Paw Parade

Paw Parade

Paw Parade is a mother-daughter team of crafty cat ladies from Ottawa, Ontario. They make handcrafted bow ties for dogs & cats using vintage and designer fabrics in bright colours and fun patterns. They also make collars, felt toys and a few other items exclusively for cats.


These bow ties are made with designer fabric, fusible interfacing (that helps keep their shape) and have two elastics that slip around your pets collar. Pattern position & colour may vary slightly from one seen in photo. 

Bow ties are available in 3 widths. If your not sure what size your furry friend needs, message Paw Parade and they’ll gladly help you find the right fit. 

Small / 3.25″ / 8.5cm / Fits small dogs and most cats.

Medium / 4″ / 10cm / Fits small to medium dogs (depending on the breed) and large or fluffy cats.

Large / 4.75″ / 12cm / Fits medium to large dogs, depending on the breed.

This is Fish. He loves to celebrate Tieday Friday with his very loyal Facebook followers. Unfortunately in 2016 Fish fell ill and Tieday Friday was postponed indefinitely.

We are so honoured and feel so blessed that Paw Parade was able to accompany us in our Tieday Friday comeback now that Fish is back on his feet.

Such amazing bowties. Nice thick fabric and sturdy construction. Excellent for any cat award shows Fish may need to attend in the future 😉

Cat toys

Each cat toy is lovingly made by hand using felt and homegrown, organic catnip from Edmonton, Canada. This catnip is awesome, cats love it!

Ice Cream Cones : Size is approximately 3.5” x 2.5″ (Colour & size may vary slightly then ones in photo.)


Pineapples : Size is approximately 2.5″ x 4.5″ (Colour & size may vary slightly then ones in photo.)

Fish LOVES the sound of tissue paper. Therefore, any time we have a catnip party I lay some down on the floor and put the toys on top.

I have never seen my cat love on a pineapple so much, SERIOUSLY! Edmonton catnip is some serious kitty crack!

Fish had a blast modelling the bowties and playing with the catnip toys. Paw Parade is a company he feels comfortable throwing his weight behind. Fish gives Paw Parade his Paw Seal of Approval.
