There is a rumor going around that I love cats. OK – it’s not a rumor, I DO love cats. I have had cats for the entirety of my married life. There was only a short period of time when I had A cat, and there was a period of time when there were 17 cats (don’t ask.) Needless to say I have a strong affection for our feline friends. In that vein I’d like to share some great gift ideas for cat lovers – I am sure that it will come as no surprise that many of these gifts are books as you all know how much I love books too!

10 Gift Ideas for Cat Lovers
Cat Rolling Pin
If you want to make cat sugar cookies or a purrsonalized pie crust this embossed rolling pin is what you need. The etsy shop that sells it also offers many other styles. As this item does come from Poland you do have to order early for holiday gift giving. The hubby gave me mine for Christmas three years ago.

Personalized Cat Story – or is that Purrsonalized?
If you have a cat wouldn’t it be cool if he/she could star in his/her very own book? An adventure written with personal tidbits all throughout the tale. Well, this can indeed be done thanks to Petlandia. In fact if you have a dog or rabbit they could star in such an adventure too!
Harry the Farm cat was sent a book featuring himself in a story about seeking fame and fortune but realizing he had everything he wanted at home. The book was sent to me as a surprise at no charge and I was charmed by how many sweet references there were in the text to Harry’s and my life on the farm. It’s a colorfully illustrated book that you can customize for you or a friend.

The Secret Language of Cats by Susanne Schötz
You can read my review of The Secret Language of Cats as I posted it this morning. This is an in depth study of the phonetics of cats’ meows, mews, yowls and other sounds. It is not light reading but any human owned by a cat that wants to learn how to better communicate with their furry family member will appreciate reading about the meanings in all of those cat sounds.

Linen Kitchen Towels with Your Cat’s Likeness
I ordered these for myself in August from Etsy seller Linen is Love. It wasn’t my first purchase and it won’t be my last. She can put a custom photo on her linen tea towels. I love these towels; they dry things very well and wash beautifully. Yes, it’s linen they get wrinkly but they do the job I need them to do and they are of high quality. You will also find napkins, table runners, place mats and more.

Cat Gurus “Tarot” Cards
This is a set of delightfully illustrated cards featuring cat archetypes and famous cats offering advice for life. There are 50 cards with different cats plus a booklet with their biographies. It also explains how to use the cards. These were sent to me as a surprise at no charge.

Seafurrers by Philippa Sandall
In Seafurrers, able sea cat Bart sets the record straight at last. “Fear of water” aside, cats were indispensable at sea—both as pest controllers and as beloved mascots. Thirty–eight tales recount the adventures of Trim (who circumnavigated Australia), Tom (the sole feline survivor of the sinking of the USS Maine), celebrity cat Simon (a veteran of the Yangtze Incident), and other furry heroes. And much more! I was sent a copy at no charge.

2019 Custom Day/Student Planner from Belle Rousseur Designs
I have ordered my planners from Belle Rousseur for the last 4 years now and have been absolutely thrilled with them. They are well made and different layouts are offered to suit whatever needs you might have. In addition to the basic planner set up there are add ons available for payables/receivables, etc. This was the first year that this adorable cat cover was offered so of course I was all over it. I highly recommend them for your planner needs. The service is fast and I obviously like the product or I would keep buying them.

Engineering for Cats by Mac Delaney
In this inventive, surprisingly funny, and highly entertaining and practical book, Mac Delaney addresses the quirks of cat behavior through the mindset of an aerospace engineer (because that’s what he is!)—and gives us 10 projects that solve the most common sources of friction affecting cats and their doting owners. I was sent a copy as a surprise at no charge.

Cat Tee Shirts and More from Mountain Artwear
I love, love, love the Dean Russo Collection from Mountain Artwear. I made that video several years ago and my collection has only grown. When I made the above I had been sent a horse tee shirt as part of a blog post. I’ve also got a couple of wolf tees and for my birthday this year the hubby gave me a sloth tee shirt – although the sloth is not a Dean Russo design. The Mountain makes high quality tee shirts for a good price. They always have a sale of some kind going on so it pays to sign up for their newsletter. This is full on love for a product as I am not an affiliate.

Cat Oven Mitts
OK – the picture shows sloths. I also love sloths and when I needed new oven mitts I went for the sloths. BUT the company also makes cat oven mitts and I didn’t have permission to post the photo so I didn’t want to steal it. I can tell you that they make AWESOME oven mitts. They are thick and very well made. I’ve had my sloths for months and they are going strong. If you read the blog you know how much I bake. These mitts really keep the heat at bay when I’m moving things in, out and around the oven.
