“A Wonderful Cat – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals” published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The anecdote accompanying the illustration reads thus: “This affectionate puss is head nurse to her sick mistress. She has learned to know the different hours at which the patient ought to take medicine or food; and at night, if the attendant is asleep, she will call her, or gently nibble her nose until she wakes.”
