Summer is here and kids everywhere are heading off to summer camp, where they’ll sleep in bunks, come together for handicrafts, paddle canoes and feast on s’mores around an open fire. When I think about summer camp, I can’t help but picture those cute, kitschy kitty-postcards from Alfred Mainzer.

Some of my favorites are the ones depicting the waterlogged shenanigans of cats frolicking in the lake. My mind then wanders to all the other silly activities that would happen at a summer camp designed just for cats. And of course they’d pen postcards home to their families, telling them all about the goings-on.

Here are eight of the postcards they’d probably drop in the post box.
