That guy again

Buzzer was a busy boy. I hope he was pretty mellow, most of the cats we had would have tolerated this sort of handling for about 2 minutes before blood started flowing, particularly with strangers.

Buzzer the Cat

Must have had quite the purr. (S)He looks so content and relaxed in all Arnold Genthe portraits. Two examples in Shorpy: here and here. I have one cat that loves everyone and one that only loves me, a misancat? This is definitely in the pretty girls category like the Gabor sisters!

Blondes Instead of Brunettes

The 1945 20th Century Fox Movie had the dark brunette
Dolly Sisters portrayed by the very blonde Betty Grable
and June Haver. If you like a good, old-fashioned Hollywood
musical with lots of songs and minimal plot, it's an enjoyable flick!

Goodbye, Dolly

On June 1, 1941, one of them had a sad ending.
