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!

    So pretty! Do you collect just a certain kind of stamp?

    • Raven says:

      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

    • Raven says:

      It’s rare to get a real stamp in the mail anymore. Mostly it’s just prepaid stamps on bills. Boring!

  4. We really enjoyed seeing those pawsome stamps 🙂
    Raven, you don’t have to do anything special to blog.
    We are happy to just see you,even if you are snoozing .

  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.

    • Raven says:

      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.
