Best Cat Squishmallows Guide

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Squishmallow Cats

If you don’t have a Squishmallow now, I have the perfect kitty cat Squishmallow pillows for you! They cradle your head (and body, if you get the larger ones) with just the right amount of stretchy, velvety comfort. How many Squishmallow cats do you think there are? It’s more than 50! It is somewhere between 60 and 80!! The number will increase if you include lions, tigers, cheetahs, and other large “cats.”  How to choose? I will break it down for you and give you everything you ever wanted to know about the cat Squishmallows so that you can pick one that is just for you!

Only Cat Squishmallow

Now, friends, we will focus on JUST the adorable, feline-only cats of the Squishmallow family! Here is every little thing you wanted to know – in one place – about the cute and squishy pillow cats of Squishmallow Land (or SquishmallowVille)! I couldn’t choose just one, so I have several that I highly recommend based on their personality and the kind vibes they give off! Another factor in selecting the best cat Squishmallows was their love of the planet! Earth-loving cats that try to make the world a better place were high on my list!

Best Pick – Squishmallow Cat “Autumn” Favorite Friend 

Squishmallow Cat "Autumn" Favorite Friend 

Autumn is one of my favorite cats because she looks so much like a real cat but still has that purple glamour going on! I love that her eyes are wide open – she is awake and thinking about her next Adventure.

Just like her black coloring, she comes alive at night, and pure excitement runs through her as she scouts out her next romp around with her friends. Autumn the Squishmallow does not love the morning time!

She invites you to travel worldwide with her – at night, of course! She looks for the Halloween celebrations in every city and country! She is a nature-loving cat, and she thinks it is fantastic to be outside in the dark. It is natural for her to rise with Mr. Moon and seek out her next journey!

She has several editions, all having to do with Halloween, and belongs to 3 different Squads! Even though she sleeps during the day, she is a social butterfly at night!

You can buy her at Mercari!

Carmen the Cat Squishmallow from the Valentine Squad for SALE

Carmen the Cat Squishmallow from the Valentine Squad

You can buy this eight-inch Squishmallow on eBay for about $15.

I chose Carmen because she has a more pronounced nose and mouth (in a circle), which gives her an adorable, squishy, fat face!

She looks delicate because of her eyelashes, which many Squishmallows do not have. Her simple white fur with pink accents makes her scrunchy little face stand out!

I also chose her because she is ALL cat – rather than a mixture of Squishmallow breeds. Her category is clear-cut, and it’s not confusing to have her belong to many “groups.”

Her personality’s message is eco-friendly, focusing on finding the beauty in nature and photographing it. Looking at rocks and trees to discover pretty natural resources is refreshing in this speed-of-light technological world around us.

Shany the Squishmallow Cat for SALE

Shany the Squishmallow Cat

This gorgeous, glittery Shany is a whopping 16 inches of pillow friend love! Shany made the best picks list because of her bright eyes that are unique, and her deep, luxurious teal, and shiny purple patches.

Her smile is genuinely welcoming and joyful – she almost has live energy about her! I loved that she takes baths with pink fizz balls – that is something not mentioned with any other cat Squishmallow!

Another unique pastime of Shany is her affection for cooking heart-shaped GLITTER cookies! Now that is creative!

You can buy glitzy Shany on Poshmark.

List of all the Squishmallow Cats

Here is the master list of all the cats in Squishmallow Land! Remember that some cats have different editions, with different colors or details added. I have not included them here because this would be twenty pages! An excellent website to see is the Squishmallow Fandom for a total listing of every cat and animal. (That website is somewhat under construction and is missing some information – so, an excellent place to go but expect a bit of searching).

Autumn is a black cat with a purple belly and purple ears who loves Halloween and traveling. The night is when she is most active and always looks around every corner to find a new adventure! Making others laugh and solving mysteries are her favorite things to do. She is inviting you to be her friend!

Squishmallow Caticorn Cats

The CATICORN. A caticorn is a Squishmallow cat that has a unicorn horn.

That doesn’t sound very comfortable to me, but these friends seem to enjoy their dual breed! There are more than 23 different caticorns

(I say this because the number is different on the Squishmallow website than if you search for Squishmallow Caticorns! I found more than 23!)  Here they are, according to the official Squishmallow site!

Squishmallows quickly grow in value and are trending towards infinity on the popularity spectrum. More than 3 million Squishmallows have been sold – and many people consider that number to be closer to 5 million.

Created in 2017 with the “Original Squad,” Squishmallows have hit the ground running! Who wouldn’t love these adorable, soft, huggable friends? Especially when they turn into pillows for us and whisper of future adventures.

Having that tactile body sensation – (especially if you invest in a 16 to 24-inch Squishmallow) – is something you can’t replace. If you have challenges falling asleep or self-soothing, it will help to have soft pressure. This is for children and adults! I have seen all the Squishmallow cats there are, and they are the most precious loves you can buy. So soft, squishy, and almost foamy-like, with a bit of firmness to keep them in shape.

My Favorite Caticorns!!

LOBI the Caticorn Squishmallow is a special edition and is very rare – for SALE

Lobi the caticorn is a sweet black and white cat originally manufactured only for Claire’s and sold through second-hand stores. (Although you can get a brand new one). Her rainbow unicorn horn looks quite pretty against her black and white fur. She is exceptional and would be a great addition to your plushy friends because she is hard to find, and her horn stands out so much!

Lobi loves YARN! Her room is full of yarn everywhere – she sleeps in it when she is not knitting scarves and ear warmers for her friends.

This Squishmallow is a specialist in varieties of yarn, and some of her favorites are sparkly and glittery yarns, rainbow and tie-dyed yarns and even bubblegum scented yarn! I love the fact that Lobi creates warm things to snuggle in. It’s just like when she snuggles with you! I also am so fond of her young and sweet face that is always looking for new friends!

