1. A fruit tart cat bed with removable fruits and a cushioned crust that'll finally convince your cat they should start acting like they love you ~berry~ much.

Not only does my cat sleep in this every day, she also loves playing fetch with the lightweight fruit. I often find her rolling the blueberries around the apartment. I dig having a pet bed that doubles as daily entertainment.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six styles).

2. A surprisingly striking cat scratching lounge for frisky felines who don't understand why you keep getting mad at them for *enhancing* the texture on your living room sofa.


This is made with recycled cardboard and nontoxic corn starch glue.

Get it from Amazon for $42.28 (available in three colors).

3. A floral water fountain with three pressure settings and a darling design sure to convince your particularly persnickety pet their water is, in fact, fresh as a daisy.


This has a water level indicator and an LED nightlight. It includes a filter, but you can also get refills when the water starts to seem less than fresh.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).

4. A treat puzzle is gonna stimulate your cat's hunting instincts so that they'll be entertained while they eat, instead of simply eating more than they should.


To set this up, put a few pieces of dry food in the center of the maze. Your cat will have to push the food around the box to get it through the openings on either side. It's a great way to challenge your cat and to keep them from overeating/eating too fast. You're gonna be a-maze-d by how much fun they have with this thing!

Get it from Amazon for $15.94.

5. A tropical scratching post that'll be a dang cute addition in your home and will get your (usually grumpy) cat in the ~palm~ of your hand in no time!


This post is designed with a sturdy base so your cat can lounge on top of the leaves. It's wrapped in eco-friendly jute fiber, which is great for keeping your cat's nails filed and clean, and it's also durable enough for them to stretch with.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

6. A ball track tower over 4,000 reviewers swear by, for cat parents who are desperate for a toy their beloved baby plays with longer than 32 seconds.


You can also get a similar one in black. My cats love this thing. I've had mine three years and it's still played with almost daily.

Get it from Amazon for $9.57.

7. A cat grass planter just might convince your overeager plant eater that the poisonous house plants in your living room are no longer worth chewing on and vomiting up — it might be worth monchin' on something their tummy loves instead.


This planter is designed to be used with Catit seeds and comes with a bottom grip and grid cover to prevent it turning into a knocked-over mess (something all cat parents cringe thinking about).

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

8. A fuzzy streamer sure to encourage your sedentary soulmate to start moving a mile a minute. Its sturdy design and soft exterior is made to withstand the most aggressive predators in your household and encourage them to run around the way their mighty bodies were made to move!


Fluffy just might have met their match.

Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

9. A DIY cat door so your cat can roam around your home without meowing at you whenever a door is closed. The added brush can groom your cat every time they walk through it — a calming activity they can do when guests are over and they have no interest in ~brushing up~ on their people skills.


This clever door is super easy to install — it only takes about 30 minutes. You can also use this to give your cat easy access to their litter box without having to keep a door open all the time, preventing smells and messes from making it into any other room.

Get it from Amazon for $31.85.

10. A butterfly spinner made with robust wings and a satisfying flying pattern that'll keep your little critter from ~bugging~ you when they are bouncing off the walls.


This set already includes two replacement butterflies, but you can also get a refill pack if your cat plays with this enough for added wear and tear. This also needs three AA batteries; not included.

Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

11. A collapsable tunnel for making your incredibly conspicuous kitto feel like a hide-and-seek champion during playtime, without compromising valuable real estate in your studio apartment the rest of the day.


This is made with crinkle paper built in, a peephole, and a hanging ball toy. It's also a great toy to get out when you want your cat to be self-amused when you're not home.

Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 18 colors).

12. A wine and cheese set sure to convince sophisticated cats you are worth keeping around, especially if they usually ~wine~ about not getting enough organic catnip snacks.


This silly set includes a plush wine bottle, two figs, two olives, and two types of cheese — all are filled with organic catnip.

Get the set from Amazon for $39.99 (also available as individual products).

13. A literal cat tree — it's definitely gonna remind you that you were barking up the wrong tree when you thought you were a dog person. This is gonna help your cat forgive your past ignorance.


Even if he can't beleaf you ever liked dogs in the first place... P.S. This tall tree can hold up to 32 pounds and is filled with faux leaves, giving your cat a relaxing place to hide that'll make them feel like they're roaming outside.

Get it from Amazon for $139.29+ (available in two styles and three sizes).

14. A pack of four catnip nigiri so your cat can indulge in a dish worthy of their pedigree, and so you can get in their good graces again after mistakenly purchasing some ~fishy~ fast food–themed catnip toys in the past. What were you thinking?!


These are lightweight and easy for your kitto to carry around in their mouth, making them the perfect toy for pint-sized predators who like to hide "treats" around the house.

Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two styles).

15. A motion cat track with a fast-moving feather which may finally make your surly cat show some positive emotions.


This has four speeds to keep your cat guessing and includes two replacement feathers. This requires three AAA batteries; not included.

Get it from Amazon for $34.89.

16. A sugar ball that'll stick on the wall and delight your darling diva, even if they seem to give you a rather tongue-in-cheek meow as a remark when you catch them enjoying it.


Simply stick this on your wall to give your cat a tasty treat that'll last up to 18 months. It's made with catnip elements that'll energize your cat just enough to make them come back to it again and again. It's also a great way to get your cat to drink more water — licking it makes them slightly thirstier and more likely to grab a drink after. It's also worth noting that not all cats treat it as a food at first — keep it on the wall long enough and they'll figure it out!

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

17. A chair hammock for giving your cat the best seat in the house on lazy weekends when your only plans are binge-watching Animal Planet and ~hanging out~ with your favorite feline.


This nonslip strap design fits under almost any chair and lets you give your cat a comfy place to lay around without taking up floor space like usual cat beds.

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

18. A playpen your kitten is basically gonna live in from the moment you bring it home — totally redefining the term "catfish."


This is made with corrugated cardboard and requires no tools to assemble.

Get it from Amazon for $26.55.

19. A mounted cat scratcher so you can prove you aren't ~kitten~ around when you tell people you give your cat the very best.


This is one of my favorite pet purchases. It takes up no space, looks surprisingly nice in my apartment, and my cats love it! I've had mine for over five months and it's still going strong!

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

20. A treat ball for cats and kittens who love eating and would really prefer having a ~ball~ while they do it.


This combines meal time with entertainment and exercise to help overweight cats lose weight and help maintain a healthy weight in all cats. The adjustable openings accommodate for multiple types of treats and food. This thing is even dishwasher-safe!

Get it from Amazon for $6.95 (available in three colors).

21. And an exercise wheel that'll be a ~wheely~ fun way to keep your indoor cat active, healthy, and happy!

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

This wheel supports up to 23 pounds and is surprisingly easy to train your cat to use. One of my cats took to it immediately, naturally knowing how to use it the moment I brought it home. My other cat learned how to use it within a week; by putting food or toys in front of him I taught him how to crawl up the wheel and he started running on his own just a few days later!

Get it from Amazon for $399.99.
