    Promising review: "I brushed off enough cat hair to have another cat. I would recommend this brush if you want to brush your fur babies bald. It won't actually ever happen, them being bald, but it is so satisfying to see that fur pile up next you as you spend 30 minutes brushing your cat or dog." –Charly

    Price: $15.99

    2. A Burt's Bees dander reducing spray for cats who need a bit of help with grooming. This formula contains colloidal oat to promote skin health, and aloe vera to add hydration to their coats.

    Promising review: "My cat is 10 years old and fluctuates with his weight. He has trouble cleaning himself and I think this is why he gets dandruff on his back. His dandruff was extremely bad and his skin was super sensitive to the point where he didn’t like to be brushed anymore. After literally one day of use it has cleared up... at least 80% better... his coat is softer and he loves to be brushed again!" –Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.49

    3. A Rocco & Roxie stain and odor eliminator, because accidents happen more and more with age! This spray contains enzymes that eat away at any odor you might be tackling with your senior cat.

    Promising review: "We have three large dogs, and our house is constantly either full of fur, dog toys, mysterious puddles, etc. Long story short, we had two incidents in which I thought we'd have to rip out all the carpet and sell our house. Both times, R&R not only got the stain completely out of the carpet, but it completely removed the house of the ungodly smell of our dogs' transgressions!!" –Benjamin Poon

    Price: $19.97

    4. A wound and skincare spray, because cats get nicks from time to time. Consider this the cat version of that one salve you rub onto your own cuts to help them heal quicker.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat is a Maine Coon and he's very fluffy. For about two weeks he's been having some skin issues and flakes. After it rained, I've noticed his back was bleeding. I have tried ointments and nothing works until I came across this. No lie... I sprayed him three times yesterday and pat it down with paper towels, now he is completely healed. A great spray for your pet's skin, seriously!" –K Sauce

    Price: $26.98

    5. A bottle of cat ear solution, because nobody likes an ear infection, and cats especially don't like it when humans clean their ear infections. These wipes are gentle, alcohol-free, and contain aloe vera to help soothe your cat's aching ears.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a stray cat for almost three weeks now. I took him to a Vetco bus to get his vaccines. The vet told me that he has ear mites and needs to go to vet clinic for ear drop prescription. That would be another little fortune. I checked Amazon, read reviews and gave these drops a shot. After only three days I saw a significant difference. His ears cleared really fast, the dark goop started to dissolve and I realized that he wasn't scratching his ears as much. After one week there is almost no goop to see. I am very happy, saved a lot, cat is also happy!!!" —gülser akbas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    6. A Paul Mitchell foaming waterless shampoo for those of you who would rather not partake in giving your kitties a bath. This foaming wash's pH is formulated specifically for animals, which means that it won't strip any necessary oils from your cat's skin that act as a protector from the world.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Plus, a portion of the proceeds from each sale go to animal and wildlife organizations, meaning that you'll be helping other animals while helping your cat, too.

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this more stars. Like a typical person I smelled the soap before I used it on my two cats. The smell is absolutely amazing. So I got my cat in the tub and started the lather. Fast forward a couple of hours to my cats being nice and dry. They are so soft and their coats look amazing. It honestly feels like they are kittens again with how soft they are." –Kayla G.

    Price: $11.99 (available in three sizes)

    7. A pet hair remover, because there is no reason you shouldn't have the white duvet cover of your dreams simply because you have a shedding cat. This pet hair remover is perfect for any surfaces that collect cat hair, and great for clearing clothes of pet hair, too.

    Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have three cats, and two of them are long hair. I saw the Pet Hair Remover on Amazon and figured that I’ve tried just about everything else. I was blown away at its ease of use and thoroughness of fur pickup. One swipe picks it all up. I am not exaggerating!" —Carol M.

    Price: $21.99

    8. A cord protector for your kitty who thinks that all your charging cords are chew toys. This product provides that one-two punch of protecting your cats from chewing on dangerous wires while streamlining a corner of a room that may be riddled with cords.

    Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat like chewing electrical cords. In the past two years, I have tried several products to cover cords. But nothing seems can stop my kitten chewing them. What I most worried is that my kitten will get an electric shock when chewing cords. A few days ago I found this product. My cord is flexible after I install the protector. At the beginning my cat tried to chew, but she can not chew through the cord protector. She had to give up. Seems like my cat lost interest in chewing my cords. Wow, I win." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $16.99

    9. A set of furniture repair markers and wax sticks, because cat scratches are a thing, whether they're on your desk, drawer, or door. These nifty pens cover the appearance of scratches to make it seem as if they never even happened in the first place.

