7) The Oatmeal book ‘How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you’
If your cat is kneading you, that’s not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. If your cat brings you a dead animal, this isn’t a gift, it’s a warning. ‘How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You’ is a hilarious, brilliant offering of comics, facts, and instructional guides about crazy cat behaviours from the creative wonderland at TheOatmeal.com.
(around AUD $22)
8) ‘Pussweek’ Book (several editions)
Another great Aussie-made product: ‘Pussweek’ is a collectable coffee table book written by cats, for cats. Humans have Vogue and GQ, cats have ‘Pussweek’. Each issue of ‘Pussweek’ is different, yet equally hilarious, and essential litterbox reading.
‘Pussweek’ is a printed book of the highest quality, so your cat can chew on it and/or sleep on it when you’re done!
(around AUD $15)
9) Van Cat Meow 2021 Calendar
If you are into cats, you probably have heard of Rich & Willow. When Rich quit his job, sold all his belongings and started a road trip with his rescue cat Willow, he didn’t know where this change of lifestyle will take the two of them. Since then, the camper van travelling cat Willow has become an icon. So much, that there is a book and a new calendar available with adorable shots of this black cutie.
Show support to this young Aussie man and his feline partner in crime.
(around AUD $33)
10) Exploding Kittens card game
Exploding Kittens is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette.
Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. The deck is made up of cards that let you avoid exploding by peeking at cards before you draw, forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards, or shuffling the deck. The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because fewer cards left in the deck means a greater chance of drawing the kitten and exploding in a fiery ball of feline hyperbole.
It was the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter and apparently has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world!
(around AUD $33)
