Love to Love Mew, Baby: Cool Kitties in the 1970's

I found another small collection of vintage cat pics from the 1970's. Can you dig it? They appear to have been taken in 1976/1977 in 1776 Sweetwood Drive in Broadmoor, California. I thought I'd share them in honor of Good Friday. Or, as you atheists call it, International Waffle Day.

According to the calendar, it's November 1976—and this must've been the Thanksgiving turkey.

If one thing drives blog traffic, it's cats. Cats, cats, and more cats. Here's a big pile of 'em. You can see more vintage cat snapshots featuring these soft rock-loving felines here.

Babies are also fairly popular on the internet, albeit not as much as cats (and rightfully so). But just to be fair, here are some babies to go with the cats.

It must be cool to be the same size as a cat. Infants are so lucky.

I'm not talking about movin' in / And I don't want to change your life / But there's a warm wind blowin' the stars around / And I'd really love to see mew tonight

  1. Great collection and highly entertaining comments. All I remember of the 70's was a brief stint preggers and a kitten I loved so much named Cindy Kittybaby Squeaker Toy. I didn't know how to really take care of a kitten so as much as I adored her, she didn't live long. But on a brighter note, the child I bore in the 70's is still alive, unlike the one I bore in the 80's. That's another story but it was fun writing about it on your blog, Mike! Thanks for the memories!
