Little did Faline Jones know all those years ago on the farm with her swarm of cats, that someday her love of crafts would catapult her into a Village with a cat as mascot!
Hi there, welcome to The Cat’s Meow Village. We're a small company birthed in Wooster, Ohio in 1982 from one simple wooden house Faline cutout on her grandfather’s saw in the loft of the hog barn.
It’s 35 years later, and Jones with her “crew” continue to craft "little wooden buildings" of local, national, and international landmarks that spark memories and kindle smiles on the faces of “real life adventurers” like you.
We help you keep memories alive with unique keepsakes of the places and times you love.
Celebrate your favorite places by including our 3/4" thick wooden keepsakes in your home décor. A few favorite spots where Cat’s Meows like to reside are: perched on top of your window and door trim, tucked into your bookshelves, or sprawled across your fireplace mantle. Our Black Cat Daily Blog includes many stories on how “Cat’s Meowers” decorate with the Village in their homes.
And what's with the cat?
Faline mixed her love of cats into the village by adding a black cat mascot to every design. This trademark cat, in either a laying or sitting position, is fondly known as Casper (a tribute to Faline's cat shown here). Keep your eyes open for Casper as you explore our website! And if you want to hear Casper's side of the story + more about Faline...
We believe in supporting our community and the ones that surround our Village, both physically and virtually. Faline designs trees for her Charity Grove that don colored Awareness Ribbons. The sales from these trees support various organizations and create awareness of the battles being fought by our neighbors everywhere. Faline has also designated the sales of various Cat’s Meow designs to support specific causes. Check out our Rescue Cats, Map Of Africa, and Bible Stories currently supporting causes close to Faline’s heart.
If you could pick just one?
With so many famous and not-so-famous landmarks around the globe, which one would you say brings a smile and warm memories to mind? Exactly…that’s what we thought…there's too many to pick just one.
And our Village reflects the larger world, too, so it can be a little confusing when you first start exploring. Let’s try to break it down neighborhood by neighborhood. Paw through our Search For The PURRfect Cat's Meow magazine to take some of the mystery out of our Village.
We’ve saved the best for last! It’s our CATillac!

"My wife's birthday party was last night and she saw the custom Cat's Meow for the first time. It was a hit, bringing tears (of joy) to her eyes! All remarked on how great the house looked and were amazed and the colors matched! Thanks you for all your efforts and getting the house to me in time for her birthday!" ~Gary L.
We do even more than personal homes, though! Our Cat's Meows make great fundraisers and commemoratives for:
Today, our workshop with a crew of 16 enjoy "traveling the world" as we handcraft and ship Cat's Meow replicas of landmarks around the globe. Now what could be better than traveling the world each day while we work?
