    31 Things To Give Your Pet That'll Make Them Glassy-Eyed With Love

    Flavored bubbles, self-heating beds, edible plants, and more your pet will love.

    1. A soft, touch-activated purring cat toy to help anxious kitties by simulating the calming, familiar sensation of curling up to another purring cat. Your precious kit kat can snuggle up and finally relax, making this a source of loving comfort when you're away from home.

    The purr mechanism lasts two minutes before turning off automatically.

    Promising review: "I originally got this for my two kittens because I thought it might help their adjustment. But they never really needed it, and honestly the vibration sort of scared them a little. BUT then I had an opportunity to foster two scared 5 week old kittens. They were scared and hissy and generally anxious. I put this in with them, tapped it to make it purr, and they immediately climbed on it and curled up. It was so sweet! I sent it with them to their permanent home. Recently the adopter sent me a photo update, and lo and behold, there was one of them sitting with this purple thing. Still! Six months after being adopted. It’s still adorable and so I’m here, leaving a review. Because as it turns out, this thing IS comforting for the right cats. Mine didn’t need it, but boy was I glad to have it with the fosters. If you have an anxious kitty, maybe one that’s scared, it can’t hurt to try this. Even without the purring, they may find it comforting. And if not, well, maybe donate it to a local shelter. There are bound to be scared kitties in a shelter, who’d benefit from it." —Lisa Wannemacher

    Get it from Amazon for $6.15+ (available as a purple cat or blue sloth).

    2. And similarly, a Snuggle Puppy with a realistic heartbeat that's comforting to anxious and lonely dogs when they curl up next to it. It's especially helpful for lil' angels who are crate training, have separation anxiety, or get nervous traveling (or those in new homes). ❤️

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Samantha Wieder gave the Snuggle Puppy to her new pup, and it made a world of a difference: "Back in 2020, my family made a wonderful decision to get an adorable Havanese puppy named Bailey. He slept like an absolute angel the first night we brought him home so when he kept us up for six. whole. hours the night after and wouldn't stop crying the next day, we knew we needed to try something fast. A family friend recommended the Snuggle Puppy. Within a half hour of putting the little heart ticker into the stuffed toy and putting it in Bailey's crate, he was quiet and fast asleep while cuddling up to his new toy. 

    "Two years later, the Snuggle Puppy is still Bailey's favorite toy — we just don't keep the heart ticker in there anymore. He has an entire crate of toys he BARELY touches solely because he loves the Snuggle Puppy so much. It is on the pricey side for a dog toy and he's currently on his fourth Snuggle Puppy because he's chewed off the ears and noses on the other ones, but seeing how attached he is to the puppy and how happy it makes him, it's 100% worth it. Truly cannot recommend this enough."

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in three colors).

    3. An interactive, much-beloved cat toy to simply (literally?) knock your kitty off their feet. Prepare for all the other toys you've purchased over the years to pale in comparison.

    Promising review: "Simply the best cat toy you can buy. My cats go wild as soon as I pull this out. Nothing else gets them up and moving like this toy now that they’re getting older. Seems silly that they love a simple wire with a cardboard tip, but there’s something about it that’s irresistible. Buy it. Your cats will love it." —A customerrr

    Get it from Amazon for $3.53.

    4. A box of veterinarian-endorsed dog-friendly macarons made with fresh, human-grade ingredients like honey, oat flour, and strawberry yogurt filling to give your little princess or prince a taste of luxury that will make their sweet mouth water. BTW, unlike human macarons, these ones are healthy for pups to eat as a daily snack!

    They're also free of artificial coloring and preservatives.

    Promising review: "I got these treats for my dogs' birthdays. I have an English bulldog and a French bulldog, so obviously they have food allergies. They absolutely loved these treats! They are made with no grains, human-grade ingredients, and my dogs had no allergies or tummy problems! Bulldog stamp of approval!! Très bon!!!" —Chellbell78

    5. A canister of creamy lickable cat treats full of savory chicken and tuna deliciousness that kitties adore — and that are high in moisture to help prevent dehydration! The best part is that the treats are ~interactive~ — they're designed to be fed directly from the tube (like Go-Gurt, lol) to help support the bond between cat parents and their kitties.

    I've lived with several roommates who have cats, and every cat I've lived with has LOVED these. I really do feel that feeding them directly from the tube (that I do affectionally call their Go-Gurt) has helped me and the kitties become closer and build trust, because they are literally eating from my hand. Plus, they loooove the taste — they always want to keep licking the tube after it's empty! That said, the tubes are the perfect size for a snack. TL;DR: These are must-haves!

