A Tale Of Two Kitties

Cat lovers will reach owner-enlightenment with glasses featuring yin and yang images exploring feline duality. Corresponding cat wisdom in English and Chinese floats above each image, while the secret of true harmony: "The Tao of Cat is to do your thing and leave the kitty alone" runs along the side of each glass in English and Chinese.

The many sides of kitty include:

Thinker/Player: "In catnip there is dignity"
Hiss/Purr:"Napping overcomes wrath"
Bad Cat/Good Cat:"To obey is to resist"
Go Away/Love Me:"To shun is to adore"

Made in the USA. Sold as a set of 4.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

Comments about Cat Tao Glasses - Set of 4:

The glasses were cute. I gave them to my roommate for his birthday. The main problem is they are not dishwasher safe. I have a feeling they will be destroyed after 10 washes or so but otherwise they have a cute design and are great glasses.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was kind of annoying. UPS apparently tried to deliver it but left no notice and then gave it to the post office to deliver. It was all very strange and I was surprised that they actually came. I was prepping myself for a fight.

Comments about Cat Tao Glasses - Set of 4:

Excellent looking fun set of glasses for anyone who likes cats. Great gift for someone out on their own for first time who doesn't have glassware et al.

Service and delivery comments:

Fast communication and shipping. Excellent careful packaging with more than enough material to prevent breakage if run over by tractor trailer.

    I bought these glasses for my sister-in-law. She loved them! Most cat items you find are a bit cheesy, but these glasses are such a fun way to celebrate the cat lover. Looks like I'll have to get her the coasters next!

          I don't usually roll with "cute" things but these glasses are witty more than they are cutesy, and so true!

          A pint glass is the right size for so many beverages, and these feel durable and are comfortable to hold. I hand wash everything so this is not material to me, but it should be noted that these are not dishwasher safe.

          I am delighted with these glasses.

                They are fun pint glasses. If you are a cat person, you'll dig these.
