Ask anyone around here to name three things about me and they’ll probably say “she loves cats” as one. It’s true! My friends always send me the latest and greatest cat links from BuzzFeed; I’m always checking in on Lolcats for a morning laugh; and I definitely bought kitty flats to complete my fall/winter wardrobe. (I have this ear warmer, too.) I just love ‘em. I have two of my own at home, D’Artagnan and Mahala. They were both adopted and are now spoiled to death, of course. This week, I decided to ditch colors and patterns and make something that’s shamelessly cute for your Monday enjoyment.
Cat in Glasses / Snoozing on a Radiator / Cat and Monkey / Sleeping Pals / Waving Kitten / Valentine / Asleep on Books / Russian Blue Kitten
See that cutie in the bottom-left picture posing like a ham? That’s my three year old, Mahala. I just had to include her in there.
Come back every Monday for an inspirational mood board. Miss a day? See all the posts here.
This adorable fish litter box, known as Litterfish, is the brainchild of cinematographer Robert Brinkmann (The Rules of Attraction, Encino Man, The Cable Guy) and comic artist Dan Panosian (Kung Fu Panda).
Brinkmann, a cat owner for years, came up with the idea of making a litter box fun to look at: “The humor of having a cat walk into a fish appealed to me.” It clearly appealed to the editors of Design Happens as well.
The teepee? So hot right now. Even The New York Times thinks so! There are teepee motels and play teepees for kids, so why shouldn’t your feline friend join in the fun?
The Loyal Luxe Native American Teepee for cats is meant to be humorous, but kitties actually seem to go crazy for it (could it be the cardboard box factor?), and it’s definitely cuter than many other cat beds I’ve seen on the market. I’m half-wondering if I could get my long-haired miniature dachshund into it. If your style is more rustic, Loyal Luxe also offers a Canadian Cabin. Me? I’d get one of each, and designate the teepee as the “summer home” and the cabin as the “winter home.” Happy Caturday!
