Kitty ornaments are here! 🐱

A few months ago, I made ceramic pet ornaments for my friends who’d recently lost their pets.

I loved them so much that I decided to make a handful to share with you!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may have seen the makings of these ceramic cat ornaments.

It’s taken me longer than expected to finish these… Making ceramic anything is a long process!

But good news, the wait is finally over.

They’re here and looking for a new furever home 😀

They come in 3 colors: Tuxedo (SOLD OUT!), Black, and Dark Grey Tabby. (* note Grey Tabby is very dark and appears almost black at a first glance.)

You can select the color upon checkout.

They’re hand crafted and painted/glazed individually by me.

Each one is slightly different and makes it a one-of-a-kind artwork.

They’re about 1.5″ round (35 mm) and attached to a waxed cord for easy hanging. The cord is about 4″ long (95mm).

You can hang them on your wall, from the rearview mirror in your car, your houseplants, or on your Christmas tree during the holiday season.

You can also switch the cord to a longer string/chain and wear it as a necklace! It’s lightweight but pretty sturdy.

These cuties will make a perfect gift for someone who’s lost their cats or for any cat lovers who just want to be surrounded by anything that has cats on them 🐱

I only made a handful of each and am not sure if I’ll make more in the future.

I may, but it all depends on the time/energy I have… I’m not promising anything… 🙊

If you want them, go get them NOW!

Enjoy 😘

How are you going to celebrate your (cat-loving) dad this year?

I’ve always loved cats since I was little.

Since my parents wouldn’t let me have cats for a long time, I fantasized about having one pretty much 24/7.

My husband, Dave, always loved animals and was more of a dog person when we met. He was even allergic to cats growing up. But magically, he grew out of his cat allergy as he got older – it’s like he was destined to meet me, a hopeless cat-lover!

I had my two cats, Lulu and Sheppie, from my previous relationship, when we met.

They were pretty much my babies. It was important to me that whoever I’d bring in to our life would understand how important they were to me and at least tolerate them, if not love them.

To my delight, my kitties won him over pretty quickly with their cuteness, loving personality (in their cat-like ways), and their comical antics.

Dave is so sweet and loving with any and all cats he meets. I sometimes wonder if he’s become a bigger cat person than I am now!

We’ve been through some scary and tough situations with our cats, too – especially, losing Lulu last year was extremely heartbreaking. He’s been my rock through thick and thin, and I’m really grateful to have him in my life.

Our sweet girl.

On Father’s Day, I like to thank him for being an awesome dad to my cats.

I’ve been making a cat Father’s Day card just for him in previous years because let’s face it, my cats are not very crafty 😀

And, I thought there might be other people who want to celebrate their cat dad, too!

So I decided to share this special Father’s Day card with you.

Thanks friend! Hope you enjoy it 🙂
