    Just 29 Problem-Solving Things From Amazon You’ll Probably Want If You’re A Cat Owner

    From an adorable water fountain to hairball-relief gel, you'll find loads of goodies that will make your and your cat's life better.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A flower-shaped water fountain so your fur baby can get hydrated whenever they very well please. The fountain features a pump that disperses three liters of water with three different speed settings to choose from — and since it comes with a triple-action filter, you don't have to worry about your kitty sipping any impurities in the process.

    The cat water fountain

    Promising review: "All five of my fur babies love this little guy. They took to it immediately, no hesitation at all. Even though they have never had a fountain to drink from before. The pump is whisper quiet and provides a nice flow over the little flower. The filter needed to be rinsed out after a week, but like I said I have five cats, so cat hair is pretty much a seasoning in my house." –TheRedhead

    2. A pet hair broom to keep your floors as tidy as possible while living with kitties. After all, let's be real, cats shed — A LOT. Thankfully, this rubber-bristled broom works on all surfaces to attract loose pet hair, ultimately leaving floors tidier than you probably thought possible as a cat owner.

    The pet-fur broom

    Promising review: "Within three quick minutes of using this, I had a disgusting pile of hair and dirt scraped from the surface of my 7x10 area rug. WHERE HAS THIS THING BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!? Then I decided to try the carpet in our bedroom. It was a little bit tougher to 'sweep' but equally effective. And finally, I decided to use the squeegee side, dry, on our wood laminate flooring just to see how it worked. Within three strokes I had dirt, hair, and the tiny irritating kitty litter sand granules piling up on the floor. Amazing! I was giddy. I wouldn't hesitate to give this 6 stars if I could!" –R. Walker

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    3. A handheld pet hair remover so you don't have to be perpetually covered in hair just because you love snuggling up on your kitties. The eco-friendly design doesn't use sticky papers — just swipe it over and over again and be mesmerized by just how well it lifts pet hair from fabric.

    Promising review: "I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair. I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights 'things cat people need.' It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the one-directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way and make a mess, it's the best. I don't have any before pictures because as soon as I started rolling stuff I went crazy. Look at my couch!! Look behind my blinds! 😻 Worth $25. Seriously." –Meowser

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    4. A self-groomer cat toy that makes keeping your kitty's fur soft and smooth easier than ever. The best-selling brush clips onto the wall so that your fur baby can brush up against it. Little do they know, that inkling to nuzzle up will actually save you from having to brush them as much. Win-win.

    reviewer photo of the self-grooming cat toy

    Promising review: "I got this for my three-legged cat because he can't scratch his left side. He'll be trying to scratch and all you see is his little nub going crazy. I found these and he immediately LOVED it! The expression on his face when he first tried it was priceless. The only downside is that it's possible it'll fall off because it was hard for me to get all pieces of tape to stick on a corner at the same time, but I can always buy more double sided tape so not a big deal to me. The product is for Floyd, not me, and he's happy so 5 stars." –Pippa Runs

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    5. A bottle of Burt's Bees pet dander spray so your kitty can have a beauty routine, too! The spray is designed to leave cats' coats smooth, shiny, and hydrated with little to no pet dander in site.


    Promising review: "I decided on this product over all of the other dander reducing products because I’ve always been a fan of Burt’s Bees for myself, and if I trusted the brand for me, I’d trust it on the king of our household. I was actually surprised how much my cat LOVES this spray. I was certain he would run and hide as it’s in a spray bottle. Instead, when I grab the bottle and his brush he runs up to me and follows me with ALMOST the same excitement as when I tap a can of wet food. He now loves being brushed, and his dandruff has significantly improved within only a few uses. Sometimes I forget to use this product for a week or so and his dry skin comes back but improves almost immediately. I wish I thought to take before and after pictures. Instead, here’s just a picture of my handsome fella!" –Amazon Customer

    6. Temptations hairball-control cat treats to entice your fur baby with a snack that does far more than feed their hunger cravings. The tasty little chicken-flavored treats are designed to prevent furballs, so your cat might just finally stop yakking after every meal.

    The fan-favorite cat treats

    Promising review: "I rescue kitties and use Temptations to train my babies to come in from their enclosure when it is time to come inside. They LOVE this flavor and will come running when I shake the pouch! The hairball bombs have all but stopped...which actually surprised me because most products, while tasty for the kitties, do not deliver on the hairball promise. This works and I highly recommend!" –Linda K

    7. Stackable pet food containers that will make storing your cat's food, treats, and small toys more organized than ever. And, since the larger container has wheels, you'll be able to shimmy the stack throughout the house instead of trying to lug it around.

