Mid-century postcard of a posing Persian puddy tat

Here's a Natural Color Card from Kodachrome of a serious-looking Persian cat for your Monday evening enjoyment.

It was mailed from Philadelphia to York, Pennsylvania, in 1953 with a red, two-stamp John Adams stamp. The short note, written diagonally and in cursive (with circle dots on the I's), states:
We brought Danny along & if its [sic] nice we want to take her to the zoo tomorrow.
Dot & Emory
Given the postcard, I want to believe that Danny is a housecat that was going to visit the lions and tigers and other big cats at the Philadelphia Zoo. But Danny is probably a human.
