Mad Men & Crazy Critters - The Cat's Pajamas

 Ted Bethune, 1963, thanks to Bob Caruthers

Cats are such good looking, funny and familiar animals.
So it's no wonder that most, if not all, the best commercial artists
have used cats to promote anything from shoes and fabrics
to home appliances and spark plugs!
