Patience and Fortitude

Even the New York Public Library loves cats!  They have a tag on their tumblr for "Caturday", which shouldn't be too surprising considering the iconic lions by Edward Clark Potter out front: Patience (to the south) and Fortitude (to the north).  The posts thereby tagged gracefully straddle the line between intelligent and weird.

I have always loved the NYC Library cats! So majestic, yet approachable--especially if you're a child . . .
