Cats and Dogs - Sunday Stamps

Apologies for missing out last week but I had no stamps to show other than those from Valentines you saw last year.

Dogs have featured on a number of my stamps that you've seen already and you might remember dogs and horses here

This time I looked for cats and remembering Blake's 'Tyger, Tyger burning bright - In the forests of the night,' I came up with these:

India
Malaya - Perak
It may be stretching it a bit to class tigers as pets especially if you keep goats.

Norway
For other chosen pets, cats, dogs - whatever visit Viridian's sunday stamps 58

I LOVE goats. Just the other day I saw a small herd of goats by the side of the road not 10km away from my home(the herd boy was no where to be seen.) I have always wanted a goat but whenever I say so my dad responds with 'why don't you get married then?'. hahaha. (Not very complimentary about his own gender is he?)

The Tiger stamp from India is beautiful.

Tigers are cats, right? Just very very big cats.
Thanks for participating.

I wouldnt mind keeping a tiger as a pet honestly...as long as his stomach is always taken care of, there shouldnt be a problem ;)))))

I suspect the goat is more likely to be domesticated than the tigers, but who knows?

Joy said...

Tigers go so well on stamps, probably safer that way for the goat.

If I had to chose, I would definitely pick a goat over a tiger as a pet! I like that old style stamp from Malaya.

The tiger stamps are really nice.

the tiger stamps are wonderful.
(it's taken me about 8 attempts and I'm still not sure I have the word verification correct, they are making them impossible to read).

LisaB I'm having trouble too. We are not the only ones judging by comments I've seen on other blogs.

Ana said...

ha ha, ok, so Im not the only one having troubles deciphering those blurry black-shadowed words, just to prove i am not a robot :)

funny though, i think that on several occasions i did not really get them right, coz they were impossible to read, but instead 'preview' i press 'publish' and the comment gets published..
