Postage Stamp of the Week: Giant Space Cat

Here we have our first international Postage Stamp of the Week, issued by the Comoro Islands in 1992. Meet Felix, a cat the French shot into space in 1963. I love the look on his face, as if he's happily reminiscing about his space adventure, despite the electrodes still implanted in his brain. And the little rocket in the foreground makes it seem like Felix's head is two hundred feet tall.
