Let me tell you a little story about those pictures! The "Cat" belonged to a man named Boris Said. He was an all around eccentric, if you will. He raced cars, and new how to hook up with anyone and everyone. At one time he dated Ally McGraw. and for interest purposes, she later ran Mel Sokolsky's studio! If you look you will find that Boris aka Bobby Said has a son, who no surprise, races cars today, or as of the recent years. Bobby Said and my Mother Ruth Neumann became life long friends. He passed away a few years before Ruth aka Derujinsky. The image with the woman with the slanted glance at the "Kitty" is Miss Ruth! My mom!
