    Just 28 Things You Might Want For Your Pet Once You See Them

    You, thinking "my pet will love this. Your pet, thinking "I will indeed love this."

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A reversible cat scratcher lounge bed to give your furry pal a fun and comfy place to rest, play, and get their scratching urges out so your couch stays tear-free! This includes catnip, is spacious enough for multiple cats, and has lots of scratching space. Plus, its funky design adds to your room decor too. One reviewer hung them up as cat shelves!,

    Promising review: "Kitty loves it! Never had a cat before and then I brought in a 10-year-old stray from my old apartment. He is the sweetest cat ever and I fell in love with him so wanted to spoil him. He loves it even more than I could have hoped. Spends several hours a day sleeping or just perched on it and hits it with his claws every time he jumps on. So adorable. Have had it for a couple months and it's held up really well. Cool that when the top is worn out I can just flip it over and it's like having a brand new scratcher again. He's a pretty big/long cat so I was unsure how well he'd fit on it but it's absolutely perfect. Will definitely be buying another if this one ever wears out!" —Super Bon Bon

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    2. A fur remover broom that works on carpets, hardwood, linoleum, showers, windows, and more. With the adjustable handle and squeegee edge ready to mop up liquid spills, it'll be a relief to have for every pet owner!


    It works for human hair too, FYI. Check out BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord's review on this fur remover broom for proof!

    Promising review: "I just got this amazing broom in today. I was excited to see if it was the answer to my dog/cat hair nightmare. IT IS! It really does such a fantastic job. I have two dogs and three cats. I would have to sweep my ceramic and hard wood floors at least three times before I felt it was close enough to being clean. But this magical broom did it in one try. Best Amazon purchase I have ever made. Buy the broom. You will love it!" —Jomojo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    3. A cat pouch hoodie so you never have to go anywhere without your furry lil bud. Need snuggles? Just bring your cat with you.


    Reviewers advise to size up so your cat will fit comfortably!

    Promising review: "I'm not really a crazy cat lady (yet) but someone anonymously sent this to me (or so I tell people) when I got a new dog, an older rescue who had never been around cats. The dog is not mean to her but the cat finds it disturbing that she can't sit in my lap without a giant German shepherd staring at her from three inches away. Like imagine if you were trying to sleep and a creature whose head was bigger than your body was hanging over you. So, into the 'roo pocket she goes and she will stay there for hours. Sometimes I have to call in sick to my job because the cat won't let me change out of the roo. It's not forbidden to wear a 'roo to work but it might make people not take me very seriously so I only go to work on the days the cat says I can. Seriously this is the dorkiest thing ever and I look really stupid in it but I love it for real." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S–XXXL and seven colors).

    4. A washable grooming glove that makes grooming easy. It'll trick your pet into thinking you're giving them a loving massage when actually, you're doing that and removing all the loose hair so your house stays pet hair-free.

    The grooming glove full of hair in front of a French bulldog
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer AnaMaria Glavan raves about this product:

    "My dog has recently started to shed, and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under water) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. A six-pack of durable and colorful squeaky balls for small to medium size dogs that'll elevate their next game of fetch.,

    Promising review: "BOTH MY DOG AND I LOVE THIS TOY. I've been telling my husband I need to get 20 more sets of these in case it's ever out of stock. This toy is perfect for small dogs who cannot resist squeaky toys. One squeak is all it takes to hype my dog up. This toy is small but LOUD. I keep one in my dog walking bag so if my dog ever runs away I can just squeak it and my dog will run right back. It's very easy to carry. My dog is not much of a chewer in general but he can play with this toy by himself for hours; he finds the bounciness very fascinating." —Amiel Chen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in two shapes).

    6. A pretty floral bandana for your pet to celebrate the coming of spring!

    Boho + Bark

    The bandanas are made with water-based inks and dyes and are eco-friendly and 100% cotton. They're are sewn with fabric that is sourced from small business designers.

    7. A thick foraging mat for your rabbit, guinea pig, chinchilla, and other furry buddies to make their daily meals exciting, encourage their natural foraging skills (you can hide treats!), intellectually stimulate them to prevent boredom, and slow down too-fast eaters. A must-have if you ask me.

    8. A wall-mountable cat perch to give your feline buddy a chance to exercise, play, then nap! The perch is great for small spaces.,

    Promising review: "The shelves, which look beautiful and are incredibly sturdy, slide onto armatures you screw into the wall first. These metal anchors make them sturdy enough. It makes installation so easy, especially with the guides and level provided. We found finding a stud in the wall the most effective and secure. Velcro puts the scratch pads and bedding firmly in place, but easily removable to clean or replace. A few treats and kitty knows just where to perch. I wanted something that would look beautiful and be functional and create diversity for the kit. Worth every penny. I will be purchasing more over time, and I highly recommend." —Jason

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    9. A strong pet odor eliminator for neutralizing the odor instead of masking it. No more spending hours spraying your house until you choke on air. It does so well even you might forget you have a pet.

    the spray being used on carpet

    This is multi-use (you can use it for other odors than just pet odor) and non-toxic.

