Resemblance

Miss King looks a bit like famous 20th century actress Billie Burke did about the same time; both sported the same Gibson Girl-style hairdo and sweet smile, a wholesome kind of beauty much favored in those days.

The claws will be out in a second

Buzzer is ready to GET DOWN!

Orange tabby

If anyone colorizes this, Buzzer looks like a classic orange tabby. Miss King isn't too shabby either. Love that smile.
