Punch Cartoon - cat mummies

I found this the other day whilst looking through old editions of Punch.

"A cargo of 100,000 mummified cats has just been landed in Liverpool, to be used as Manure" heralds a quote from the Daily Paper.  The cartoon shows terrified farmers being confronted by an army of mummified cat 'ghosts' after using 'mummy' fertiliser.



Punch 15 February 1890, 81.
