Tubby Cranky Cat Planter

First of all, let me apologize for not being around.  I’ve been sick, in a wedding (in Detroit!), sick again, and sick.  But I am back!  Here is a weird cat planter my mom put in my Easter basket!

He’s weird.. he looks kinda cranky, and he has a bunny.


Yawning?  Yelling?  Your guess is as good as mine.

    Welome back, Nessa! Always love seeing your stuff. You have the greatest planter collection ever.

    I love this little fat guy especially. And how odd for him to have a little bunny in tow. Actually, he makes very little sense which you know makes me like him even more.

    Love his little mitten hands.

    Thanks Allee! =) Saying I have the best collection ever is a real compliment coming from the Queen of Kitsch.

    Also, I forgot to mention, it looks like the actual “planter” part of this one is a pumpkin with the top cut off… adding to the surrealism of this piece.

    I think you have a great planter collection too. I can only imagine what they look like all presented together. I don’t always comment on them, but I think they are way cool including this one.

      Yes! I hope sometime soon I have a nice shelf or cabinet to put them in, or a suitable display space. Right now they are mostly boxed up as my life is in a bit of a tizzy at the moment.

    I think he looks like he’s just waking up from a night’s sleep and giving up a great big yawn. Aren’t those jammies he’s wearing? And he’s got his cuddle bunny with him too. Just my take . . . . I have no idea about the pumpkin. Maybe he sleeps in it? A darling piece of vintage ceramic. I would totally grab this if I saw it at a flea market or antique store. (:

    aw, super cool! I must tear myself away, what a groovy time I’ve had poking around all this fabulous stuff, ’til next time. Thanks Allee for putting together such a fun site!
