Yesterday I told you about some great cat gifts for the holidays — items that most of your humans can afford. But what if you’re a cat who doesn’t just perch on any old lap, but will only recline on the lap of luxury? I’ve got the perfect presents for you here! It’s been a long time since I’ve hunted down really unique kitty gifts, and I’m happy I can do it this year. Granted, it might take a lot of prodding (and maybe winning the lottery) for your human to spring for most of these items, but it’s nice to dream, isn’t it?
Why settle for a cat tree made out of carpet and sisal when you can have a for-real cat tree made out of… tree? In fact, this tree is even better than real because the trunk and branches are authentic, but the leaves are made of silk so they don’t get all dry and crumbly. The large cat tree house has several platforms and is perfect for a multi-cat household, although there may be some fights over who gets to hang out in the house at the bottom or the platform at the top. Each Cat Tree House is meticulously handcrafted, so this won’t get to your place in time for Christmas, but you can always wrap up a photograph of it for your cats to let them know of the cool gift that will be arriving in a few weeks!
Is it a litter box or is it a rocket ship? I’m still not sure, but the Litter-Robot is the kind of kitty commode that comes with bragging rights! It has all sorts of features that will thrill lazy humans — it is self-cleaning and supposedly there is no scooping necessary (although you never know with these electronic things). I just think it looks totally cool. While you are taking care of business, you can daydream that you are chasing mice on Mars or flying across the universe after a tasty bird!
What if you’re a more earthly feline who prefers to have your feet planted on terra firma? Here’s a patch of your very own. Okay, it is not wholly authentic — the grass is synthetic so that your human can easily wash it, and unlike real dirt, there is a drainage system for “simple disposal.” Why should your human buy a plain-old $15 plastic litter box when she can spend over $100 to give you that refreshing feeling of relieving yourself in the great outdoors?
If you already think you are a cat that has everything — think again! At nearly 6 feet long and 4 feet tall, this massive piece of cat furniture is almost as big as the ship it was named after, and it is probably a lot more sturdy! Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet never had it so good! They did not have all those play tunnels and portholes to play in. If you have always dreamed of traveling the seven seas (or however many there are) but didn’t want to risk getting wet, this is the toy for you. You will go down with the ship, but live to tell the tale! This is another custom-made item that won’t be ready in time for December 25, but it is certainly worth waiting for!
