Weekend Shopping: Cool Cat Fashion

Posted: Updated:

Since I first got a kitten last year, come any kind of occasion - birthdays, Christmas etc - I seem to receive lots of cat-themed cards and gifts. I'm not a cat calendar kind of girl (yet) so thankfully there's a whole ton of really cool, quirky or downright kitsch cat-related stuff around right now from high end designers to the High Street in fashion, footwear and all manner of other home and lifestyle accessories too.

Here are a few of my favourites available now and, by way of apology for anyone who was expecting cute cat pics, I've chucked one in of my gorgeous little girl, Parker, for good measure.
