16 Ways to Catify Your Holiday Yard Decorations

Of all the pre-Christmas weekends, this one and next one are the busiest for putting up yard decorations. But have YOU incorporated CATS into your holiday yard decor?

If not, here are a few items guaranteed to tell everyone who drives by that Cat Rule/Dogs Drool during the holiday season. Most are less than $20; only one item is over $30. (Prices subject to change.)

Motion Sensor Santa Cat Lawn Greeter

I ordered this one. It has a motion detector built in, and the cat yowls when anyone comes near.



We have a ton of walkers in our neighborhood–most with dogs in tow–and my inner 12-year-old delights at the thought of them walking by and hearing/seeing an orange tabby yowl at them, wishing them Happy Holidays in felinese. Then them wondering why every single day that same cat is in the same spot, givin’ ’em the stinkeye.

Not to mention how the dogs would react.

With that said, it will also be fun to bring indoors and see what my cats would do!

Cute, right? (about $18)

Christmas Cat Yard Sign

This colorful cat yard sign is about $20:


The design is also available as a mailbox cover for about $37:


Stack o’ cats Christmas Lawn Decoration

The next four items are from the same manufacturer, sturdily made of weather-resistant metal that will last for years to come. This first one is a whole stack o’ merry Christmas cats:


This iron cat sculpture will only set you back about $15.

Pair of Cats Christmas Lawn Decoration


This pair can turn you on when the pom poms at the tips of their Santa hats light up. They’re just under $23.

If you don’t want to spring for the pair above, you can opt to buy them individually. The Tuxie costs a whisker over $13; the tabby is about $5 more (you’re right, that makes no sense). They’re identical to the pair above and they light up.

Four Seasons Cat Lawn Ornament


Of the bunch, this is probably the best value: you can keep it up year round. In addition to the Santa trappings, it comes with kyoot owtfits for Spring, July 4th, and Autumn. (Just under $21)

Cat Snow/Temp Gauge


In California we don’t have the need for a snow measurer, but you might. This orange tabby purrvides the temp and snow level. (Under $24)

Cat Garden Flags

If, like my next door neighbor, you fly a garden flag for major holidays, you might like one of these.

This first one features a happy orange and white tabby who’s eating snowflakes. The small version of this flag is about $11; the large is just under $20.

This Christmas garden flag features a ginger and a cow cat. About $13.


We not leaving out Siamese lovers! This Christmas garden flag is about $15.

Welcome holiday visitors with black Santa cats (about $11):
