    1. A convenient eye wash that comes in the form of presoaked pads 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. 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.)

    6. 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.

    7. A dental kit, because oral hygiene should be a routine part of your cat's week. Each kit comes with toothpaste, a toothbrush, and a finger brush.

    8. A pair of professional nail clippers so you can trim your cat's claws and make cuddling a little less painful.

    9. A self-cleaning brush that'll delicately loosen knots and remove matted fur without earning you a sharp swipe from your cat's paw.

    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 set of clear couch protectors to protect your furniture from your cat's wrath. These self-adhesive pads blend in with your couch and chairs and can be cut to size.

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

    13. A purring cat toy so you can finally sleep easy instead of 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.

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

    15. 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.

    16. An automatic water fountain that'll encourage picky cats to stay hydrated. Some cats hate drinking still water (long story short, it's a defense mechanism), so a fountain with running water may be more enticing.

    17. 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.

    18. A pack of stain-removing pads to tackle the inevitable messes that come with owning a pet. Pee? Check! Poop? Check! Vomit? Check! (You can even use them to clean up your wine spills.)

    19. 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!!

    20. 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.

    21. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum to suck up pet hair. 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.

    22. A pack of four charcoal air-purifying bags that'll help clean the air, drawing in moisture, bacteria, and unwanted odors. Place them anywhere your pets frequent, like near the litter box.

    23. 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.
