Caturdays at NYPL

The New York Public Library’s Tumblr posted the first of a weekend segment that jumps on the Caturday meme (a day devoted to LOLcats) by using material from their photo archives, such as the picture above. The file copy affixed to the back of the photo is amusing:

Susie, the famous smiling kitten, expresses annoyance at the actions of a too-candid candid [sic] who “snaps” her as she is all set to imbibe a cocktail named in her honor by a restaurant (McGinnis) at the World’s Far of 1940 in New York. The cocktail is 2/3 milk, 1/3 essence of catnip, one dash extract of liver, shake well.
