Deborah Barnes, creator, designer, author, and owner of Zee & Zoey’s Cat Creations has been a cat lover her whole life. She’s best known for her love of leopard print and penchant for wearing cat ears (some might even claim Deborah is part cat!). She started off writing books about cats, then blogging about them, to then becoming an advocate and voice for cat-welfare issues. She took that love and passion and decided to pursue her creative side by designing a variety of quirky, sweet, whimsical, and witty pieces that epitomize the essence of anything cat. From high-quality, one-of-a-kind T-shirts, to coffee mugs,magnets, mouse pads, handmade cat ears and more, every item in Zee & Zoey’sCat Creations shop is lovingly created for the inner-feline in you!
