13 Distinct Ways To Arrange Your Cat's Meows @ Home

Let's tour a few neighbors' homes to see how they style their Cat's Meows.

(The following thirteen examples are "real-life photos" entered into a #catsmeowpostapalooza Facebook and Instagram Bragging Rights Event)


Beach-Boardwalk theme

As a child, my parents, sister, and I always went to Ocean City, Maryland.  As a teenager with a friend and her family,  I also went to Fenwick Island, Delaware.  As an adult, because my parents moved to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, that location became my vacation place with my husband.  I have purchased many Cat’s Meow items for those areas and on two (2) ledges at the landing leading upstairs, I display all of them.  I created a boardwalk with sand underneath and have accessorized all with seagulls and parking meters.  At Christmas, I embellish the whole thing with lamp post lights and strands of miniature colored lights on the boardwalk.  As my mother passed away at Beebe Hospital in Lewes, DE, I also purchased the Cat’s Meow Beebe Hospital and it is also displayed on the ledge. ~Caryl Z.



New use for Shadowbox

Amanda P. shows off her Cat's Meows in a unique shadowbox hung in an alcove in her home.



Stack a few Ladders

Elaine B. stacked 2 Ladder Shelves on the wall, then filled them with her favorite Cat's Meows.



Fill in nooks and crannies

Jennifer W. adds Cat's Meows into her themed settings around her home. She's added a Purrsonalized Dog House and custom-made Greyhound keepsake to her Greyhound ledge. And our Fingerlakes Map fits right in with Jennifer's wine memorabilia.



Find purrpose for empty ledges

Karen S. found the purrfect ledge in her home to perch her Cat's Meows. The white wall really brings focus to her keepsakes. A glance up as she walks through the doorway brings back memories of trips she's taken over the years.



Snowy shelves bring the "outside" inside

Kristy H. hung 2 of our Snowy Night Ledge Shelves side by side to show off her glittery It's A Wonderful Life Collection. We love how she added the wooden sign to top off her collection.



Room to room Cat's Meow tour

Margaret F. has tucked in Cat's Meows into rooms all over her home. A fireplace mantel is an easy spot to build a Village.

And her lighthouse setup is unique with its picket fence and seashells to complete the theme.



Decorate the undecorated spots

Mary H. shows how a simple hallway can come to life with Cat's Meows perched on the trim above her doorways.

(Using a little sticky tac can help secure them from falling when a door is closed)

A skinny hallway shelf is a great location for more Cat's Meows. 



Floor-to-ceiling style

Robin B. uses molding painted the same color as her wall to create a floor-to-ceiling Village in her hallway.



Use unlikely furniture

Traci W. shows how a piano makes a great spot for Cat's Meows.



More ledge decorating

Debbie S. has Cat's Meows flowing from room to room in her log home. A ledge just out of reach is easy to keep all her collection within eyesight, but out of the daily clutter of living.



Snowy themed display on prominent wall

Gail R. shows how 3 Snowy Night Shelves filled with the North Pole Village Collection fills in the space above her couch.



From bookshelves to ledges

Jane C. added her Cat's Meows to the ledge above her double doors and tucks them into her bookshelves to add interest.

Hello everyone, this is my first comment on this site; and I'm excited that I've found it. My collection of village pieces is older than most people's prize possessions, but I still love then. I have various collections, many too many to mention here. It has been quite some time since making any additions to my collection, but this website has teased me to get interested again. I found what possibly will become my "first" new piece - a quilt barn in Franklin, MA - which is not too far from where I used to live. Always looking for things representing "home". Thanks for being there when I need a pick-me-up. Harriet
We collect Cats Meows from every state we’ve visited in our fifth wheel. I’m looking for a cute way to display them in our old farmhouse. Any suggestions?
Oooo, farmhouses usually have nice big trim around doors and windows! That's a perfect spot to perch your prized Cat's Meows. Make sure to add a little "sticky tac" to the bottom or back of each Cat's Meow to help secure it!
My husband, deceased, loved the Civil War era. I have placed all the Civil War buildings that I own on the doorway ledges in his den.
I have many of my Cats Meows over the doorways and closet doors in all the rooms in my house. I like the snowy night shelves for the It's a Wonderful Life collection, which I got for my husband. I'll have to get a couple of those! Like some of the other ideas, too. Thanks for sharing.
