Cats are more popular than dogs. That is a fact, at least in North America.
And if you’re here to argue otherwise, you should know that there are about 73 million domesticated cats in the continent with 30% of households owning at least one as a pet. Dogs, on the other hand, are about 63 million in population.
If you think those figures are amazing, it’s only a fraction compared to the 500 million domesticated cats all over the world, outnumbering dogs three to one.
A Little History
It’s not surprising to know the love that people have for their feline pets. In fact, cats were revered like gods in Ancient Egypt long before they were common household pets. However, there was a time when these beautiful creatures weren’t as beloved as they are now.
In fact, during the Spanish Inquisition, there was a mass killing of cats; all because Pope Innocent VIII deemed them evil. The great decline of cats caused an immense rat infestation which only furthered the ravaging of the Black Death.
In the Middle Ages, Europeans would cast a great number of cats on St. John’s Day and even tossed them from church towers during holy days. Thankfully, they managed to survive all that and are now receiving the love that they deserve.
Now, if you want to express your undying admiration for this awesome animal, there are lots of things you can do and one of them is by incorporating cats into your home décor.
Cats are adorable creatures and it’s only right that you make use of this quality when looking for cat-themed home décor. Here are 11 of the cutest cat-themed home décor accessories you can start in no particular order.

Sleeping Cat Rug
This handmade sleeping cat rug is made of polyester and exhibits one of the most common habits of domesticated cats.
Cats love to sleep. In fact, they could sleep up to 16 hours per day and older cats can spend 20 hours sleeping.
The reason for this is their genes. Cats are predatory hunters and mostly go about their activities at night. To conserve energy for their nightly excursions, cats mostly sleep during the day either deeply or lightly as they are also known to doze off or nap but still position themselves in a way that they’d still be ready to sprint or attack.
You know a cat is dozing when its eyes are closed but its ears still twitch from time to time, reacting to the sounds around it.
As for the rug, it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, durable, and comes with anti-slip qualities which make it safer to have. Word of caution, though, your cat might claim this rug for itself.
You can get this sleeping cat rug for $28.99.
