Fun with Cats and Dogs

I don’t think it’s any big secret that I love my animals. If you doubt this you can view the 800+ designs about dogs on Flickr. Anyhow, while cruising through my favorite handmade sites an idea for a blog came upon me… Lovely handmade gifts for the cat and dog lover. Fun and funky items that just make me love them all the more.

  • I love this adorable stuffed pug made from re-purposed sweaters. A truly unique items that still screams PUG! Mr. Adorable is available from Sweet Poppy Cat.

  • How about these cute kitten mugs. What better way to warm up on a cold day, then with a cup of your favorite hot drink. These mugs are available from Abby Berkson.

  • I love Szilvia Vihriälä’s store description… she “creates temporarily homeless pups”. They are absolutely wonderful and of course kissable puppies!

  • This cat reminds me a two kitten figurines that my grandmother used to have, a modernized updated version, of course. She may look like a princess, but she’s an avid rugby fan. Tackle this cute baby from Red and Main

  • Another fun and funky find… Cat girl from Pretty Plush. She’s soooo squeezable, makes me wish I was a little girl again. This gorgeous plushy is made of fleece and cotton.

  • Lola the deaf Boston Terrier is from Boston, Massachusetts. She likes to head-butt houseguests in the rump as her way of saying hi, and her favorite saying is, “I can’t hear you!”. Lola is a cute clutch/coin purse available from Cuore.

  • How about a lovely letterpress card with Maneki Neko, or the Lucky Cat, wishing you good luck and prosperous wealth. Maneki Neko is available from Bon Vivant Press.

  • Celebrate with bulldogs all year long, each month features a different bulldog And look… no snoring, snorting or drolling. The 2012 Bulldog calendar is available from African Gray.

  • Perfect for the Christmas Tree… this beautiful porcelain ornament from The Magic Sleigh. This bearded collie is one of many dog breeds available.

  • Paula is an adorable and lively kitty and a one-of-a-kind brooch. This darling kitty-cat is available from Chifonie.
