Postcard Friendship Friday




This week Beth has a beautiful little girl posted to start off Postcard Friendship Friday. I looked for a beautiful little girl and stopped when I saw this postcard. She definitely has the cat by the tail! Poor kitty. Just wanted his fair share of dinner!


Cat By The Tail Postcard


This postcard is from The Cat Postcard Book (a celebration of cats, with 30 full-color portraits to mail, share and cherish) published by Running Press Book Publishers.
The back of the card reads:
Mischievous Kitty, 19th century (American).
Advertising trade card for E. G. Southwick & Co.
Northampton Historical Society, Northampton, Massachusetts.

Happy PFF!

What IS that cat holding in its mouth? A squid? a slug?
New, will the cat drop it to bite the child. I see trouble ahead.

"OFF THE TABLE" is a constant chorus around here. We had to laugh at this one, since it's a trick we haven't tried yet.

What an adorable postcard! I hope the cat got away - and the improvised high chair is hysterical - tied to a high back chair with a scarf? Yowza!

Happy PFF!

What a fun little trading card! And love your banner- I think it's rather new isn't it? Either way, it's great!
