Perfect for cat lovers and appreciators,  this tea towel reflects Mark Twain's love of cats.  

In his lifetime, Twain (real name, Samuel Clemens) owned up to 19 cats at the same time. When away on travels, Twain ocassionally rented cats to temporarily fill the feline-void he felt in the absence of his own cats who remained at home.  Cats appeared throughout Twain's books including Puddn'head Wilson from whence comes this tea towel quote:  A Home Without A Cat- and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat- may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove title?"


Designed and hand printed by Barrow Bookstore just for you. 

~18" x 24" off white cotton base with black ink design. 

Sewn in hanging loop in top left corner of tea towel.
