Lincoln & Cats

Brief interruption here, folks--I am furiously looking in my literal mountain of reference and source material for something I have misplaced.

Here is an obviously faux pic of AL with a cat.

Lincoln was most definitely a cat man. One of the White House cats was a little girl named Tabby. She showed up for a State Dinner one evening, twining herself around "Papa's" ankles. Lincoln bent down frequently to feed her a small  nom from his golden fork. 

Mrs. Lincoln scolded her husband for using a gold fork to feed a kitty. 

Our President responded, "If it was good enough for Buchanan, it's good enough for Tabby."

I say, "Huzzah!"