    The stackable pet food containers

    Promising review: "We bought our storage containers a couple of months ago and love it. We’re in a woodsy area so sometimes bugs/mice just happen and I am not okay sharing with them. The containers hold everything securely and I’ll buy another in a heartbeat if this one ever breaks. Pros: It has two containers so you can store two types of food (or treats). The wheels make the container easy to move. The small container fits on top of the big one, and the groves in the lid keep it in place. The scooper is big and has lines telling you how much food you’re scooping. Cons: A 30-pound bag of food won't fit in the container, so go smaller. " –Jessica O.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.74.

    8. A pre-portioned cat food dispenser so your kitty doesn't overeat in one setting. This will prevent them from eating way too fast!

    The pet feeder

    Promising review: "Our cat has done everything her little mind can think of to this poor feeder. Every time we come back from a trip, there are a few more claw and bite marks on it, but it holds strong. She's even tried to sit on it, but it's done nothing more than presumably horrify it a little. She used to move around the bowl so when feeding time came she could put her head where the chute is and feel the food rain down her head like Augustus Gloop in the chocolate factory. She hates her food now so she languidly watches it pour into the bowl. I do know that you have to re-program the timer because it does lose a little time, which is a pain, but it has successfully passed the trial for several months now. I would recommend this for anyone who has a cat who is consumed with eating and getting food, her persistence has defeated every other one we have tried. Yes, it is expensive; yes, it is absolutely worth it." –BMoney

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    9. A Bissell SpotBot to save you from having to crouch down on your hands and knees to clean up your cat's accidents. Hey, you might love them, but that doesn't mean you have to get that hands-on with their potty spots and coughed up hairballs. Simply use this best-selling pet stain remover and your floors and upholstery will look good as new.

    The Bissell Spot Bot Pet Cleaner

    Promising review: "I guess I would liken the performance of this little doozie to another item advertised on television 'Just set it and forget it.' Yes, after you put the necessary liquids into the tanks, you find yourself a stain and turn it on and walk away. Even a urine stain that has been on my carpet, literally for years, has disappeared. And it smells great. I don't know what they put in that cleaner but it leaves a fresh clean scent like no other. When the machine beeps, you know your spot is gone. I must admit however that we did know about this machine from the longstanding use of its predecessor. We had the older version for 25 years before it finally went to spot bot heaven. If this one lasts that long it will almost outlive us." –Trejofan

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    10. A bag of Feline Greenies Pill Pockets so your cat won't catch on every time you're trying to feed them their medication. If you have a finicky cat, let it be known that these tasty indented treats will make taking care of them easier (and yummier!) than ever.

    The pill pocket feline Greenies treats

    Promising review: "These Pill Pockets make life so much easier! Saves a twice a day fight! It only takes a second to place the pills inside and pinch shut. My cat loves the treat! In five months he's only managed to get the pill out of the treat once but I think it was the end of the bag when the treats may become less moist. Be sure to seal the bag well after using to keep the treats as fresh and pliable as possible. I can fit about two small pills max into each treat." –Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.17/month; available in two flavors and two sizes).

    11. A box of scented litter to keep your home smelling fresh. The clumping litter works not only to make the room smell downright delicious (you have Febreze to thank for that), it also makes for less waste, as the litter clumps around bathroom matter so that you only have to sift out what's been soiled as opposed to the whole tray.

    The Hawaiian-scented Cat Litter

    Promising review: "OH. MY. GOSH. This cat litter is AMAZING! I received my item on its scheduled day and it arrived in perfect condition. Recently, I have been having litter box issues with my cat so I bought this and mixed the cat litter with Fresh Step Litter Attractant and my cat is no longer pooping on the floor (full explanation of the situation on MidnightAndI Youtube channel). This cat litter is the best ODOR ELIMINATING cat litter I have ever used! I didnt even know my cat used the litter box until I checked it. Thats how well it covers the smell! I have never experienced this with NO. OTHER. CAT. LITTER. No matter how scented it is. I am DEFINITELY buying another box of this stuff!" –MidnightandI

    Get it from Amazon for $9.54 (available in two sizes and four scents).

