Dog lovers had their day on August 26th, but now it’s the cats’ turn. October 29th was National Cat Day, but we think it should be National Cat Week. Having recently attended the L.A. Feline Film Festival and the first ever Hello Kitty Con, I got the chance to discover some really pawsome cat toys from cat-themed vendors who were more than willing to offer exclusive discounts to Bargain Babe readers.
12 cat toys for felines and their humans
How cool are these products – and savings?!
1. Doctor Mew tee
Artist Jenny Parks, a self-professed “shameless nerd,” is a professional illustrator and cat lover. Her work has been featured in the Cat Art Show Los Angeles and most recently, she has done covers for a few Marvel comics for their Animal Variant series. We love this “Doctor Mew” shirt which is on sale for only $5! Perfect for the cat-loving Dr. Who fan. And check out her other products, too!
2. Custom painted ID tags
A favorite Etsy seller of mine is ImagineByDay. They offer lots of cute and creative cat-themed merchandise. This custom-painted cat tag is only $8! Your pet will be stylin’ while you’re saving money! Use the coupon code “NCD14” for 15% off your purchase until the end of November 2014.
3. Crazy Cat Lady Clothing
We’re crazy for this online store’s super cool merchandise – no ugly “cat lady” sweaters here! Use the DISCOUNT CODE bargainbabe15% through November 30th, 2014.
4. Catty Stacks
Because cats love boxes! These durable, eco-friendly modular cat boxes come in cool colors and prints and are a fun and innovative alternative to traditional “cat furniture.” A 2-pack is only $28.99. Use the COUPON CODE FFF2014 for 20% off through November 30th, 2014.
5. The Cat Crib
6. The Yoga Cat Mat
You may have seen the videos of cats and dogs interrupting their owners while they’re doing yoga. No more, now that there’s an “alternative to sharing a yoga mat with your human.” Is your cat really going to start doing the Downward Dog? Probably not, but they will want to play with this “yoga mat” which is ideal for scratching, sharpening claws and practicing one’s “resting pose.” Use COUPON CODE BARGAINBABE1 at checkout for $5 off any yoga mat toy or any purchase of $24.99 or more through December 31st, 2014.
7. Handmade catnip toys.
Miso Handmade features creative and fun homemade pet gifts, including catnip toys like this one. Use COUPON CODE bargainbabe5 for $5 off until January 1st, 2015. Your cat will thank you for it!
8. Organic catnip
Organikat promotes the organic lifestyle and joyfully brings that lifestyle not only to our kids (oops, we meant kitties), but cats everywhere. Save $1.00 on this feline-tested, feline-approved, feline-went-bonkers-for Organikat toy.
9. Breakaway safety collar
Last week, one of our cats lost her collar. I stopped by PetSmart and the average collar for an adult cat is $7.99. The next day, I was in the 99 Cents Only Store and saw an entire row of similar-in-style, similar-in-quality breakaway tags. For $7 less! They also sell fuzzy toy mice, balls to bat around and feather toys. I would not recommend the catnip, however. It contains wood shavings for filler and is therefore less effective. (My cats turned their noses up at it.)
10. Handmade felt ornaments in your pet’s image.
Also by ImagineByDay. Contact Seller and make a special request. One ornament, made to order, is $5.85. Got more than one pet? The more you order, the more the price goes down. Use the coupon code “NCD14” for 15% off your purchase until the end of November, 2014.
11. Catnip facial
Yes, you read that right. I tried it and it made my skin feel tingly and tight (in a good way). Alas, I did not roll around on the floor and lose my cool, then suddenly dart off into another part of the house for no reason. Windfall Naturceuticals is offering free shipping with COUPON Code: FREESHP-NCD until December 19th, 2014.
12. Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Hello Kitty Merchandise
Can you believe Hello Kitty is 40 years old? She looks great! (Must be all those catnip facials!) Order exclusive merchandise, like this Hello Kitty molded bag from Loungefly and receive a FREE TOTE BAG with your $100 purchase while supplies last.
