    Promising review: "It is really beautiful, I'd like it even if I didn't have a cat! LOL. There is a plastic double decker one like this but my Norwegian Forest cat can knock it over and destroy it. This one has multiple balls. It is solid wood, very durable, and very stable. I love this! If they ever make one even bigger I'd buy it in a heart beat. This size would even work for kittens." —Anna Aryeh

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    5. A sleek aquarium tank – it's totally gonna improve your fish kid's quality of life, although they may get jealous when they realize you're staring at their sweet digs instead of their own glorious gills.,

    Promising review: "This has been amazing so far!!!!! It's great! My kids love it. Easy quick assembly/no directions needed. The filter is super super quiet, I can't hear a thing. We have two goldfish in there. I recommend leaving the filter off for the first few days, so enough bacteria builds up to make the water good for your goldfish. As soon as I turned the filter back on on day three, the water was so clear and bubbles dissipated — so the filter works very well too! —Robin

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    6. A ceramic feeding bowl for critters with great ~taste~ who would prefer eating, drinking, and (for our tiniest babes) playing in a trend-setting dish.

    Two black bowls in different sizes with white splatter paint pattern
    West Elm

    My new goal is to have my guinea pig's enclosure be filled with only black and white toys and decor. Just...remind me to get a Guinea pig first.

    Get it from West Elm for $48 (available in two colors).

    7. A wool mouse with such a long tail your cat can run around like wild when you play with this rascal of a rodent. Plus, it's so cute you won't even mind finding a rat in random places around the house.

    Eco Tails

    Wool fiber artist and business owner Kamila has cat caves, pet beds, and other fiber goods throughout the shop. Eco Tails is based in Los Angeles. And for you maximalists who snuck into this post, this pet bed is one of my favorite things in the shop!

    Promising review: "This toy didn’t disappoint! It’s been cat and kid approved! The tail is long, like really long! But that makes it more fun. My daughter runs around pulling it and the cat chases her. It’s also so long she hung it from our stairs and he was in the hallway below swatting at it. My youngest cat is a chewer and he really loves to chew on the tail. It seems like a pretty durable toy." —Kori31

    Get it from Eco Tails on Etsy for $18.88 (available in two colors).

    8. An Icelandic wool nesting pad that'll protect your furniture from your pet's paws while looking like a piece of human-grade decor.

    9. A coconut hideaway for rodents, reptiles, and birds who would like to pretend they're not at home, but enjoying a gorgeous tropical vacation. Same here, little gecko.,,

    Promising review: "I have four parakeets (the parents and the two children), and the mother loves this coconut! It's nice and roomy for her. Initially, I was concerned because when she first went inside, the entire coconut started shaking like crazy. Then I realized that she was trying to remove some of the fuzzy rope that went through the coconut (I guess to make it more comfy?). Either way, she sits inside happily while the other birds reek havoc." —Nani

    Get it from Amazon for $9.70.

    10. A boho scratcher you can mount right on your wall — saving floorspace (and your furniture).

    Promising review: "This is no ordinary cat scratcher! It's sleek, well made, and takes up minimal space (which makes a big difference in our smaller home)! Our cat has been a complete terror lately, moving on from shredding our couch to literally tearing the paint off our walls. This seemed like the perfect fix, as it attaches to the wall. I rubbed some cat nip on it and set it down flat to get our cat used to it and then hung it on the wall a few hours later. So far so good, he seemed to take to it really quickly! This company just released this product, and I feel like my purchase really mattered. This has quality, style, and excellent customer service! I would 100% buy this product again and anything else they make!" —Bearash

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    11. A sneak-a-treat puzzle in a natural wood color that won't make your floors look cluttered (typical snuffle mats are, at best, rather distracting).


    Promising review: "I love my dog more than life itself. He’s a rescue so I'm not sure of his age. I bought this puzzle hoping he would have fun and use it. I had no clue how fast he would take to it. He’s not the most ‘intelligent’ so I wondered, but he got the treats so fast. He hasn’t used his paws yet to move the pieces around, just uses his nose, but he’s doing it. Every time he gets one I cheer for him and his tail wags like crazy and he continues on. He love his puzzle." —DogMom01

    Get it from Amazon for $17.04.

    12. A knit catnip toy so heckin' cute your actual baby is gonna be jealous. And honestly, when your kid is crying at 3 a.m. but your kitten is sound just might think they deserve the prettier toys. Sorry, screaming infant.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my grandson's birthday present which his mom decided was a tortoise. Maggie (the tortoise) fits in my hand right now and it was absolutely perfect! It's light and he can watch his tortoise through the plexiglass. He loves it!!" —Kimberly K.

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99+ (available in two styles).

    Get it from Laylo Pets on Etsy for $75 (available in four styles).

    15. A reptile vine — a brilliantly simple piece to throw in your snake's enclosure, giving her plenty of surface space to roam around without making the cage look cluttered.


    Promising review: "I love this product! So does my large corn snake. I soaked the suction cups in hot water, as suggested by another reviewer, and they adhere well to the glass. My snake climbs on this vine every day – it adds a layer to her habitat, giving her more room. It looks nice in the terrarium as well." —Dawn Lukas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two sizes).

