Hungarians & Cats

If you come to Hungary from another country, you might notice that in most souvenir shops you will find something cat-related. Here, in Intuita Shop, we also have a lot of items with cats. So no wonder many customers ask me, why are there so many cat souvenirs?

At first I didn’t know what to say to that because I mean, we all love animals, don’t we? And since elephants, horses or giraffes might not fit in your backyard, chances are you’ll end up adopting a cat or a dog. ๐Ÿ™‚

But then, after frequently getting this question, I started to investigate a little and discovered that apparently, according to the European Pet Food Federation (FEDIAF) the cat population in Hungary was measured at approximately 2.3 million in 2017! We are supposedly the #1 cat owning country in Europe!

So it’s quite understandable that since there are apparently 2.3 million cats registered (and there are loads, especially in the country side that aren’t in the system) that cats inspire us when it comes to the arts as well.

In our offline stores we also have mugs, sugar holders, tissue holders, phone cases, necklaces and other fun things with cats but since they are handmade and are one-of-a-kind, usually they are taken before we could photograph them and upload them to our webshop but we are working on it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Which one is your favourite? Are there many cats in your country/neighbourhood? Let me know in the comments!

Have a lovely week,
