    Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    As you can see, my cat absolutely loves this bed. He lays in it every single day, for hours. The bottom has extra fabric which promotes burrowing and is honestly the coziest looking bed I have ever seen.

    Promising review: "While this may be listed as a dog bed, I have been in the market for a large cat bed that would accommodate both of my feline children. Words cannot describe how happy I am with this purchase! Both cats have anxiety and this calming bed always puts them at ease. If you are looking for an incredibly comfortable, high quality bed for your pet/pets, this is the one!" —Rozhope

    Matatabi is a plant native to the mountains Japan and China and grows like an ivy on trees and rocks. It is more commonly used in East Asia instead of regular catnip.

    Meowy Janes is a small New Jersey-based business that sells all natural catnip and alternatives such as whole Silver Vine fruit.

    Promising review: "This was one of the best products for my cats! They loved each stick every single time. Best money spent on this product! Hands down! I definitely recommend!" —Jesse Sanchez

    Get it from Meowy Janes on Etsy for $10.61

    3. Grooming gloves because aren't we tired of petting our cats and getting a huge wad of fur in our hands? At least with these bad boys, you can pet them *and* be productive!

    Promising review: "These are awesome!! They get the hair off our dogs while giving them a nice scratch at the same time! They are really sturdy and washable, whoever designed these is a genius! We love them!!" —Tim and Amy Jo

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04+ (available in three colors).

    4. A Chom-Chom roller to gather up pet hair from basically anywhere in your home. No really. Couches, clothes, bedding, cat towers, rugs — you name it. The best part? It has a little compartment that stores the fur for easy cleaning!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have had many different pet hair rollers and this beats everything hands-down. The compartment that traps the hair is genius. With many pet hair removal tools the hair sort of flies in the air a little, you have handfuls, or have to clean the brush on something....this baby traps the fur in a little compartment that is easy to empty. I sent links to this product to lots of my friends who are owned by cats and told them it will be life-changing." —DLB

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    5. A cord protector that'll keep your sneaky fur baby from nibbling on all of your cables around the house. If they even dare ruin my New Girl time...

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 14 sizes and three colors).

    6. A hidden litter box because if you own a cat, you know how unsightly litter boxes are. Like...it's a sandbox with poop in it. At least with this one, you can pretend your cat isn't pooping in front of you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Then I found this fantastic solution, someone made a litter box look like a potted palm fern! YOU GENIUS! This arrived in two halves that you have to look at carefully to slide together, the top rim fits into the slot around the bottom half. Then you put a thin foam piece down first on the top and then stick the palm into the top, it's one piece and you adjust the fronds. And the final bit is a baggie of shredded raffia for a nice grass mulch look. The cat loves it. It's big enough for my Maine Coon. And I face the entrance away from me, so all I see when I'm in the bathroom now is a potted plant. It's the best litter box on the planet!" —THX1138

    Get it from Amazon for $64.14 (available in two colors).

    7. A litter genie to save your nostrils from the wrath of cat pee. We know it. We hate it. Heck, even your cat hates it.

    amazon.com

    This pail holds up to 14 days worth of cat litter for one cat and has a pail that locks away germs and bad odors to keep your house smelling fresh all the time.

    Promising review: "This is a simple, yet genius, product. Scooping into grocery store bags was always a hassle because those bags inevitably have small holes, leaking litter everywhere. Plus, if you are scooping daily, it feels like a waste of a bag every day. The litter genie is relatively small and easy to store, easy to use, and traps smell very impressively." —Julia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    8. An electric heating pad because you'd be surprised at how much your pets love heat. It helps with arthritic issues, pregnant fur babies, and even when they're recovering from an injury. Norman absolutely loves his heated pad and lays on it every day, even in the summer.

    amazon.com

    With the time setting of 1–12 hours, it also has an auto-shutoff feature so you never had to worry about it staying on when you're not around. It also has seven layers of protection structure with UL-approved heating wire that will prevent your cat from getting burnt.

