Cats in the archive


Stumbled across this extremely adorable photo from 1940 of two cats in Newark drinking their milk through straws, while doing archival research on the city’s nightclub history.

The caption reads — “GOOD MANNERS: These two mouse destroyers, pets of patrons of a Newark night club have better manners than some of the customers. Instead of lapping up milk in the usual tabby fashion they insist on straws and that’s the only way they’ll take the liquid nourishment.” – Newark Star Ledger, January, 1940.
