Christmas Cats

I have copied below a design based on a Victorian Christmas card, and a transcription of the verse. "Sausages or soup" indeed!

  • Wishing you a Jolly Christmas

We are jolly little kittens and we caterwaul and fight
Here our portraits have been taken in a group,
So mind you don't forget us when we vanish from your sight
And are used perhaps for sausages or soup.
