And the cat came back...


While sifting through and cataloguing soap advertisements today (some of them highly amusing), I found what I think might top a whole year's worth of such things: An ad for Johnsons' Dyers and Dry Cleaners from the 1920s, cut into the shape of a black cat, sporting tears, bandages, and in particular a cloth bandage over one eye. The cat was supposedly injured trying to leave Johnsons' for another drycleaners (gasp!), and the back warns other customers to take note, or face a similar fate.

Don't you think the customers thought it was a bit odd....??
