CATS Just Wanna Have Fun - The Jolly Birds!
September 24, 1922. BILLY AND KITTY KAT SPEND A DAY AT THE SEASHORE. Billy Kat seems to be very proud about something - wonder if he really went in bathing. Do you like his boardwalk suit? Kitty Kat's afraid the big wave will wet her new bathing suit. Kitty wears a big hat to keep from getting freckles. She thinks her best dress is darling. These paper dolls are very cute after coloring.
October 27, 1901. Illustration by Louis Wain from a story in the children's section in a newspaper. I call this picture "The Three Sisters Go For A Wild Ride". The three sisters are of course, Rose, Violet and Daisy.