    Promising review: "He absolutely loves it! He's very comfortable and relaxed now, and sleeps very deeply on his bagel bed, with his heating pad tucked under his favorite little blankie. It's simple to use, heats up quickly, and I appreciate the automatic shut off." —MaryLeeM

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S-XL).

    9. A calming spray so you can spritz on areas where your cat likes to hang the most — you'll quickly see how much more relaxed they are when they're near that spot.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "All three of my cats have drastically reduced anxiety. It won't fix all your problems or change the entire temperament of a cat, but at least in my house all three cats are much more relaxed, they sleep better, they are friendlier towards me, and the non-recognition aggression from one visiting the vet is going away much faster with the spray than without." —Langley Renee

    Get it from Amazon for $3.09 or Subscribe & Save for $2.94/month.

    10. A diffuser to emit an odorless copy of ~pheromone~ around the room which will seriously help your feline buddy feel more comfortable and less stressed in their environment.

    amazon.com

    This diffuser can cover up to 700 square feet of space and lasts up to four weeks.

    Promising review: "I bought this starter kit in order to help her feel at ease in my apartment while I'm there and while I'm also away at work. I plugged this in last night and one hour later, my kitty was more relaxed! She sat on my lap, stopped swishing her tail (a clear sign of agitation/anxiety), and she just went back to her sweet old self." —Minoware

    Get it from Amazon for $28.98.

    11. A heated cat cave because if you own a kitty, you know how much they absolutely love to have a little space they can call their own to relax far away from all the noise. The "noise" being that pesky pup who just doesn't leave them alone. Ugh.

    amazon.com

    BTW, the heater is removable!

    Promising review: "I bought this for our very senior black cat because he needs a little more warmth and comfort especially in winter when his arthritis is uncomfortable. It turned out to be a big hit with all three of our cats. They have never shared a cat bed before, usually if one claims a bed it just ends up belonging to that one, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with this heated bed. They all have different sleeping preferences, but seem to agree on this pod. Honestly it shocked me a bit so I think it’s not too risky to try out! Personally I will probably buy more because they all love it so very much." —Alyak23

    Get it from Amazon for $67.99 (available in three colors and two styles).

    12. A cat dancer toy that'll unleash the ~inner tiger~ in your cat, giving them some exercise and mental stimulation. Yes, even Mr. Tinkles has a wild side...somewhere in there.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I started off reluctantly with one Cat Dancer Toy. That day, I ordered three much more expensive cat toys. I didn’t see how this thing could be that entertaining. A month later: we have three more toys. The more expensive toys may as well be nonexistent compared to the springy wires with cardboard thingies on the ends. I have to hide them.... on top of the fridge, under the pillows, under the couch. They especially love it when you drag them across the floor." —Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $2.95.

    13. A pet hair removal broom to make your jaw drop when you see just how much hair your little rascal has been shedding into the grasps of your rug's fibers. There is a rake side and a squeegee side which both effectively do the deed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a genius invention with a rubbery broom that catches everything! Today I didn't think the floor really needed to be swept, but the FURemover proved me wrong. I ended up with a big tumbleweed of dog hair and my hair and who knows what else? The handle telescopes far longer than I need (I'm 5'8") but the telescoping comes in handy when sweeping under the couch or other out-of-the-way places. This is a game-changer if you have a lot of fur or hair in your home. You must try this, I am so happy with this purchase!" —Frannie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    14. A macrame cat hammock that will match your impeccable bohemian vibes while also giving your kitty a place to ~chill~, reducing the piles of fur they create on your bedsheets from all their naps.

    Macrame Beautiful is a small business based in Beijing that sells stunning macrame pieces like planters, wall decors, and baskets.

    Promising review: "This is my second purchase and I will continue to buy!! The craftsmanship is so beautiful. It is evident she enjoys what she does.

My kittens love their hammock!" —Annie Zummo

    Get it from Macrame Beautiful on Etsy for $59.99+ (available in two styles and with one, two, or no cushions).

    15. A cat hammock with suction cups to install it on any window (preferably the one with the prettiest view), allowing your kitty to bask in the sun rays in their own little space without scratching up your furniture to see out the window. Oh to be a cat lounging in the sun.

