Our 15 Favorite Small Shops on Etsy [Small Shop, Big Impact]
Keep your ball of string and your flimsy feather on a stick because Stark Raving Cat is here to change the game for cat toys.
An Etsy seller since 2014 shop owner and creator Kate Heyhoe finds her inspiration from products that don’t look like cat toys.
“I focus on colorful and eye-catching designs that no one else makes. Especially intricate embroidered ones, like our Lotus and our Magic Mushroom,” shared Kate.
We were lucky enough to get a little teaser on what customers can expect to hit the shop this Christmas: Fish-shaped kitty stockings, catnip peppermint candies, colorful mini-robots, gingerbread and snowmen gift sets.
Consider us teased.
A visit to the shop just to read the reviews and check out the customer submitted photos of their cats with the Original Catnip Joints is worth it. Come for weed humor, stay for the quality cat toys you totally won’t mind laying around your house.

2015 and 2017 Gift Guides
Catnip is the #1 gift of choice of kitties everywhere and our #1 choice for potent ‘nip with explosive cuteness is combo of catnip, toy, charm and stocking is Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints from StarkRavingcat.com They are famous for their catnip “joints” but if that’s too risque, they have catnip candy canes and other holiday and hostess gifts. The products are handmade in Texas and they ship fast worldwide. The scent is irresistible (our Odin went a bit berserk) so store the nip products in a safe place when not in use.
Nippy Goodness Can Be Yours!, a review of Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints.
This limited edition stocking is designed for hanging on the Christmas tree or mantle. A red-and-white pair of catnip joints (topped with tiny Santa hats) peeks out from a traditional red stocking. From the ribbon on the front hangs a silver-tone cat-and-mouse charm. It’s perfect to add to your cat’s collar, a key chain or a necklace to wear it as a pendant.
It is evident from our photos that we liked this product. The nip is so potent it permeated the stocking and it’s hang tag. Mauricio wouldn’t let go of these items or stop licking the tag. Lily Olivia liked the easy-to-hold joints the best. We think this would be a great gift for all nip-loving kitties. Stark Raving Cat’s Santa’s Rocking Stocking Catnip Joints also would be a great present…(full review)

Chill Catnip Joints For Chill Cats
by Jeremy Glass
Aren’t cats the best?! They’re happy, loyal, quick-witted, and cute. Yes, these squishy little discount-puppies are, indeed, man’s second-best friend. To ease the pain of buying a cat only because they were out of dogs, a nice company out in Texas called Stark Raving Cat—whose only fault is loving felines too much—has created Catnip Joints to chill your cat out and let you reevaluate your choices in domestic animals…
…Though I’m pretty sure Catnip Joints are the inverse of marijuana joints. In the sense that all the cats I’ve ever seen lie around and sleep all day, pausing only to look at you with complete disinterest and excruciatingly slow blinks, until they get their paws on some catnip. Then they’re darting and rolling and hopping all over the living room like an epileptic monkey on hot coals…

“Kiffende Katzen” – Handgerollte Catnip-Joints für Katzen
Was für den Kiffer das Marihuana, ist für Katzen die “Katzenminze”. Laut Wikipedia ist das genetisch bedingt und bei nur rund 50 Prozent der Schmuse-Tiger ausgeprägt. Zudem ist auch noch unklar, warum geschlechtsreife Katzen überhaupt auf den Geruch so abfahren. Vielleicht ist es ja wie bei den Menschen, die einen finden das Kiffen toll, andere fahren darauf überhaupt nicht ab.
Wie auch immer: Ein amerikanischer Anbieter kam nun auf die Idee die Katzenminze in Joint-Form zu rollen und zu verkaufen…
