If you’re already a fan of the Cats of Instagram, then you might already know that the aww-inducing site has launched its own store. Featuring T-shirts, prints, tote bags, iPhone cases, and more, the Cats of Instagram store is also home to some faces you might recognize — like Pudge the cat! The store teamed up with illustrator Cheryl C. of TheCraftySisters.com to create a series of adorable cat designs. Our favorite is the Birth of Cat limited-edition print below.
Come November, the Cats of Instagram store will be rolling out a 2013 calendar, and they were kind enough to send me a copy to check out.
These days, people refer more to the calendars on their phones or on their computers, which actually sort of elevates the old-fashioned wall calendar to a state of art. Though most of our lives are online now, it can be helpful to have a wall calendar posted somewhere like the kitchen for quick, easy visual reference — and to add some personal style and flare.
I’m really impressed with the Cats of Instagram calendar. Richly printed on a matte card stock, the 12-month calendar is adorned with images curated from user-submitted Cats of Instagram photos. Spiral-bound, the calendar lies perfectly flat against the wall and stays there. There is plenty of space to write in important birthdays, holidays, and appointments. And also: cats! Lots and lots of them! Each month is accompanied by six darling kitties.
Even though I’m totally plugged into an online life, I’m actually really looking forward to the new year — just so I can put my Cats of Instagram calendar up in my kitchen, where it will not only look cool, but also totally help my roommate and I keep track of each other’s schedules.
The calendar will be available Friday, November 2, for a cool $19.99 (plus shipping and handling) at the Cats of Instagram Store.
