Friday Cat Blogging... Etsy Cat Lovers' Faves

As many of you know, I am a cat person. And I won't go on about Chibi or Ebi today.

There are so many great things on Etsy. Great things in general, yes, but it is a veritable treasure trove for cat lovers like me. I'll see how long I'm able to hold off on these items. You can click on any of the items to see them a little better.

The Clever Kitty T-shirt, that you'll find in Cathy's shop, along with her wonderful kitty artwork and bunch of other kitty tees.

These adorable maneki neko earrings, by finestimaginary. Now which colour is my favourite?

I know my cats would love this catnip mat , and there are so many to choose from in a shop called stuff .

GenObata makes these amazing sets of photo cards starring Lilly the cat in various vacation spots. They make me smile every time I look at them.

Felicia has a cat lovers' section in her Maid of Clay shop and if you click on her sold items you'll find a whole slew of kitties who have gone to deserving homes. The faces on these cats (and all her animal creations) crack me up; you'll find yourself clicking on certain ones and letting out an audible, "Awwwwwww!"

... And here's one live cat for this edition of Friday Cat Blogging. The taiko, or Japanese drums, we play in our group, Arashi Daiko, do sustain some damage from living in a climate that cycles between dry and damp (Japan is consistently humid year-long). One of our group's members, Manon, has been avidly learning about taiko making for the past couple of years, and has been graciously repairing our drums. Last week-end she took home an okedo that had cracked, likely from the dry heat in the storage room, and her cat Fripou was giving her a hand. He's especially handy with his nifty opposable thumbs.

the earrings are the best I think!!
And I love your porfolio, what a shame they didn't do as good a job as you had hoped. Coincidentaly I bought today two small display books to do the same job for me, your album looks so much more professional
