I guess I might have mentioned a time or 500 that I am really mad about cats. Now that they have achieved an evolutionary status which has culminated with YouTube videos and catvertising, it means that when I mention (for whatever reason) I like them to new people I meet, their kneejerk reaction isn’t always now to say “UGH CATS.” This pleases me, because I don’t then have to go, “UGH JERK”, and scrub them from my potential friends list.
Yup. It’s likely we’ll never be close if you’re actively horrible – for no good reason – about moggies, but this happens less and less these days, thanks, in a large part, to adorbs videos of cats acting like absolute idiots, which is what cat owners always knew, and tried to tell you cat-haters anyway.
The other upshot of the recent spate of cat fancying is that now you can buy all this stuff for your gaff with cats on it. Yay! Like this bunch of cushions, mugs, prints and more I’ve dug up, and er, maybe ordered some of. Maybe.
PS: I like dogs too. They’re lovely. I see no reason to limit oneself to liking one animal. That would be silly and restrictive.

I'm ordering one of these for every room in the Shoebox of Negative Equity. Two, so. The Purrfectly Honest Cushion is £34.95 from Ohhdeer.com.
To really get the full effect, why not order it as a print, too? Purrfectly Honest is £19.95 from Ohhdeer.com.
The Cat's Whisker Wall Clock is £25 from Hunkydory Home.
Quite the sleekest desk tidy I've ever seen: this leather cat organiser also comes in red, and is £31 on Fab.
Part of a set of two mugs (the other one's an owl, of course), this feller's €35.50 at Debenhams.
Aww. How could you resist this!? It's a rubber doorstop designed to look like an inquisitive pussy's paw. SO. SWEET. £10 from Maiden.
The way to get cat all over your bed, minus the fur. This yours mine and noir's duvet set is $89.99 from Modcloth.
Fact: you can wear this as a mask as well as use it as a light fitting. Freaky. Made from paper, you'll be putting this guy together yourself. Designed by Mostlikely, it's £24.65 on Fab.
