Cats might have their owners believing that every day is a national holiday in their honor, but as it turns out, October 29th is officially National Cat Day. Show that you are proud to be a crazy cat lady (or man) with one of these kitty-themed items from a Seattle-area Etsy shop.
Keep a reminder of your furry friend around your neck with this gold kitten necklace from Vancouver-based Silver Lotus Designs, or wrapped around your ear with this piece from Mintloft (also Vancouver). If you prefer a piece that looks more like your pal, Bainbridge Island’s Jeff Haynie Art offers a wide variety of pendants featuring felines of every color. For some, these vintage brooches from two Seattle sellers might be like catnip: Junquegrl’s kitties with entwined tails or this kitten and goldfish piece from Ms. Maude. For the gentleman, how about a pair of cat cufflinks from Mancornas (also Seattle)?
Wear a cat in your hair with this black cat clip from Chew Chew’s Closet (Seattle) or on your nails with these kitty decals from Bellevue-based Nailthins. Run errands or go grocery shopping with Stasia Burrington’s reusable tote bag (Seattle). Leave this trinket dish from Song and Branch (also Seattle) by your sink or bedside and never lose your small pieces of jewelry again!
This “Groovy Kitty” plushie from Seattle-based The Tiny Garden can be used as wall art or a decorative pillow, and capture our precious sunshine with this beautiful white stained glass cat from Yafit’s First Glass (Redmond). Moyo Workshop’s pink amigurumi crochet cat (Seattle) is just looking for someone to cuddle with- perhaps under this colorful quilt from Redmond’s A Stitch to Remember. Seattle’s Stitch Dutchess offers a hoop art cross-stitch pattern inspired by The Big Bang Theory that would be great for DIYers.
Just because it’s National Cat Day doesn’t mean you have to take it this far, but you can if you want to: let everyone know that you’ve sworn off all non-feline friends for the day with this funny t-shirt from Kirkland-based Raven Chic Studio.
