About likekittysville

Sales 793
On Etsy since 2008

In my 11 years on Etsy, I’ve sold just two cat bed designs. It’s not that I’m not a prolific designer — my house, storage shed, and brain are full of new bed design prototypes that never make it into production. For instance, wall beds that fit like moulding around a door frame, and a window seat that mimics a vintage fire escape. I blame the cats, or rather the quantity of cats in my household. My higher calling is to facilitate each cat’s potential for fabulousness. It’s Montessori for cats in this joint.

This is where I would show off my aesthetically inspiring workspace if I had one. All my pet beds are made in my 1944 house and backyard, with windows open almost year-round and classic movies and music playing 24/7. The house is currently in mid-renovation, inside and out, with myself as the general contractor.

Making kitty beds is fun. I love working outside with power tools while cats sit close by with their ears turned away from the noise. I love spreading out fabric and the cat who immediately spreads herself on it. I love cutting paper patterns while trying not to snip a fur tail. I love hanging prewashed fabric on the line to dry while cats underfoot seek the shade it casts.

And now a word about the cumbersome name of my business. “Like Kittysville” was intended to become this whole beatnik mid-century theme. I’d love to find an illustrator to design a website with a late-‘50s pulp paperback flair. My budget for that, however, is like nullsville.

I have big plans for a future Instagram account filled with cleverly fake Photoshopped images of my wall beds, with cats on board, hanging in public spaces like graffiti-strewn abandoned warehouses or ancient cathedrals. When that happens my Instagram link will be right on this page.
