Cat postage stamps from New Zealand

While I was taking my Sunday easy, Mom & Dad abandoned me for a few hours and went to a postage stamp show. Mom collects postage stamps that have cats on them and she found these stamps from New Zealand. At first we weren’t sure if the stamps pictured a cat, a dog, or a marmot, but we decided it must be a kitty cat. The New Zealand Post website says these stamps are from 1991 and were created by a student designer. Mom thinks it’s fun to find stamps from countries that anipal bloggers are from. Our furiends at Rumblebum are from New Zealand and we have a few other stamps from there. It will be fun to try to find stamps from other countries were we have blogger anipals, or maybe find anipals from countries where we already have stamps!

Here are the other stamps we have from New Zealand. As you can see, they really love their kitties! I also like seeing black cats included in artwork because it helps fight that silly notion that black cats are bad luck.
