Vintage postcards of kittens by C.W.Faulkner

Over the last year I have posted a couple of blog entries featuring cats. The first was a vintage Christmas card of a black cat carrying a Christmas Pudding, closely followed by a selection of artist drawn vintage postcards of cats and kittens by E.L.Beckles. When I came across these last week I knew straight away what my next blog post would be.

These are wonderful vignette style, vintage postcards of kittens. They are all published by C.W.Faulkner. None of them have been posted so I'm afraid I can't tell you anything about the date, but if I had to guess I would say pre-1940. My favourite is probably the one called 'Is dinner ready?' These kittens seem so very well mannered ... when my cats are hungry they reach up my legs, or stalk around their empty plates.

As usual there are 100's more vintage postcards on my vintage postcards web site
