Issue Date: 13/02/2001
Issue Name: Brigitte Bardot Foundation - Cats
Producer: Buckingham Covers
A purr-fect gift for cat lovers! This adorable cover features the Cat half of Royal Mail's Cats And Dogs issue from 13th February 2001 and is postmarked at Cats Ash - the cats in the picture belong to Tony and Cath. Cocoa (the tabby) was rescued from being locked in a shed without food for a long time. He is now a very happy cat and rather chuffed to have appeared on a Buckingham Cover (or so he should be!). His story appears in gold on the left of the cover.
We were honoured to work with Brigitte Bardot to raise money for her animal rescue work. It is also available signed by Christopher Timothy, Virginnia McKenna, Julie Newmar or Brigitte Bardot.
The Brigitte Bardot Foundation
The Brigitte Bardot Foundation works to protect both wild and domestic animals throughout the whole world. The 48,000 members give the Foundation the strength to lobby parliaments to change the laws with regard to animals. We fight against animal experimentation, the fur trade, transport of live animals and we speak out against animals as a spectacle in zoos, circuses and bullrings. The foundation aims to inform in order to get the general public involved ready to act. The foundation has an animal shelter 'La Mare Auzou' in Normandy for rescued animals (cats, dogs, donkeys, ponies and horses) and publishes a newspaper 'L'Info-Journal' which tells about all the things the Foundation is doing, but also offers lots of Brigitte Bardot souvenirs for sale.
