Smug Tabby Cat Eco-friendly Mousemat Helps Animals in Need!

tabby cat eco-friendly mousemat

This tabby cat has a right to look smug: not only is he very handsome, he also adorns an eco-friendly mousemat sold in aid of the UK’s largest animal rights group, Animal Aid.

Animal Aid was founded in 1977 and campaigns peacefully against all forms of animal abuse as well as promoting a cruelty-free lifestyle.  The group investigates and exposes animal cruelty, bringing these important issues to public attention.

The Eco-friendly Mousemat, made from 22 recycled vending cups and measuring 24cm x 19cm, is available for a very reasonable £4.25 from the Animal Aid Ethical Shop.

A Selection of Cute & Kitsch Cat Buttons for Crafty Types

Here’s a selection of cat buttons for all you sewists, knitters and hookers (I mean that in the crochet sense of the word).  Or maybe (like me) you rarely have cause to buy new buttons, but can’t stop looking at haberdashery on the interweb.  Incidentally, don’t worry if you fall into the latter category – it’s a faintly odd but essentially harmless obsession.

T-shirt for Cat Men – Lazer Cats from DEDICATED!

Strictly speaking this is a unisex garment, available in sizes XS – XL, but I’m calling it a cat man t-shirt as it’s so rare to find a cat tee that a bloke may actually wear.
