So basically, it took me years before I got to the point where I was okay with the taste of coffee – let alone to the point where I was happy drinking it every morning. I’ve not been drinking coffee every morning for very long – maybe a year?
My husband has a really adorable anchor & blue stripe, naval-themed mug that he uses for his coffee in the morning and throughout the day for both coffee and tea. While it’s awesome, I figured I’d look for a smaller mug for me, since I’m really not able to handle as much coffee as he is in the morning and I don’t really drink too much else during the day. I decided to browse around for some cute cat mugs to grab for myself and.. well there are a lot. Way more options than I thought! Figured I’d post some of my favourites to a list, since I was browsing around for cat mugs for myself anyway.
But then the list of cups I loved got longer.. and longer. So I split up the ones I thought were cute/pretty/downright gorgeous from the ones that I thought were hilarious. This article’s for the pretty mugs – the article with the funny cat mugs can be found here.
For the record, I do apologize preemptively in case this leads you to spiral into hours and hours of browsing cute cat products like it did with me…
17 Cute Cat Mugs I Absolutely Adore
I’m sorry, but I’m obsessed with his/her style items if they’re done right, and these black/white matching cat mugs – done so very right. No words can express just how much I love this mug set, and if Thomas didn’t need much coffee in the morning, I’d gun for grabbing these. Actually might make the buy anyway, and just keep both all to myself. Love, love, love these ones!
Not the first handle-as-a-cat-tail mug I’ve seen in my life, but definitely one of the prettier ones. Very sleek, minimalist, and pretty gorgeous if you ask me. Kinto actually has tonnes of different animals in this line, so if you’re looking for a massive matchy but not too matchy mug set collection to pull out when friends and family come over, check the line out because they’d be awesome for that kind of thing. No one will ever mix up and forget which cup is theirs again; all everyone has to do is remember which animal they chose,and they’re set to go!
I feel like this mug is so pretty because of the illustrations, and unlike most of the cups on this list, it’s pretty hard to get bored of considering there are so many cute kitties to look at. I’m terrible at remembering the names of cat breeds, so I think staring down at this mug every morning would actually help me remember the names of the ones featured on here.
Every single time I’ve seen this mug, I’ve wanted to get it. I love the idea of a cat paw as a mug, and I think the concept is executed phenomenally well when it comes to this particular mug. Maybe I should just buy it to finally get it off my wishlist.
Tell me this isn’t one of the most beautiful cat mugs you’ve ever seen. From those lovely rainbow colours to that heart handle, all the way down to that simple, minimalist, yet oh-so-lovely illustration. Adore this mug. The kind of thing I would’ve loved to have been gifted as a kid.
When my husband’s grandmother first introduced me to Simon’s Cat a few years back, I was obsessed! I can’t even count the hours I spent looking through old videos. If you love Simon’s Cat, this one’s perfect for you. Such an adorable little latte mug!
As far as “Cat Mom” mugs go, I think this is one of my favourites. It’s so stinkin’ cute! And certainly not as boring as most. Very nice floral pattern, and great colours. In my opinion, a total winner, whether you’re getting it for yourself or a cat mummy you know.
Probably the coolest looking “Cat Dad” & “Cat Mom” mug set I’ve seen yet. While browsing, was thinking of getting Thomas a “Cat Dad” mug, but after spotting this one, changed my mind cause this his/her set is so much better than any of the individual cat parent mugs floating around. Love it to bits! Especially thanks to that, “The Perfect Child has Four Legs” declaration on each of the mugs.
Gorgeous looking mug, in my opinion. If you’re one for mugs that aren’t a standard shape or colour, this one would be a lovely addition to a likely already diverse collection. Very pretty! Adore its charming looks.
Oh-so-cute mug and spoon set. Who wouldn’t obsess over that lovely little stir spoon? Perfect match to the coffee mug, and super convenient for the many of us who don’t have our coffee and/or tea black.
“Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr.” If you’re at all a fan of the show Big Bang Theory, you’re likely to know this song by heart thanks to the sheer number of times Sheldon and Penny sing it in the series. Love the illustration on this one, too. Super cute mug!
Yes, this mug is based off of an anime, but regardless of whether or not you have watched Hidamari, I think this mug is soooo pretty – seriously! I don’t see how anyone could disagree. One of the very few mugs on this list that I think really stands out from the rest. Such a gorgeous little thing, and perfect, in my opinion, for gifting. What cat person could think this mug isn’t lovely?
Simple declaration of love for your kitty. If I was looking to gift something to gift a cat-person I didn’t know the personal taste of too well, this would be it. Would be afraid to gift someone I didn’t know well something I thought was pretty but they might not; this minimalist, to the point mug solves that problem outright. Can’t go wrong with it.
The only Christmas themed mug I’ve put on this list – and only up here because it’s super cute. Reminds me of Christmas growing up. Can imagine sitting with it in December, full of hot chocolate, watching the glow of the lights on a Christmas tree. Great cup! So lovely!
“The Bonds we have are everlasting… If all else fails… pet the cat”: What a sweet message!! And a worthy reminder if hard times come and you’re sipping your morning coffee.
If you’re into mugs with lots of kitty face illustrations on them, this is one of my favourite ones to show you. Has a Halloween-y feel because of the black cat + gold circle combo. Really cool mug, I think!
Very accurate mug indeed, haha. I think this is one I most certainly would gift to my mother, as she’s constantly telling me how spoiled her cat is thanks to her. Definitely a cute mug, especially in terms of sentiment.
