Cat postage stamps from Great Britain

It’s been a while since I’ve shared postage stamps from my collection. These are from Great Britain.

These stamps honor Edward Lear who wrote poetry such as  The Owl and The Pussy-Cat.

I thought the pen-and-ink artwork on the stamps of cats in daily life was unique and very pretty.

p.s. Hopefully I will do something blog worthy and will be featured on my blog again soon. My last appearance was over two weeks ago!

      I started collecting stamps when I was around 10 years old. I have a lot of U.S. commeratives, But now I focus on a few topics, mostly cats, wildlife, and nature.

  2. Bill collects stamps; he started as a kid. These are really nice!

  3. Love the stamps! Makes me want to mail a letter

  5. These stamps are great! The mom only has the cat stamps that were issued she thinks in the 1980s or 1990s.

    My Tiger cat looked like 30 cents up there 🙂

  10. Oh, wow, those are adorable! Thanks so much for sharing. It must be a lot of fun to receive mail with kitty stamps on it.

      I don’t get these on letters, I purchase them at stamp shows or online. But when I send mail, I do use stamps with animals on them.

    Those are very cool!! Maybe it’s just time for an updated photo of your floofiness that has grown back in, Raven? 🙂

  12. We love all of those! Thank you for letting us see your special collection!

  13. Those are great! Somewhere around here we have a bag of stamps… the hubs used to collect them as a kid, but he wasn’t very disciplined about it, and now they’re just in a bag. Need to go through them one of these days. Another project for retirement…. (Maybe there are animal ones in there!)

    These are cool! My human somehow wound up with some 1 cent stamps with kitties on them. Of course she can’t bear to ever use them (and usually buys Forever stamps anyhow for first class postage).

  15. I have a massive stamp collection also but there are copywrite issues on posting some of them depending on age and country of origin.

We enjoy getting comments.