    Promising review: "Honestly, this product is not what it first appears. It is sold as a pet odor spray, but it is so much more. It works on trash cans, litter bins, rugs, walls and just about anything that has an odor. I did try it on the waste in the Litter Genie but I found it wets the waste (it's liquid...duh) which is why you used litter in the first place to absorb the moisture and make it easier to scoop. That said, it did deodorize the waste as stated. I use a few of the NonScents granules inside the litter genie and odor is gone while keeping the waste dry. This is much better in my opinion than Zero Odor spray, which I previously tried. Together with the NonScents granules this makes a dynamic duo against pet odor." —Doc

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    10. A SpongeBob SquarePants house because I know your fish buddy watches SpongeBob with you and is totally a fan too.

    Promising review: "My kids love SpongeBob. Got this for our little betta fish tank and with his plant in there. It's a perfect fit; now he can hide in style! He even swims through the windows and door. Bright colors and well-made." –Serena

    Get it from Amazon for $6.88+ (available in two sizes).

    11. A floor or wall-mounted sisal cat scratching post that'll save space and your furniture from being all clawed up. The material is reminiscent of tree bark so your cat will love playing with it — plus, you can place it higher up on the wall so your cat can get that full-body stretch. They'll be more ~cathletic~ than ever!,

    Promising review: "The average cat scratching post is a hideous blend of string and beige carpet that sucks the soul from any room in which it is placed. Not this one. This scratching post is sleek, well made and unassuming, blending easily into any room. It arrived well packaged and was easy to install with the hardware provided. Furthermore, it is robustly constructed and stands up to constant use by my cat. I highly recommend this product." —D James

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    12. A spacious home for your rabbit, hamster, or other little buddy, so they can rest and munch and doze the day away (the dream, honestly).

    Promising review: "I have a baby bunny that is expected to grow to be of medium/large size once she's done growing. I found that this cage was meant to be plenty big. It didn't take long to assemble the thing. I was worried that the entrance would be too big for my little bunny but she jumped through the entrance just fine. The stairway to the food dish is a bit steep too but she was able to jump up that too without a problem. I love this cage! It's massive (so much so that my boyfriend who is 6'3" and weighs 220 pounds can fit in it. It's durable, made well, and a cute cage for my bunny. I definitely feel like I made the perfect decision when getting this cage! My bunny adores her new cage too! It's evident that the extra space is much-loved." —stripedfire

    Get it from Amazon for $81.99+ (available in three sizes).

    13. A plush orthopedic dog bed made of memory foam so it'll conform to your furry pal's body shape and provide support for joints and muscles. It's so comfy they'll give you their seal of approval (with perhaps a paw petting your head).,

    Promising review: "I bought this bed for our 5-year-old German shepherd, Scout. He immediately jumped onto it and acted very pleased. When I unpacked it, all the air was sucked out of it; it was flat as pancake. I left it lying out overnight and by morning it was 95% inflated and within 24 hours the bed was completely inflated. Scout is 120 pounds and I purchased the XL. He fits on the XL just fine. We like this bed so much we ordered another in an XXL for him to share with his kitty friends. It will give him room to stretch out. I’ll take the XL bed with us to the office where he loves to come and hang out with the stuff. I think the bed is expensive, however it is very well-made, attractive and I am sure will be good for Scout's joints. It’s the least I can do for our most loyal member of our family!" —Grammie53

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in nine sizes).

    14. A water conditioner for when you're changing the water in your fishie's aquarium. This makes the tap water fresh by detoxifying heavy metals and removing chlorine and chloramines. It even repairs your fish buddy's protective coat and boosts their color.

    Promising review: "This is THE best stuff ever. My fish LOVE it and it lowers their stress so much so their colors came back and they look so much happier. I have cichlids and color is very important to defining if they are stressed out or not. I have used many pet store-recommended (just because they are expensive) water conditioners that aren't even scratching the surface to how much I love this water conditioner." –Cheyenne

    Get it from Amazon for $1.79+ (available in eight sizes).

    15. A pet hair remover if your pet sheds and you're tired of cleaning up after them. Just roll, roll, roll, and watch the fur lift away! It'll easily make life easier for you and your pet friends.

    Promising review: "This product was a lifesaver for me...both financial-wise and in efficiency. The roller removed the cat hair from my clothing effortlessly and within record-breaking time. It saves me time getting ready in the morning or when going from the animal shelter to a restaurant with friends. It instantly and reliably removes cat hair from clothing without a lot of effort from the person wielding it. I was impressed by the size and the ease of usage. I highly recommend this." —Siamic

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    16. These yummy organic baked apple sticks for your bunny, chinchilla, hamster, bird, or other small pet to munch on. Your pet will snatch them right out of your hand!

