I like the cat but why is it there?

Something happened in Seville, Spain 1930.

A cinderella.

A little about the little black cat bottom right....

The 1930 Spanish stamp commemorating Charles Lindbergh's
record-breaking flight from New York to Paris showed his cat
Patsy watching as his plane took off. Pasty often accompanied
Lindbergh on his flights, but did not go on the 1927 flight that
made him famous. (he did not want to put the cat in danger)
Lindbergh said "It's too dangerous a journey to risk the cat's life."
However a kitten named Jazz flew on the first dirigible flight from
the UK to America.

Lindbergh actually did take a cat of sorts with him. It was a doll --
a good luck charm, perhaps -- based on the popular cartoon
character, Felix the Cat.

Chicanery as in forgeries or just alot of mess ups at the printers? The cat really doesn't fit into the equation does it. Did Lindberg take a feline friend along for the trip? Don't see any value for inverted in 2008 scotts and I'm not a spain fan so I think I'll let this one pass.
Edit-- for feline phenomena solved

I haven't thought about Felix the Cat in years, either. I don't recall if this was his sidekick or just another character in the series, but I do remember Poindexter:

Damn It Now I have the theme song stuck in my head. "whenever he gets in a fix he reaches into his bag of tricks"
Did he have a sidekick or an arch nemesis?

I always recall Felix because of his high pitched voice.

Modern heroes have deep voices, not so Felix or Mighty Mouse.

Maybe that's why superheroes wear
their underpants over their tights
