Stuff We Love – Fall/Win 2013


Modern Cat staffers’ picks of the litter

"Julep" bow tie by Sweet Pickles Design

With the clothes of a dandy and the reputation of a rogue, my cat should have been named Rhett. He rarely gives a damn but he's always in vogue, thanks to his new “Julep” bow tie from Sweet Pickles Designs. If you need us, we'll be on the veranda.—Maxine "Gone with the Wind" Matishak ($6 for bow tie, collar not included, sweetpicklesdesigns.com)

Canvas Travel Bag from The Medium Control

A durable duffle is a must have in your luggage arsenal, and this Watson the Cat Canvas Travel Bag from The Medium Control in safari khaki is sturdy and stylish. Great for holiday travel!—Lauren ($56, goods.mediumcontrol.com)

Portrait by Carrie Walker from Paper Cats

Now that my grey Tabby BB is reaching a ripe old age, I really want to do something special to commemorate our bond. What better than a portrait of him done by artist Carrie Walker from Paper Cats? She completely captured his grumpy cattitude. Me-ow!—Mary (From $320, papercats.ca)

Kitten throw from Green 3 Apparel

Talk about two birds with one stone! This super-soft kitten throw from Green 3 Apparel is both adorable and environmentally conscious. Made from pre-consumer recycled cotton, it will keep me perfectly warm and cozy this fall.—Celine ($48, green3apparel.com)

Galaxy Cat tee from the Brave store

This oversized Galaxy Cat tee is outta this world. Both street and sweet, it perfectly expresses my love of cats and outerspace.—Jessica ($18, brave.storenvy.com)

Kittywalk Penthouse from Kittywalk

Topping your indoor cat's wish list? Kittywalk Penthouse outdoor enclosure, which allows cats safe access to the outdoors so they can enjoy the fresh air and watch birds. The vertical design makes it ideal for small balconies! —Connie ($210, kittywalk.com)

Sterling silver charms by Mark Poulin

Charmed, I'm sure. Mark Poulin's super-cute trio of sterling silver charms— space cat, cat head, and pocket cat—on a sterling-plated bracelet is all kinds of wonderful.—Jennifer ($83, markpoulin.com)

Carrier by Sleepypod

It's a carrier, a bed, and, most importantly, an airline approved in-cabin pet carrier! Sleepypod designed this carrier with a purpose—to be all-purpose! Made so it can be strapped to your bike, secured in the car, or brought on airplanes, it's got you covered!—Vanessa ($159, sleepypod.com)

Tee from Squirrel Den Studios

Sometimes I worry my humans just don’t have their priorities straight. They do strange things like “go on vacation” or “work late” when they could be at home with me, giving me treats. But when I see them sporting these shirts from kitty-loving company Squirrel Den Studios, I’m reassured that they recognize who is boss around here. Plus, with a portion of each sale going to help the SPCA, I know that I’m using my powers for good.—Domestic Shorthair Cordelia ($22, etsy.com/shop/SquirrelDenStudio)