    12. An interactive feather wand for kitties who could use a little more movement in their lives. These fun feathers are sure to get your fur baby up and bouncing around, pawing with delight every time the toy is brought out.


    Promising review: "Very high-quality product. So far we've used this with our cat for maybe a collective two hours. The wand is equivalent to a fishing pole in material, so it's bendy without fear of snapping. The string is thick and has no sign of fraying yet. I was hesitant about the feather toy at the end since feathers are so fragile, but so far our cat has only managed to break off one-half of one of the feathers; the rest of it still looks new. I'm sure the feather thing will last us a long while before we'll feel the need to replace it with one of the three others. I also like that there is a little bell attached, so it immediately gets our cat's attention even if she isn't looking at us. I greatly enjoy watching my six-year-old daughter giggle maniacally as she makes our cat perform acrobatic leaps in an attempt to grab the feathers." –Ashley Doll

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    13. A fun three-level cat toy to keep your fur baby endlessly occupied — aka focused in one place as opposed to running all over the house. The interactive game features balls on tracks that cats just love to bat around. Take it out of the packaging and just watch how they react. They'll be thrilled!

    The interactive cat toy

    Promising review: "I have four kittens who are enjoying this, even days after the purchase. I find if I remove this and some of their other toys from their playing area for short while, the kittens seem to get interested in the toys again... I gave it a 5-star review for many reasons. First, it is larger than the other cat roller toys I have found. Second, it has kept my kittens from getting into TOO much trouble. LOL. It is well worth the price. We ALL are enjoying it." –SunFish

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

    14. A purring cat toy that will make your kitty feel like they're never alone. The touch-activated toy purrs for two minutes after every touch and has been applauded for how calm and comforted it makes cats feel.

    Promising review: "We had a loving cat for many years and two years ago added a kitten. The two had a good relationship and it was common to find them sleeping curled up together or grooming each other. A couple of months ago our oldest got cancer and we had to put him to sleep. Our 'kitten' was confused and would meow pitifully (asking where her buddy went if you ask me). She was not eating or playing like normal, either. Thank goodness for Prime! When I got this, I put it in 'their spot' where they most often curled up together. She wasn't sure about it at first, but within 12 hours our little 'kitten' was curling up with this and purring right along with it! She stopped her 'crying', started eating and playing like normal again and a couple of weeks ago she pushed this soothing toy over the edge to the floor. We put it back a couple times, only to find it on the floor again. For now we're just leaving it on the floor in case she decides she needs that extra comfort, but I think she's moved past that stage of grief that this wonderful item helped her navigate through!" –CTCMEGASUSS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three styles and four colors).

    15. A waterless cat bath so you don't have to drench your fur baby much to their displeasure. The top-rated foam cleanses and conditions fur so your cat will look and smell fresh as can be, all without getting uncomfortable in the process., Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay. My cat, despite getting bathed frequently, still manages to smell like a combination of mouth, belly button lint, and floor. I bathed her with this tonight and she smells like a spring baby. I can't stop huffing her soft head. I didn't think it was possible to love her any more, but I'm a changed man. This stuff rocks." –J. Ham

    Get it from Amazon for $6.35.

    16. A roomy pet carrier because your kitty deserves to travel in comfort, obviously. The top-rated carrier features a zip-front closure as well as a top opening for your kitty to peek their head out of — you know, so long as they're not one to jump out if left open.

    The pet carrier

    Promising review: "I have a 20-pound, 13-year-old diabetic cat who haaaaaaates going to the vet. So, in an attempt to make her as comfy as possible, I purchased this carrier. The day it arrived I unzipped it and set it on the floor and found her sleeping in it hours later. My vet even commented on how nice it was. She has to go in every so often for them to test her glucose levels and they don't even have to take her out of the carrier, they just unzip the top portion and can draw blood easier that way, since she can't really escape (or bite them like she did the first visit without this carrier)." –SaraPo

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in two colors and sizes).

    17. A self-warming pet bed so your kitty can feel cozy and snuggled up even if you're not home. The plush, sherpa-lined bed has a Mylar interior layer that reverberates your pet's heat so that they stay warm and comfy as can be.

    The self-warming cat bed

    Promising review: "We bought this bed, and our cat showed no interest in it. We sprayed it with Cat Nip, and nothing. Not interested. Then, I picked the cat up while he slept, and placed him in the bed. He slept in it for three hours, and he loved it! This is perfect for him! Though he is a slender and long cat, he curls up and still fits in it. I will buy another." –Rosemary Knight

    Get it from Amazon for $31.51 (available in three styles, five sizes, and two colors).

