1. Custom Pet Regal Portrait

Well, this is probably the most ridiculous gift for your cat-obsessed friend.

And we are SO here for it!! We’ll take two, please.

Do they also do calendars? These absolutely hilarious and yet oddly exquisite works of art, modeled after your darling little minx, are completely perfect for your cat loving friend. Seriously, it’ll be hanging in a place of honor in no time.

When you need a laugh-till-you-cry kind of gift, look no further. I mean, I can’t look away and it’s not even my cat.

2. Black Cat Fire Extinguisher

If you’re looking for a fire extinguisher to hide away in a cupboard, behind random pots and junk, never to appear unless in an emergency (in which case you’ll be desperately trying to remember where you stashed it, give up, and run outside, yelling FIRE), this is not that fire extinguisher!

No way, ma’am. This fire extinguisher is so flat-out lovely and sleek and delightful (much like your cat), that it’s meant to be SEEN. We see you, fire extinguisher. Oh, we see you.

And we heart you.

So much.

PS Did you know house fires occur every 24 seconds in the United States? Um yeah. Be prepared. In style.

3. Pet Portrait Custom Necklace

Such a lovely way to commemorate the passing of a loved kitty over the Rainbow Bridge, but also just a fun little trinket to give for no particular reason, this charming gold pendant of your very own fuzz-bucket is perfect!

It’s one-of-a-kind (no Claire’s shopping needed, or dull, unimagined, generic etching here). Finished off with their name in a pretty font, this necklace is just the best, whether paired with a little black dress, or the most casual of outfits.

Hint: It’s also a lovely gift when you have to mail one. Have you seen the price of shipping these days? I mean, sure, they’d love a hand-carved bust of Whiskers too, but that would cost you an arm and a leg just to ship. This is a win-win for everyone!

4. Personalized Paw Print Coasters

Made of bamboo and personalized with your cat mama or daddio’s moniker, these coasters are the cat’s pajamas! (You know we’d throw that expression in eventually, now you can quit waiting with baited breath. Get it? Bait? Like catnip? No? Sigh.)

Everyone needs a set of coasters. Might as well make them as sweet and adorable as your cat is. Also doubles as a good place for serving Sir Marmaduke’s nightly crystal dish of diced livers on.


5. Unique Gifts for Cat Lovers: Personalized Wall Mounted Cat Bed

Indoor kitties get a little bored. Bored kitties equal destruction and mayhem, not to mention chaos and possible world domination. They need some stimulation and a bit of a American Ninja Warrior: Cat Edition on the wall!

Enter this utterly fabulous wall-mounted cat bed and obstacle course. Whether you multiple kitten warriors or just one epically rambunctious meow-er, this is just the ticket for sweet naps and much-needed exercise. Probably in the reverse order.

You know who owns avocado socks? PORTLAND PEOPLE CIRCA 2017, THAT’S WHO.

Your style is way beyond that. You know what’s cool these days.

So you want socks with the most cunning, the most delightful, the most darling, the most slightly evil, sidekick ever: your cat! You might want to buy a couple of pairs, because after experiencing these on your feet, your toes will most definitely shun any other sock of the argyle, striped, checkered, or polka-dotted variety.

PS The only way to wear these is with shorts and sandals. Don’t argue.

7. Fur Parents Shirts

Leave no doubt with one of these Cat Mom shirts. It explains away the stray fur and hair and that liver pate stain, all while looking adorable and stylish! It’s going to pair perfectly with jeans or skirts, and is strong enough to withstand a few kitty claws during bath time.

Also available as Cat Dad! Matching set for newlyweds? We think yes.

8. Best. Fur Mom. Ever. Personalized Bird Feeder

Give those whisker-faces something to look at out the back window! Like this: a totally personalized and amazing bird feeder. It’s made of cedar and engraved however you specify.

It’s roomy enough to hold food for a crowd and easy to hang from a tree, the porch, or mounted on a holder. Not only do the birdies get some yummy food, but the cats get something to amuse them!

It’s like dinner and a show…

Don’t even think about burning this charming cat shaped candle! But if you must, it’s made of beeswax and will burn evenly and slowly. This sweet little candle will look so cute on a bookshelf, in a bathroom, or dead-center on the coffee table.
