Divination meet PookieCat – PookieCat meet Tarot. This is a fantastically happy little deck.

Pookie is a cheeky orange cat with a personality similar to Simon's Cat. There are also many of Pookies friends throughout the deck, birds, mice, butterflies, and hedgehogs to name a few. The cards are mostly associated with Rider-Waite-Smith traditional meanings. There is a .pdf file of definitions available for download.

The deck arrives sealed in plastic with a cute sticker that says “Made With Love,” along with a pretty little orange organza bag.

Only the Fool is numbered in the Major Arcana. The suits are Pentacles, Swords, Wands, and Cups. The courts are Page, Knight, Queen, and King. The 2 extra cards are The King of Kings and Secret Card which is autographed.

The cards measure 2 1/5” wide by 3 1/2” tall. The images are printed on a thick cardstock which makes the deck thicker than normal but the deck riffle-bridge shuffles and fans well. The laminate only has a light shine.

The images have a sky blue narrow border all the way around, with the bottom banner measuring in at approximately 1/4". This is where you will find the title of the card. The card backs are not reversible friendly that looks like a blue sky with clouds making up kitty footprints, a simple what image of Pookie and the PookieCat Logo at the bottom center.

The images are bright, some are even a bit sassy, all are definitely designed to put a smile on your face. Yes, even the Tower is a cute image with a masked PookieCat and friend sitting on top of a house against a starry night sky. 

This is a fun little deck that can provide loads of laughs but can also give adventurous readings at the same time. PookieCat Cat-Rot cards can be used easily by a beginner all the way through the professional and would make a great gift for the kitty lovers everywhere.
