You don’t need nine lives to know that having the right font is the key to creating a perfect design for any cat-themed project.
Cat fonts are usually fun, playful, and have a unique personality all of their own…just like our furry feline friends we know and love!
Whether you’re working on a design project for an animal shelter, a cat-sitter, or another animal-centered business, or creating greeting cards, home décor, or other cat-centered designs, there’s a font out there that will bring your ideas to life.
Best Cat Fonts
To simplify your search, we’ve rounded up a list of the best cat fonts to use in your cat-themed graphic designs.
Stop what you’re doing right meow and dive into the list of premium fonts below.
If you love fonts, you’ll definitely want to check out Envato Elements. With an Elements subscription, you’ll get unlimited downloads of 39,000+ fonts, plus millions of other resources like WordPress themes, stock photos, graphics, sound effects, and more. It’s the best value you’ll find in the design industry.
The Cat is a fun and bubbly typeface that we adore for its cute little cat illustrations built into various letters within the font. It includes both uppercase and lowercase letters and will look adorable on a variety of designs, like business cards for a cat-sitting business or product tags for pet products.
This cute handwritten font is a favorite of ours. We’re absolutely in love with the cute tiny paw prints that decorate each letter! It’s the ‘purrfect’ choice for any cat or pet-themed designs you may be making, if we do say so ourselves.
Sweety Cats is a kids-inspired font that will bring a young and playful spirit to your project. The capital letters all have tiny cat ears drawn onto them. How cute is that?!
We think this font would look so cute on cat-themed birthday or Valentine’s Day cards. It will also look wonderful on book covers, logos, and other design formats.
This font is the cat’s meow of cute handwritten cat fonts! We love this font for its variety (it comes in three variations, a regular/solid variation, a paw print variation, and a cat ears variation.) Of course, we also love that this font download comes with clipart doodles that can be used to add fun illustrations to your project. (You know we’re suckers for a font with bonus freebies!)
Use this font to design online graphics (maybe for a pet shelter or pet business website), decals for home goods (like pillows and mugs), or even apparel designs (like a graphic t-shirt).
Tabby is a layered font made up of a regular/solid font, a display font (with tabby cat stripes), and a shadow font. We’re a fan of layered fonts like this one because you can use the fonts separately or all together. It can be fun to mix and match!
For a simpler look that’s still on theme, we recommend Simple Cat. The simple style of the letters really makes the cat and curlicue embellishments stand out
We also like that this font comes with a plain version of the font. In fact, we recommend using the decorative version on titles, headings, and short phrases and using the plain version for any smaller supplemental text your design may have. This will ensure your design is easy to read if it has a lot of text.
Misty the Cat brings plenty of feline charm to its designs! We chose to include this font because it comes with a wide variety of font variations and alternatives, plus it includes over 50 cat-themed doodles. (We told you we love fonts with free doodles, didn’t we?)
To use this font, type uppercase characters for the regular/solid version of the font and type lowercase characters for the decorative version that features tiny little paw prints along the letters.
Additionally, this font features three alternate styles: one with a fish-bone design on the letters, one with cat ear designs on top of the letters, and finally, one with a feather cat toy design on the letters. We recommend mixing and matching these for a fun look! And of course, be sure to top off your design with one of the many doodles that come with this font.
Add a pop of color to your cat-themed design with this OTF color font. We came across this playful font and couldn’t not include it in this list!
The creative set of characters are made up entirely of cat illustrations. Even the numbers and punctuation symbols come in cute illustrations. Choose your choice of color, black, or print versions of the font and use them to bring your next project to life.
Cats Black Font is pulled from the font family listed above, but we wanted to highlight it for any designers who wanted a black-and-white version of the font.
We think the illustrations look just as cute when used in all black and white as they do in color! (And of course, you can change the color as needed.)
Whether you use this font in print design projects or digital design projects, the adorable illustrative style of the letters will give your work plenty of personality.
This quirky bubble letter font is perfect for creating fun and easy-to-read designs. This font comes with both a regular version of the font and a decorative version with cute paw prints decorating some of the letters.
We think this font would look fantastic on branding designs for vet offices or animal shelters. It would also look cute on cover photos for pet-based blogs and YouTube channels, children’s book covers, social media graphics, and more.
Cattyla has cute cat letters that feature little kitten ears on top. We love this font for its soft bubble letters and the set of bonus doodles that come with it. It’s easy to get creative when you’re using a cat font like this!
If you’re looking for a chunky script font for your cat-themed designs, we definitely suggest Catty Purry!
Not only does it come with a regular solid version of the font, but it also includes tons of alternative character sets to choose from, including alternates with cat tails, cat ears, and even curlicue designs. With so much variety, you’ll be able to use this font over and over again!
Catto Puroo is similar to other fonts we included in this list, with its thin handwritten bubble letters and paw print embellishments.
We especially like this font because it comes with a display font and an extruding font that can be stacked to create a shadow effect. Of course, you can also use the fonts separately for an equally adorable design.
We absolutely love this cute decorative cat font, because each letter has its own style. When you put it all together as text, you get a seamless and cohesive design that takes a personality all its own.
For the best results using this font, we recommend using a mix of uppercase and lowercase characters to really spice up your design.
Cat Font is a cool 3D textured font that makes us want to reach out and touch the soft fuzzy letters. You can type as plain letters, or you can add on cat tails and ears to give your text a more feline feel.
This bold doodle font duo comes with an outline version (filled with cute little cat-themed illustrations) and a regular solid version. In addition to the two fonts, you’ll receive three adorable cat illustrations and a seamless pattern for your designs.
Between the fonts, the illustrations, and the seamless pattern, you’ve got everything you need to ensure your next cat-themed project is perfect.
Moccat is a cute script font inspired by the author’s own cat. We think it really does capture the sweetness, sassiness, and playfulness cats always seem to have.
The letters are written in an authentic handwritten style and feature dainty little cat ears on each letter. The font also comes with added doodles (which we love!) and alternate letters with swashes on the ends. (We recommend using these characters either for initials or at the beginning and end of a word or phrase so that the swashes ‘bookend’ the text.)
We can’t help but feel that this font would look outstanding on a Valentine’s Day card, but we know it will look amazing on any design you use it on.
We couldn’t help but fall in love with this cute calico-inspired font, and we think you’ll love it just as much! Each letter is covered in a pattern resembling a calico cat’s fur, all covered in messy brown, white, and black spots.
The layers consist of the base layer (a regular font without the spots) and two patterned layers that make up the spot pattern. Since the patterned font may be hard to read in a long row of text, we suggest using the spotted font for titles and headings and the regular version for supplemental text on your design.
Cat Meow is an adorable font with tiny cat characters and paw prints decorating each letter. This is another font we recommend using in titles and headings.
This font would look wonderful on a banner or decorations for a child’s birthday party (or a cat’s birthday party!), flyers for adoption events, and more.
This font dials things back a bit with its linear letterform. Each letter is drawn to look like a cat. It’s a perfect font for any cat-themed project, but we think this font works especially well on designs that use short phrases, like greeting cards, graphic t-shirts, and other products.

This font is much more minimalistic, and we love the simplicity it brings to a design. The capital letters are shaped like cats which adds the perfect touch of feline personality to the text.
Cat Fonts is another thin font that’s somewhat more minimal. The cute cat faces that decorate each letter gives the text an adorable kitten-like character.
This playful font comes with regular and decorated characters (with cat ears on top) and plenty of alternate letters for your designs. This font would look so cute on DIY nursery or kid’s room décor, but it fits any fine feline design you may be working on.
