Welcome to the Katzenworld Shop,
We are a family run business that specialises in gifts for the whole family. As our name suggests a majority of our products of course have a cat angle to them. 😉
We originally started out as a cat blog before venturing into retail business. We pride ourselves in stocking only top quality products. Each one has been carefully tested before we decide to stock it. Purchases from our Shop help us run our Blog and we also support charities such as our main charity partner International Cat Care.
We often get asked how it comes we stock tonies. Well… a few years back on our hunt for cat-themed toys for children on a busy toy fair in Birmingham we walked passed the tonies stand and got attracted by the ears of the toniebox which so reminded us of cat ears! Add a few actual cat-themed tonies like the unicorn kitty and voila we were all set to venture into the world of tonies. 😀
If you prefer to shop in person you can meet us at many shows around the UK .
So how did it all start? Because we loved reading about cats on the internet we were really keen on putting together a portal not just for our own cats but also as a one-stop source on all things cats for our friends and fellow cat lovers.
We are always happy to ship worldwide and if you sign-up to our Newsletter (click on the email icon in the top or put your details in the form in the side-bar) you’ll receive a welcome discount and ongoing sales discounts.

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of the Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, including Cats’ Eyes, Copy Cats, Cat’s Paw, and Cat Call (coming in October 2017). The series features Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in a catnip patch. Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, and the Cat Writers’ Association. This year she won a CWA Muse Medallion for her 3-part blogpost series, Life Stages. Mollie lives in Portland’s eclectic Hawthorne district with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like her character, Lynley Cannon, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.
