Happiness is waking up to a warm cat...even if it's on your neck.

Life with Tigers is a craft and design studio operating out of New York City by Ren Brazell. Everything created here is one-of-a-kind and made by hand from original designs and patterns. The workspace is filled with illustrations, old cameras, e-readers, swatches of fabric, computer equipment, disassembled electronics, cat toys, video games and most importantly, the Life with Tigers staff, comprised of Moo the art director and the intrepid intern and spokescat, Lachlan McLachlan, alongside their beleaguered human.

Our goodies are available through our Etsy shop, but you can sometimes find us at craft fairs, pop-up shops and at New York Comic Con.

“To my human eye, these are very cute and well made. I’ll see at Christmas if my little savage “brothers” go crazy over them due to catnip – or if they’d just rather play in the gift bag like they usually do.”

“These are great and surprisingly durable toys! We finally replaced our well-loved zebra leg with some fresh toys and our cat hasn’t left it alone for the past 15 minutes. Well-crafted toys from a really awesome person!”

“The package said “keep out of reach of tigers”, Marble decided the warning couldn’t possibly pertain to her so she ripped open my mail before I even had the chance. As you can see from this blissful picture, she absolutely adores her severed zebra leg.”
