Kitty Cat: FOUND!

This may be the case, but even though I started looking at New Yorkers from September/October/November 1994, I finally found the cat in an issue from several months before: The March 14, 1994 issue.

Are you paying attention? Somebody write this down: The March 14, 1994 issue of The New Yorker. Don't let me lose it again!

Original design: FOUND!!! YAAY!!!!
