    A case of lickable cat treats

    Promising review: "My cat is 18 years old and a very fussy eater. There are plenty of times when she will only lick the gravy from a can of cat food and not touch the meat. So when Lil' Soups came out, I thought they would be perfect for her if only she liked them. Well, I didn't have to worry, because she goes nuts for these! This was the first time I tried the Skipjack Tuna flavor (senior formula), and she loves it. There is nothing left in her bowl. It is completely clean." —Cherokee   

    Price: $7.87+ (available in three sizes)

    2. A senior cat litter box that sits low and is easy to climb into so your little purrince feels independent enough to go to the potty all on his own.

    Promising review: "My 18-year-old cat has back problems and is unable to climb or jump. He struggled to get over the threshold of his old box. This is the perfect solution. He can get in and out with relative ease." —Linda 

    Price: $31.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors) 

    3. A stainless steel cat fountain so your ol' friend can drink, play, and wash her paws to her heart's content. Plus, you can also control the fountain's water flow, keeping puddles to a minimum. Score!

    Promising review: "My cat was causing a wet mess splashing around in his water bowl since he insisted on drinking moving water. He is drinking constantly out of this bowl now, and not splashing his dirty little paws in it! It’s also large enough for my German Shepherd to drink out of, so everyone is happy."—cmski

    Price: $69.95 (originally $99.99)

    4. A soft-sided carrier bag — which is also roomy and spacious — so your senior won't be giving you major cattitude once it's time for their checkup. And if your cat has aching joints, not to worry; this carrier's soft Sherpa lining will keep their tush comfortable throughout the car ride.

    Promising review: "Our three babies absolutely love these carriers. So much so we leave them out and open because they love playing and napping in them. Plenty of room for them to lay all the way down and still move around. Easy to use and carry as well." —3xRescueMom   

    Price: $14.89 (originally $54.99) 

    5. A lounge scratcher with catnip so your senior sweetie will be feline good whether she's snoozing, scratching, or playing. Pro tip: If you have Maine Coon or Ragdoll, make sure you have three of these scratchers on hand. That way, your girl feels like the queen that she is.

    Promising review: "I've had this out for a few days, and it's been great so far. When I bought it, I didn't think it would actually be used as a lounger, but he loves to lay all over it. It's kind of like his home base — he attends to his cat business, does a quick scratch and lounge, then goes back to important cat matters and repeats." —Alana

    Price: $5.86+ (originally $9.99+; available in two colors) 

    6. A pack of squeezable cat treats that are so flavorful, your picky kitty will be begging you for more. PS: Since you'll be hand-feeding your elder these treats, you'll never have to ask Google if cats see their humans as slaves again.

    Promising review: "I got these for my in-laws' cat. She won’t eat ANYTHING ELSE except a little kibble here and there. We tried other brands of this “pudding,” and she turned up her nose every time." —Rose    

    Price: $2.19+ (originally $2.56+; available in two sizes) 

    7. A pair of pet steps to help your senior get to your bed, reach the bathroom sink, or reach the cat tree that sits in front of the main window. These steps are also sturdy and reliable, so you won't have to worry about any trips or falls on the way up.

    Promising review: "This was purchased for my older cat Soli. She is having a hard time jumping up on the bed. It was easy to put together, and I love the different options of how to utilize the towers and platforms. I actually did not use the top tower, and I find her napping on the top platform often. Soli definitely recommends these steps for any fur child." —MamaD

    Price: $39.99 (originally $44.99)

    8. A thermal self-heated cat bed, so you not only achieve your personal goal of saving money on heat, but you'll also keep your fur baby's buns warm all winter long.

    Promising review: "My older cat loves that her basket bed is now lined with this pad. She now sleeps the whole night in HER bed. She cuddles with me, and then off to her bed she goes. I also have the larger pad in her travel box, which stays on the protected patio for outside time naps."—Chechesmom

    Price: $16.46+ (available in two sizes)

    Promising review: "My cats NEVER like the cat beds I buy them. I buy them cute, or expensive, or elegant, or winners. They ignore the beds and sleep next to them. Until this Frisco Ortho! I am very happily surprised that both cats sleep in it! And it looks really expensive, even goes with my decor. Win-Win (except I'm probably going to have to buy a second one for my other cat)!"— braven   

    Price: $39.99+ (available in two colors and three sizes)

    Promising review: "My cat has so much fun with this! At first, I thought it would be too big for him, yeah, but he quickly figured it out. It's nice to be able to put that many treats there and not have to remember to fill it in on almost a daily basis like my last cat treat toy." —Lorelei5202

    Price: $19.99

    11. A slicker brush for cats — which self-cleans thanks to retractable pins — for making grooming fast and painless, so you have more time for head-scratchies, belly rubs, and hide-and-seek.

    Promising review: "This brush is genuinely the best. Not only does it allow you to fully remove all of the hair from the brush with the push of a button, but it actually picks up a LOT of hair! My old brush was average at actually picking up hair. I can’t explain why, but my cat actually loves this brush, and he always used to run away from the old one. Now, he walks over to where I keep the brush and will meow when he wants to be brushed. This brush is so good that I bought one for my aunt’s cat, and it’s come up in casual conversation with friends. Buy the brush — you won’t regret it." —Mariya

    Price: $13.41 (originally $14.99)

    12. A senior cat tower because if your rescue loves to people-watch — or sunbathe — from the living room window, he'll be able to reach the top of it in four steps.

    Promising review: "This tower is great for older cats that can no longer jump. Our cat could no longer get to the top of her tree. But now she is able to enjoy getting up again. This tree is perfect!" —TAZZY

    Price: $53.97 (originally $60.99; available in two colors) 

    13. A bag of unscented non-clumping crystal cat litter that keeps muddy paws caused by clumps, controlling odors, and waste at bay.

    Promising review: "My diabetic cat LOVES this litter! He visits three litter boxes and has no trouble using this light, effective litter mixed with a little Dr. Elsey's Classic clay litter. It is also lighter for me to carry upstairs from the basement, where I scrub and refill his litter boxes." —Kath 

    Price: $19.49

    14. A tower of tracks cat toy that provides hours' worth of fun, so you can finally get Mr. Sleepycat to get out of his bed for once.

    Promising review: "I bought these for a younger cat that likes to swat loose pieces of kibble across the hardwood floor. He loves them, but more surprisingly, so does my 16-year-old, who I haven't seen play in over a year. I'd definitely buy these again." —Jenn 

    Price: $2.09 (originally $4.99)

    16. Senior multivitamin chews that are soft on teeth and jam-packed with vitamins and minerals, and also taste like cat treats — your finicky feline won't be able to tell the difference.

    Promising review: "It doesn't happen every time, but when we have a new foster cat join us, sometimes there can be some turmoil. It is always minor, but once we get out these diffusers and plug them in where the cats are most social, it calms everyone down!! We stand by this product." —FosterCatHouse

    Price: $24.99 (originally $29.99)

    Promising review: "I bought this to place under the cat water fountain because they like to dip their paws in the water and shake them off as they clean. I bought the large one, and I’m glad I did because there is water all over it! It works just fine for my needs."—CatMom

    Price: $10.80+ (available in two sizes and two colors) 

    20. Annnd a large-sized mat for cat litter and liquid messes because if your furry loved one has trouble making it to the bathroom on time, rest assured that this mat will soak up her messes and can be easily rinsed off afterward.
