1878 – Cat and Starling


“Cat and Starling” is a full page book plate taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878.  The short anecdote accompanying the illustration simply reads: “A little boy had a tame Starling who was very fond of riding on the cat’s back. At night he would sleep with the cat and kitten; and once when the servant came down in the morning she said that she saw the cat with her paw round the bird keeping him warm.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
