“Dogs and cats living together - mass hysteria!” Yes, love and harmony are in the air for Caturday. In honor of rapidly approaching Valentine’s Day, here’s an image of an adorable kitten who seemingly hearts a cute dog. And the feeling is clearly mutual. Everyone now … “Awwww.” This drawing was originally printed in The Illustrated London News in 1867 and is now in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. And it gave us an excuse to quote the movie “Ghostbusters,” which was filmed at our landmark building! What a great Caturday!
We here at NYPL have been giving a lot of love to cat people recently with our very popular Caturday feature (see the first two installments here and here). So today, at the start of a holiday weekend when everyone’s minds are already wandering, we’re throwing some cuteness and love at the dog people - here is a cigarette card from our collection featuring a huggable nine-week-old Chow puppy, along with a random cute kid. “They are the most adorable of puppies, just like little bears,” the back of the card from the 20s or 30s says. Awww. So cute. Don’t cute animals make you smile? Don’t you love us for putting up cute animals? Then vote for us as a Mashable must-follow non profit, gosh darn it!
