Cat Coloring Books Make Purrfect Christmas Gifts (with Giveaway!)

When I was a little girl I was obsessed with coloring. Any visitor to my house, friend or family member, had to color with me. It was a rule.

One Christmas I received a 'Twas the Night Before Christmas coloring book from my aunt and uncle. It was so big I could only work on it at the dining room table. Each year in December I worked on one page and my mom dated it when I was done. I still have that book too...a cherished piece of my childhood filled with so many memories.


Coloring is cool again and more popular than ever...for adults! It's finally being recognized as the amazing stress reliever it is, as well as a creative outlet for children of all ages.

The best news? Cat coloring books are among the most popular, and they make pawsome Christmas gifts! Here's some of our favorite cat coloring books of the year...and there's a giveaway at the end too!



To me, there's nothing much cuter than cats paired with food. (Or cats named after food, hence Mudpie and Truffles.) This book is filled with hysterical images of cats cavorting in the kitchen and pretending to be a variety of gourmet foods: tucked inside a taco, popping out of a pie, chilling with an ice cream cone on their head. It's impossible to thumb through this book without grinning from ear to ear...and feeling a little hungry!



This is no ordinary coloring book. It also features the true "tail" of Instagram's @smokeyfromtheblock and the experiences of author Laura King as a feral cat caretaker in Harlem. The illustrations are beautiful, the story is heartwarming, and the TNR message so incredibly important. The NYC Feral Cat Initiative, a program of the Mayor's Alliance for New York City's Animals will receive a portion of the profits. I love this book so much that I bought a second copy for my Secret Paws this Christmas!


While this book seems to be geared towards children, I think the pictures are intricate enough for adults to enjoy too. Plus it's the perfect size for stocking stuffers and to keep in your purse or glove compartment.



The purrfect book for anyone who loves cats and Christmas. These kitties are helping Santa get ready for the big day!



Each illustration in this book depicts house cats engaging in a mixture of human-like behavior such as enjoying ice cream cones, chilling in front of "Catflix", playing video games and having a pizza party, as well as kitty activities such as playing in laundry baskets, hanging with their human and napping anywhere and everywhere. Many of the drawings are accompanied by popular cat quotes from Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway and Garfield creator Jim Davis. Embrace your inner slug...these lazy cats are!



Oskar may be blind, but that doesn't prevent him from going on giant epic adventures with his brother Klaus! A portion of each sale goes directly to Milo's Sanctuary, Inc. for special needs cats.




World-travelling adventure cat KeeKee the calico stars in her very own coloring book, featuring scenes from her award-winning book series.

    1. I commented before reading the rafflecopter! I have several coloring books, but none devoted to cats. I have one from the Great British Baking Show, so I have some food. I also have Doctor Who and some by local artists.
