It is soon time for Christmas again and you got most of the shopping sorted but you forgot to get something for your dear cats (or the cat of the family or a friend you care about). No worries, here are 10 Christmas presents for cats you could give.
Go Pet Club 62 Inch Cat Tree
If you really want to give something fantastic for your cats, then it is a so called cat tree. This is a structure of planks and poles that is meant for cats to play and call it their own. A cat tree offers a great solution to furniture scratching cats. Now your cat will have a dedicated place to sharp their nails.
The Go Pet Club Cat Tree is 62 inch and is definitely one of the bigger cat trees. It has great quality and handles any type of cat, whether it is small medium or large sized. It is therefore also one of the best selling cat tree’s around.
We got this cat tree and our cats are more than happy with it. We recently wrote a review about cat trees.
Bergan Turbo Scratcher
A cheaper way of directing scratching away from your beautiful furniture towards a special designed toy is by buying the Bergan Turbo Scratcher.
It is a round platform with cardboard like material in the middle. The outer circle has a ball for extra cat play. Cats love this type of toy and it is an often used toy in the cat care center.
CatIt Flower Fountain
Cats don’t generally get enough liquids in them, unless it is part of their diet. In nature they would eat animals with liquid contents in them. Cats get only 10% water through kibble and as much as 70% through wet cat food. Unfortunately most people feed their cats dry kibble and hence installing plentiful options to drink for your cat is absolutely necessary. Domestic cats only get water through drinking it and they are not specially good at this. To encourage a cat to drink more, we need to make it interesting to them.
That’s where cat fountains come in place. A cat fountain is interesting, because it is moving water, it makes noise and on top of that they filter the water to keep water fresh.
You can read a more thorough review of the CatIt Flower Fountain here.
The CatIt Flower Fountain has different ways for your cats to enjoy water. It contains several filters to remove impurities in the water, remove residue of hair and dirt and keeps water fresh longer through movement. It also has a blank container, making sure sunlight cannot contaminate it as fast.
It is a great fountain and we have placed two of them in our household. Your cats will love it!
Another great way to keep your cats busy all day is by introducing a cat tunnel. This Three-way cat tunnel offers extra fun, because of the intersection. Some cats just love to hide and sit for hours within the tunnel, others want to run through it from one side of the living room to the other and yet others again take their toys into the tunnel to play out of sight.
We did a review on cat tunnels.
Self Warming Cat Beds
This cat bed is self warming. This means that the body heat from the cat will be transferred into the bed pillow and keeps your cat nice cozy and warm. You will see that they will love this type of bed. We got a couple of these beds installed in our house on different places.
Cats really need to stay warm, especially in the cold winter weather of this season. Another good reason to get a cat bed is to have less cat hairs in your furniture. Cat hairs will be trapped by the pillow of these cat beds.
PetFusion Premium Cat Blanket
Cats love warm and cozy places. They usually love to sit on our bed blanket or a person’s lap for the same reason. Like us, cats have body heat and when this body heat is transferred on a soft warm blanket, it can be reflected keeping them warm. We are really pleased with the PetFusion cat blankets. These blankets protect your sofa or chair from cat hairs and keep your cat happy and warm.
The cat blanket keeps cat hairs that may fall off during their sleep or grooming. The blanket is also nice and warm for your cat, wherever you want to put it. Cats should never really sit on the bare floor boards, because of drafts and often cold floors.
Smaller dogs will also fit on this blanket, so it is not only great for cats.
Organic Cat Grass
Giving another persons cat food or snacks can be a difficult thing, because you don’t know whether there are special diet requirements for that cat. But cat grass is a very innocent and easy way to give a healthy snack for your or someone else’s cat.
Cats use cat grass for a number of reasons. As such they can get important vitamins out of this grass, but they also use it to get hairballs out of their stomach or use the grass to floss their teeth.
Cat grass is usually grown from rye, barley, oat or wheat seeds. Getting seeds at this time of the year might prove difficult, so that’s why these special gift packages for cat grass exist.
This grass will grow relatively fast. The sprouts should appear after 1-2 days and the grass should be ready for consumption within 4-5 days time. The grass will need continuous irrigation with water as they drink a lot, but the chance that your cat will eat up all the grass before that is also big.
This ecological cat grass growing set has a very nice growing base with cat design. There are also refill packs available for when it has been eaten empty.
PetStages Tower of Tracks
If you thought that balls were only fun for dogs then you are wrong. Some cats also love to play with balls. We have a couple of small soft balls that our cats play with in the house.
The Tower of Tracks has three different ‘tracks’ or circles in which a ball is placed. The cat can try to move one of the three balls around the track.
This can lead to hours of fun each day.
Kong Refillable Catnip Toy
One of the best cat toys around are the toys of Kong. Kong has a variety of toys, such as balls, but most importantly Kong has refillable catnip toys. The refillable Catnip toy is a toy with a little belly in it that sticks together either through a zip or Velcro tape.
This toy comes with a catnip refill tube with a good amount of catnip to keep the toy fresh for each use. Most cats simply love catnip and might eat it up or drool it under. After such heavy use, it can be useful to refresh the load.
Luckily catnip can also be bought in a separate container, so you can still refill the toy after you ran out of catnip.
Cat Toys Collection
When you really do not know what to get for your cat or someone else’s cat, you might want to consider to order a Cat Toys Collection.
This cat toys collection contains anything from cat mice to balls to stringy toys and catnip pillows. Loads of fun for the entire coming year for a cat.
It can be a good idea to not introduce all 20 toys at the same time, as your cat wouldn’t know what to play with first. Also it is very likely all 20 cats toys will end up underneath a sofa or cupboard.
I hope our guide to last-minute Christmas shopping for cats has helped you and that you and your cats may have a fantastic Christmas celebration!
