Your cat knows she's fancy — and she reminds you of it all the time. You humor her by offering nothing but the best cat treats, but if you're storing them in a plain old plastic container, you're not living up to kitty's expectations.
Instead of that ugly Tupperware, keep your cat's treats in this beautiful jar from artist Arthur Court. This storage container combines a pebbled glass jar and a stylish aluminum lid, with a signature Arthur Court sculpture of a cat reaching for a fish. It is guaranteed to raise the level of snack-time sophistication for your cat. (And also guaranteed to look better on your kitchen counter than that plastic monstrosity.) There is also a companion dog treat canister available for the sophisticated pooch. Both make ideal wedding or housewarming gifts for your pet-loving friends.
These pieces are not dishwasher-safe. Hand wash, and dry the aluminum top immediately to prevent staining.
Our friends at BrightNest.com share four clever DIY projects that are perfect for pet lovers.
Place it next to your human treat jar (a.k.a. cookie jar) or let it hang out solo on your counter — it’s pretty, so you don’t have to stash it away in the closet!
If a photo of some “other” dog or cat just won’t cut it, that’s cool. We like the Real Deal Holyfield too — that’s why we love these pet-photo pillows from Yellow Brick Home. There’s minimal sewing involved, and everyone who sits on your couch will see just how much you love your pet.
Don’t you just hate it when your tortoise gets lost in the yard? Fortunately, Etsy crochet pro Katie Bradley has a solution.
Her adorable tortoise yard finder fits snugly around your shelled buddy’s midsection, so it’s easy to find him as he enjoys a nice stroll in the grass. It’s much more chic than ordinary blue tape or other common tortoise markers, and it’s slightly stretchy to accommodate growing turtles.
(Tortoise yard finders are for outdoor fun only, and should not be used near basking lamps or on aquatic turtles.)
Tired of the standard boxy, carpet-covered cat tree? Does your feline demand the utmost in contemporary design? Not to worry — Cincinnati-based Cattino has you covered.
Design guru Nathan Workman, in partnership with his furry consultant “Miss Trudy,” painstakingly tested the Cattino concept over several incarnations. Finally they arrived at today’s striking product, which features a cool birch wood kitty design, stylish fabric patterns for its two “hammocks,” and a sturdy scratching pad to boot.
Cattino is easy to assemble in the home, and, through Workman’s Etsy site, you can order more scratching pads plus a variety of hammock patterns, just in case your cat’s distinguished taste changes. Not that a cat's ever been known to be finnicky.
Problem solved: Snoods for dogs. This adorable headgear keeps your pup's long ears from getting dirty or messed up during his daily adventures. They were all the rage at the Westminster Dog Show, where canine competitors wore them in the benching area to keep their ears pretty for the show ring.
These cute creations from the daydogdesigns Etsy store are 100 percent cotton and come in three sizes.
As cat owners, we put up with certain things. We put the litter box in a fairly out-of-the-way corner (but not so out-of-the-way that the cat won't go there), we have strings and toys hanging from most doorknobs, and we baldly accept the fact that we'll never use our own toilet without an audience again. But, you know, it's nice when the things you have to put up with also give a little something back, right?
Enter the DJ Cat Scratching Pad. It's a scratching pad for your cat (obviously) with the added bonus of being absolutely hilarious. It's funny enough that you won't have any problem keeping it wherever your kitty likes to scratch; even when your cat isn't using it, it's certainly a conversation starter!
Couldn’t get Fluffy to pose in a holiday sweater this year?
Not to worry. With a little coaxing, you might be able to persuade her that wearing one of these little crocheted hats from Etsy store SarabiRose is the perfect way to ring in the New Year. Plus, it’s a great way for Fluffy to show off her vast knowledge of human pop culture references.
Is your kitty a Nintendo fan? Get her the Mario, Luigi or Princess Peach hat. Is she a feline literature aficionado? The Cat in the Hat or Puss in Boots hat will look dashing. Is she a Shriners member? No? The fez will still look adorable on her.
Feeling a little overwhelmed by well-meant holiday cheer? It might be time to bust out the ugly Christmas sweaters — for you and Fido. This year, deck the halls with just a little bit of irony with one of these fun and festive (and not-so-serious) dog sweaters. Because nothing lifts your spirits like man's best friend in a light-up sweater (although you may have to offer some extra treats to get your pooch on board with this).

If you're dreaming of living in a Frank Lloyd Wright-style home but don't want to deal with, you know, having to actually move, we may have the perfect solution for you. This vintage cat house, designed by the office of Frank Lloyd Wright, is currently for sale at 1stDibs.com ... for $14,500, as our friends at Moderncat recently discovered.
The cat house, called "Felis Catus," was designed for the daughter of a man for whom Wright's office was designing a residence. The cat house was apparently described by Wright over the phone to the supervisor of the project, who was the one who actually completed the drawing (which is included in the sale of the cat house).
So, sure, it's a little pricier than your average kitty condo, but it's a piece of architectural history. Do you think it's worth it?
