On Etsy since 2008

Cool, quality, and unique feline fare, produced by hand in Madison, WI!

TacoCat Creations has its beginnings in Madison, Wisconsin, where we are headquartered and where all of our products are handmade. TacoCat focuses exclusively on creating high quality and unique products for cats.

Cats are often the redheaded stepchild of the pet accessory marketplace. TacoCat was born out of a need for cool, quality, and unique cat toys and accessories. Though we plan to expand and produce dog accessories, our focus will always be on cats.

As lead designer and manufacturer, my devotion for cats and over 25 years sewing experience lead me to create my first line of cat toys, MadRats. They are fully stuffed with catnip and have a huggable, kickable body and a long tail that is safe to play with. Customer requests led me to develop NerdRats soon after, a line of MadRats featuring "nerdy" fabrics like Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, hipster mustaches, and the list goes on.

MewMice, the tough little sister of MadRats, and Nip Mats, a stuffable catnip bed for cats, were born soon after.

New in 2016 are Dapper Cat bowties. They feature bright, fun fabrics for fashionable cats. Each bowtie is and always will be handsewn and fully handmade.
Also new is Pico de Gato, a line of one-ounce packages of potent premium catnip hand-packed in Madison. Guaranteed to drive your cat crazy!
