Meet Some Cats on Stamps at World Stamp Show 2016

Like tigers and other cats? Like collecting things?
Come to the Javits Center May 31 to learn about
lots of  cool tigers on philately, like the one on
this stamp from Russia.

We are so excited to let you know about a special gathering happing in New York City from May 28 to June 4. It’s the World Stamp Show (that’s WSS-NY2016 to those in the know). This large show happens only once every ten years, so you know it will be special. But why am I telling you about it in a blog post that is supposed to be about cats?

Cats on Stamps Study Unit to meet

Sally Anderson-Bruce,
photographer for these shelter
pets stamps, will be there.
Well, I’m telling you because the Cats on Stamps Study Unit (COSSU to those in the know) of the American Topical Association will have a special gathering during the show. COSSU is a group of stamp collectors who focus on collecting stamps with cats on them. They will get together on Tuesday, May 31, to enjoy a presentation called “The Tiger in Philately,” by Marci Jarvis. Guest speakers will include Nancy Stahl, the illustrator for the Amur tiger cub stamp (pictured below), among other cat-related issues, and Sally Anderson-Bruce, photographer for the spay/neuter and shelter pets issues (pictured at right). Finally, Hope Tarr, director of the Prevent a Litter Coalition, will be there.

Vital details: when & where

She of Little Talent is very disappointed that she mistimed her trip and will miss this gathering (I don’t call her She of Little Talent for nothing). To avoid having this happen to you, I am giving you the details now so you can plan for next week:

You could meet Nancy Stahl, 
the illustrator behind this 
endangered species issue.
