"Do you know Cat’s In The Cradle? What’s New Pussycat? How about Freebird? We just looove birds. Freebird!"
Two cute kitties are enjoying a lute concert in this 1912 print of an illustration by legendary artist Randolph Caldecott, the namesake of the Caldecott Medal. The print is in the Library’s Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection, and is from the picture book “Elegy On The Death Of A Mad Dog.” The kid in the middle is a little creepy, but whatever.
