Am I cat lady or a bag lady? I don't know that I necessarily like either of those labels but I love cats and bags so that must mean I'm a cat and bag lady - Yikes! Don’t tell anyone.
I have found the most adorable selection of cat purses and bags, that is handbags, purses, pocketbooks or whatever you like to call them but they have one thing in common a kitty cat theme.
As well as the design, which of course is important, the practical features, such as size of the purse will be a personal choice. I have always preferred the longer wallets but for me it is the interior that needs to meet certain criteria.
This is what I look for and I'm a seasoned and fussy wallet buyer.
A separate section inside for coins.This section may be a separate compartment inside the wallet but it can also be a separate section on the outside of the wallet. My main consideration is the need to be able to access it quickly when needed, so the speed test comes into play here.
Are there enough spaces for credit or loyalty cards but not so many spaces that the purse becomes heavy and overloaded with cards? I have to train myself to leave some at home. Update: Use an app on yor phone to store loyalty cards - brilliant idea.
The card spaces need to be large enough that I not trying to wrestle them from a too tight space. This is seriously annoying when in a hurry.
The design is super important. This is a purchase I expect to last some time.
These wallets featuring cats are all just too cute.
Every time I scroll through this list, I choose a different wallet.
I am addicted to tote bags. Every time I come back from a holiday I can add at least one more to the pile - oops I mean - collection.
They just have a multitude of uses. Here are some ways I use totes.
Shopping - All types of shopping. I always have a lightweight nylon bag in my purse for unexpected shopping purchases. They are super handy for those unexpected times when a shopping bag is needed. As stores often do not provide shopping bags and sometimes I forget to take my own, one of these small bags has been a lifesaver on many occasions. They do hold a surprising amount of stuff whether that be groceries or odds and ends.
Totes for my laptop and assorted pens and notebooks from one place to another.
The movies - I often take a tote with a wrap, it gets cold in the movies.
Traveling - This is serious tote stuff and the tote does have to have pockets and a zippered top for security and so that things won’t fall out when the tote may be tucked away with other luggage
Studying - an essential tote with room for computer or tablet plus phone, notepads, pens and other essential stuff.
Storing Stuff - I have a tote or two used for yarn storage.
Spare Totes - Yes that’s right. There is always a need for spare totes and when you search through the pile you will know when you have the exact one, the one that is perfect for that need on that day - could be a business looking tote or a fun tote.
Going anywhere for the day - You have to have all bases covered, a wrap, drink bottle, makeup, snacks, a hat, sunscreen and so on.
Now I have convinced myself that I have a tote problem but it’s a good problem to have, so I’m not complaining. Give a tote to someone you love and who loves cats.

What is cute about this tote is that it has two sets of handles a short set and a longer set to go over the shoulders.
If your hands are full it is essential to be able to hoist the bag over your shoulder.
Another great feature of this bag is that it stands up by itself because it has a gusset which makes it easier to pack.
I used to have the collapsible bag problem when holding a baby on my hip. I no longer have that issue (baby on hip) but it's still a practical and useful feature.
Still can't find what you are looking for? That's okay. I understand the need to look at many cat purses and bags before buying.

Hello! I am Rebecca Parker, the content editor of this site. This is my kitty cat in his heyday. He now has diabetes which means twice daily injections and much to his dismay, no more snacking in between meals. This gorgeous and very loved kitty is sadly now deceased, old age caught up with him.
