6 Back-to-School Items Guaranteed to Make You Teacher’s Pet

Back-to-School time is steeped in the excitement of a brand new school year, fresh PeeChee folders and a new Barbie Lunchbox. Throw in turning leaves, the scent of Crayolas, and a chill to the morning air and…. well, I get lost in reverie.

And of course, it always makes me think of one of my favorite exchanges in “You’ve Got Mail”: the bouquet-of-sharpened-pencils scene:

You can get in on the excitement of Back to School shopping even if you have no school to go back to. Check out these PURRfect Back to School supplies. (Click photo or links for additional product/purchase info. Prices are subject to change.)

Colorful Kitty Pencil Case

If I’d had this pencil case back during my school days in the Pleistocene Era, I would have flunked, having spent entirely too much time staring at the colorful cat collection, then picking a pencil from within to draw cats. Come to think of it, that one pencil case could have changed the entire course of my existence. No more school, just cats. If only I’d known then….


Embroidered Burlap Pencil Case

This texturey burlap pencil case features a cute kitty clowder embroidered in a black thread that provides a silky counterpoint to the rough fabric.

Cat Washi Tape

Back in the day, we’d make book covers out of shopping bags and then decorate the heck out of them (usually along the lines of Cream’s 1967 album cover for Disraeli Gears). What I could have done with a dozen rolls of washi tape!

When the electricity goes out, how will you take notes in class at Cat Scouts University? How about with this official Cat Scouts Notebook! Covered in high quality vegan-friendly PU Leather, it will last the entire school year.

  1. We love it all. We are quite sure Mau would like that backpack and Mom the Hello Kitty Pouch. We’ll have to ask our dad if he can give us some green papers to go shopping. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
