There are numerous sources that have posted this image of a woman holding a cat:

The picture is of 1920s movie extra Nadine Dennis and her cat "Pussums."

It is not Wanda Gág!

Pussums was a minor celebrity in her own right, and she often posed with her costar Jeanette MacDonald:

Different hat, same cat. Same glasses, same kerchief.

Jeanette definitely looks more glamorous with makeup!

Here is Wanda Gág with "Noopy", the main model for "Millions of Cats":

"When I'm calling youoo-ooo-oo-ooo." There is a resemblance between Janette and Wanda.

But Jeanette never had bangs, and Wanda (after 1920) always did.

I am guilty, as you know, of once posting that picture and calling it Wanda Gág! But I was corrected.

You saw the error of your ways and are forgiven.
