The 18th Century Material Culture Resource Center has a nice collection of cats images from the 18th century. Well worth checking out:

I just love stumbling on cats during my research. Recently, I was looking for a few 18th century engravings to illustrate one of my presentations when I came across these wonderful images. They were created by Jacques de Sève, one of the main illustrators for Buffon's Histoire Naturelle, générale et particulière, avec la description du Cabinet du Roi.

I can't believe I forgot to mention that there are "#twitterstorians" who regularly post images of their cats under the hashtag #academicswithcats. Yours truly is often there posting pictures of his own cats. Did I mention we now have a second cat since last year? Little Diderot!
