Marjorie Sarnat recently published another great coloring book with cats and kittens, this time with a Christmas theme. The 31 designs are printed single-sided and are complex enough to keep you coloring for a while.

See my full review here.


2. Meow as Fluff: The Special Cats Coloring Book

This fun and informative coloring book includes designs of, and stories about, 20 special cats. Examples include the story of Donny, an incredible blind tabby cat with cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) who is a therapy cat for people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia; Frankie, a cute tabby and white cat with four ears who stole his foster mom’s heart while recovering from surgery to remove one of his eyes; and Cricket, a snowshoe cat who was born with one eye and was at risk of being put to sleep until his wonderful family saved his life.

3. Pusheen Coloring Book

The Internet’s favorite chubby, tubby tabby is back in a purr-fectly cute coloring book featuring adorable kitty drawings that will charm cat lovers and coloring book fans everywhere! The 94 designs range from easy to medium, but nothing too intricate. Printed on both sides of the paper.

4. Life is Better With a Cat…or Two

This coloring book is full of 20 fun, cute and downright adorable cat patterns.

Author and illustrator Emily Cromwell’s illustrations have a hand drawn feeling that is cute, happy, and beautiful.

5. Pocket Coloring Book – Kitty Cats

The 6 designs in this adorable printable coloring book are so unique! If you are unsure about delivery times, or need a last-minute gift, downloads are practically instant. And because it is a download, your giftee will be able to color each one as many times as they like! Don’t forget to share this post with them so they can maximize their enjoyment!

6. A Million Christmas Cats: Festive Felines to Color

The definition of “whimsical,” the 37 joyful scenes in this coloring book are both winter and Christmas. You will find cats riding reindeer, ice fishing, sledding and gathered around a fire place, among others. Any cat-loving colorist will appreciate the detailed but not-too-difficult illustrations. Some backgrounds are black, some white. The book is on the smaller side – 9″ x 7″, and printed on both sides of the pages, so I wouldn’t recommend alcohol-based markers.

7. Teacup Kittens

If your cat-loving giftee is ready for cuteness overload, this will be a perfect present! Illustrator Kayomi Harai presents dozens of delightful teacup kitties to color, each snug in her own pretty teacup, plus lots of other cute kitten images!

And just like the Creative Haven line from Dover Publications, you can always count on quality from Fox Chapel, the book’s publisher: thick paper, easy perforations, coloring tips (how to color eyes!) and inspirational colored-in examples.

8. Cat Coloring Therapy– Korean

If you are looking for a gift for a cat-loving colorist fascinated with the far east (like me!), this 68-page coloring book would make an awesome present. This is for the more experienced colorist and is super-high-quality. You will find scenes with cats eating at a restaurant, checking out the library, and even shopping, among others.

9. Creative Cats

No list of coloring books for cat lovers would be complete without this one from Marjorie Sarnat. The more than 30 single-sided illustrations feature felines surrounded by and full of motifs such as hearts, flowers, filigree, paisleys, etc. The detail means that the book is better-suited for more experienced colorists.

10. Paint by Sticker: Cats

How about introducing your colorist to something a bit different? Stickering can be just as calming as coloring, and this book is all about cats. The book includes instructions (so easy!) and the pages are perforated. Although there are quite a few stickering books out there, I believe Workman Publishing has the best.


+1. Color Your Own Cat Mask

I could not resist this one: a sturdy, effective cloth mask with a cat’s grin that you color yourself! How appropriate for “these times.” It comes with a set of 8 fabric markers, but if you need more colors, try these.
