You all know that I love our dog Burger, but you probably don’t know that I was originally a cat person. From my love of tigers as a kid to taking care of my cat Casper through high school, I’ve always had a preference for felines… until I met Sherry and her cat allergies (which resulted in a compromise of sorts: a cat-sized dog).
But there’s good news. I’ve FINALLY convinced Sherry to let me bring a cat home. And she doesn’t even have to worry about getting itchy eyes or a scratchy throat because the kitties we’ve got our eyes on are these awesome cat lampshades from Lamps Plus. We just need your help when it comes to picking the perfect illuminated furball.
So which do you think is the purr-fect choice? The Sleeping Kittens Pendant, the Laundry Cat Table Lamp or the Cat & Butterfly Swag Chandelier? It’s a painfully hard decision because they’re all so amazing. If only we had room for the whole litter! Or should we just employ the trusted eeny-meeny-miny-meow technique?
Oh, and by the way, we’re totally kidding. Happy April Fool’s Day!

Haha! You two made a fool of me! :)
Oh my. You had me before I scrolled down.
Those are hideous!
Wow. You had me scared for a minute there (forgot it’s April Fools Day). I thought you’d lost it!
Thank God! I started thinking I was super design-challenged for not liking this. Whew!
Ok, I admit it, you had me for a second. My first thought was “man, they usually have such good taste!” LOL
OMG! You totallly had me going there for a second! I thought, “there is no way Sherry him have a lamp shade like that”! Thanks for the laugh this morning :-)
How funny! I was going to comment and say, “NONE, THEY’RE ALL AWFUL!!!!!”
Very clever, you two.
Nicole Greene says
THANK goodness b/c they are ALL awful. Are you really getting a cat?
Glad you’re enjoying our little bit of fun this April 1st. There’s just so much, um, questionable design out there we couldn’t resist.
And Nicole, no cat for us. Sherry truly does have cat allergies so, unless we got one of those fancy hypoallergenic breeds, I’d be torturing her by bringing a cat home. So now I just consider myself a cat person wannabe.
You may be joking, but oh my goodness…those lamps really exist! Yikes!
We all know if you wanted a cat in the house all you’d have to do is find one made out of white ceramic ;)
Happy April Fool’s Day!
My hubby already tried to get me this morning, so I knew EXACTLY what you were up to :)
The really funny part is that website will still be there on April 2nd :P
LOL! Happy April 1st!
Yikes! You had me there for a minute. Good one.
Haha, sometimes I skim too fast and I skipped over your line at the end. Still, I thought there would be something about this being an April Fools Day here in the comments. Still in the first paragraph, before I saw the terrible lamp shades, I thought you might be getting a kitty and I was soooooooo excited for the pics. If its any consolation, my bf is allergic to cats but he seems to have adjusted to mine.
HAHA!! I knew it was April Fool’s Day but I wasn’t thinking anything about it. You fooled me. I was thinking, “um these are hidious.”
hahaha man I totally got fooled. I stopped merrily chewing my bagel. You guys are awesome!
Those lamps are hideous! Thank goodness it’s April 1. What is it with you guys and your cats? My husband is a cat person too. I can’t stand them. I’m allergic, but I also feel like they invade my personal space way too much…
That was funny! THANKS!!
omg, i just fooled my co-workers…then i come on here and get fooled myself. =P you guys are good!
You really had me questioning your sanity. Glad it was an April Fool’s Day joke!!
Ha! And was thinking “oh my goodness, and I really liked this couple’s taste until today” too funny!
OMG, I thought you guys were serious for a second before I remembered what day it was. I was going to have you committed! And don’t get a real cat either…so not as cute as puppies!
Summer Smith says
oh thank gawd! You really had me frightened!
Oh my goodness, I didn’t even remember it was April Fools Day until I read that and as I was reading I just kept squenching my forehead more and more because I was so stumped and kind of second guessing decor taste. I mean if you guys liked it, surely I was supposed to, right? But yet I hated them! And then there was the joke. Good one!
Oh my goodness! You really had me for a minute! I kept telling myself that this had to be a joke!!! Thank goodness it was!
life a colorful life says
high-larious. I seriously thought you had lost your decorating minds! Whew. Glad to know that things are all right. Those things are hideous.
You got us, I was thinking, “Finally something I HATE”!
Carrie M. says
You guys are too funny! Thanks for the April Fools laugh.
Courtney D says
Yikes! And to think there are enough takers on something like this to warrant VARIETY!
Wow, you got me! I laughed out loud in my office!
Great April Fools! My boyfriend has cat allergies which is a bummer because I love those furballs!
Why don’t you guys just get a white ceramic cat to match your ceramic dog?
Those are hideous – truly cringe-worthy!
haha you got me! that was too funny!
You got me!!! I was thinking “okay, they usually have awesome taste, but this is just awful!!” Thanks for the laugh!
I agree. I was going to say…None. They’re really ugly. : )
First prank of the day. Thanks!
bah haha!! Thanks for the laugh!
I was scared there for a minute
WOW! I am so glad you guys are kidding! haha
I was like “are you kidding me?” … “If I secretly liked cat lamps I would keep it secret” etc. etc. HA HAAAAA You’re funny!
Oh, my! I’m so GLAD you were kidding! lol:)
Wow, I’m really surprised that everyone thinks they are so awful. Come on people, everyone has different tastes. I love them ALL. I was really hoping that you were doing a give-away with Lamps Plus, you know, where you comment with your favorite, which by the way is the table lamp.
Ha! Just kidding…they ARE awful.
Oh man, I am so glad that was a joke. I was starting to think you guys lost your mind!
oh my word you totally got me!!!
I’m with the rest, I would have spoken up and told you how awful those are!
So, no plans to replace the drum shade on your ceiling fan with the beauty on the left??
Ha, you definitely had me for a minute! I was sitting her thinking, “No way!!”, but at the same time, I was thinking, “Who knows…maybe they can pull it off?”
Good one! I feel sort of bad for the people that really bought one of those lamps! I LOVE cats but seriously???
So glad this is a joke. :)

Ooooh man. I was seriously questioning your choice. A little scary.
