MORE Vintage Meow-lentines!

It’s that time of year again, when we go down the Pinterest rabbit hole of weird and wonderful Valentine cards featuring cats.

Most of these Valentine cards are PURR-fectly sweet…

Cartoon of girl in a striped chair reaching towards a black kitten with the caption "Can I purr-suade you to be my Valentine?"

But every now and again we find one that seems a bit… over-eager?

Cartoon of a hula girl and a kitten on a beach with the caption "HAWAII VALENTINE. GET A 'WIGGLE' ON 'CAUSE I'M IN A 'DITHER' SAY YOU'LL BE MINE 'CAUSE MY HEART IS ALL A-QUIVER!"

Or even vaguely threatening!

Would YOU send one of these creepy cards?

What on EARTH is that creature that kitty is holding?

Could you sleep at night with this staring at you from your nightstand?

We think it’s best to stick to the basics on Valentine’s Day. Fur CATS sake!
