The Cheshire Cat comes . . . and goes

I can't believe I've gone a whole year without mentioning one of the most famous felines of them all, the Cheshire Cat. As the story goes, Alice is talking to the Cat:
“I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly; you make one quite giddy!”
“All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.
“Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin,” thought Alice; “but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in all my life!”
An artist, Ruthann Logsdon Zaroff, who is big fan of Alice in Wonderland, has created an animated version of the cat's slow disappearance. And there are many other amusing illustrations, puzzles, and games on the same site.
