This is a beautiful children's book to enjoy reading to a child.
So there I was, looking for some 19th century kitty lit to amuse you and myself, when what do I find but a beautifully illustrated colorful children's book, There Once Was, from 1888 with a admirable illustration of those naughty little kittens. But as I gathered the pictures and prepared to post I saw the frontispiece...
...and thought. "Mrs. Oscar Wilde?". I am exposing a gap in my education but truth will out. (Does it count I read many of Quentin Crisp's work?) But, the surprise aside, it is a wonderful book that should be read to little children. Many of the famous stories are in it that are referred to in literature in many ways...but children I see at school do not know the old stories or nursery tales. I feel sad they will be left out of a long chain of people who know the real Puss 'n Boots (and not just a cartoon puss in a Shrek movie).

This photo could become a relaxation aid. Just remember to look at it every 20 minutes and you will become that centered, smiling individual you have always known was within you.
I may have even shared this photo before...but its worth a second relaxing deep breath as you contemplate the kitty comfort.
