This striking tea towel is the latest edition to the Fat Kitty range from The Nosuch Disco. The 100% cotton, screen printed tea towel features Fat Kitty demanding ‘Less dishes, more fishes.’ And who can blame him?
Regular readers will know that Fat Kitty is based on real life obese puss, Oscar – friend and neighbour of Dave Burgess, the designer behind The Nosuch Disco brand. I should add that Dave is not responsible for Oscar’s diet, Oscar just likes to hang out round Dave’s place and watch telly and stuff.
The Fat Kitty Tea Towel is available from The Nosuch Disco UK Etsy shop for £7.00.
For regular updates on Oscar, the real Fat Kitty, check out The Nosuch Disco Facebook page.

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.
If you’re fed up with those little piles of small change scattered around your home, this Japanese money box – featuring a kleptomaniac kitten – will provide you with a handy shrapnel storage system: simply place a coin in the food bowl and watch as the kitten pops out of the box, snatches your cash and then meows a little thank you. How cute is that?!