    Promising review: "Easy to assemble and my cat enjoys being on there looking out. The suction cups are pretty sturdy." —Veronica

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    16. A hammock with steps so your cats can have a little bit of instinctual fun climbing around your walls to their new mounted bed. Plus, the steps are actually scratching posts, so you can protect your furniture! Woo-hoo!

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    17. A water fountain that will give David Meowie an even ~fancier~ way to drink water and *actually* drink it for once. They're older now, and it's time they live the life of luxury they've been expecting since they were kittens.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this fountain! I bought this because my cat is very finicky and very selective on how he drinks his water. This particular Fountain was a very good choice because it is completely silent. Even the water makes no splash as it falls. Its silence is the reason my cat trusts it and drinks from that Fountain exclusively. It comes with its own little free waterproof mats to protect the table or countertop from any drips that your cat leaves while drinking. The mat matches the fountain. It's an attractive pair. I very confidently give this product two strong thumbs up" —TLM

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in two colors).

    18. Nail clippers because cats and new couches are not a good combination. I'm looking at you, Norman. These bad boys offer a larger, softer grip area for better stability, making it easier to get through this painstaking task as smoothly as possible.

    Promising review: "These were a game-changer for my senior cat. He was getting his claws stuck with every step because he could no longer retract them. One easy clip and he’s walking with ease. So happy with these!" —Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    19. An organic spray designed to keep your cat's grubby little nails off of your furniture, rugs, and curtains once and for all.

    Verdure Well / Etsy

    Verdure Well is a small business based in Castle Rock, Colorado that specializes in organic plant-based wellness products such as scrubs, sprays, and cleaners.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that the ingredients are all natural and don't stain my furniture and rugs. The scent is also quite nice. My cat was scratching a new, expensive rug that I purchased for a remodel of my living room. He has not touched it since I have been using this spray. I have recommended this product very highly to friends who also have cats!" —Kmccart56

    Get it from Verdure Well on Etsy for $13.97+ (available in three styles).

    20. A self-groomer cat brush 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!

    amazon.com

    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 five stars." —Pippa Runs

    Get it from Amazon for $3.74.

    21. A waterless dry shampoo to help keep Picatso clean, smelling good, and looking sleek without having to do the whole "it's time to bathe the cat" fiasco we all dread.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a senior Maine Coon who no longer grooms himself as well due to arthritis and this foaming no-rinse shampoo has been a godsend. I put it on, rub it in, and when it's dry, I brush him out. He looks much better and I believe he feels better. It removes oil and dander. This along with Burt's Bees cat dander towels and he's looking quite handsome." —Nini

    Get it from Amazon for $6.50 or Subscribe & Save for $6.18/month.

    22. A pack of colorful springs so they can stop playing with those noisy plastic balls you regretfully bought them, not realizing how loud they actually are. Our cats absolutely ~love~ these springs. Sometimes I'll see them carry them all over and it's the cutest thing ever.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had to buy more of these spring toys because of their AWESOMENESS. They’re so light, springy and the best part is they’re QUIET, so no annoying jingle bell to hear. I’ve never seen a cat LOVE a toy so much. They bounce across my hardwood floors so easily and they 'boink' just as great on the carpeted areas of my house. My cat will literally play with these springs for hours. He has over 20 of them, so one can always be found when looking. If he’s not whacking them across the room he’s carrying one in his mouth or he is sleeping with one." —SquirrelGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $4.91.

    23. A litter attractant because sometimes it's not easy getting your kitten to figure out that's their new DPS (designated poop spot). *flashback to Norman as a kitten pooping on our white comforters*

    Promising review: "When I began using the product, my cat jumped into his litter box immediately. This has been a solution to our problem. I highly recommend this! I sprinkle it on top of litter." —Shannon

    24. A cat litter mat so you can minimize the amount of litter that ends up being tracked around the house and litter box.

