There are two types of first-time mothers. There are those mothers who decorate the baby’s nursery for the baby. Teddy-bear printed bedding. Chunky plastic toys in bright primary colors. Dancing elephant mobiles in gender-friendly pink or blue.

Then there are those mothers who decorate the nursery for themselves. Mid-century modern cribs. Monochromatic color schemes in dusty lavender or yellow and gray. Carefully selected wall garlands, lace tents, and a curated bookshelf styled with a vintage metal piggy bank, a precious stuffed bunny with a flower crown, and, just maybe, a couple of actual books.

If I were a mother, I’d be the latter.

Of course, I’m not a mother, but I did just start fostering cats. And with cats come cat toys and cat accessories and cat supplies and endless amounts of things for your cats. There are scratching posts and litter boxes and food dishes and little mice stuffed with catnip and all of a sudden my perfectly curated aqua-everything apartment is being overrun by my new fluffy roommates’ paraphernalia.

So, obviously, I’ve been spending all my time looking for modern cat supplies that don’t make me cry. Ones that fit in with my style and don’t clash with my decor. Ones that I actually don’t mind having in my apartment. And I’ve found so many cute little things that I might just let these cute little babies take up even more space… (I mean, I even found an aqua blue litter box.)

Of course, you do have to be practical too. All of my cats have loved this basic scratching post — built tall and sturdy. And they can’t get enough of the simple but fun Cat Dancer toy. After all, cats don’t really care if their toys match your room.

But, because maybe you do, here’s a roundup of the cute and modern cat supplies I’ve found: comfy beds, stylish scratching posts, fun food & water bowls, cool climbing trees, and quirky toys & accessories for your cats and kittens…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    This is hilarious! Also, the cat wearing the unicorn horn does NOT look happy to be wearing it!

    LOL!!! I am a mom, and I am so the latter mom 😉 Same with the cats. I am seriously in love with those cat bowls with the kitties on them. And the shark cat bed. And the pizza. And that unicorn horn! My sister and I were shopping not long ago and came across the horn and cracked up. Of course, my cat would never in a million years allow me to put it on him, but it was fun to laugh about anyway 🙂 Thanks for these classy, modern options. Now, how to hide these garish children’s toys…
