My Kliban Cat Coffee Mugs

 kliban cat mugs2
Two posts in one day, but I just had to share. I spotted a box at the back of the spare bedroom closet, and decided to pull it out to see what treasure was hidden inside.
I was so thrilled to find some of my new, but never used Kliban cat mugs that I bought years ago. I bought a lot of these mugs at a gift shop, The Cat House, in South Padre Island, Texas. I don't think the store still exists. I also bought some of the mugs at the Lazy Lizard, Marathon, Florida Keys. I had been wondering where I had stored my Kliban cat mugs, and now to find the rest of them.
I had 4 of the sneaker cat mug, but I gifted one to a online friend that also loved Kliban cats.
I have 3 of the Love to eat them Mousie's guitar playing mugs, and doubles of the Computer cat. I know I have a fat cat mug..where it is at the moment..I don't have a clue. (found it and below is a photo. I had already put the other mugs back in their boxes.)

Whenever I travel, I look for Kliban Cat mugs. I have rugs, plush Kliban cats, vintage Cardboard/paper Christmas ornaments, note cards, mouse pads, books, computer screen saver, key chains, magnets, calendars, pens, t shirts, sweatshirts, rubber stamps, and a lot more of Kliban cat stuff. Kliban cat merchandise is hard to find now.

So cute! And don't you love it when you find a treasure you had forgotten about. :)

I don't suppose you'd consider selling the red sneaker cat mug? I broke mine yesterday!

I am Martha living in California. I had my mug, I would guess, for 30 years and I knocked it off my table last week! I wanted to cry! How much would you like for it? Contact mt at bellcats@ca.rr.com

Dont suppose anyone has the metal flat Kliban cat ornaments sold at spencers (1979ish). I am looking for a second set. High and low w/ no luck.

I don't have metal Kliban ornaments.

Back in the late '70s I was assisting my midwife friend on a birth. The lady had the mousies mug. After many hours of labor sitting, I started singing the "love to eat them mousies" ditty, in my best blues style. That really cracked up my friend. To this day, we still reminisce the memory. How I would love to give my friend of 40+ years one of these mugs. Would you consider selling one to me?

I noticed these are old comments - did you decide to sell any? I am desperate to find a couple my own self! I LOVE these cats!
