Kitty Business

I am CEK here - Chief Executive Kitty!

Did you know that this Saturday, November 24, is Small Business Caturday? My human found out about an offer, where we could have free posters made to publicize the day and encourage everyone to “shop small” from kitties like us! Unfortunately, when she picked up the posters from the local FedEd Office, they misspelled it!

I hope this does not look too unprofessional.

But don’t worry, I made sure it got fixed! This is an important time of year for us small businesses because with holiday shopping, it is our big chance to make some good sales! I hope you do lots of shopping this season from small businesses instead of all those big, generic chain stores. It will make your gifts so much more memorable!

These are just a few of the gifts I have for sale at my Zazzle shop!

Please buy small, both locally and online. You can start by shopping at my Designer Cat Merch Shop on Zazzle — and they are having a sale for the next week! Use code CALENDARTIME to get 25% off my awesome 2013 Cat Rules Wall Calendar, and use code ALLCARDSSALE to get a big 50% off my greeting cards! Both coupons end on November 27 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time, so hurry!

Also remember, my books make great gifts for anyone on your list who loves cats, and who loves to laugh!

What a ham! Sheesh.

But I know I am not the only small kitty business out there! If you are selling cat items — whether they are gifts for cats or cat gifts for humans — please tell me below in the comments and let me know if I can use a photo of one of the items you are selling! I would love to promote your business this week!

    That is such a great idea to promote the small businesses. We don’t have anything to sell. Wish we did. We need to get that widget up for you books. Take care and have a great day

    for us buying from small businesses is an event that goes on ALL year. I HATE buying from major chains and avoid it like the plague. Give me the unusual “haunts” any day! That is what makes an item unique!

    We love that photo of Binga! We like to buy from small businesses too since our mommy has one with her Etsy shop! She sells kitty things for humans among other things. Thanks for promoting Small Business Caturday!

    Even though I am a goat I am still a small business. Well, AbbyGoat is not so small but that is besides the point. It is not my fault she is a piggiegoat! I have cat soaps if that counts. They are at

    The publicist makes jewelries too. She dressed me in pearls once. Can you imagine such a thing. Me! In PEARLS! I am a goat not a fashion model. Harumph. But she makes the monies to buy me apples so I guess it’s OK.

    thank you for supporting small businesses with piggiegoat workers.

    Thanks for reminding us and for fixing that poster! We love the idea of Small Business Caturday and finally have Quint’s Art Show open for business over at His painting photos are there. LOVE Binga’s picture. What a cute, silly one! Purrs…

    That pic of Binga is hilarious.

    So is the correction of the spelling on the sign. LOL. Of course they assumed they were correcting an error. 😀

    We agree it’s always better to shop from small, individually owned stores, both on-line and in person, if one is able to.

    Hi Sparkle!
    What a great idea!!!
    We have a few new holiday items in our Zazzle store and just gave the shop a little Glogirly-facelift. We would LOVE to have one of our products featured! You can use anything you’d like. The newest items are a “Very Katie Christmas” card and the “All Season Cat” card & mug.

    Here’s the link to our store:

    Thank you!!
    xo, Katie & Glogirly

    My mom LOVE to shop at small stores and get gifts that you can´t find in the BIG places.
    My mom shall see if we can buy any of your stuff from ??
    We learned the hard way that it´s furry expensive to buy stuff from because the postoffice in Sweden want´s many green papers and the taxmen too before you get hands on your package :(

    I can’t wait until the Nipclub Holiday Bazaar! That was my idea, you know, cos so many of my furrends have little shops. I don’t YET but hope everyone else does well this season.

    If you could just paste a C over the S, Sparkle 😀 That’s a great idea for shopping small. We took advantage of an earlier promo code for your calender. We can’t wait to see it. We look forward to learning about some other places to shop this week :)
