Here are Gift Ideas for Penny and Soft Kitty Fans
Penny, who has no last name (and according to the writers, never will have one), is the main female character on the popular CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. Initially, she was the foil and problem solver for Sheldon and Leonard, her neighbors across the hall. They made things complicated while she kept things simple.
Her on-again,off-again romance with Leonard is one of the recurring plot lines n the series. Although they are attracted to each other, they are not an intellectual match; Leonard has a Ph.D. and she didn't graduate from community college. This particular difference has been one of the central reasons for their relationship has been rocky. However, at the end of season six in 2013, they appear to be on more stable ground.
Penny has even started to like the geeky things Leonard and the other guys do, as she hangs around them so much. She is popular with them, and very popular with her fans. That is why Penny-centric soft kitty gifts are perfect for fans on your gift list.

The Origins of Soft Kitty
Many people are under the impression that the writers and creators of The Big Bang Theory made up the "Soft Kitty" song (kind of like Phoebe's "Smelly Cat" from Friends.) They did not!
According to a New Zealand blogger named Matty, this is an actual song! It was published in a children's nursery songbook in 1937. It was recorded in 2009 by Patsy Bryce for a children's album. It's actual name is "Warm Kitty".
Because kitty cats are warm and soft, many of the Soft Kitty gifts are meant to keep the chill away on cold days and nights. Each one of them would delight the soft kitty fan on your gift list!
