    1. A pair of pet grooming gloves, because we know how some cats get with brushes. These gloves mimic regular touch so your cat will be none the wiser. Unless, of course, they hate being pet. Aren't cats the best?

    2. Matatabi cat chew sticks that are a perfect alternative for those kitties who don't really like catnip. Just rub some of the bark off the sticks to release the natural oils and watch your cat play away! Bonus: It also helps maintain healthy teeth!

    3. A package of litter box liners made from heavy-duty plastic so you don't have to worry about the bag tearing and used litter falling everywhere. My worst nightmare, honestly.

    4. A self-warming pet bed that your cat will probably sleep in 24/7. I have one of these for our cats and it's been claimed by the oldest. They just love the warmth!

    5. A UV black light flashlight to detect any hidden accidents your cat may have caused. Is there anything worse than smelling cat pee and not finding the source? Not anymore!

    6. A set of silicone pet food can covers that will keep their food fresh while your fur baby waits (impatiently) for their next meal. "I know you just fed me, but I'm actually starving again soo..." —Your cat (and my cat, Norman).

    7. A cat hammock with suction cups so you can install it on any window (preferably the one with the prettiest view) so your kitty can bask in the sun rays in their own little space. Oh to be a cat lounging in the sun.

    10. A cat groomer so your lil' stinky baby can groom and (hopefully) brush their loose hair off themselves for once. Plus, you can fill it with catnip to attract them to it! 😻

    22. A pet dander–reducing spray for those people who are ridiculous cat lovers but also have some allergies to them, like my fiancé. He'll snuggle Norman all night, even if it makes him sneeze. It's also amazing for your cat's dry skin and will provide serious relief from their dandruff issues.

    23. A cardboard cat scratcher so your feline buddy has a place to relieve stress, get healthy claws, and maybe even save your furniture! RIP that old recliner.

    25. A natural cat deterrent spray for when you need to keep the kitties away from certain places, like rugs, couches, or even your headboard, that they continue to climb and ruin. OK, it's my cat.

    26. A pack of calming chews that use the natural power of colostrum, L-theatine, and thiamine to ease their nervousness. Now I need one for my anxiety and we'll be golden.

    29. A cat scratcher you can hang on a doorknob so your cat can stretch their little limbs up like you know they love to do. It mimics tree bark ~and~ has catnip infused into it. Does it get any more purrfect?
