The card continues a popular cat theme associated with the suffragettes. Unlike the kitten postcard (‘I want my vote’) the message on this one is less supportive of the suffrage movement.

The card is marked ‘Series E42’. Printed by ‘BB London’: Birn Brothers Ltd were a London based printer and according to one website (metropostcard) were in business from 1905-1964, at 67-70 Bunhill Row, London. They produced a variety of postcards and Christmas cards along with pictorial books. Their postcards were printed in Saxony and Bavaria and this one is marked as ‘Printed in Germany’.
