1. A set of lickable cat treats for the cats in your life who have very high standards about the food they eat. My cat is such a picky eater that sometimes I wonder if she goes on regular hunger strikes. Yet, whenever I open this container, she comes running.
2. A self-cleaning litter box to please the kitty in your life who absolutely, will NOT use their litter box if there is even a speck of, ahem, used litter inside.
3. A wet food with broth, because picky eaters are picky. This food contains broth, which will cover your cat's food in tasty flavors so that they actually eat their meals. Consider this to be in the same vein as hiding vegetables in your kids' meals.
4. A self-cleaning brush that'll make the act of brushing your fussy cat more manageable. This brush has fine teeth that combs every last knot in your cat's fur while remaining gentle on their skin.
5. A set of string toys for your cat who seems absolutely unbothered by every single toy that you present them.
6. An interactive toy that sporadically shoots out a feather from different holes in its side. It's basically like Whac-A-Mole for your cat — your cat will go wild over this.
7. A calming spray, which is perfect for the rambunctious kitty in your life who needs a lesson in chill. This spray contains calming pheromones and catnip, so that your kitty can finally sit back and relax.
8. An Oxyfresh water additive for the cat in your life who is quite particular about their dental snacks. This water additive is flavorless, meaning that your cat won't even know that they're drinking something that will make their breath smell fresh and their teeth and gums stronger.
9. A probiotic for cats that is the easiest addition to your picky eater's meals if you're looking to support your cat's digestive system. This probiotic comes in a powder form and is tasteless, meaning you can easily sneak this supplement into their wet food.
10. A cat hut, because some cats refuse to sleep anywhere that doesn't feel like a small enclosure. This'll be a cozy bed for your cat, and a cute addition to your home decor.
11. A fluffy wall perch if your cat would prefer to lounge on top of your shelves instead of their bed.
12. An automatic cat feeder for the feline in your life who seems to never stop meowing for food. This will ensure that your cat does not overeat, or undereat if you, by chance, forget that it's dinnertime for them.
13. A hooded litter box, because many cats prefer privacy when using the WC. This litter box will keep them happy, and it'll make you happy since it traps odors.
14. A round warming cat bed to provide your cat with a comfortable place to lounge. This bed is perfect for those with cats who only sleep in the places most inconvenient to you, like right on your pillow.
15. An elevated food bowl, because some cats actually do not like eating from bowls that are at the same height as the floor.
16. A jar of catnip buds so that your finicky cat can writhe around in the relaxation that comes with eating catnip. I have this catnip for my cats, and I find that since the catnip is still in its buds (as opposed to being ground), it stays fresher for longer.
17. A mesh shower bag for the feline in your life who resents baths, but needs them. This bag will give you the ability to wash your cat's fur without having to worry about them running away every five seconds.
18. 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.
19. A double-duty litter deodorizer if, no matter what you do, your cat's litter box has a presence that just won't quit. This deodorizer will lock in unwanted scents that'll have you wondering if your cat even uses their litter box.
20. An interactive cat toy that will stimulate your bored cat's mind. To use this toy, place treats inside the slots, and close them. Then, watch your cat play to uncover the treats inside.
21. A rainbow string toy, because some cats cannot be bothered by clunky plastic ball toys. String toys will get most cats moving for their recommended amount of play per day.
22. An electronic odor eliminator, since, sometimes, the scents your cats make can almost be as demanding as they are. Use this deodorizer anywhere your cat's scent seems to be most prominent.
24. A Zesty Paws wild Alaskan salmon oil to please the picky eater in your life who needs a bit of help moving their lazy bones around. This food additive is great for promoting joint health in cats with arthritis, and giving them a killer shine in their coat at the same time.
25. A window hammock, so that you can provide a new resting spot to the cat in your life who would rather lounge on your dining room table during golden hour than in their bed.
26. A hairball relief treat, because some cats, no matter how often you brush them, need a bit of help to suppress hairballs. Consider purchasing this for your long-haired kitty who seems to produce hairballs at lightning speed.
28. A package of wild-caught salmon cat treats so that your kitty with a sensitive belly can enjoy treats that are both delicious and great for their digestive tract, too.
29. A cat door, because some cats are persistent, and will viciously scratch at a door for as long as they need to until you open it for them. Consider giving them the freedom of mobility with this cat door.
30. And a mug that is not for your cat, per se, but rather for you. Whenever you ask yourself the question, Why is my cat so demanding? just look at this ceramic vessel for your answer: because cats do what they want.
