Batty / Writer's Block

Batty / Writer's Block

This amazing postcard of Batty the cat (aptly named - look at those ears!) came to me from the venerable PostMuse, and it has to be one of my favorite postcards ever received. A black cat (named Batty) plus a typewriter - what could be better?

It is from the series "Funny Cats Postcards" from Stewart Tabori & Chang, and this photograph is called "Writer's Block" by Joyce Ravid in 1992.

Batty looks like she is ready to type, or berate a writer for not typing!

  1. Love this card!! And what a look - I would immediately stop doing whatever I was doing and do what Batty said I should do... no wait, he's a cat!!
