Community Post: Corn Cob Cat Was The Best Thing That Happened In 1951

1. In 1951, LIFE photographer Allan Grant visited the home of an orange tabby who will remain nameless.

2. It’s not clear why exactly, but a corn cob contraption was set up on the dining room table.

3. The cob was skewered while salt, pepper, and butter waited nearby.

4. Who could this be for?

8. Then some guys with movie cameras showed up and made it weird.

9. Straight-off-the-table style was also demonstrated.

10. Proud, proud, proud, proud, PROUD.