Lobi has a goal to open a yarn museum to show her different styles of yarn and knitting. She invites you to help her, and to come and visit! You can buy her on Mercari.

Squishmallow Caticorn Mermaids

In addition to cats that are part unicorns, some cats are unicorns that are mermaids! They are called Mermaid Caticorns, and there are approximately 5 of them. Their names are Anya, Mitzie, Gracie, Svetlana, and I will include “Hello Kitty Squishmallow Mermaid” as well.

Squishmallow Hello Kitty Mermaid Cat with Tail for SALE

Hello Kitty is half cat and half mermaid, and she has a unique and beautiful glittery tail that helps her swim extremely fast!

This Squishmallow is a collector’s edition, and it may be hard to find anywhere other than second-hand stores, but there are many new ones for sale like the one to the left.

Amazon also carries Hello Kitty Squishmallows. There are several varieties, including Hello Kitty with sunglasses, a floral Hello Kitty, Hello Kitty Red, Pink, and Rainbow, and the list goes on!

I suppose those Hello Kitty Squishmallows could either be classified as “cat” Squishmallows or “Hello Kitty” Squishmallows. This Hello Kitty mermaid can be found on Mercari.

My Favorite Caticorn Mermaid! Svetlana – Squishmallow Cat, Unicorn, and Mermaid in one, for SALE

My favorite Caticorn Mermaid is Svetlana because of her bright, wide-open eyes and her adorable glitzy two-piece bikini. She is very stylish and pulls herself together.

I also like her because her unicorn horn is visible and doesn’t have many confusing colors! She looks like she has a natural horn growing out of her head. The colors of her bathing suit are sea life colored and make Svetlana very happy.

Some of her favorite things to do are boogie-boarding and sunbathing in her hammock. Svetlana is probably riding the waves if you see cat ears and glitter out on the water! She reads adventure stories and can’t get enough good books to read – have you any suggestions? To keep her mermaid figure, she loves to drink all kinds of smoothies and invites you to give her a recipe!

Svetlana is in many places, and here she is at eBay!


Question: Can you Wash Squishmallows?

Answer: Yes! Squishmallows are machine washable and dryer friendly. It’s best to use a gentle, no-bleach stain remover first and then wash in warm or cool water cycles. For the dryer, you can use low heat settings. If they come out a bit “mashed up,” you can easily squeeze them back into shape! They are made of extra soft Spandex with a polyester filling.

Question: Why are Squishmallows so Special?

Answer: Squishmallows have taken over the stuffed animal niche and are everywhere on the internet! They range in size from 2 inches to 24 inches, and all are made from velvety soft Spandex that is quite flexible and soft.
They are a pillow, but they are an animal or cross-breed of animals! They have cats and unicorns and “caticorns.” Bats, dogs, pigs, bees, butterflies, cows, sea creatures, and others – all total, there are over 1000 different Squishmallows to choose from! They each have a unique personality, from studying to be a chemist and taking baths with pink fizz bombs to photographing nature and being in the medical field! They all have favorite foods, holidays, and friends, and you can play online Squishmallow games! Their presence in social media has hundreds of thousands of fans!
They are a quality item, can be machine washed, and everyone can find one with similar likes and dislikes! Their mushy faces are excited and cheerful, and quite a few have eco-friendly goals! Since 2017 they have been increasing in popularity with ages 3 to 103!

Question: How Many Different Squishmallow Animals are There?

Answer: There are so many Squishmallow creatures that only the manufacturer knows! New categories are created constantly, so keeping an exhaustive list is…well…exhausting! As of now, this is the ultimate Squishmallow creature category list!
Guinea Pig
Red Panda
Sea Bunny
Sea Pig
Water Bear

Question: What is a Squishmallow “Squad”?

Answer: In short, a squad of Squishmallows is a group of Squishmallows that all have the same theme. The “Food Squad” has different kinds of food for Squishmallows, and the “Halloween Squad” is made of Squishmallows who love Halloween. New squads are being released constantly (with multiple new Squishmallows in them), and to date, there are more than 65 squads! Here is the list of all the squads I could find from many different sources!

In Conclusion

Squishmallows are all over the internet. Whether you are 6 or 60 years old, you can find one with the same aspirations, feelings, hobbies, goals, and life philosophies! They are very soft and cuddly, machine washable, instantly usable as pillows and friends, and can spark imaginative role-play stories. Squishmallows provide a tool to model appropriate behavior through interactive play and quality time with your youngsters. I would recommend buying a Squishmallow or two just for the car playtime alone! They are great for travel friends, highly mobile, and when your head nods with sleep, they are there to comfort you.

The sizes lend a variety of choices for prices and for small bedrooms! Having ten Squishmallows with each one being two feet across can be space invasive! Then again, trying to buy ten extra-large Squishmallow at $50+ can be wallet invasive!

A quick tip is to buy directly from Jazwares or so that you are not paying the inflated prices of old edition Squishmallows. I saw one being sold for over $800! That is just not in my reality. The Learning Express is also a reputable seller.

An idea to increase the value of your Squishmallow collection is to focus on one Squishmallow and then research all the different editions that it has. If you group them with all known editions, your “squad” will be more valuable should you decide to resell.

Cornella the UniMermaid Squishmallow for SALE at Target 

I had to include Cornella, the most lovely unicorn mermaid that ever lived! She can be found at Target and the price is reasonable! At 20 inches wide, she is sure to be the best buddy for cuddling.

She has aquamarine and brilliant blue accents on her sea-green velvet body, and stitching detail on her scalloped shell bikini top!

Her feminine eyelashes are squinted up in the most friendly smile and her unicorn horn blends in with her colors.

I  included her because her best friends are the Caticorns above!
