Review: Cat Tarot


This post contains affiliate links*

I’ve long been a fan of Megan Lynn Knott. Her delightful watercolor illustrations of cats just make me happy. In her new Cat Tarot deck, Megan combines her unique way of depicting the feline spirit with the classic cards. 

Classic major arcana cards take on a feline spin: cats play on the carpeted “Tower,” have fun with various “Wands,” drink from a selection of “Cups,” and hide behind a paper bag as “The Hermit.”


The deck comes with a 108-page booklet that guides you through how to lay out the cards and how to interpret them.


I absolutely love this deck. My only complaint is that the print in the guide booklet is way too small. I hope that Megan will decide to offer the guide book as a pdf for those of  us who have trouble with small print!

Cat  Tarot is available from Amazon.

    What a nice and kind deck! It can be seen that its author knows and loves cats well. Cat habits are very accurately noticed. A good match for Tarot symbols.

    This is awesome and I can only imagine what Allegra and Ruby are thinking in their forever ticking minds. Both must be meowing and cat chattering amongst themselves. Although I’m not a big card fan and especially not Tarot Cards, the deck is nifty.

    These are beautiful cards. I will need to get some. I have an old deck called Tarot of the Cat People that I bought back in the early 90s that has great artwork too.

    What a beautiful deck. I wasn’t familiar with her art. I enjoy collection tarot cards although my reading skills need the booklet I will still be adding this one to my little collection.
