Whether a quiet companion, napping partner or loving listener, cats give us the welcome gift of their calm presence. The artists featured below have managed to capture the cat human bond in all its touching beauty.
My parents just had their bathroom beautifully renovated. Since they’re cat lovers (of course), I thought adding a bit of cat bathroom decor would be a thoughtful gift to bless their new space.
After all, the bathroom is really the cat’s domain, right? Whether drinking from the faucet, unrolling toilet paper, or sleeping in the sink, cats love the bathroom. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t see that little paw under the door when I was trying to get some privacy…
As I began searching for the perfect gift, I realized my Kitty Curator readers might enjoy shopping with me! Check out my finds and let me know what you like in the comments. Scroll to the bottom to see what I chose for my parents’ gift.
I decided to begin a new blog series, Etsy Shops for Cat Lovers, where I’ll introduce some of my favorite artists. I had to start off with Niaski because I’m madly in love with every single item in this shop! I can’t decide if it’s the vibrant colorful designs or the clever homage to famous artists, but either way, I’m a fan.
Frida Kahlo was an influential Mexican painter, best known for her self-portraits. As a feminist icon and animal lover, it’s not surprising that many artists have chosen to depict Frida with cats, or as a cat herself. In one of her most famous works, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, she has a black cat on her shoulder.
Today’s post is dedicated to my sweet Siamese cat, Buster, who crossed the bridge about seven years ago. His story with me began as many cat stories do – a stray that wandered into my heart.
I keep seeing adorable cat pins and brooches in my Instagram feed. Apparently, it’s not just me. According to The Creators Project, enamel pins are taking the internet by storm:
“Wearable, tradable, and exceptionally cheap to produce, custom enamel pins are bringing individual flair to hats, jackets and lapels around the world, and giving artists the chance to make their work into an affordable and collectable commodity.”
I love it! I decided to seek out my favorite enamel cat pins and then expand to other mediums like silver, wood, porcelain and others. Best of all – I’ll have a pin giveaway on Thursday! Stay tuned.
I love cracking open a fresh journal at the beginning of the new year. Oh, the possibilities of that blank page! Whether you’re sketching kitties, scrapbooking memories or recording brilliant ideas, these cat-themed journals and sketchbooks will inspire you all year.
Some are handmade and designed, while others have an original illustration or painting printed on a hardbound or soft cover book. I’ve also included some beautiful notebook covers for those who like using Midori or Moleskine journals. Check out even more options on my Pinterest board.
Hopefully the variety of styles, colors and materials will get your creative juices flowing! Here’s to a great year ahead.
