Paul Newman and his surly cat. With a face(s) like that - we couldn't resist sharing. Anyone for some ice cream?

Cleopatra is a regal little lioness; sitting on her regal throne in front of her own personal library. Rather like her namesake.

Another fun Caturday post to go with our Little Lions!

Last week's Caturday...This drawing from the late 1800s originally ran in a book of nursery rhymes, and is now in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. It illustrates a story about a crooked man, with crooked furniture, a crooked window, and, of course, a crooked cat. It’s perfectly weird - happy Caturday!

How precious is this. This little lion looks so cute but somewhat peeved by its new do. Let's see your little lion's most outrageous haircut! #NYPLlittlelion