    Via amazon.com

    This set comes with six stain markers, six wax crayons, and one sharpener.

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these work! Much better than I was expecting. I just had my home interior painted and the painters damaged a fiberboard medicine cabinet when they removed the masking tape. It ripped off the fake wood veneer. These markers completely filled in the ugly spots and the colors blended well. I love that it appears to have some clear coat in it too as it dries with a slight shine that makes it look more like wood stain rather than markers." —Shane

    Price: $9.99

    10. An air purifier to rid the air in your home of pet hair, pet dander, and anything else that might be floating around you.

    Promising review: "We have had this purifier for six months now and haven’t changed the filter until today. (I know, definitely should have sooner). But I wanted to show how well it really does work. On the left is of course the used and the right is the brand new filter I received today. This unit WORKS!" —Lindsey

    Price: $89.99

    11. An oatmeal paw butter that works to soothe cracked paws on your feline friends, and your pups, too. This is especially helpful during those dry transitional months from Winter to Spring.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been using this on her paws for two weeks now. I do it every day when I get home from work. My cat's paws look so much better. You can't even tell they're cracked! Worth the buy for sure." —lilbeth0303

    Price: $7.99 or Subscribe & Save for $7.59/month

    12. A pair of grooming gloves so that you can comb your cat while petting them at the same time. With 225 silicone grooming tips, your cat can finally slip into a state of zen as you massage their excess fur away.

    Promising review: "I have two cats, tried a deshedder brush but they hate it and hide the second I take it out, so I was looking for other options and saw these gloves -it turned out to be a life-changer! To my surprise cats absolutely love it! They even purr and roll around to make sure I didn't miss a spot." –Yana

    Price: $13.99 (available in two colors)

    13. A FURemover broom, because there is no telling how much fur you have hiding in your carpets until you purchase one of these brooms. I have this broom and use it regularly on my area rugs. I'm always shocked (and grossed out) by the amount of hair that accumulates from my two lovely cats.

    Promising review: "I just received the broom today and it's already a hit. My two area rugs accumulate cat hair that doesn't get completely removed by vacuuming. I tried this broom dry first and it didn't have as much effect as expected, but when I wet the bristles and used a raking action (short strokes towards me with pressure) a horrifying amount of fur came popping out." —WingutNYC

    Price: $12.44

    14. An electric groomer to say goodbye to winter fluff, pain-free.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't normally post 5-star reviews and long descriptions but these clippers are actually AMAZING. Folks, my cat was severely (and I mean SEVERELY) matted. I kept planning on bringing him to the groomers but hadn't gotten around to making an appointment yet. So I bit the bullet and bought these shaver clippers. The whole process was actually quite easy from buying the clippers to actually using them. Because of his hair being so matted, I didn't use a guard. It was like shearing a sheep! I came away without a scratch and with a really pretty, happy kitty to boot.: —MadAlexIBe

    Price: $29.74

    15. A feline allergy relief dropper that will work to diminish the symptoms of a runny nose, runny eyes, or general sinus issues.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Quick background of my cat. She's 15 years old and started sneezing and getting a runny nose on a regular basis about five years ago. I've spent hundreds (if not, thousands) of dollars over the years for vet checkups, shots, liquid prescriptions to help ease her symptoms. No real prognosis so it could be allergies, infection, common cold. These drops have helped more than anything I've tried so far. For my cat, it's 10 drops, three times a day till symptoms are gone. Usually within a few days. If she starts to get a runny nose after a while, I'll just give her another dose." —Santa8T

    Price: $6.99

    16. A nail grinder to save your skin from frisky cats with the tendency to scratch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but I felt this one warranted one! I have a 6-year-old mini dachshund and trimming nails has always been rough!! Screaming and biting (from the dog). I’ve tried other nail grinders and she was terrified of them. I came across this one and thought I’d give it a try. It took only five minutes to do ALL FOUR paws! She held perfectly still and didn’t fight me a single bit!! She even wagged her tail when we were done!! Hallelujah I think we found the tool for us!!!" —Carrie Ward

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two styles)

