Cat Christmas Cards - Xmas Cards For Cat Lovers and Their Cats

Updated on November 21, 2009

Cat Christmas cards are ideal for cat lovers, and there's a huge variety of cat-related designs to choose from. And did you know you can also get Christmas cards for cats? While that might sound a little odd to some, many people like to send their cats (and other pets) Xmas cards. This article takes a look at the different types of cat Christmas cards (for both humans and cats) that are available.

Why Cats?

Cats are the most popular pets in many countries, even surpassing 'man's best friend', the dog. If you're a cat lover, you'll understand why – these wonderful animals possess a great mix of affectionate nature, independence, intelligence and downright cuteness that is hard for many people to resist! They're also very pretty to look at, with their wide variety of body shapes, coat colors and patterns, and individual facial features, making them the perfect subjects for artists and photographers.

Cat Xmas Cards – For Humans

If you're looking for a cat-themed card for someone special, you'll probably want to get one which matches their personality. Fortunately, with cats being such a popular pet, there's a lot of different card styles to choose from. Here are some to consider:

Cute & Funny Cat Cards
Cat caricatures, cartoons and cutely drawn cats are among the most popular type of card subjects. There's a lot to choose from in this category, from the classic soft focus kittens in a basket to sharply drawn caricatures of cats in human pursuits.

Famous Cat Cards
Well known cats also feature heavily on Christmas cards. There are usually cartoon cats, such as Garfield, Top Cat or Felix the Cat, and are a great choice for anyone who's a fan of the cat in question!

Cat Photo Cards
Christmas cards featuring straightforward photos of cats are also popular. These can be very beautiful, and you can generally find photo cards of a wide variety of cat types and breeds, such as tabbies, Siamese cats, black cats, ginger cats, and many more. So if the person you're giving to has a particular breed or type of cat, they might be especially happy with a card depicting a similar cat.

Sentimental Cat Cards

Other popular Christmas card cats include those which are rendered in a sentimental style, designed to tug the heartstrings and perhaps present a rather idealized view of cat nature!

Charity Cat Cards
Don't forget that by choosing cat-design Xmas cards, you can also help real cats in need. Many animal charities publish their own ranges of Christmas cards, featuring cats and sometimes other animals too, depending on the charity. So be sure to check these out – they're often available from charity websites, as well as their physical stores.

Personalized Cat Christmas Cards

Another option is to take advantage of one of the many services that offer personalised Christmas cards. With these you can often submit your own photo or design, and/or choose a personalised message to add to an existing design. Personalized cat cards are an excellent way to make an impression.

Homemade Cat Cards

Along the same lines, if you're feeling crafty, you could make your own cat-themed xmas cards. The possibilities are endless here – you could try incorporating photos, drawings or other cat images, and then embellish the card with some glitter or sequins for an extra-Christmassy feel. You don't have to make a perfect work of art either – just taking the time to create something unique can really show the receiver that you care!

Christmas Cards For Cats

So, there's a huge choice of cat and kitten Christmas cards available for humans – what about cards for the cats themselves? Unsurprisingly the choice is a bit more limited here, but passionate pet lovers have ensured that the market for cards for cats is a healthy one, and most card shops will have at least a few designs in stock. Some even come with edible treats or cat toys. Or for the greatest choice (and best prices too), take a look online, where you're sure to find the purrfect Christmas card for your cat!
