It was an essential part of Laura's day, especially during treatment, to thoroughly peruse the newspaper comics. Laura liked cartoons and comics in books and magazines too. Especially appealing, and at times mysterious to Laura in their meaning, were the cartoons in the New Yorker. We had the New Yorker cat calendar one year and there was one particularly memorable cartoon that Laura and the rest of us liked.
By arrangement with the Cartoon Bank, we will bring you that very cartoon in the next post. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. (Hint: if you are a cat owner, we are sure you will.)
