Your cat’s a little puzzling, right? It’s hard to figure out what the mischievous little cuties are thinking — or what they’re gonna do next. That’s why a cat-themed puzzle is a pretty fitting activity. Instead of trying to decode your own cat (good luck!), you can keep yourself busy with an actually solvable task — and get a gorgeous cat-themed image as a result. Seriously, these finds are mount-on-the-wall level cute. Or you can give your favorite cat person one of these as a holiday present, and it’ll easily be the best thing they got this year.

Just maybe keep the in-progress puzzle away from your actual cat, since all those little pieces might look more like kicker toys to them. Oh, and a bonus tip: These also make great under-the-tree gifts for the cat person in your life.

Piecework, known for their high production value and puzzles that make us want to stay in with a stew for two (the second person being our cat) rather that hit the bars, truly delivers with their latest feline creation. The puzzle features 22 porcelain tchotchke and real-life cats, creating a Where’s Waldo component to an already joyfully colorful scenery. They’ve even blessed cat people with a 45-song, cat-themed Spotify playlist to enjoy while puzzling. Piecework is helping turn the “cat lady” cultural archetype on its head one puzzle piece at a time.

Look at him. He’s so cute with his little hat. He’s a cat and a cowboy and just plain perfect all over. The puzzle is 500 pieces and measures 25 x 18 inches when fully assembled — and the pieces are random-cut, so each one is different, which makes putting it together a lot more fun. It also comes with a poster of Scotty (that’s the cowboy-kitty’s name), so you can still look at his gorgeous visage even after the puzzle is disassembled and put away.

Note: This puzzle is sold out, but hang in there, partner! If requested at the link, Le Puzz will notify you when this is available again, so you can hopefully say “howdy” to this one soon.
