Dog Lovers

Dogs are considered 'Man's Best Friend'

The phrase "Man's Best Friend" has been around since the 18th century, referred to in many ways, as shown in this Wikipedia article. Basically, it refers to a dog's loyalty, and companionship to us humans. No matter which breed one chooses, we all love our dogs.

Perfect Gifts for My Brother and Sister-in-Law - They Love Their 'Abbi Girl' Boston Terrier Puppy

Abbi's Favorite Magnets

I'm 'Auntie Pat' to my brother's Boston Terrier rescue pup, Abbi. She 'adores' me - really! :) Abbi told me I needed to get her 'people' these magnets with images of Boston Terriers on them for all sorts of reasons ~ for holding a list of needed items from the grocery and pet stores (favorite food, doggie treats, a new dog toy, etc.), to hold up her latest photo for everyone to see, and just to keep the focus on her - the 'most important' creature in the house! I agree with you, Abbi. :)

If a Couple has a Cat AND a Dog...

This coffee mug absolutely cracks me up, because it is SO true! I'm a woman and a cat lover, so definitely think cats are superior to dogs (but I don't 'really' think women are superior to men...LOL). Dog owners would most probably disagree.

If you know a couple who share both a cat and a dog, this coffee mug would be the perfect fun gift. :)

Clever Cat Cups & Magnets

Calico is a Color...

Did you know that the Calico Cat is not a breed? It's a 'color pattern' that is mostly white, with patches of two other colors, most often in the range of the orange tabby and black. And, as an interesting bit of 'trivia', most calico cats are female! :-)

A Persian is just one of the breeds that can end up with Calico coloring. Others can include the Manx, the American and British Shorthair, and the Japanese Bobtail.

Clever for Cat Owners...

If you are the resident human of a pet cat, you will appreciate this coffee cup message! Any cat-person knows this to be true! :)

A Kitten Named Stormy

Stormy the Kitten - A 'Tuxedo' Cat

I once spent 6 weeks 'fostering' this kitten until his "Forever Home" could be found. If you like, you can read Stormy's story here.

Tuxedo Cats

As the name implies, a Tuxedo cat is named for the fact that it is bicolor - black and white - resembling 'formal wear', like a tuxedo.

The tuxedo cat has been very popular in cartoon form over the years, including Felix Cat, Tomcat from Tom & Jerry, and Sylvester (Puddy Tat) cat.

A tuxedo cat is also one of the three types of cats in the popular video game Minecraft.

Maine Coon Cat

Meet "Mister", the Maine Coon Cat

When Mister came to live with his owner as a kitten, she wanted to wait and observe him for a few days before deciding on a name. Sometimes a kitten's personality will suggest the perfect name. Well, several days went by and the kitten's 'antics' produced the following responses frequently from owner: "You better stop that now, Mister", "You better watch out, Mister, you're going to be in trouble".... :).

After a week or so, she realized that she was always using the word "Mister" in sentences to the kitten... and thus his name evolved! :)

What is a Tabby Cat?

A tabby (or grey tiger as they are sometimes known), is any domestic cat that has a coat featuring distinctive stripes, dots, lines or swirling patterns. A Tabby cat is not a breed, but instead is a color pattern.

Usually this coat pattern will appear together with a mark resembling an 'M' on its forehead. This type of cat includes the Maine Coon Cat, which we think 'Mister' is.

Clever Sayings on Coffee Cups

Matt of Philadelphia features uniquely designed and humorous coffee mugs in his Etsy Shop Perk Me Ups. He begins with an idea and then finds an attractive and often humorous way to work that idea onto the very small space of a coffee mug.

Matt uses a dye sublimation process that chemically bonds the colored ink with the mug itself giving you a mug with a glossy finish and one that is dishwasher safe.

I love coffee mugs (have collected clever ones for years to use regularly for my morning coffee times) and I'm a cat person, so found this original saying from Matt (You've Cat to be Kitten Me Right Meow) very funny and clever. It's a perfect 'play on words' and would make a great gift for a cat lover.

      Pet people are the best! As a dog rescuer, you might like to know that the Boston Terrier puppy I feature here (Abbi) is a rescue pup who now happily lives with my brother & SIL. Thanks for stopping by, Sheila.

      @blestman lm: T-shirts with witty pet sayings are cute too, but I do like coffee mugs. :)

      Great gift ideas. I hae a bumper sticker already on what my dog digs so I would have to go with the mug -- or a baseball cap with a witty dog saying.

      @Diana Wenzel: My brother (owner of Abbi, the Boston Terrier puppy) also has the 4 cats pictured together above. Sounds like your household of 3 cats and 2 dogs is very similar. Our furry friends are special. :)

      I love these gifts. Maybe it's because I'm such a softy when it comes to furry friends. Or, maybe it's because you selected such wonderful items that speak to an animal lover's heart. Since I currently have three cats and two dogs, all rescued, I can definitely appreciate the photos and sentiments featured here.

      I'd choose a dog-lover mug, specifically for my dog's breed.

      I have to choose that dog lovers mug. (Don't tell my Tidbit but I think that Cattail Mug is delightful!)

      Currently I have a cluster of kittens and three mother cats. So I love the cat mugs but also the dog ones, in fact, I love the whole lens. My mini went at Easter and its still a shock when I see her picture on some of my lenses or in my picture gallery, Featured on Talking Pets and also on Care for Kittens. Hugs
