Illustrator Creates “Purrfect” Deck of Playing Cards That Features Cat Illustrations

Illustrator Chet Phillips recently presented a deck of playing cards that is “purrfect” for your family nights, picnics, get-togethers, and more. Why? Because it features cat illustrations.

The Cat’s Meow playing card deck comes with 52 standard cards, two Joker cards, and four wild cards. Each card comes with a unique cat illustration, and you’ll find it quite hard to pick out your favorite one because they are all adorable.

The cat illustrations are inspired by pop culture, history, holidays, and more. You’ll encounter El Tigre cat, a feline in a tiger wrestling costume, Halloween cat, which is all ready for Trick or Treating, Frida Khalico, a cat inspired by famous painter Frida Kahlo, and Cat Herder, which is a cat dressed like a cowboy. How cool is that?

The standard Cat’s Meow playing card deck is currently available on Phillips’ Etsy shop. You can also pick up a special limited edition of the deck that comes with one of the original sketches.

“The Cat’s Meow playing card deck showcases 58 individual cat illustrations by Chet Phillips with custom card back art and a colorful tuck box. These plastic coated poker decks are purrfect for family game night,” Phillips explains.
