    Just 34 Gifts To Buy Your Cat (Because They Deserve The World)

    And the best part is they don't even know what/when Christmas is... so you can give 'em these gifts whenever you please 🎄 🎁

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

    1. A three-tier cat toy with polka-dotted balls they can bat at. One of my cats puts her arms on both sides and essentially plays a modified version of tetherball just with herself.

    2. A cat dancing toy that literally costs less than $3 (it's just a steel wire with some rolled cardboard on the end) but proves IRRESISTIBLE to kitty babies the world over.

    3. A box of Lil' Soups so when you order a three-course takeout meal, your cats can also partake in appetizers of their own.

    4. An interactive treat maze for high-energy cats who could use a lil' mental stimulation. It even has three levels of difficulty — beginner, intermediate and top-cat — so you can switch things up as their hunting skills improve.

    5. A three-story cat tree so your kitties can spy on the neighbor's children, or — in my case — the Ecuadorian food truck that's always bumping just a stone's throw from my apartment.

    6. Or a multilevel tower that you'll both love as there's plenty of room to play, but it could also easily pass an industrial bookshelf instead of a cat condo.

    7. A trusty box of Greenies in oven-roasted chicken flavor, because if there's one thing your cat loves more than endless pets, it's the sweet, sweet sound of a shaken treat container.

    8. A pack of all-natural matabi chew sticks — a catnip alternative that's somehow even more tantalizing than anything they've tried before.

    9. A tunnel bed if your bb's love for toys is only surpassed by one other thing: sleep.

    10. A refillable catnip mat for lazy lil' kitties who rather roll around on the floor than get in some cardio chasing after a robotic toy.

    11. A catnip-filled carrot your fur child can bunny-kick as hard as it wants. That way, your arm (or other cat) can catch a break.

    12. An interactive feather and mouse game that's basically like Whac-A-Mole for your cat. Lucky for them, they don't have to hunt down a carnival or pay $5 a pop to play.

    13. A window hammock with suction cups strong enough to hold 50 pounds. If you're thinking that seems like a lot, just consider how quickly the weight of multiple cats, a blanket, their favorite toys, and a pillow adds up.

    14. A catnip-filled fortune cookie so Kitty Purry can take part in takeout nights as well. Her fortune? The always sage "blame it on the dog."

    15. A pack of squeezable treats that are basically Gogurts — just in feline-approved flavors like tuna and chicken.

    16. An interactive tunnel and assortment of toys, because ~statistically speaking,~ you have a better chance of success when presenting your cat with 20 different toys instead of just one.

    17. A spherical Tuft + Paw hideout with a faux-fur blanket just your cat's size. If your bb is anything like mine, they'll hang out in there until you walk by at perfect swatting distance.

    18. A floppy robotic fish that only moves when your cat interacts with it. Once they get the hang of it, I guarantee they'll be karate chopping and bunny kicking the ish out of it.

    19. A banana-shaped bed for the pet who loves "hiding" under blankets and in cardboard boxes. The top flap — or, if we're talking anatomically, the peel — offers them a private and enclosed space to nap.

    20. A completely unnecessary but oh-so-fun sling so you can carry your cat around like the needy bebe they are.

    21. A $4 piece of string on a stick that will make your cat happier than any expensive electronic toy or even the box said toy comes in!

    22. A leopard turtleneck sweater to keep them cozy when temperatures dip. And — not to state the obvious — but to provide ample photos ops.

    23. A self-grooming toy if your baby needs 24/7 scritches and scratches and they just don't get the fact that you can't do that while you sleep/eat/use the bathroom.

    24. A "ripple rug" your kitty can burrow into, scratch as much as they like, and just generally just roll around on. The mat's non-slip rubber bottom keeps it in place and also allows you to prop it up in various configurations if your babies are a fan of tunneling.

    25. A fuzzy, purring cat toy that helps calm kitties with anxiety. If your pandemic babe simply can't be separated from you for any period of time, this is certainly worth a shot.

    26. A plush anti-anxiety donut bed with a raised rim that keeps your baby feeling nice and secure. The fluffy material also mimics fur, so it feels like they're cuddling their mom.

    27. An exercise wheel your kitty can turn to whenever they get the zoomies (aka every night at 3 a.m.).

    28. A macramé cat hammock so visually arresting, it may just convince your fur baby to give up the Amazon box they've been calling home for the last month. Since it's made out of a bunch of strings, I don't see how they wouldn't at least be intrigued.

    29. A zebra-print activity mat that looks exactly like a baby play mat and that just tickles me pink. If your kitten could use some tummy time, the attached hanging toys will keep them entertained.

    30. A Chewy Goody Box because what's better than a single new toy? A whole dang box of new toys and treats!

    31. A large catnip-spiked cotton swab if your lil' angel has an affinity for the real thing. Give them this and maybe, 🤞🏻just maybe, they'll stop pulling used ones out of the trash.

    32. A fruit tart bed any cat should be berry into. Not only does it provide a cozy place for them to cuddle up, but is also comes with a handful of lemon, kiwi, strawberry, and blueberry-shaped cushions they can attack as soon as they wake up from a nap.

    33. A UFO-shaped teaser with two 360-degree battery-operated butterflies and a track with two impossible-to-remove balls. The dual toy can be used as is or even separated if your kitty prefers to play with them individually.

    34. And a laptop-shaped scratcher if the last few years of WFH life have led your cat to believe that they *too* have a 9 to 5.
