For all of you who celebrate, Happy Hanukkah! Hellcat and I both celebrate Christmas, so we tend to do a lot of Christmas posts around this time of year, but I know we have some Jewish readers and I hate to leave you out! Here are some great Hanukkah cat items I’ve found on Etsy.
There are some truly amazing Lego contraptions out there. Have you seen the printer made out of Legos? It’s one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen. It’s crazy how someone can take these tiny little plastic bricks and turn them into something that’s actually useful and functional.
If you think this is cool, you’re gonna love these Lego creations made for cats.
You definitely don’t think of cat toys when you think of Legos—unless you mean the pieces themselves, then they’re great for batting around and leaving in places for human feet to step on—but these amazing Lego creations would surely entertain any cat. (Well, for a few minutes anyway. We all know how cats are.)

Wild Cats Secret Hiding Place
Thanks to Catsparella for the find!
Hello fellow cat lovers, and welcome to ModCatLove.com’s first product review! Pixelcat and I received a sample toy pack from designer Kate Benjamin over at Moderncat Studio. Moderncat has many environmentally-friendly, handcrafted, and cost-effective products for your kitty. Today, Pickles the Drummer, Clementine, and Dr. Kitty Purrington sampled four of Moderncat’s most popular toys. Which ones came out the champions?
Pickles (obviously) immediately snooped in the box within seconds of me opening it. The organic catnip was potent enough that my cats could smell it through the box!
Pickles tried out a retro orange, boomerang-shaped, felt Atomic Flyer, a multi-colored Felt Roller, and a natural-colored Jute Bomb. The clear favorite for Pickie was definitely the Atomic Flyer. She could dig her claws into and safely chew on the felt, and I really think she liked the unique shape! She did like to bat at the the Felt Roller and chew on the Jute Bomb, but the Atomic Flyer was the clear winner for Pickles.
I made a silly little video of Pickles enjoying her little boomerang-like Atomic Flyer (I will absolutely be buying a full pack of these shapes, I couldn’t believe how much Pickles loved them!):
I can safely say, however, that the Jute Bomb came in close second for Pickles. SO EXCITED:
Kitty quickly chose the polyfill-stuffed small ModKicker, extremely well-crafted and tough for a hunting cat like himself.
He and Clementine (notorious for sharp teeth and sharper claws) both kicked and scratched and bit at the ModKicker, but there wasn’t a single thread out of place when they finished. Toys like the ModKicker that can withstand rough play are especially important to me.
Of course, while I was quite happy to see how much my cats loved all the toys, I personally loved their unique, trendy designs. As Kate says about the ModKicker, “You won’t mind seeing these scattered around your house,” but I feel the same way about all four of these toys! Snobby Clementine was even happy to pose with them all as a fashion statement to other cats out there:
Look at that model pout! …Or that Catnip-high…
