TBT

I was going through old photos for a reunion and came across one of my favorite photos of my first cat. Mr Jinks was a large yellow tabby.  This was before we had a color camera!  He is laying on the telephone table.  This is in the late fifties or early sixties.  The phone may have been upgraded to a rotary dial by then.

Oh do I remember telephone tables and rotary dial phones oh and party lines. You might pick up the phone to hear a neighbor chatting too. I had a wee chuckle when I read that.

Mr Jinks was a most handsome kitty!!!
Hugs madi and mom

Mr. Jinks was a cutie. I like how he's looking a the camera and is in the famous loaf position.

This brings back good memories of telephone tables and old telephones.

It is fun to look back on the cats we used to have. We sure remember the old phones. You all have a wonderful day.

Oh, our Mom loves old photos of first cats.... and just as soon as she can figure out where she misplaced her old black and white photo of her first cat, we'll make sure she posts it. Fair warning: She's been looking for it for years.
