Postage Stamps with Cats (and an aardvark!)

I went to a stamp show a couple weeks ago and purchased some postage stamps with cats on them. You can click all the images to see a larger version.

These are from Burkina Faso (in western Africa).

I also found these animal stamps from Ghana. It’s not very often that you seen an aardvark on a postage stamp!

New Show on Bird T.V.

I saw a new bird in the yard today.  It’s called a Spotted Towhee.

He was searching in the bark for food.SpottedTowhee1.jpg
With his rust colored sides and spotted wings, he’s one of the more colorful birds we’ve seen in our yard.

If you want to see a really good photo from a bird site, there’s one here.

I hope he comes back.

Dining room lookout

The top of the dining room hutch is a great lookout. I wish I could get up here by myself, but I have to be content with the few times a year Mom will put me up here (and get me down).

Raven’s 14th Birthday

Today is the day we celebrate my birthday. I don’t need toys and I don’t eat treats, but I did get a lot of extra snuggles and loves from Mom & Dad. We’re all very happy and thankful that I’m currently healthy and enjoying a quiet kitty life.

Last post we said we’d have some fun, and this is it! I was having fun watching my Dad be silly. What did you expect from a 14 year old lady cat?
