October 29: National Cat Day

Our world changed, on August 29, 2004, when Celestial Angel and Chuck entered our lives.

Nine years later, we began Eastside Cats Blog, as living with cats just became too much fun (and weirdness) to keep to ourselves.

While both The Hubby and I have other hobbies; for him, being grouchy and making excellent food, and for me; reading, yardening, art and architecture, forests and wildflowers, we both accept and proudly commit to being CAT LOVERS!

We are eternally grateful to have cats in our lives, and will do so as long as we draw breath.

What's the most fun, is that we are not alone!  There are other folks out there, with blogs, and stores full of cat things, bookstore cats and library cats...t-shirts with cats...you name it!

Here are a few items in our collection of cat stuff:

2020 Calendar from The Dancing Cat
Maneki Neko from Japan, a gift from my boss

Greeting Card from Wendy Berry

Cat Mask and Catzilla hoodie from Skinny Pete's Gourmet Catnip

 Cast iron cat, from Ditto Consignments

Cat scarf, purchased while shopping in Bath, UK in 2018.

Jigsaw Puzzle

Disclaimer: I purchased or was gifted each item featured today for my own use and amusement, and mention the artist and website as a courtesy to my readers.  I only post about items that I think you all would enjoy, and for no financial gain for myself.  

Although, I think everyone should have a Catzilla shirt!

Let's Hop!

I adore Brian's Home Blog!
I am thankful that they host this blog hop every week; being grateful goes a long way these days!

  8. I love the cat with the coffee. That is exactly how I feel before my first cup of the morning! Second cup and you should be safe to speak to me.

  12. Those are all nice kitty items. I really like the scarf. Thanks for the puzzle. XO

  13. Dad is such a cat person too and isnt it super that we can all see each other on blogs! Back in 1980 we would just be called "Odd." Dad picked up a blind date back then. In chit chat he talked about Ming the Malevolent and Tommy Tumor (no tumor but funny story.) She said "Cats, Ugh, You will simply have to remove them from the house!" Dad looked at her, turned the car around and told her "Get Out!" when they were back in front of her apartment. She did in a huff MOL

  14. Cats are the best! I have too many cat items. Haha, as if that's a thing!


Thanks for your comments; we LURV them! Purrr....
