cool shop for cat lovers

Are you a cat lover? Me too. But when it became time to replace my beat up, generic messenger bag, I wanted a cat themed one, but couldn’t find anything I liked – most were too cutesy for my taste. I also needed gifts for my friends and family, many who are also cat lovers, but that too was difficult to find hip, unique gifts for cat lovers.

So, My Kitty Care searched and found some unique items so you can shop for cat lovers, whether it’s yourself or for the cat lovers in your life, especially you. To start, we created our own collection of Love Your Cat messenger, market/tote and carry-all bags; and the cat iphone wallet wristlet is handcrafted, NYC and designed by My Kitty Care – they are the coolest, unique bags and iphone cases you can find. All of our bags and wristlets are strong and utilitarian, yet hip and fun.

Cat Film Festival at The School of Visual Arts 2017

Rejoice New York City cat lovers! Lucky for us, the first annual Cat Film Festival happens December 9, 2017 at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. But not to worry if you can’t attend the festival, here’s a peek into sharing our love for cats at the NY CFF. The festival is organized into two programs, screening documentaries, fiction, and fun quirky films.

WHERE: The School for Visual Arts Theatre – 333 West 23rd Street (Between 8th & 9th Avenues)
WHEN: Saturday, December 9th 2017 at 3:00 PM & 4:30 PM

  • 3:00 PM “Nobody Owns a Cat” (70 minutes)
  • 4:30 PM “Little Works of Art” (68 minutes)

    The two programs screen completely different films – each program a medley of films celebrating the cats we love so much, in varied environments and situations.  To have the full Cat Film Festival experience you’ll want to see both programs – which are appropriate for everyone in the family.
