Further proof that cats and space go together like Kirk and SpockS

In case you had any lingering doubts that cats in space are the best: behold this series of children's books, written by one Ruthven Todd between 1952 and 58, chronicling the adventures of "Space Cat."

Via Retronaut:

Ruthven Todd (Pronounced ‘riven') (1914–1978) was a Scottish poet, artist and novelist, best known as an editor of the works of William Blake, and as a writer of children's books, including Space Cat."

Emphasis ours. Because holy crap, talk about a range of interests. Then again, Blake had a thing for cats, himself. Coincidence? Please.
