    30 Problem-Solving Products For Cat Owners

    Including a catnip alternative, dander-reducing wipes, a wall-mounted brush, and more pet products that are ~the cat's meow~.

    1. An eye wash to gently clear any goop and crusty eye boogers that have accumulated on your cat's face.

    2. A waterless cat bath because as much as we love our fur babies, sometimes they truly smell like that pile of vomit on the sidewalk I avoided last Friday night. This leave-in foam can moisturize their skin and leave it squeaky clean.

    3. A bottle of Burt's Bees dander-reducing spray so your cat's coat is soft, shiny, and free of dander and flakes. It's made with aloe vera and oatmeal to condition dry skin and reduce redness.

    4. A pack of Burt's Bees cat wipes for reducing dander and keeping your cats fresh between baths. They're pretty similar to the spray, so it's up to you which format your prefer using with your kitties.

    5. An ear treatment that'll clean your poor pet's ears of buildup and prevent inflammation and irritation. These ear drops are designed to protect against a variety of fungal and bacterial infections, like yeast and staph infections.

    6. A purring cat toy if you're waking every hour because your anxious kitty won't stop meowing. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    7. A tube of allergy drops to help relieve congestion, sneezing, watery eyes, and a runny nose. (Of course, we recommend seeing a vet if these symptoms persist as they could be symptoms of a sinus or nasal infection.)

    8. A pair of professional nail clippers because your cat's overgrown claws are destroying basically every soft fabric in your apartment.

    9. A pack of matatabi chew sticks so you can spoil your sweet baby *and* help them keep their teeth clean. Matatabi is a plant native to Japan and a catnip alternative (great for kitties who show no interest in catnip!).

    10. A calming diffuser kit for helping stressed out kitties relax. This is especially useful if your cat is having trouble adjusting to new surroundings or has separation anxiety.

    11. A reversible cardboard scratcher lounge that'll stand up to even the most enthusiastic kitty. (Your carpet thanks you!)

    12. Or a wall-mounted scratching post if you'd like your cat to scratch this and not your couch legs. Reviewers love that it's both beautiful *and* durable.

    13. And speaking of couches, a set of clear couch protectors to save your furniture from your cat's wrath. These self-adhesive pads blend in with your couch and chairs and can be cut to size.

    14. A broom for pet hair, because there's probably a ton of fur that's trapped in your carpet — and you can't even see it. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.

    15. An air purifier so you can breathe easily. Not only will it cleanse the air and suck up pet dander, but reviewers say it also does a fantastic job getting rid of funky cat smells.

    16. A window hammock for anyone whose pet enjoys staring longingly outside but who would also not last more than five minutes as an outdoor cat. (Having to catch dinner? No, thank you!). This soft hammock gives your cat their own little perch *and* satisfies their natural curiosity by letting them watch the birds, the squirrels, and your next door neighbor walk to the mailbox in their underwear.

    17. A mounted brush that'll satisfy your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.

    18. An automatic water fountain if your picky cat demands to drink only from the bathroom faucet. Some cats hate drinking still water (long story short, it's a defense mechanism), so a fountain with running water may be more enticing.

    19. An interactive cat toy to appease your furry rulers and occupy them for a few hours...until they come howling for dinner.

    20. A pack of stain-removing pads because they have the power to clean common cat messes. Pee? Check! Poop? Check! Vomit? Check! (You can even use them to clean up your wine spills.)

    21. A self-warming pet bed so your kitties stay nice and toasty. (Reviewers with hairless cats say it's great for keeping their naked bbs cozy and warm.)

    22. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum for sucking up pet hair with ease. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    23. A cat shelf that'll help your cat feel safe up high on their perch. Cats naturally like higher positions so they can see their surroundings (and can quickly spot any dangers, like the vacuum cleaner).

    24. A set of ceramic food bowls and a matching stand if you wish Mittens would stop knocking over her food bowl. Just once, Mittens! These stainless-steel bowls are raised to reduce neck strain, and the whole set is built with an anti-slip grip to prevent it from being knocked over.

    25. An organic cat grass–growing kit for any fur babies who struggle with frequent hairballs as well as indoor cats who just want a taste of the outdoors. It's made from a blend of barley, flax, oat, and wheat seeds and is a safe source of vitamins and minerals.

    26. A cat brush because you're a bit of a weirdo. If your cat has been a little standoffish, this might be the thing to bring you back together. Grooming is a form of social bonding, so brushing your kitties with this brush on a regular basis can strengthen your relationship. Don't look at me like that! Some of us have been quarantining with no one but our cat for a year. What do you expect?

    27. An odor-eliminating spray so you can lift stains and odors fast. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet's accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    28. A pet hair remover for anyone who's tired of getting fur all over their clothes. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    29. A top entry litter box that'll keep the litter where it belongs: in the dang box and NOT all over your floors and carpet. It has a grooved lid to catch any litter that's attached itself to your cat's paws, plus it comes with scoop!

    30. An automatic litter box if your cat's currently in a stand off with its old litter box. Reviewers say that not only does it help reduce the frequency with which their kitties leave surprises *outside* the box, but it also helps reduce the amount of litter that gets tracked into the house. Also, no more scooping poop!
