This blog is definitely pro-cat. They’re neat. They’re silly. They’re frequently featured on old postcards and in vintage photos for the same reasons we put them in memes, videos, and random pictures—because people love their cats.
Hell, I know I loved mine. I still do. Even once they’re gone, you never, ever forget a beloved pet and I don’t think they ever truly leave us behind. There’s always something of them with us.
Today, I’m taking three postcards from my new vintage image bundle and showing them off. You can find A Clowder of Cats, with all 13 postcards, in my shop. Or, download it at no extra cost when you become a monthly Ko-fi supporter.
I think this one is my favourite. Three sweet kittens in a row, and of course one is yelling. They’re always yelling! One other image in this series has the same background, so it’s highly likely that there are a bunch of similar postcards out there somewhere. Knock the background out of this one and you have a nice graphic to use on its own, or further split it into the three kittens.
Silver Sultan is a beautiful domestic long-hair cat. He even looks like he knows he’s being admired. Good on him! He must be asking where his snacks are—a ruler among cats should be spoiled!
Oh, would you look at this sweet thing? This adorable kitten is performing The Mewsic of De Pussy! Ha, I get it. Debussy. I think this graphic would make a great sticker, whether round or square. Every time I sit here and look at different pictures I start to ponder how it can be broken down into its elements, and there’s a lot to work with here.
Which is your favourite?