    25. A litter box odor destroyer, because let's face it — sometimes these litter boxes are just dank.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is seriously amazing! I have three high-yield poop machines masquerading as cats, and it’s a never ending mission to make sure the house doesn’t smell like a litter box. I try really hard to ensure the house is clean and smells good without using harsh chemicals or aerosol sprays. Within the first day of using this I noticed that the slight lingering ammonia/ poop smell wasn’t noticeable when walking into the house anymore. After a few days I realized that I couldn’t smell anything even as I was scooping the three litter boxes. There wasn’t a fake perfume smell covering up a smell, there literally wasn’t a smell at all! The product smells very fresh and clean in the container but there’s no odor when applied into the litter." —Tori

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $11.37/month).

    26. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a lifesaver! I wish I’d discovered these sooner; it would have saved me several unpleasant litter box cleaning. It’s very sturdy and thick enough to withstand my cat’s feverish scratching and burying." —Gabriela

    Get it from Amazon for $2.88 or (Subscribe & Save for $2.74/month).

    27. An automatic litter box that will scoop up the litter just 15 minutes after your kitty uses it, keeping the house stink-free and you free from bending over to scoop the box every day. Human: 1 Cat: 0.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome! Our cat was part of a larger family of cats when we adopted her. She never learned out to cover her mess, because the other cats did it for her. She would just scratch the plastic sides of the litter box like a doofus not doing the thing to cover the poop or smell. With this litter box, it scoops 20 minutes after she goes, no smell to linger. If we are home and notice she goes we can push the button for it to scoop immediately." —Mrs_smith84

    28. A cat grass-growing kit to keep Mr. Fluffybottom from eating all of the houseplants you've acquired this past year.

    29. A cat digger interactive toy that will help slow down your greedy friend who just can't get enough of food, which probably even causes them to throw it all up. Barf no more, Stinky McStinky Butt!

    Promising review: "I've had my eye on this for a while, and I'm so glad I finally got it. It is well made, and even though it is a simple concept, it is great enrichment for my kitty. I can see how much he enjoys the stimulation of 'digging out' and 'catching' his treats like prey, and it's rather entertaining to watch. Be prepared for the consequences of your kitty realizing how many fantastic new things he can do and get into with his newfound dexterity. I have seen kitty dip his paw into my glass of kombucha to try to catch the bubbles!" —kAZ003

    30. A bottle of ear cleaner for gently deodorizing, cleaning, and drying Catrick Swayze's ears. Clean ears = happy kitty.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just adopted a sweet kitten from our local shelter. She came home with really dirty ears. She could have had mites so I treated/cleaned her ears every day with what I bought from the vet's office. Instead of getting better, she was getting worse and it soon turned into infections in both her ears. After reading reviews about EarWell I figured it would be my last attempt before taking her into the vet for an expensive exam and meds. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION EVER! She is on day two of cleaning her ears, as instructed, with EarWell and I notice a huge improvement already!! Her poor ears were horrible. Her first cleaning it was as if the gunk would never end that came out her ears. But she must have felt better after the first because she sat like an angel for me every cleaning after that." —Kai

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two scents).

    31. A cat pillow toy that literally purrs which can help soothe your anxious or stressed baby. It's touch-activated and will last two minutes each time it's squeezed or cuddled. That's two minutes of sweet, sweet cuddles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week old kitten, I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep, she crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple times I throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack and it holds up great." —S Leytem

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in seven styles).

    32. A raised cat food bowl so your feline furbaby can reach their food without causing any unnecessary neck pain. Bonus: it also helps reduce the risk of backflow. Yeah, I mean barf.

    Promising review: "My 17-year-old cat wasn’t eating much and preferred eating from my hand. Well, this bowl saved the day! Turns out with age his neck must have been hurting to bend down, so eating was painful. Once I introduced his food in this new raised dish he ate his food all up!!! He’s such a happy cat now, and he doesn’t vomit his food up anymore either. Highly recommend this for a senior cat!" —Pavi

    Get it from Amazon for $12.92+ (available in three styles).

