Cats are increasing in popularity, so it’s fairly easy to find kitty-themed clothing … even undies. You need to know where to find the very best in underwear for you and your favorite cat fancier, so we’ve assembled this top-notch shopping guide with some of our favorite picks for men and women.

The cat-tastic underwear extravaganza starts right MEOW.

1. Space Cats Staple Men’s Boxer Briefs — $24.99

Oh, my stars! Look at this Space Cat underwear! What’s better than an astronaut cat plastered on your thigh? How about fuzzy cats free-floating through space across your butt cheeks (it’s true — click on the link). Yass! Ethika’s polyester-spandex boxer briefs boast four-way stretch, which is what everyone wants in their Space Cat underwear.

2. Sugar Skull Thong Underwear — $18

This is not normally a huge selling feature, but … every day can be Day of the Dead for your “downstairs” when you wear these Sugar Skull thong underwear. These are made-to-order from an indie designer through Storenvy and created with organic cotton, stretch lace, and rhinestones. My favorite part about these skull-crotch thongs? They’re made in Beaverton, Oregon. Not even kidding.

3. You’ve Got to Be Kitten Me Right Now Boxer Briefs — $20.99

This phrase is a popular one often seen on T-shirts, but now you can wear it stretched across your privates! When a person sees “You’ve got to be kitten me right meow” on your NDS Wear underwear, you hope he or she is reading it with awe and not complete sarcasm. There’s a difference.

4. Space Cats Boy Shorts — $20

These cotton-lycra boy shorts made by an Etsy retailer are out of this world. In fact, the designer says they’re “the most comfortable underwear you will ever own.” That’s quite a claim; however, I’m a believer that space cats are full of magic, so anything is possible.

5. The Staple Black Tiger Boxer Briefs — $24.95

Ethika’s gone wild with these tiger-print cotton-spandex boxer briefs. I’d think that as soon as you slide these bad boys on, you’d feel 100 percent fiercer. In addition to the wildcat print, the underwear is made with flat-lock stitch. I don’t know about you, but I think that sounds kind of sexy.

Would I want my man to wear these tiger undies? Probably not — they’re not all that appealing to me personally, but the part about the flat-lock stitch might win me over. Do I know what a flat-lock stitch is? That’s not even the point.

6. 6-Pack Laser-Cut Panties — $17.95-$20.95

Why wear one pair of cat underwear when you can wear six? Not all at the same time, of course. ToBeInStyle offers this pack of cotton-spandex panties for a crazy-reasonable price. Plus, they’re laser-cut. I think that’s only fair since there aren’t laser cats present anywhere on the undergarments.

Since there are six to a pack, that’s one for nearly every day of the week! You’ll either have to wear the same pair all weekend long, or time your laundry day so you’ll always have clean underpants. Either way, YAY for six-packs of cat panties!

7. Sexy Meow Star Modal Briefs — $5.97

“Is that a tabby on your underwear or are you just happy to see me?” Newchic’s short boxer briefs come in a variety of colors, but each sport the zoned-out cat face right on the you-know-where area. And, according to the site, they’re suitable for all seasons! So if you’re looking for underwear adorned with a tabby face that you can wear in the winter as well as summer months … here you go!

8. Hello Kitty Turquise Seamless Boy Short — $12

No proper cat underwear collection would be complete without Hello Kitty. Also, I admit these are my favorite in the selection of the ones we chose to feature here. The cut looks comfortable, the colors are cute, and … Hello Kitty. Rakuten.com, the online company that sells these nylon-polyester-spandex boy shorts, should change its name to RaCUTEn.com.

9. Kitty Glitter Underwear — $29.84

Ah, we’ve saved the very best for last. I can’t imagine a pair of men’s boxers more magical than these purple, glittery, cat-flying-out-of-the-crotch ones. Let’s Rage has hit the ball (sorry) out of the park with this item.
