What do cats do
? They refine the art of ambivalence. Then they act really foolish and fall off of things or chase their tails, making us wonder if there's a conclusive thought in their walnut-brains at all. It's this contrast — the contempt and the clumsiness — that make cats so easy to obsess over. Mine, shown above, goes by the name Casper, and he's pretty useless with the exception of being more fun to watch than digital cable. If you're like me, a cat lover, take a gander at these little cat-inspired pieces. Maybe you'll get inspired to sing your cat-love from the rooftops, or at least pour yourself a cup of tea.

Sometimes you just can't keep these kinds of things to yourself. I know, there are just as many cat haters out there, but the truth is we're all jealous of how they just get to sit around and be adorable all day. Me, I'm just glad I've got the dope to come home to...and feed...and clean out his litter box...and say "WHAT?!" to when he won't stop meowing. Le sigh, the pleasures of having a feline companion.

Are you a cat lover? Would you rock any of these items?
