Harry Frees took hundreds of these photos, using his own and neighbors' pets. They were used for greeting cards, and published in collections. They were also used to illustrate children's books, including "Four Little Puppies" and "Four Little Kittens," which are still in print.

Um, OK, these cats are dead, right?

Is this not getting creepy?

[Ninety-nine years later it's probably safe to say that, alas, they are no longer with us. Snif. -Dave]
