September 23, 2021 Presents "What the Crap's a Cat Bag?" Starring Ron Swanson as Tough but Loveable Smokey, the Gruff Cat Detective.

So, What the Crap’s a Cat Bag?

Inquisitive Carl’s Got Your Answer to the Question of the Day

According to Wikipedia, the relationship between cats and bags in retail transactions have had a long and somewhat scurrilous past. Specifically, in relation to the “Pig in a Poke” article:

The scheme entailed the sale of a suckling pig in a poke. The bag, sold unopened, would actually contain a cat or dog, which was substantially less valuable as a source of meat. The French idiom acheter (un) chat en poche (to buy a cat in a bag) refers to an actual sale of this nature, as do many European equivalents, while the English expression refers to the appearance of the trick.


I’m not the first person to tell you to not believe everything you read on the internet. I will be the first person to tell you that, starting today, our Cat Bags:

(a) Do not contain any cats, dogs, or pigs

(b) Are not meant to convey the idea that they contain these things or that you will be getting any sources of any nourishment from your purchase

(c) Tote bags are 10% off! Cat Totes Are Now 10% Off!

So what is a cat bag then? Well, some would be so crass as to describe them as a bag with a cat face on it. We here at consider ourselves Sac de Chat Connaisseurs (which is French for Cat Bag Connoisseurs) and so we’ve chosen this time and place to illuminate you on the wonders of these stuff-holding kitties.

They come in four (count em, 4) different sizes:

Oliver the Cat Tote Percy the Cat Tote
Sam the Cat Tote Smokey the Cat Tote

The Tote Bag (roughly 16 in. by 14 in.) is our largest size. The woven cotton strap measures 27.5 in. x 1.5 in. It comes in styles: Oliver, Percy, Sam, and Smokey.

Bentley the Cat Cross Bag Max the Cat Cross Bag
Scooter the Cat Cross Bag Carl the Cat Cross Bag

The Cross Body Bag (9 in. x 8 in. x 2 in.) is wider than the other bags and offers different face styles. It has a lengthy adjustable (32 in. – 50 in.) strap that can either fit cross-body or be shortened to fit under your arm. The Cross Body Bag can have the following styles: Bentley, Max, Scooter, and Carl.

Oliver the Cat Chain Bag Percy the Cat Chain Bag
Sam the Cat Chain Bag Smokey the Cat Chain Bag

The Chain Bag (about 9 in. x 9 in.) is similar in size to the Cross Body bag but is made from flexible cloth. It comes with a chain (49 in.) instead of the leather strap that comes with the Cross Body bag. Like the Tote, the Chain Bag comes in styles: Oliver, Percy, Sam, and Smokey.

Oliver the Cat Coin Bag Oscar the Cat Coin Bag Percy the Cat Coin Bag
Sam the Cat Coin Bag Smokey the Cat Coin Bag

The Coin Bag (5 in. x 5 in.) is small and can fit in a purse (or another cat bag, making it a rare Russian nesting cat bag). It can hold whatever your heart desires, as long as whatever your heart desires is smaller than 5 square inches and about half an inch wide. The Coin Bag comes in styles: Oliver, Oscar, Percy, Sam, and Smokey.
