It should go without saying that I think this bowl, which I spotted in the latest Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, is pretty frickin’ awesome:

When it’s filled with liquid (soup? after-cereal milk?) you can see the silhouette of a cat! How cool is that? And when it’s empty, it just looks like an artsy bowl. Win-win! (The bowls also come in bird and wolf shapes, if cats aren’t your thing.)
These were designed by Geraldine de Beco, a young French designer, for Bernardaud, a fancy French porcelain manufacturer. So fancy, in fact, that one of these lovely pieces will set you back $189. MS Weddings has this in the morning section of its all-day registry guide — I’ll stick with my $4.95 cereal bowls from Crate & Barrel for the time being. If I hit the lottery, though, and have any left over after paying off our household educational debts, Little Man is definitely getting a matched set of swanky magic cat bowls to eat and drink out of. In the meantime, if any of y’all are feeling frivolous and spendy, you just let me know.