    17. A dental kit, because taking care of your cat's oral hygiene can help decrease the risk of disease down the line. Plus, it gives them fresh breath, which is always welcome during cuddle sessions with your furbaby.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After just two days of brushing his gum inflammation went down. My cat is not a fan of the toothbrush but he tolerates it. The bottom pic is before and the top is after (cat is 2.5 years old and had never had his teeth cleaned)." —Levi Karhoff

    Price: $6.49

    18. A top entry litter box that'll rid your litter trail woes for good. This litter box traps litter before your cats' paws hit the floor, meaning that you'll never have to worry about stepping on little bits of litter as you walk around your home.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this litter box. It comes with an adorable scooper and place to hang it, and the subtle color helps it blend in the the room without really screaming 'there’s poop in here.' It’s not only discreet, but it keeps my cat from making a mess as she leaves. I got one of the dome types last because after she finishes she feels the random urge to bolt from the litter like a ghost is after her. (Cats, amiiright?!) but not with this. She has to take her time and jump out. And what little litter she does track out is caught on the top piece that is so easy to remove and clean. And the price point is perfect too!" —Shelly B.

    Price: $29.69+ (available in three colors)

    19. A Gorilla Grip de-shedding brush, because brushing your cat's fur regularly is the best way to prevent hairballs. This brush has extremely fine teeth that comb out every piece of dead hair hiding in your cat's coat, without ever damaging the healthy hair that's still holding on.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat has been declawed, so can't groom herself. I comb gently, let it run over her flank, back and belly on its own without trying to "dig in". As you can see from the picture, she loves it at least as much as being petted. It removed lots of hair the first two days, now not so much since most of it has been taken care of. She was traumatized before she got here, so it's amazing that she's so comfortable being combed. Many thanks, Gorilla Grip!" –A. Buyer

    Price: $9.89 (available in six colors)

    20. A Capstar cat flea treatment that'll help relieve the pain that your cat goes through when dealing with fleas.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My beloved INDOOR felines have been bombarded with an infestation the likes of which I have never experienced. I invested in "top quality" collars for each. No relief. Later applied a vet recommended topical solution. No improvement. This is the first time I have tried an oral application for flea treatment. Within ONE day, their itching and scratching is MARKEDLY reduced. I know of no cat who likes a pill shoved down their throat, but this very small pill makes the task a little less intrusive. I will keep a supply on hand year round." —klf

    Price: $28.49 or Subscribe & Save for $27.07/two months

    21. A Burt's Bees waterless shampoo to help wipe any dirt and debris from your cat after their backyard adventure. This is great for super finicky cats who would not even dare walk past a bath.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a young Maine Coon. Since she has long hair (and a lot of it!), she never smells as good as my shorter-haired cat. I've tried giving her baths but she doesn't handle the stress well so this was the next best thing. She wasn't scared at all when I sprayed her with this (I let her check out the smell and bottle before hand and then let her play with the cap while I sprayed her). The scent of the shampoo isn't strong at all but it did completely remove/cover her smell. Also important to note, she didn't groom afterwards and try to lick this shampoo off. So it was all-in-all a raging success." —Bookish

    Price: $6.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.64/month)

    22. A Turbo Microfiber mop system with washable pads, because cats tend to scratch everything from couches, to pillows, and even floors. This mop will deliver your floors from that post-cat scratch dullness.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The day I received this mop, it felt like Christmas morning. Very easy to assemble. The microfiber pads are everything. They are easy to rinse and easy to put on the mop (and they stay on!) They pick up everything. The mop is sturdy and beautiful. I really love that I can use any cleaning liquid that I want. I also love that I can easily wash the pads and reuse them. Oh and BTW the company included a hand-written thank-you letter which I thought was super cute, sweet, and lovely." —Bel

    Price: $39.95

    23. And a bottle of feline skin and itch drops to help your kitties deal with their allergy symptoms. This'll provide them with sweet relief from all the scratching they've been doing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product really surprised me! My cat had been overgrooming due to an allergy and anxiety. I put five drops in her bowl of water each time I refilled it. She doesn’t seem to notice which leads me to believe it’s either flavorless or it tastes good! I have been combining the drops with anti-anxiety treats. The results have been amazing. My other cat was suffering from dandruff as well and now his coat is shiny and healthy! Wonder product, saved my cat’s fur!!!" —Sarah

    Price: $6.42
