This long-sleeved tee, featuring a cheeky bird taking advantage of a snoozing cat, is being marketed as nightwear, but I reckon you could get away with pairing it with jeans during daylight hours. (And no, I’m not one of those people who puts a coat on over their pyjamas to pop down the corner shop – in case you were wondering!)
The ASOS Cat Print Contrast Night Sweater is available in sizes XS – L for the bargain price of £8.50. The matching Night Joggers are available for £12.50.
This month three lucky Cool for Cats UK readers will win one of these lovely Meow Scarves, kindly supplied by Blue Raspberry. The 100% cotton scarves are generously-sized (180cm x 70cm), and feature an abstract cat design in fresh greens and cool blues on a neutral stone-coloured background.
Blue Raspberry kindly sent me a Meow Scarf to try out, and I love it. It’s made from beautifully soft, lightweight cotton, and the modern print is unmistakably cat but not at all mad-cat-lady – the purrfect spring/summer accessory for cat lovers!
Blue Raspberry are a new label who launched in London earlier this year. Their full range of ‘young, sassy and slightly irreverent’ scarves can be viewed here.
