“Hell No Kitty” Makeup Pouches Lend A Helping Paw



Meowza! Our “Hell No Kitty” makeup pouches are here!…


Cynthia (exclaiming):  We are so excited!

Marcy (yelling):  Yeah!

penelope kitten (squeaking):  so happy happy!

Cynthia:  Our “Hell No Kitty” makeup pouches/handy bags have arrived!


They’re cute, sturdy, eco-friendly, and beautifully hand sewn by the women of Freeset in India.



Freeset is a non-profit in India that provides employment, competitive salaries, health benefits, and pensions to women and girls fleeing the sex trade in Kolkata.




Freeset’s  goal is to empower all 10,000 women of Sonagacchi (the largest sex district in Kolkata) with the choice to leave “a profession they never chose in the first place.”




Cynthia:  We are honored that our “Hell No Kitty” makeup pouches/handy bag and Emoji Kitty pencil cases are made by such courageous women.

And, we are thrilled that by ordering some of our Marcy Merch through Freeset, we are lending a helping hand. Or paw, as the case may be.

Marcy:  Exactly.



*Our Hell No Kitty makeup pouch/handy bag and Emoji Kitty pencil case can be purchased on our online shop here.

    LOVE! It’s fantastic to hear that they’re being made by these women, who are being paid and treated fairly (not that I’d expect you to do any differently!). That pic of Marcy and the pouch — how did you manage that? Oh. Well, I guess she always has that look on her face, hence the logo… 🙂

    Congratulations on the new merch!
    (I’m still comin’ for my pen case… )

    It is wonderful that you found this organization to support.
    Keep up the rescue work, Cynthia. You are making a difference in the lives of women in India and cats in LA. We’re all fortunate to have you in our lives.
    (I love the green inside.)

    *Mama Beth squeals with excitement as she writes down ordering one on her to do list*

    Clove: She squeals with delight at a make up bag but squeals in terror when we bring her a ‘gift’ of a mouse or snakie?! Such rudeness!

    Kaspars: Tell me about it- humans are so weird.

    Clove: It is a pawesome graphic of Marcy though, and purrty cool to be featured on something human Moms do like!

    Kaspars: Catabulous! She could appreciate a snakie a bit more though.

    Clove: Never will happen.

      Ahahahahhhahaaa!!! Love this conversation between Kaspars and Clove!!!!
      kaspars and clove, aren’t humans just so completely clueless? a snake or mouse is a truly wonderful gift. we cats never get any appreciation for our efforts.

    Great job Cynthia on supporting a worthy cause. The photo of Marcy and the pouch is priceless, the graphic purrrfectly captures Marcy’s cranky expression! Happy Mother’s Day, those 4 cats of yours are very fortunate to have you!
