What’s up in the world of Notso Kitty?

Greetings readers! It has been ages since I have posted an update, yet there has been much that has been happening in the world of Notso Kitty that I can’t wait to share with you! Alas, since there is only one of me, blogging about my progress has taken a backseat to actually trying to get things off the ground in recent months. Now that I’m getting into a new routine though I hope to make room for some status updates from time to time! Here goes!

General Updates

After CatCon and the press and media attention that came with that, I decided to accelerate the timeline in which I quit my engineering job to do cat entrepreneur pursuits full-time. At first I thought I could stay a few more months to years in engineering— still doing cat hats on the side. But a few months later (after a few additional soul-sucking moments that reminded me why I wanted to do cat pursuits full time to begin with) I decided the time was finally right to pull the trigger. Armed with the confidence bought on by CatCon attention and a huge order for Cat 3-D Glasses from KitNipBox I received, I decided my last day in engineering was to be October 1st.

In the weeks since I have quit my engineering job I am still largely playing catch up with the projects for Notso Kitty that I have been planning out for awhile. The first things I have been busy with are getting ready for the Salem Open Market— a huge market of crafters in Salem, MA scheduled to coincide with the city’s popular Halloween events. Last weekend was the first of three weekends I will be having a shop at. Sales went well, but I was a little surprised how much more reserved east coast people are about dressing their cats than the west coast people I observed at CatCon. For the 2nd weekend, I’m bringing more kitty-ear accessories and things for humans (more new designs I have been working on) to see how those do. I would have bought them the first weekend, but I simply ran out of time before I could get everything ready!

New Designs

Speaking of getting things ready, here are some new designs I have been toying around with lately. As well as ideas for new cat hats and cat ears for humans, I have expanded my kitty bow tie offerings over on Etsy. Here are some pics of the new designs!

How could I not design a kitty witch hat living in Salem, MA?!? This one has a cute mouse— as I imagine most cats would want on their witch hats 🙂

I feel like I might be selling out a little by making things for humans, but here are some of the first lace cat ears I put together. Not too shabby!

More updates coming soon!
