Hang on Kitty, Hang on!

Since I have (mostly) always had cats, I tend to collect all cat stamps that exist. So when I saw the Catnap Christmas Cling Rubber Stamp Set, I knew I had to add it to my rather large humongous collection.

Here's a tag with one of the cute kitty stamps included in the set, which also includes that great sentiment.
