This charming scene taken from the Rose of Sharon for 1852 shows a mother and her young toddler in a simple kitchen filled with common kitchenwares. The toddler reaches to pat a cat who sits on the floor beside a bowl of milk with one of her kittens. The mother, who sits in a chair, holds her baby so that he does not disturb the cat. A second mischievous kitten pulls at a cloth draped on a stool.
