Tastemade have a fun compilation of easy cat-themed treats to try with twists on marshmallows, cookies, cake pops and more. They don’t include the full recipes but that means you can use one you’re already familiar with, get a box mix at the supermarket or search online for a vegan version etc.

If you can’t have a cat at home, why not make one? HELLOhappy have a crochet pattern for a chubby cat pillow that looks so huggable and doubles as decor too.
