Well, you can save the picture to your computer, buy some transfer paper for printers, and make your own!  That's what I'm going to do!  If I may ask, are you an American or English person living in France, or is your English just phenomenally good?
I'm French, I just fell in love with the language when I was little. Thanks for the compliment!

And I think I still have some transfer paper somewhere...

Do not click on this link when you're at work, unless you want everyone knowing what site you're visiting!

What a lovely voice singing the truth about cats! 
  Her name is Cat!  Cat Faber, and she's my favorite singer/songwriter.  You can find many (not all) of her songs at http://www.hwaet.org/, her home page.  Others of her songs are available at http://www.echoschildren.org/, though without the recordings, but many of them include the sheet music.  You can find recordings of most of these (generally by other artists) on YouTube.

Try this one, also about cats: http://hwaet.org/Catmp3s/TodayIsTheDay.mp3, and this one which, unfortunately, doesn't come with music: http://www.echoschildren.org/CDlyrics/IMeantToDoThat.html

Speaking as a geek, I thank you.

As for the Schrodinger's cat thought experiment, I've always considered it to be deeply flawed.  It requires that there be no observer, but places an observer in the box!  You can't tell me that the cat doesn't know whether it's alive!

Schroedinger's intent with the cat thought experiment was actually to display the absurdity of the superposition interpretation of quantum mechanics. Pop culture has largely reversed his intent.

But also, an "observer" in the sense meant in QM doesn't have anything to do with consciousness such as a person or a cat being aware of whether the cat is dead. Rather the point is that observation requires physical interaction. And again, the absurdity of the idea of the cat not knowing whether it is dead until the decay state of the atom is observed was intended to demonstrate absurdity.

I want to put the thread-jack smiley in here, but now I don't see the smiley button on mobile. [emoji]128540[/emoji]

From Lords and Ladies, by Sir Terry Pratchett:
 In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.
