Washington: The latest entrant in the presidential sweepstakes, Morris the 9-Lives cat gets the full treatment from photographers during a press conference at the National Press Club. The only feline candidate in the field. Morris’s campaign is being managed by Eleanor Mondale, daughter of the former Democratic presidential candidate.
Check out this post I put up on BuzzFeed Community today: 35 Cats at Sea.
Above: Photograph by Beadell, S. J. (Lt.), Royal Navy official photographer, Nov. 1941. From the collections of the Imperial War Museums (item A 6410), via Wikipedia:
A group of sailors surround the ship’s cat “Convoy,” as he sleeps in a miniature hammock on board HMS Hermione. According to the original caption, “Convoy” is in the ship’s book and provided with full kit. The cat obtained his name because of the number of times he accompanied the ship on duty patrols.

This photo is part of the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Samuel J. Hood Studio collection. Sam Hood (1872-1953) was a Sydney photographer with a passion for ships. His 60-year career spanned the romantic age of sail and two world wars. The photos in the collection were taken mainly in Sydney and Newcastle during the first half of the 20th century.
Other great photos by Sam Hood here.
