Holiday gift giving guide

In case you are struggling to find some cat-themed gifts for the crazy-cat person in your life, here are a few ideas.

Christmas Cats, an album of familiar Christmas tunes sung by meowing cats lyrics. Very creative. It's available to enjoy on Spotify or you can buy it for your crazy-cat person on

Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure. Comes with six cats. One of the product features listed on the listing: "Great conversational piece" hmmm. Sure thing!

Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat. From the book description: "Crafting with Cat Hair shows readers how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts. From kitty tote bags and finger puppets to fluffy cat toys, picture frames, and more, these projects are cat-friendly, eco-friendly, and require no special equipment or training. You can make most of these projects in under an hour—with a little help, of course, from your feline friends!"

Purfect Feline Gray Kitty Cat Ceiling Fan Light Pull. How many feline enthusiasts do you know who have a ceiling fan that's just screaming for a cat-themed light pull? I'm looking at my ceiling fan right now and thinking, it's missing something - it needs a little more cat!

Hot Sox Originals Classic Cats Crew Socks, Hemp Heather, Medium. Cat socks are always a good option. There are many styles to choose from. Everyone can always use another pair of socks.

Ceramic Cat Kitten Measuring Cups / Bowls. At $50, these are a little pricey, but you know, for the cat-loving person who loves spending time in the kitchen, these might just be the purrfect thing. Of course, you'll also need to get the Set of 4 measuring spoons.

The Sitting Pretty Dip Bowl and Spreader Set looks pretty cool too.

Kitty salt and pepper shakers, how cool! Sitting Pretty Salt and Pepper Set. Sadly these are currently out of stock, maybe they will be back in time for next year.

Ishpingo wood sculpture, 'Playtime Kitty'. For the person who has everything, I bet they might enjoy a hand carved kitty sculpture from Peru. I like these.

Safety Cat Women's Self Defense Keychain - Purple. This keychain comes in many different colors. I'm not a woman, but I like the idea of this. A simple device that could truly hurt someone enough to be able to get away. The product description states, "When holding the Safety Cat, your two fingers will be placed in the eyes of the cat and the face of the cat will rest securely in the palm of your hand. The smooth, sleek design of the Safety Cat will feel very comfortable in your hand and you will be able to grasp it firmly. Remember, the Safety Cat is used for self defense purposes only, but if you're fighting for your life the unique design of the Safety Cat is made for striking at the eyes of your attacker or attacking any fleshy part of the body."

And my favorite gift I've saved for last - the Feral Cat Hat by Catnip Hill. These handmade fleece hats were featured on Modern Cat last year. Part of the profits from these hats funds TNR work in Michigan. They come in five sizes and random colors!

Good luck on your holiday gift giving! I hope Santa is kind to you this year.


  1. What to choose....what to choose!
    OK... 'poke your attacker in the eye kitty'....just to show that you don't mess with a cat lady.

  2. "Crafting with Cat Hair." MOL!!

    Love that cat hat!

  3. OMG - I so ordered the ceiling fan pull - picked different cat options - black kitty. My mom has been giving me grief for the entire 11 years that I have lived in my condo for not having a pull on the ceiling fan she can reach. I have no problem! Wait until she goes to pull the chain next time!

  4. Oh my goodness. I'm so glad I'm not the only crazy cat person around! I love the cat measuring cups and the wood sculpture and the...ok everything except crafting with cat hair...I'm not THAT crazy.
