Mr. Kaatskill from the Catskills

Greetings from the Catskills, Mr. Kaatskill.

This postcard has an address on the back, but was never mailed.  The date written on the front is 1906. I hope "Frisky" liked it when he was shown the postcard.  :D

The Hugh C. Leighton Co. is the manufacturer.  It was printed in Germany, No 2336.

The Catskill Mountains are a large area in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of New York.  The Catskills occupy much or all of five NY counties (Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan, and Ulster).

I think I have the Mrs. Kaatskill mate! The handwriting on the bottom looks the same. It says "This looks like Fluffy" and has a date that looks like 7-18-06. I bet we bought it from the same dealer. It is also addressed on the back but unmailed. I also have a Mr. with no writing that I had before i got the Mrs.

They are both 1906, so undivided back. Your other Mr. Kaatskill card must be from 1907 when they made postcards so you could write on the back with the address. (So no white at the bottom of the card for a message) Now to find the matching feline for that card !