    Promising reviews: "My cat never eats treats, wet food, or any other item typical for most cats, but she loves these. She will follow me to the kitchen and she stands on her hind legs begging for these. Good moisture content, low fat, seems to be easy on the stomach. My kitty has pancreatic issues and this is a treat that she can eat." —stephanie

    "Doesn't get better than this. Absolutely wonderful. All five cats love this treat. Makes doing the chores they hate worthwhile so they can get the treat at the end (like grooming)." —M K

    Get it from Amazon for $34.49.

    6. suction cup hammock kitties or small dogs will *love* gazing out of and sunbathing in, with powerful window-suctioning capabilities and ample space.

    It's capable of holding up to 40 pounds of weight and has stainless steel cables that'll withstand chewing.

    Promising review: "I recently just moved out of my parents' place, where there were screened-in porches and large windows with easily accessible views for my cat, into an apartment that has few windows he can look out of. I bought this hoping it would give him a place to look outside and enjoy an afternoon nap. He typically never uses any cool stuff I buy for him, but as soon as he figured this out he fell in love with it! I find him most days lounging in it and watching all the animals that fly or walk by. I personally decked it out with a cozy blanket and some fake eucalyptus vine to make him feel like he’s in the wilderness. It’s easy to put together and hang and also comes apart easily. Would definitely recommend for an apartment kitty!" —Sara P

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. A delightful Wobble Wag Giggle ball with a battery-free internal noisemaker that'll engage your pup's curiosity and instinct to play. It has multiple ~clutch pockets~ so your pet can roll, carry, and shake the toy with ease. It's safe to say this will be your best game of fetch ever.

    Promising review: "WE FOUND IT! A play ball that can stand up to our 14-week-old part black Lab, part shark. We have tried several toys that would stand up to the extremely sharp teeth. Nothing has worked for over 15 minutes of intensive playtime. We heard about this ball from a fellow puppy owner and ordered immediately. Added bonus: She is exhausted after chasing this thing around, so nap time comes quickly." —james Bennett

    Get it from Amazon for $14.88+ (available in three styles).

    8. A mountable cat-grooming brush to act as a third scratching hand for some extra reinforcement to your baby's ❤️ ceaseless ❤️ demands for scratching. Just attach its adhesive to a corner and witness the joy.

    Promising review: "None of my cats like to play with toys and it was driving me wild! They have so much energy but would get bored with any toy within days. I tried rotating them and interactive toys, anything and everything for hours and at different times. There is nothing that has kept my cats busy like these grooming tools! I have literally never seen any of them sit and mess with something for more than a few minutes but my cats will rub on this for like 20 minutes at a time. This is 100% worth the money!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.93.

    9. A wall-mounted catnip toy sure to make you your kitty's favorite hooman. This fun groove board contains four all-natural flavored balls to delight and pique their interest — catnip, silvervine, gall fruit, and cat sugar. It can also help improve your feline's oral health by reducing dental plaque and odorous breath as they lick and bite the rotating balls.

    Promising review: "I have never seen my cat so happy! He really liked his flavor explorer toy! It has very good adhesion and you can place it where you prefer, even on the floor. I think it is an excellent purchase to see my cat super happy!" —Karla Villafuerte

    Get it from Amazon for $15.49 (also available as standalones not on the board).

    10. A bestselling bottle of canine- and feline-safe Sniffingtons flavored bubbles your babes will love chasing, catching, and popping (with no sticky residue left to boot). The bubbles come in tons of fun scents like cinnamon bun and birthday cake!

    Promising review: "I bought multiple flavors for my two border collies and they absolutely loved playing with them. Will definitely buy again! The wand is sturdy (he tried taking it out from my hand multiple times) and there’s a lot of solution compared to other dog-friendly bubbles I’ve bought for them. Also, I love how it doesn’t leave any sticky residue on their coats. 100/100 recommend!" —lineth garcia

    Get it from Sniffingtons on Etsy for $8.50 (available in 10 scents or unscented).

    11. A wall-mounted cat-capsule for cats who luuuuv to squish themselves into tight spaces and watch (look down on?) everyone else while high above the ground. Plus, you'll probably love this thing as much as they will — their little bodies in ~liquified~ form is as cute as it is hilarious.

    Promising review: "This product brings us endless joy. I installed it 8 feet off the ground and at first worried it was too high for the cats. I kept a small blanket in there and coaxed them in with treats so they’d get use to stepping into the curve. I eventually took the blanket out and now our youngest cat has claimed this as his spot and LOVES it. We love to see all the different ways he squishes his body into a liquid to sleep." —V

    Get it from Amazon for $99.98.

