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.
