The Cat's Meow - Wednesday Wanderings and the Shops Found Along the Way

I own two cats, or should I say two cats own me...  Sam and Oliver. Sam is long and skinny; Oliver is short and (very) fat.  Sam meows when he knows you're up, and keeps meowing until he gets fed; Oliver rarely says a word (except, of course, for his powerful purr motor).  Totally different, yet the best of buddies.
Can you tell which is which?

So, on my wanderings today, I'm looking for cats! Funny cats, weird cats, smarty pants cats, clever cat stuff. Let's see what I found!

What a priceless expression! Kitty just does not look happy to be wearing this hat!! "But it's so cute, Kitty, and looks so lovely on you." "Hiss, snarl, bite" says Kitty, but leaves it on because she knows, deep down in her kitty heart, that she is very beautiful indeed.

Love the hat……love the cat......go to Pampered Whiskers to see more (and, yeah, there are some for doggies too).  Plus, part of the proceeds from each sale goes to animal rescue - how great is that!

Isn't this just so typical of cats! Wouldn't you like to do the same?? At my house we say Sam and Oliver have to rest after a full day of sleeping! I love to cross-stitch and try to do a little every day 'cause it's so relaxing. And then I can nap….. Visit Downeast Stitchin' from 1librarylady to see some more cat-isms in cross-stitch! 

Here mousie, mousie……come visit your bestest friend!! Anywhere you hang it, this cat mask will brighten your day and make you smile. It can even be hung outside on your patio or by the front door -- visitors will come in laughing! And I do love the whiskers. Check out Dottie's shop for more Wild Wild Things!

I had a much loved cat once named Domino -- the bestest cat ever EXCEPT when he unrolled the toilet tissue and there was MILES of it all over the bathroom -- and with little kitty claw holes included. This apparently was his favorite and most fun thing to do when no one was at home...  Maybe if he'd had this cat toy, he would have left the real stuff alone (after all, it does have catnip in it!!) Run over to Oh Boy! Cat Toy and see more cute toys for your much loved kitty.

This vintage set is so comical with their chubby cat cheeks! And check out their cute whiskers! There's a cookie jar, teapot, sugar and creamer, and even a grease jar. You gotta admit, it would look so cool on your kitchen counter! See some more cookie jars at  Jazze Junque.
What kid wouldn't love wearing this wild kitty hat!! I know the little kid in my life would. Hats Out Loud has the most colorful and funky hats I've seen -- when I stumbled on this shop, I knew I had to stop in! She has hats for all ages, but I personally love all the animal hats for kids the best. They are just so cute and unique!

Well, I guess that's my shopping experience for the day -- I could go on and on; there's so much cool cat stuff on Etsy! But I'll stop here -- hope ya'll enjoyed my all my nifty kitty finds!

Be sure to stop back next Wednesday to see where my wanderings take me...

Thank you for posting all of the incredibly cute pictures! The unrolled toilet paper toy and the sunflower hat are fantastic (the hat, especially-how dapper!). Anyway, thanks for posting these, and I'm really looking forward to reading more of your posts!
