Cat as Santa Claus Postcard

Title

Cat as Santa Claus Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has an off-white background. On all sides there is a thin tan border. In the upper center of the postcard is a cat wearing a red Santa Claus jacket and hat, each with white fur trim. There is a thin band tied around the cat's waist and its two front paws stick out of the sleeves of the coat. The cat is an orange/brown tabby with large teal eyes which look down towards its right paw. It has a bemused/angry expression on its face and its whiskers are seen on its cheeks and forehead. Its ears stick out from the hat and are turned toward each side and back slightly. It appears to have a slight smile on its face with the right corner of its mouth turning up more than the left. In its right paw it holds a small decorated Christmas tree. In its left paw it holds the neck of a green bag which goes over its shoulder. Behind the cat is a green faded background radiating out from behind it. Below the image of the cat it reads "With best Wishes for a Happy Christmas" where the "W" in "With" is inside a sketched piece of fabric hanging from a small horn. From this fabric extends three pieces of ribbon: one which goes off to the left side of the card, one which is short and nearly reaches the "f" in "for," and a third which is long and tangles itself in the "H" of "Happy" and the "C" in "Christmas." Under this is printed "From" and someone has handwritten "Percy Jo Arthur" onto the dotted line.
