I love cats! When I was gathering this stuff up, I was actually surprised that I don't have more cat stuff. My family isn't in to cats, but Travis loves them! He picked Scampi up at an animal rescue just a few weeks after he moved out of his parents house. I have learned to love them too.
I love that yellow book, it is called "The All Color World of Cats." I keep it propped up like a piece of art. Then there is the siamese paint by number, a cute cloth cat that my mother in law gave me, and two planters! Travis bought the grey planter for his first apartment, he thinks it looks like Scampi (who is draped over my shoulder like a mink stole right now. It is annoying and cute at the same time) The white cat planter was my grandmother's when she was a teenager. I got it when I got her bed.
My great grandfather gave my brother and I these cats when we went up to his farm house when we were little. The laying down one is mine, but my brother let me have his too. I think they are so sweet. That was the only time I met my great grandfather, but I always think of him when I see these kittens. I keep them on my dresser (which belonged to my grandmother!)
This kitty is from the Goodwill Outlet. It was one of my first vintage finds there! After I brought her home, my cats knocked her off the shelf and her head popped off and her ears got broken. I glued her back together. I still love her. The cats also broke the cutest little glass kitten that hangs on the side of a flower pot. Sometimes they drive me crazy!
I need to ask my parents where this tiny black cat came from. I have had it as long as I can remember, and I'm sure there is a story behind it. It is very small, less than an inch tall!
I LOVE this vintage placemat. I found it in it's package at a thrift store. We keep the cats bowls on it. It is one of my favorite things I've ever found! I love the sweet kitten faces and the neon pink.And of course I can't talk about my cat collection without mentioning our kitties!