    18. A catnip-filled chew toy to teach your kitty to stop chomping on furniture or other items around the house. After all, cats teeth too!

    The chew toys

    Promising review: "I bought these to try and teach my ragdoll to bite the toys, instead of me but he didn't really seem to care. I gave them to my calico instead and oh boy, oh boy. These are the ultimate kitten toy (she's 5, not actually a kitten). She LOVES the one she's got, bites it, kicks it, chases it. She's very picky with her toys so glad to find one she really likes. It stays in bed with us. She will not let it onto the floor because she doesn't want the ragdoll to have it." –Alexis Auer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (available in three options).

    19. An interactive cat laser so you can keep your hyperactive cat entertained even when you're busy. The automated laser toy shoots a laser every which way to keep your cat focused on one general vicinity of your home. The result? Less kitty-related chaos throughout the rest of your house.,

    Promising review: "One of the best features of this cat laser specifically is that it automatically comes on. Every other single cat laser I looked at had to be manually pressed to activate. What about the hours you spend away from home with no one to press the button? That’s a lot of playtime missed out on.... or made up on my couches. I believe this laser was advertised to automatically activate every three hours, but I swear it activated again in under an hour." –Gutierrez Family

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    20. A bin of oven-roasted chicken flavored treats for finicky cats who need a little extra inspiration to run to their bowls at mealtime. These tasty treats won't only entice your cat to eat, they will clean their teeth while doing so, too. Double-whammy!

    The dental treats

    Promising review: "My cat is so obsessed with these. He acts like a crazed kitty when I even stand anywhere remotely close to the cupboard where he knows I keep them. And they really have made a noticeable improvement on his plaque buildup above and beyond his daily tooth brushing alone. My cat loves them so having them in bulk is never bad, and the container is a great size/shape so, once empty, it might make a nice container to reuse for any variety of things... if the plastic is BPA-free, which is doesn't say. Well, off to email the company again and ask." –Krystal

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48 (available in four sizes).

    21. A stain and odor eliminator spray that will make cleaning up after your cat less stressful. Not only will the fast-acting spray nix the scent on the spot, it will fully lift the actual spot, too.

    The odor-eliminating spray

    Promising review: "I've tried Nature's Miracle advanced formula and This Rocco & Roxie formula. Rocco & Roxie works every time. It completely eliminates the odor. Not only does it work for cat pee but armpit odor removal in shirts, too! Rocco wins against the other brand. It crushed the competition!" –Katherine Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $18.97/month).

    22. Bissell Stomp 'N Go Pet Lifting Pads for folks who prefer to remove pet stains and odor with as little effort as possible. Simply unpeel one of these pads, lay it on the spot, stomp it in place, and let it work its magic for the next 24 hours. If reviewers' experiences are worth any consolation, you're sure to be wowed.

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet that has accidents in the house, these are a MUST-HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it any more thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." –Lisa Koivu

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    23. Lickable wet cat treats so older fur babies can still enjoy a tasty snack. The little packets are filled with tuna and chicken flakes in a creamy sauce, so you will have to put it in their bowl as opposed to feeding them their treat right out of your hand.

    The Bisque Wet Cat Treats

    Promising review: "A year ago our 18-year-old Maine Coon was wasting away and seemed like she wouldn't be with us much longer. We tried wet foods and she wasn't interested. Then we discovered bisque! She is now 19 and doing much better now. We give her two bisque packets a day as well as her regular food. It's the highlight of her day and she will yell at everyone when she thinks it's time for bisque. Highly recommended!" –Columbia Maryland

    Get it from Amazon for $10.96 (available in two sizes).

    24. An assortment of interactive cat toys to keep hyperactive kitties entertained for hours (okay...more likely minutes) on end. The set comes with a fun tunnel and 20 other fun toys, including feather toys, a teaser wand, crinkle balls, bells, and more.

    The interactive cat toys

    Promising review: "Best bargain on Amazon! My cats immediately started playing with their toys. I hid a couple in boxes, and sprinkled catnip on a couple of others. All the toys are high-quality and unique! My cats give them a 'paws-up!' " –R. Park

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    25. A multi-level cat condo that will make your cat feel like the ruler of the roost. The treehouse features a number of different perches, scratching posts, and hideaway cubbies for your cat to entertain themself all day long. Worth it? We think so!