    16. A modern litter box that'll be a centerpiece worth staring at in your studio apartment.

    Plastic litter box with side removal for easy cleaning. It has a grated entrance to prevent litter from getting out and it's elevated on small legs.

    Promising review: "My cat absolutely loves it. I have a hard time getting him out of that place. I think it’s turning into his man cave, rather than a place to do private business." —YY!

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (available in four colors).

    17. A 12-inch silk reptile plant sturdy enough for sleeping, hiding, and swimming in. Get this nifty piece of pet-approved "furniture" and enjoy a naturally-styled tank.,

    Promising review: "These leaves have handled some crested gecko abuse and besides the first time I put it up, it has yet to fall (even with my overweight man all over it). He really likes the hiding spot and will tangle himself up in! It's a great value honestly.

    Edit: I've had it a while and it still works great! The suction cup is strong and durable, and my adopted gecko was overweight – even with a 55-gram boy crawling all over the plant, it has hung well and it is great for them to hide in, hide under, or tangle up in!!" —Sierra

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    18. A filtered drinking fountain so your feline friend can have a drinkable water feature that's ~clearly~ a sight to see.

    This is the fountain I have and I love it! My hydrated kittos are also big fans!

    Promising review: "My kitty and doggie love drinking at their little water fountain. I like it because it is small. I have a cat and a Shih Tzu, so the small size is perfect." —Patti B.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three styles).

    19. A spiffy chew toy set with a clean, geometric aesthetic. These long-lasting toys are gonna be loved by your pup and keep your place looking great...even when Fido leaves them in the middle of the living room.

    21. A wall mounted cat capsule — you might as well sell your TV, because once this is in your home your liquified kitto is the only thing you'll be looking at.,

    Promising review: "This product brings us endless joy. I installed it eight 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 $99.99.

    22. A simple food magnet you can put on your fridge to keep your dog's feeding schedule on track. They are *very* good at acting like your partner didn't feed them five minutes ago...this simple tool can help you from being deceived by those literal puppy dog eyes.

    Round magnet. One end says "Fed" and the other says "Not Fed."
    Precisely Yours

    This shop is owned by Regan and run in Austin, Texas.

    Promising review: "These are perfect for our busy household. They are exactly what I wanted. I couldn't find one for the dog being taken out.

    Get it from Precisely Yours on Etsy for $4.

    23. A window bed that'll give your favorite bird watcher the perfect perch, without cluttering your floor space with a cat condo.,

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical when I first saw the product because I was very unsure if it would be sturdy enough to actually hold onto the window when/if my cat lounged in it. But my cat absolutely loves this window seat. The best part is that it is completely sturdy and all worries of it not holding on the window have been replaced with compete happiness with the product. I would recommend this to anyone and their furry babies, as I have been pleasantly surprised with the product myself!" —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $27.30 (available in two colors).

    24. An oat milk dog shampoo bar without silly labels or kooky illustrated animals that you see on other pet bath products. These bars are natural and beautiful, so your bathroom can stay the spa-worthy space you've styled it to be!

    25. A flat or cylindrical cat bed, both with unique designs sure to prove to your roommates that getting a cat won't ruin your Instagram-worthy apartment.


    Promising reviews: (flat bed) "My cat, Mocha, is nine this year and we wanted to switch to some more cushioned cat beds for her to lay on since she's getting older. I LOVE this bed. Unlike a lot of cat furniture, it doesn't look ratty, it goes nicely with the decor. And she loves it! We set it up against the radiator in the kitchen for warmth and she spends a lot of time in it now. She's around 12 pounds and fits well. The size/shape is perfect for her to curl up in. The cushion was much more plush than I'd expected, it's fairly springy and there's enough give to be soft for her but it isn't so soft she sinks down into it. She seems to really like resting her chin on the ledge to watch what's going on around the apartment. This is a really great bed for kitty to sleep in, or to lounge in during the day. If you're living in a small space that you don't want dominated by obvious pet furniture, this looks really attractive as a plus." —Olive

    (covered bed) "I bought this hoping that my cats might be interested. I'm happy to say that they do, particularly one of my four. She tends to be timid and is usually not comfortable coming out from under the bed when the others are around. She LOVES this! She feels safe, she has an escape route if needed, and she loves to sit on top and play! I highly suggest! it's easy to clean, too!" —Jules

    Get the flat version for $34.99 and the cylinder version for $44.99, both from Chewy.

    26. Or a hug bed with a solid design that's so dang darling even the surliest of cats is gonna snuggle in it. No doubt.

    Get it from Happy Heart Pet on Etsy for $49.50.

    27. And finally, a fence window for dogs who take their neighborhood watch shifts very seriously. Put this in your fence so they can keep an eye on everything that's going on in the front yard while you're out.,

    This includes everything you need to secure the window and it takes about 15 minutes to set up. All you'll need is a drill/driver, crescent wrench, and a pencil.

    Promising review: "Our dogs love it! Our old fence had gaps for them to see who was I the driveway, but with the new one, no gaps. The doggie windows allow them to see who is pulling up again! Each one took about 10–15 minutes to install. We just used the black ring to trace the inner circle, cut with a jigsaw, marked the holes for the bolts and pre-drill, and used a 10-mm wrench to tighten, not too tight to crack ring or globe plastic. Now they can see us again!" —Summers

    Get it on sale from Amazon for $29.88 (originally $49).
