Preparatory drawing for the image published in A Paródia, 16.01.1901, with the title ‘January’. It depicts a view of various rooftops and attics in the São Bento area of Lisbon, in which politicians and ministers are transformed into cats. This political zoomorphism features the following key players: Hintze Ribeiro (Prime Minister); Mattoso dos Santos (Foreign Affairs); Pimentel Pinto (War Minister); João Franco (leader of the Liberal Regenerator Party); João Arroio and Teixeira de Sousa (Navy ); and the Count of Restelo (Mayor of Lisbon); some opposition politicians are also present: Alpoim, Dias Ferreira, Luciano de Castro, etc. The handwritten caption on the bottom edge was changed in the lithographed version.
