BESTeam Feature / March 7, 2011

Bobo The Orange Monkey Organic Catnip Bell Cat Toy

My BESteam Feature for the week is on a lovely gal named Linda. Linda is the shop owner of All about Cats on Etsy.
This shop is truly what its titled!
In this shop you will find the sweetest little Cat Toys, and a variety of other handmade items, all designed in cat print material.

Linda grew up on a small farm located in Stafford, Vermont. She attributes her creative side, and her love of nature, from her mother, whom she refers to fondly and respectfully. She remembers as a young girl, she would often sit by her mother and watched her design and create things. To this day, Linda still has the braided rug, shaped in the form of a Heart, that her mother made. These two also shared time together enjoying a horseback ride, skiing, and hiking, along with her brothers as well, on the Long Trail in Vermont.

Today, Linda still lives in Vermont. She shares her home with three adorable cats, Maggie, Brady and Jerry, which she rescued from a barn. I am sure that these three are fascinated in watching her aquarium full of fish that she has also!

Being a cat owner myself, I really enjoyed looking at Linda’s Etsy Shop: AllaboutCats.
And even if you don’t own a furry little sweetie, you may have a friend or two who would adore gifts for their cat, or gifts for themselves!
Here are just a few of my favorite items: I couldn't resist showing this, The monkey has the same name as my son.

And this Cat Print Mini Wallet, this style is so functional. I have one similar to this. I carry everything in it!
Not that I don't like purses or anything like that, but when I am running errands, and on the go, this style is so much easier to carry!

And who could be without one of these, whether you have a feline or not, this is always an essential item to have and carry. And is definitely a very cute print!
