International Cat Day 2022
Today, August 8, is International Cat Day! In celebration of our feline friends, we’re sharing this lovely wood engraving of a Siamese cat by English wood engraver Chris Daunt. The wood engraving was made for a new book by David Blamires titled When in Doubt, Wash! and printed on the publication announcement for the book from Incline Press. 
The back of the publication announcement features a poem by English poet Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) titled “On the Death of a Cat: A Friend of Mine Aged Ten Years and a Half” and an image printed in yellow of a cat wearing a bow chasing a ball of yarn. The poem is credited as having been “Printed by Thomas Mouser at his Catnip Press”—cute! 
Also included here are my two cats, Smudge and Beez. They bring so much  joy to my life (not to mention fluff and cuteness) and I hope you have cats (or other pets!) in your life who do the same! 
Now go pet a cat!

This is mildly blasphemous, but in the Toy Story universe do baby Jesus figurines from nativity sets think they’re actually Jesus, or are they just like. Babies
