I probably spend more money on Etsy than I do at any other retail store or website. I love the handmade, unique, personalized pieces and knowing that I’m supporting independent sellers and businesses. And if there are cats involved, I’m totally on board. I think I overcompensate on my “cat gear” because I don’t own any cats. I used to have a couple of cats, but unfortunately, they both perished when my apartment burned down a few years ago. My boyfriend (who I was not dating at the time of the fire) is also claiming to be very allergic, so unfortunately, I don’t even think I’ll be able to have an outside cat. Sad face. Hopefully one day, scientists will be able to build the perfect hypoallergenic cat, and I will find him at a local shelter and my life will be complete. But until then, there’s always Etsy.
Here are some of my favorites, with the names of the sellers linked to the objects:
I love these cute earring posts by Mouseblossom, They’re nickel-free and each one is hand-drawn, so each piece will be slightly different. They’re also pretty inexpensive, around $7.
This one is definitely my favorite… temporary cat tattoos from harrietgray! You can purchase single ones, or in packs of three and seven. Singles are around $4, and it’s around $8 for three and $16 for all seven designs.
Feral cat tote by spagecko, $10.00.