    Promising review: "First, the size. Everyone complained that this was for small kittens and not up to 'medium-sized' 10-pound cats. I think some of you may be in denial about your cat's battle with morbid obesity and might need a reality check on what 10 pounds is. My seven-pound cat habitually hangs out on a 3" window sill. The condo is PLENTY big enough for her. Second, the Instructions. They are pictorials, no written instructions. Apparently for some, this is hard to comprehend. I must be of above-average intelligence because it took me less than an hour to assemble with the assistance of my 6-year-old. Lastly, stability. If it's not stable you didn't do something right. I feel confident if it were big enough it would hold your 35-pound cat and not tip over. It is very heavy and the screws tighten nicely and easily." –Avery

    Get it from Amazon for $56.48.

    26. A bag of RawBoost cat food toppers to entice your kitties to actually want to eat. If your fur baby regularly gets tired of their kibble, these meaty boosters will bring back their interest.

    The freeze-dried treats

    Promising review: "My two cats LOVE these treats — little puffy bits of freeze-dried chicken (their fave) or other tasty flavors. I first bought the Instinct Raw Boost dry kibble on the recommendation of my neighborhood pet shop owner. The boys liked it better than the cheap stuff. They loved the boost bits so much, they'd dig those out first, and then they'd get all disappointed when there wasn't any left. They'd poke around & look up at me like those big-eyed cat posters. It was funny. Next time I was in the store, I saw a package with just the treats, and what a revelation it was! I still buy their kibble, but I buy the treats to sprinkle on or use to get them to do tricks for me. We'll be joining the Cat Circus soon... or the astronaut program. We haven't decided yet, but we're training hard! Miles recommends these as the perfect post-catnip munchie. Mingus prefers the natural high of devouring them sans nip." –P. Colley

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in four flavors and three sizes).

    27. A cute little recovery suit for kitties who need to heal from surgery or skin issues. Instead of making them wear a dreadful e-collar, put one of these cozy suits on them so that they can heal in comfort.

    The cat pre-suit

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this a THOUSAND stars!!! My poor kitten wore that horrible cone for two days before I started the hunt for an alternative. Can’t believe this didn’t occur to me the day of her spay or before. This poor baby is so small, that the heavy cone made her not really want to move. We had to hold her bowls up so she could eat and drink because she couldn’t reach them in the cone. She would sit with me just so I could hold the weight of it up off of her neck. I RAN to the mailbox when this arrived today, ripped the package open, and took that horrible cone off. It took me 30 seconds to get the suit on her, and she has been bathing for a hour since she couldn’t with the cone. Now she’s rolling around on the carpet loving life. I will be INSISTING that my vet tell others about this. This should be the FIRST option given to pet owners for abdominal surgery recovery." –Corinati

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

    28. A bottle of Omega 3 drops to help support your aging cat's coat and joints. Simply squeeze a few droplets of the oil into their food and let the vitamin-rich support get to work.

    Omega 3 Pet Oil

    Promising review: "Please understands that cats tastes vary. As for my cats she likes this fish oil. I put about 10-12 kibbles on a plate and put 6-7 drops of oil on them. She licks the plate clean. Her flaky skin is now gone and her coat is shiny and silky smooth. I now only give her drops 1 week per month for maintenance. I think this might be helping to lessen her fur balls issues too. She has cancer and at every visit the vet remarks on how great her coat is despite her illness. Hopefully your cat will also find it tasty." –Good Golly Gosh

    Get it from Amazon for $13.56.

    29. A tube of hairball-relief gel that will make your kitties feel so, so much better. The gel can be applied to their paws or added to their food and is designed to eliminate and prevent hairballs. Just remember that it's made for cats more than 4 weeks old.


    Promising review: "I have three cats. And but for the grace of the powers that be, they were born sans thumbs so they can't help clean up the piles and piles of puke they can produce in a regular day. There was a time this summer that I wondered if one of them was bulimic. I remembered one of our vets had given us something like this for previous complaints of cat puke city. *knock on wood* So far so good, no puke since using it. It's easy to apply. Smear it on your cat's front paws. They will lick it all off because cats will always cat. And that includes cleaning themselves. Try to vary your routine though if your cat gets a little anxious about it. They are smart. Once they see you coming, you'll have no hope. You CAN live cat vomit-free. You really can." –Tricia
