Feline Favorites & Special Cat-Themed Products Keep Customers Coming Back
If you’ve been to the Cat Adoption Team shelter in Sherwood, Oregon, then it’s no doubt you know about the variety of cat supplies for sale in our retail area. For years, we’ve carried “starter” pet products to help on your adoption journey—things like food, litter boxes, toys, scratchers, and collars. What you may not know is that we’ve been expanding our line of goods to include specialty items for your cats, as well as novelty items for humans!
CAT prides ourselves on our selection of unique products from local, sustainable, and small businesses. Some of our most popular items are:
WTW Cat Posts and Scratchers offers high-quality climbing posts, prized among cats for their stability and durability. And they’re a top choice of humans because of their affordability. Owner Lance crafts his unique designs from locally sourced lodgepole pine in Redmond, Oregon. Plus, these scratching posts and cat trees are attractive enough to boost your home decor!
For Mew is a small, female-run business, specializing in catnip kickers and mats. Stacey, the owner and sewist, utilizes recycled stuffing for her products. Plus, she sources some of the most colorful and hilarious fabrics we’ve seen — all with the help of her trusty sidekicks, Misha the cat and Skeet the ”honorary cat” (read: dog).
Dharma Dog Karma Cat supplies our store with colorful, hand-crafted cat toys and stylish cave beds. This small company is mindful of the impact pet supplies can have on our planet. They engage in fair-trade practices and use eco-conscious materials. Bonus: When your cat is done loving their bed or toy, you can compost it!
Our crafty friends at Sweet Pickles Designs make wearable art you won’t want to pass up. From her craft room in southwest Portland, Shana sews whimsical bow ties and kitty corsages that slip over your cat or kitten’s collar. This hyper-local small business is also co-owned by Ramona, a proud—and adorable—CAT alumni.
Cat Dancer toys are always a hit. You and your kitty will love the rainbow charmer, cat dancer, and the rainbow chasers. These toys are made in a fully solar, Wisconsin-based factory. Good for cats and the environment!
For cat perches, you cannot beat the PNW-made Kitty Cot. Rated to sustain up to 25 lbs. of feline, these window perches are a customer—and cat—favorite. Jim loves cats and has created 3 sizes of cots to suit all your cat-holding needs.
Sock it to Me makes some fashionable footwear. We carry about two dozen of their cat-themed socks for you to choose from. You won’t be able to resist the cheeky design names from this Portland-based company.
“We strive to stock a lot of solution products as well as products we have learned that cats love,” says Bobbie Winchell, CAT’s retail manager. “Keep checking back as we get expect to get some brand new cat socks and supplements to keep your kitties happy!”
Next time you’re in the market for some one-of-a-kind items for your cat or yourself, come see us. Our retail store is open during regular adoption hours inside the Cat Adoption Team shelter at 14175 SW Galbreath Drive, Sherwood, Ore.
