Lolcats of the Middle Ages

Lolcats of the Middle Ages

Speaking of medieval manuscripts… This post on cats in medieval manuscripts, from the British Library Medieval and Earlier Manuscripts blog, is too good not to share.

I particularly like this manuscript illumination of mice laying siege to a castle defended by a cat, from the Book of Hours (catalog with additional images here).
