In a Window

This cat, peering through a gap in a curtain, made me think of that beautiful set of Ralph Irving Lloyd cat lantern slides, taken in Brooklyn a century ago.  Today's cat must watch the world behind a pane of glass, while the Lloyd gang roam free. Cats on rooftops, cats on fences, cats sunning themselves on window ledges.  Outdoor bruisers, they're kings of the backyard.

Cat named "Alert" - circa 1910 (Brooklyn Visual Gallery)
