name of the painting by H.H.Couldery which won the Publisher’s competition in 1881? Information I need for my forthcoming publication.

  2. Not sure how/where to download the free book.

  3. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your Pinterest boards! You were one of the first pinners I followed when I started on Pinterest in 2009 and I have enjoyed pinning to the Christmas Cats board. If you think I might be a good fit for any others you have, please let me know. Thanks!

    I have a print of his “Stealing the Cream” Just loved it when I saw it at an Antique store in East Bloomfield, NY. I grew up in that area and have lived in the Midwest since 1962, Presently near Bloomington, IL. I just love his works. Thank you for sharing.

  13. The drawings of those cats are so beutiful! I love them very much!

  14. I’ve only signed up today and haven’t had time to read anything else yet. What I was doing was looking up a particular poem by Petrarch and discovered that he loved his cat so much that he had it mummified and kept it in his house! I think you’d find the story by looking up ‘Petrarch and his cat’.

    I have two female cats (probably a mistake) who both love me but don’t love each other! One is about two feet long and weighs a stone, possibly a
    Maine Coon cross; she’s called Squeaky as she says eee, eee, eee as soon as she comes through the catflap and all the way upstairs until she finds me. The other, Pussycat, is a mixture of things like Abyssinian, with pretty little white paws and a spotted coat.
