11 Cat-Themed Home Decorations That Aren't Tacky
As cute as some of the cat-themed home decorations on the internet are, much of the viral decor revolves around Man's Best Friend. I love dogs, but personally, if I'm going to keep an animal in my apartment, it had better be a cat. Cats take care of themselves, but dogs are needy little monsters, and I am far too busy spending all my time marathoning Weeds to pay attention to anyone who isn't me. Cats barely need you, and if they could operate can openers, they wouldn't need you at all. So, as a self-proclaimed cat person, I present to you a slew of adorable cat-themed things you can buy for your adult space that aren’t tacky (not that I really think any individual cat decor is tacky, but I have been in a few frightening cat people apartments, and, folks, there is such a thing as too many kitten pillows).
Still, there are plenty of tasteful cat accoutrements out there that will complement any home, even if your only pet is the bashful mouse that lives under your radiator and comes out whenever your landlord forgets to turn on the heat. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. Cat Beanbag
I understand that this is on PBTeen's site, not Pottery Barn proper's, which means, in theory, that this spectacular beanbag chair is not intended for full grown adults. But if I had $139 laying around, you better believe I'd get this plump little baby and throw out my couch. I LOVE YOU, CHAIR WHISKERS!!!
2. Party Cat Wine Glasses
The best kind of cat is the one that judges you silently when you drink too much, and who among us wouldn't that cat painted to the very container that caused you to pour their dry food in your cereal bowl? These cats come wearing glasses, hats, tiaras, and other fun accessories, and you can put wine inside them! A present for all, but mostly for me.
3. 'The Cats Have Been Fed' Wall Hanging
4. Cat Key Holder
This cute cat silhouette key holder will keep you from losing your keys in your own room, thus making it much easier for you to escape your home when the kitty litter feels too overpowering. It can also double as a leash holder, should you care to leash your cat like a monster.
5. Wood Cat Clock
6. Kit-Tea Cat Tea infuser
7. Cat Light Switch Sticker
8. Skates and Kittens Accent Rug
9. Cat Note Dispenser
10. Cat Salt & Pepper Shaker
11. Cat Throw Pillow Cover
There are a lot of cat throw pillow covers out there on the Interwebz, and though some are cute, others look like something you'd find in the home of a serial killer. But this timeless piece is fairly simple, and I like it. You should also like it. Okay?
