A Window With a View

Cat from the Ukraine

Right after I started being active on Postcrossing again in September last year I received a message from a wonderful girl (Ptawka) who offered to send me a card of hers that I had favourited. This is the card. It got a bit smudged by postal ink but I think that adds to the charm. Ptawka says she has a grey cat who never goes out because there are many stray dogs in Kiev so he loves to watch the birds from the windowsill. The picture, the stamps she used and her lovely message have made this one of my favourite received cards.

  2. Yay for cats! How much more wonderful is the world because they are here. ^_^

  3. I have a cat who does much the same. :) It's a lovely card with almost a Chinese feel about it.
