Image of the Week: Cats and Monkeys


Today’s image of the week comes to us from The Poetess Archive. Entitled The Cat’s Paw, the image appears in Forget Me Not, A Christmas and New Year’s Present for 1831. Created by artist Robert Graves and engraver Sir Edwin Henry Landseer, the piece depicts a monkey using a cat’s paw to push what appear to be hot chestnuts into a fire. Fear not: as pained as the cat appears to be, a gang of kittens lurks nearby, ready to pounce and save their friend.
