And Whiskers On Kittens

It’s time for me to pick up where I left off ‘My Favourite Things’  series. So far I’ve done Raindrops On Roses…oh yes, one whole phrase completed with two posts. It’s going to be awhile…anyway naturally today’s gifts are all about felines. Buy a present for your own pet (but don’t hold your breath for a thank you) or gift one to a cat lover in your life. Not a cat fan? Read on…there’s still tie-ins for other animal lovers on your list.

Custom Pet JewelryPersonalized Pet Jewelry – $204 – $229 @ Rock My World
This is one way to show you’re a tried & true friend of felines. If you can tackle kitty long enough to get them to give you a mold of their paw or nose, it can be made into a custom sterling silver pendant that’s just as unique and quirky as your pet. It’s the type of statement piece that’ll have people going…what is that? Oh and shipping is a totally reasonable $7.95. And if you don’t have a cat, there’s also a ton of puppy-friendly options as well.

Acacia Cat TreeAcacia Cat Tree – $275+ @ Square Cat Habitat
The conceit of this store is pretty cool – modern furniture that won’t stand out like a knitted tea cozy in your slick pad, but is also super appealing to kitty friends too. This three-tier cat tree can be configured in different finishes, all of which include inserts where you can hide or rub catnip to make the tree extra fun to play or chill on. Plus, the inserts work as scratching posts as well, to keep your actual modern furniture free from claws.

How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting TO Kill YouHow to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You by The Oatmeal – $8.49 @
This is a gift I’ve actually both received and gifted to someone – so it had to be on this list. Matthew Inman’s hilarious site The Oatmeal often pinions cats as both dour masterminds and irrational killers. This book gathers all of his kitty tales in one place (including the full ‘The Bobcats’ series) plus gathers up a bunch of new and hilarious insights into the minds of our favourite furballs. A must-have that will have any cat owner cackling on the spot.

Mungo and Maud Stitch Cat Bowls

Stitch Bird & Fish Cat Bowls – $59 each @ Mungo & Maud
This UK-based outfit has expanded their reach overseas so posh pets (dogs and cats) seeking the creme de la creme of gear can stock up. There are a million and one nice things to say about their lines, but I’ll simply highlight these sweet pastel ceramic dishes. For those not in the know, plastic dishes are harmful to your furry friend – they can cause cat acne, and often aren’t BPA free. Go ceramic (or metal) or go home.

Cat Scratch DJCat Scratch DJ – $34.99 @ ThinkGeek
All I can think of when I look at this is the hilarious Portlandia sketch featuring a song with lyrics that basically go ‘Cat scratch fever & a whisker patrol…’ Anyway. If you like the visual pun of seeing a cat doing something totally ridiculous, you must buy this absolutely hilarious cardboard DJ table that gives new meaning to the idea of ‘scratching’.

Alrighty. Looking for another bonus entry into this month’s Rodial draw? Just tell me which of these five feline picks you’d most like to buy or own in the comments below!