    12. A tunnel bed your cat will enjoy *so* much as both a delightful plaything to run around in and as a little cave they can nap or hide away in if they're tired of being ~perceived~ (relatable). There's also a plush bed in the center if they do want to surface for some love from their favorite human. ❤️

    Promising review: "My cats absolutely love this thing! When I was putting it together, my 20-pound tabby immediately went inside the tube, and did not come out for over an hour! It was easy to put together (even with a 20-pound cat inside lol). But, this entire thing set up is about 3 feet long. It is HUGE. Make sure you have room!! The material is surprisingly soft outside and inside the tunnel. And the light coloring allows light to filter through, which my cats like (I had a black tunnel that neither of them would go into). My smaller 10-pound tabby (black nose) LOVES to run around the house, and now he has added running a few laps inside this tunnel to his run lol. Both cats play in this ALL THE TIME. Both on the inside chasing each other, or one on the inside and one outside batting at each other. They use the tunnel as a good napping spot, and also a spot to hide from the vacuum or guests they aren't sure of. This has gotten soooooo much use from both cats. I would highly recommend this!!" —Trebeca

    Get it from Amazon for $39.50+ (available in four patterns).

    13. An adorable stuffed duck that's basically tear-resistant and that dogs L O V E. Since this thing is built 👏 to 👏 last 👏, your angel pup can snuggle with it well into adulthood — and you can stop spending oodles of money on toys that your babe destroys in less than 30 seconds. A win-win if there ever was one.

    Note that while the listing pictures all five colors, you'll only receive one color at random. 

    Promising review: "My dog Hazel LOVES this duck! She has had it for nine months now, and it’s still intact! It somehow made it through her teething as a puppy. She rips and tears apart all of her toys, but this one still looks decent!" —Emily Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $6.72 (also available in a mini size).

    14. An irresistibly cozy Aspen self-warming bed designed to heat to your pet's natural body temp, so they'll have a toasty warm resting place at all times without ever getting *too* hot. BTW, older pets and those with arthritis may find this bed especially soothing!

    Jenae Sitzes / BuzzFeed,

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Jenae Sitzes has this self-warming bed for her two cats, and they LOVE it. She writes: "This is THE cat bed, y'all. Neither of my cats have ever really taken to a cat bed and much preferred to doze on their cat tree or curl up on a regular blanket — until I finally caved in and bought the Aspen self-warming bed a while back. IMMEDIATELY upon placing it on my couch, one of my cats crawled into it and happily began napping. As soon as he moved away, my other cat jumped in to take it for a test run as well — and immediately curled up as well. After about a week of them taking turns using it (literally, the cat *not* in the bed would lay next to it waiting for the other to leave — my polite boys 🥹), I realized I needed to buy a second one. They immediately took to that one as well, and now, they both have access to their favorite bed whenever they like! 

    "Whenever I put my hand underneath them, I can definitely feel how warm they are underneath, so the bed's self-warming feature seems to work well. I think what they love most about it is the shape and how unbelievably cushy it is. And the sides of the bed are supportive enough for them to put their heads on, but still flexible enough for them to stretch out however they like. While the listing recommends this bed for cats under 10 pounds, larger cats will be just fine, as my older cat Sneaky is quite large (his affectionate nickname is 'Chonky'), and he adores this bed. Most of all, I love knowing they won't be cold at night, especially when I'm away from home. Knowing I'll never have to waste money on another cat bed that sits unused is just the cherry on top. Highly recommend!!"

    15. A hydro swirl spinning sprinkler that water-lovin' doggos will adore playing around in. Kids and adults can get in on the fun, too! PS: It'll also water your lawn at the same time. Is this the best toy ever?

    Promising review: "Bought this water toy mainly for my German shepherd. She's obsessed with water. We finally got a nice hot day with no rain, so I got it out of the box and set it up for her. She absolutely loves it." —ZoomT12

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. A ball launcher because your speed baby LOVES fetch and has the endurance of a cross country runner — and try as you might, your tired arms cannot keep up. Now you can throw farther, easier, and indulge your angel's absolute favorite activity until they FINALLY get tired.

    Promising review: "This is such a genius invention. I'm so happy I don't have to touch my dog's slimy tennis balls anymore, it's so gross. My arm was getting so worn out from trying to throw my dog's ball as far as I could but this thing allows me to chuck the ball all the way to the other side of the park, it's fantastic! My dog has never been more worn out in such a short amount of time, it's so helpful when I don't have time to take her for a long walk to get out her energy. Super happy with this product." —Kristi Merrill

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three lengths, with extra balls, and multiple styles).
