How to Spot Custom Cat's Meows when you're shopping in retail stores

Custom Cats Meows are popping up everywhere...from tourist retail stores to museum gift shops to visitor centers to national park stores..and more!

Here's a quick way to spot a local Cats Meow custom design. 



When you see the following abbreviations, this lets you know that's the only place you can purchase it.

Turn the Cats Meow over and look in the bottom left corner. 


If you see any product number that starts with:




You can 99.9% know that's the only place you'll find it. 

This means...pounce immediately to the checkout with your treasure in hand!


All other item numbers, such as:



or a combination of numbers

These are designed for national sales, meaning you'll find them on our website, plus multiple store locations.




How do these custom pieces come to life? 

We partner with gift shops to create Cats Meows in one of two ways:

1) We design their local replicas as customs available only at their store.

2) They give input to our design and agree to it being offered for sale on our website plus their store (and other stores who may stock it).


Do you have an authentic custom Cats Meow? 

Pop over to Instagram or Facebook and tell us which one you have.



We handcraft all of our keepsakes in Ohio from ¾” thick wood with detailed front designs and written descriptions on the back. They can be set neatly on a shelf, desk, or narrow ledge such as wainscoting, window, or door trim.

Group them with other Cat’s Meows to create your own little Village!

Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, sitting or reclining within the design. He's the sign of an authentic Cat's Meow souvenir replica.
