It’s been a sad few days for me, because I recently had to say farewell to Margaret, my constant companion of the past 17 years. She was the sweetest, snuggliest cat I’ve ever met. I’ll miss her terribly.

This is an 1880s trade card for Dr. Thompson’s Celebrated Eye Water, but I like to imagine that the girl is sharing one of her favorite perfumes with her cat. (The larger bottle on the shelf behind her may indeed contain some kind of Eau de Cologne or other toilet water.)

Hug your furry friends tight today.
