Why should humans be the only ones to get treats and small gifts for Easter? Why not share the festivities with your cat? My human was inspired by a couple of things our friend Penny at 15 and Meowing thought up, and ran with it. So here is how to make an Easter basket for your cat that’s both safe and fun!
First off, of course, you have to start with the basket. If your cat likes to chew on things, you may not want to use the traditional straw one. My human found this pink plastic egg basket at CVS. They also had fun bunny-faced fabric ones.
I’m sure you are already smart enough not to use plastic grass because it is dangerous if swallowed by a cat. My human usually uses paper grass, but Penny suggested real cat grass. That is a great idea, but my human took it one step further and got a catnip plant too.
That may be a little much, though, because you need room for the other goodies. If you are going to use both, I suggest getting a bigger basket (perfect for multi-cat families), or pick either the catnip plant or the cat grass and not both.
Humans get chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and robin’s eggs. Kitties get cat treats.
Here’s something else you can also do — put cat treats inside of those plastic, fillable Easter eggs!
And of course, you’ll also add some fun little toys. My human picked up a couple of catnip Barnyarn Buddies and a catnip lamb for me.
Arrange everything nicely in the basket, and there you have it! A cat Easter basket that any kitty would love!
So are you going to put together an Easter basket for your kitty? And what do you think your cats would like best in their own baskets? Let me know in the comments!
