Delightful Postcards From The 1950's Showing Dressed Cats In Human-Like Settings

From the 1940s through the 1960s, the Alfred Mainzer Company of Long Island City, NY published a series of linen and photochrome humorous cat postcards illustrated by Eugen Hartung (1897–1973), sometimes referred to as "Mainzer Cats". These postcards normally illustrated settings that are filled with action, often with a minor disaster just about to occur. While the dressed cats were by far the most popular and most plentiful cards, Hartung also painted other dressed animals – primarily mice, dogs, and hedgehogs.

This Is How Cat Obsession Looked Like Way Before LOL Cats And The Internet Age

Before LOLCat, Grumpy Cat, Longcat, Nyan Cat, and all those other famed kitties of the internet age, there were the felines featured in the 1911 book, "Kittens and Cats: A First Reader". The book is a fantastical collection of eerily dressed feline, along with captions on each portrait.
