Cats On Cards

Vintage greeting cards- you already know I love them! All different kinds from different times with different subjects. Today's subject: Cats! This large card, below, is part of a boxed set. I had some of these in the early 70's, and I found more on eBay recently. I think they would be so cute framed and hanging in a nursery:
I love this one with the "rhinestone" eyes so much that I don't think I'll ever send it to anyone!
This one is simply adorable:
I am always tickled to find one with a little plastic adornment like this one with the dustpan!
Again - just cute:
I had to include this one. sorry the envelope is so yucky, but I thought it was rather unusual with the envelope the same shape as the card. It was given to my mother-in-law, probably in the 60's, I'm guessing. I've never seen one like this before:
The inside is imprinted with "Everything was wonderful, Thanks!", and then signed The gals of Phi Gamma, Modesto.

Cute, Cute, CUTE!!! These are just wonderful. I love cats too and my mom is a crazy cat lady! I used to live in the Oroville foothills, in a big ol' log house . . . it was fun to find your blog. Moved to Oregon 3 years ago and love it! I had twin great aunts whose names were Sierra and Nevada. They were born in Grass Valley in 1898. Anyhow . . nice to visit your blog!
