This is the day you humans all do your online holiday gift shopping for your cats. Or at least that is the way it is supposed to work. To make your life easier, I have listed 10 of my personally paw-approved cat gift ideas. Get these items for your cats and you — and your kitties — will not regret it!
Pit’r Pat Fresh Breath Cat Treats
I swear by these treats — they are my favorite, even beyond freeze-dried chicken (which I also love). Supposedly they contain chlorophyll to freshen your breath, but my human has never tried to smell my breath after giving them to me. All I know is that they are amazingly tasty, a little high-priced, but totally worth putting in your kitty’s Christmas stocking this year — or buying for her any of time of year!
Frolicat Bolt Laser Cat Toy
This is sort of like the red dot on steroids. Placed on the floor or on the table, it automatically creates highly chase-able random laser patterns. Or your human can hold it an use it manually for even more randomness! It can be adjusted to aim the laser across a variety of surfaces, and in automatic mode, it turns itself off in 15 minutes (by which time you will probably already be bored with it and off chasing a twist tie or milk ring).
DJ Cat Scratch Turntable
Kitties, do you envy those human DJs and wish you could scratch out your own tune? Then this cool cardboard turntable scratcher is a must! This is a toy that only the coolest cats in your ‘hood will have, so get ready to impress your pals with your stylin’ moves and rhythmic whaps.
Mouse in the House Automatic Cat Toy
Ideally, your human would let mice loose in your house for real so you could get your hunt on. But since that will probably not happen, this programmable electronic cat toy will have to do. The mouse wanders through this 20″ plastic living room replica and it is up to you to stop it! Not only can your human program this toy — if you are bright enough, you can even learn to turn it on yourself!
Kitty Ball Bed
Let me tell you a secret: I saw this on the website of a “major pet retailer” at a much higher price than it is being offered at CatsPlay.com! So I am doing your humans a favor and featuring the less expensive merchant. At any price, you will look fabulous in this very cool looking bed. Your human may worry that you will make short work of the weave, but it is made from nontoxic poly rattan that will hold up to your clawing. It includes a soft, machine-washable cushion with a removable cover.
Tropical Island Bamboo Cat Bed
You will feel like a tropical jungle cat (albeit a pampered one) in this exotic bed! The red cushion has a palm tree print and there is a pull-out drawer for your favorite cat toys. It’s made out of bamboo and wood, which will appeal to the wildcat inside you, and it’s suitable for animals under 30 lbs., which means it will fit just about any kitty. Imagine all the rainforest creatures you will dream of catching in this bed!
Habicat Wall Climber
I’ve seen a number of wall shelving units for cats to increase our vertical space, but I liked the design of this one the best. The hexagon shape is graceful, plus your human can buy multiples and easily set them up together for a multi-level playing and resting surface. It can also be placed on the floor, if you are an older kitty who does not like to jump. Each flat surface has a washable felt pad and is 26″ from corner to corner and 12″ wide (measured out from the wall).
Mocha Leopard Thermo-Kitty Bed
This is even better than an already-comfy heated cat cup because the zippered hood makes it extra cozy! And if you decide you don’t like the hood (every kitty has different taste), it is removable. The 4 watt heating unit is hidden deep within the polyfil pillow base and will warm to your normal body temperature for a dreamy napping and resting experience. Hey, the weather is only going to get colder for the next few months, so let your human know this bed is a must have!
Sunflower Cat Tree
Have you ever wanted a Sunflower Cat Tree like the one at Carm’s house? Then here is your chance! If this 52″ tree is sturdy enough to hold big, handsome Maine Coons like Tommy and Pride, then it is probably big enough for you! Even better, the leaves are designed to cushion the landing when you jump on them, and they also have a thermal lining to retain your body heat — especially important during the cold winter months!
Cradle in the Sky 6 Level Rustic Cat Tree
Here is the ultimate cat tree — it will make you feel fabulously feral! Each tree is handmade by a skilled craftshuman, so your tree will be different from any other kitty’s. Your tree will have 3 cradles, 2 round perches, 1 pagoda and 1 tunnel, with one color of carpet, plus your choice of 1, 2 or no sisal legs. You will be the envy of the cats on your block with this very special tree!
