Do you like to outfit your electronics in kitties? These days, there’s a cat case for just about any device, and once you cover your phone, laptop, or tablet in cats, don’t forget to put cat wallpaper on the screen.
I think it’s telling that after I got my phone a few years ago, my first priority was finding the perfect cat-themed case to show my kitty love. I settled on a black case with a funky cat lady design. Now there’s a huge variety of colorful and cat-shaped cases, which will keep your phone feeling safe and looking stylish at the same time.
1. Rue Cat iPhone Case by Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs may be a dog owner, but he (or someone on his design team) must be a cat lover at heart, because cats keeps popping up in the Marc by Marc Jacobs line. I have a MBMJ crazy cat lady iPhone case from a few seasons back, but this new neon design is surely the boldest look yet.
Rue is a heart-shape nosed kitty, who will watch over your iPhone with her googly-eyes and cute whiskers. I always have a hard time digging my phone out of my bag, so I love that the fluorescent color and pointy ears will make her a cinch to spot at the bottom of any tote or purse!
2. Cat iPhone Case by Ilana Exelby
If you’re looking for a unique cover that will make you stand out from the crowd, Society6 has an excellent selection of cases featuring the original artwork of many artists, including Ilana Exelby.
Exelby’s work initially stood out to me because of its use of bright colors and wild prints, but it was her wide-eyed, tiny-tooth exposing kitty that ultimately won me over. Stuck on a boring call or just need a smile to lighten the day? One look at this fierce feline’s silly expression and you’ll instantly be in a better mood.
3. Lucky Cat iPhone Case
The beckoning cat, or maneki neko, is a Japanese symbol of good luck and often appears in figurine form. But isn’t a phone case the one place where you really could use a little extra luck in case you drop it?
I have a small assortment of lucky cat figurines and other knickknacks featuring the popular symbol of prosperity, and this phone cover is seriously in contention to be the next piece in my collection. The fortunate white-feline case, which features a traditional raised paw and bell necklace, is made of flexible silicone and fits iPhone 4 and 5 models.
4. Cat Phone Case by Forever 21
As cat fashion goes mainstream, you don’t have to look further than your local mall to check out some of the latest cat trends. I recently discovered a wealth of adorable and affordable feline-inspired looks from Forever 21, including this cute case featuring a bow-tie clad kitty.
For less than $10, this dapper dude will keep your phone clean and (hopefully) crack-free, and delight you with his whimsical expression to boot. It comes in lovely hues of mint and pink, so you can pick whichever shade suits your cat fancy.
5. Cat Face Print iPhone Shell by TopShop
If you’re on the prowl for a cool plastic case featuring a real kitty with a kick, I’m smitten with this chic shell from TopShop.
The out-of-focus feline is freaked out with dreamy colors and effects, which take it from an ordinary cat case to a handheld piece of art. Just remember, whichever kitty case you choose, there is no wrong decision. As long as cats are on call, you can never lose!
