The Cat's Meow

The Cat's Meow

It looks like funny cat photos were popular long before LOLCats was an Internet meme.

While Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter weren't yet around, the Rocky Mountain News was already posting social media-worthy "interesting pictures" throughout the want ads pages. This photo from the January 2, 1935, newspaper features a bell-wearing feline caught with her mouth wide open. What do you think of their caption? Can you think of a better one? We'd love to hear it!
