Yournelo crude pottery animal plant pot

Rectangular planter with cat detail

There's something so cute and quirky about this cat planter. We adore its cheerful, friendly little cat face and its sweet pink nose and ears. It has a tail on the back. Made to look like crude pottery, it's suitable for use on balconies and patios but will need to be protected from hard frost. This pot measures just under 5-inches long.

It was a difficult call, but our overall staff pick is the Window Garden Oreo large kitty pot. It nabbed the top spot as we think this attractive pot would look brilliant in multiple settings, and you can expand your cat planter collection by investing in the other cute designs in the collection. 

We also love the Ten Thousand Villages large garden kitty planter. This gets extra kudos in our book as it's a Fair Trade product, made by craftspeople in Bangladesh. The pot's lovely markings and whitewashed terracotta finish look fab. 

If you're looking for a kitty-themed planter that doesn't scream "crazy cat lady," the Creature Cups Wander Pots animal ceramic succulent planters is worth considering. Its playful design hints at "cat," featuring a cleverly subtle reference you must look to see.
