If you are into cats, you probably have heard of Rich & Willow, the little black adventure cat. 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, Willow has become somewhat of an icon. So much so, that there is a book and a new 2022 calendar available with 12 amazing shots of Willow, plus a bonus month and bonus postcards with every order. Willow is so cute that you’ll want one for yourself as well (use coupon 10off2ndcalendar at checkout for $10 off your order when you buy two). Free shipping Australia wide.

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 tranquillity in the modern world!
(around AUD $25)