    Promising review: "We needed to entertain my cat during this quarantine and to splurge on her by buying toys and fun stuff for her to play with. This is her favorite furniture out of all her things including her cat tree. She spends her days laying down on it and sleeping on it! I can tell she loves it so much! I am so happy with this and it is designed beautifully as well to fit my room decor!! Don’t hesitate to buy this for your fur baby!!" —Michelle

    Promising review: "My 1-year-old male cat is insane. I've never had a cat with this much constant energy and drive to play and/or destroy. With COVID and working from home, I was going crazy. I love him, but he's nuts. This was a perfect solution. He loves this toy! It did take a day or two to understand and warm up to it, but now he'll come to get me to turn it on for him. He's stimulated and I get work done without hearing something crashing to the ground." —Rynwil

    Get it from Amazon for $29.90.

    35. Dander-reducing wipes so senior Mr. Tinkles' fur can remain clean and fresh, especially if they didn't make it to the litter box in time. Just because he's old, doesn't mean he doesn't deserve his kitty dignity ~and~ shiny fur.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These wipes are great! I have a senior cat who had heavy dander and shedding even with frequent brushing. These wipes have greatly reduced both the dander and the amount of loose fur! She has very heavy dandruff which is common in older cats. I've been using one wipe three times a week and her dandruff is easily 90% less. The amount of loose fur is also way less. I brush her, then use one wipe all over her body wiping with her fur direction. It's really made a difference. Her fur is shinier and softer." —Etain E.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24+ (available in various quantities).

    36. An outdoor playhouse for your kitty to enjoy nature in the safety of a confined tent without you worrying about them running away and getting hurt.

    37. A cat scratcher to prevent your feline buddy from scratching up, oh let's say, your brand new sectional couch which was a major adult purchase for you but they insisted on using it as their personal scratching post so now there's piling of thread and every time you see it you get mad. Totally can't relate.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "Great scratching post that also makes great home decor! I found out during WFH that my cat is a vertical scratcher, which explains the pattern of destruction on the sides of my club chair. I reconfigured her cat condo to have a tall scratching post, but it made the perch on top too unstable, so I decided to get a new cat condo and also a taller scratching post for her needs. The tallest of the three cacti is perfect for her scratching needs at full vertical stretch. She really likes the soft carpet that covers the tops of the posts as well. I have caught her on occasion using the shorter posts when scratching while sitting. The saguaro cactus is really adorable and looks almost like eclectic home decor than cat furniture at first glance. The structure is well made, and I think will last for awhile." —Amandabug

    Get it from Chewy for $54.96.

    38. A bottle of Resolve carpet cleaner that I'm convinced is actually just a bottle of magic. This has been able to get even the oldest hairball stain out of our carpets. I will die on my Resolve hill.

    Promising review: "OMG this is disgusting!!! I hope this isn't all just cat pee that shows up cause there is a lot! I bought this because I thought my cat was peeing in one room and couldn't find the exact spot so I bought this. Found the spot and more. Would recommend." —Momof3boys

    40. An airtight food container so you don't have to worry about your cat rejecting stale kibble (as usual) ~or~ any uninvited pests from sneaking in.

    The container
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was looking for an airtight container that could hold the 28lb bag of kibble still in the bag. The whole dog journal recommended not to pour kibble out of the original bag because it would expose the kibble to more oxygen than necessary, which causes the food to go stale and lose nutrients faster. This did the trick!" —J. Bass

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six sizes and two colors).

    41. 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 Norman).

    Two cat food cans with silicone lids on top

    Promising review: "These can lids are really great. I love them because the silicone is easy to clean and doesn't hold bacteria. Plus they have the hanger tab, I like that because I put the tab over a post in the dishwasher and they don't fly around when the dishwasher runs. Having them come in a two-pack is nice too, I can have two flavors of food open at a time. The three different size options actually DO fit the different can sizes. Even if the can has a dent, the flexibility of the silicone adapts to the dent." —Melinda L. Halicki

    42. And finally, a cat door you can install on your sliding glass windows or doors so Jennifurr Lopez can stop bugging you about wanting to go outside. Especially considering 99% of the time they just want the *option* to go outside.