    17. A leaf hammock so your betta fish can rest and swing like they do in nature! Yeah, they actually like hammocks. It's a thing.,

    Promising review: "I am an experienced aquarist, but I recently got my first betta, King. He is in a 3.5-gallon tank. Before getting the fish, I read about bettas liking of 'hammocks,' and I thought it sounded silly and unbelievable. But King instantly took a liking to this double-leaf product. He hangs out between the two leaves and builds his bubble nest there. The suction cup works great. I would definitely buy again." –Garlic Fries

    Get it from Amazon for $6.48+ (available in one, two, or three pack).

    18. An inexpensive self-grooming cat brush that'll probably put your cat in kitty heaven. It's wall-mountable so you don't have to hold it, helps remove and collect loose cat hair, and encourages your cat to use their senses and natural instincts indoors!,

    Promising review: "My cat likes nothing. He doesn't go into paper bags, ignores boxes, isn't curious about the birds. Mostly he eats and sleeps and allows us to pet him. But he LOVES this! I took someone's tip to stick it on the corner of a cabinet with looped duct tape. Seems to be holding fine, even though Igor rubs himself senseless on this thing. Also the catnip that came with it must be killer stuff. He really goes for it. So Igor gives it a big five stars!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    19. A drinking water fountain that's great if your cat is a picky drinker. Its design keeps their whiskers from getting wet and it has three different water flow settings for their needs.


    Promising review: "Seriously helpful for keeping kitties hydrated. [My] cats aren't prone to drinking enough water, and they also abhor getting their whiskers wet. This fountain, recommended by a friend, was a huge hit from the moment I set it up and solved both of those problems. My kitty now guzzles water any time she wishes, which is definitely more than before (and yay, I don't have to turn the sink on for her now, which was the only way she'd drink water). This is fantastic!" —X

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    20. A medicated anti-fungal, anti-yeast, anti-bacterial spray for a quick and effective way to heal yeast infections, allergies, acne, and other issues. You and your pet can both breathe a sigh of relief!

    A dog before and after the spray. Before, patchy bald spots, after, coat looking smooth

    The reviewer above got these results after two months of daily use! This isn't a replacement for veterinary care.

    Promising review: "One application and day later I see better results than vet-prescribed meds. My cat Gandalf was in bad condition when we adopted him because he had a severe skin yeast infection. I tried this in a last-ditch effort to help him and WOW, one day later and finally my poor boy isn't constantly licking or scratching until he bleeds. He isn't licking at all!! His open wounds are finally scabbing and he finally has relief. Thank you so much for making this product." —Joshua and Michele

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    21. An airtight rolling pet food storage container to keep your pal's food fresh and yummy. The rolling makes it easy to store and retrieve quickly too!

    a dog next to the storage container

    Promising review: "We have a Doberman Pinscher and a Shih Tzu, so we frequently have to buy the 30-lb bags of dog food. The bottom container held 30 pounds of puppy food with ease (small pellets). We have not attempted to fill it up with 30 pounds of adult dog food yet (still puppies), but I will update my review when we do. The materials are sturdy and it looks fantastic; the added scooper is a brilliant addition. We are using the top container to hold treats and wet dog food, which it holds plenty of, and both stack perfectly. The containers slide very well on the wheels in and out of our standard sized pantry and while stacked or not stacked they fit like a glove. I have seen no issues with the seal on either container, and I am pretty diligent about checking the seal every time I close the lid." —TJ

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in nine colors).

    22. A cozy cave cat bed (look at that alliteration) your kitty will never want to leave. Which means you never have to worry about where they are or them hogging up all the space in your bed. Perfect.

    a cat inside of the bed

    Promising review: "This kitty bed is made of soft, durable fabric that if I were a kitty, I’d never get out of it! My little guy needs persuasion because he wants to sleep on OUR bed, so we bought him this. When he thinks we aren’t looking he climbs in and curls up and looks genuinely happy. He just won’t admit it. It’s really, really soft. If they made one in my size, I’d buy it! Definitely worth the price. We have had more expensive cat beds that were not as nice as this one. Very well made. Cozy and deep for a kitty to really snuggle in too." —Mrs Gower

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in 14 colors).

    23. An interactive dog toy to mentally stimulate your dog while keeping them entertained with obstacles and treats hidden inside. Plus, it helps with anxiety as well.

    a dog playing with the toy

    Promising review: "Our new rescued dog has heartworms, and is in the long process of being treated for it. This means months of keeping the dog calm and inactive. Friends recommended getting toys to draw out meal times and to mentally stimulate them since they can't get physical activity. I feed my dog with this puzzle toy, and then with a Kong that has been filled with kibble and chicken broth and frozen. She absolutely loves this toy. It fits a good amount of kibble. It's challenging enough that it kept her engaged as she figured it out. It was fun watching her get a little better at it every day. By now she can clean it out almost as fast as I can fill it, but she still loves it. We've been using it twice a day since we got it and it's still one of my dog's favorite toys to use." —Megg

    Get it from Amazon for $14.32.

    24. A tartar-removing breath freshener for dogs — it cleans teeth with no brushing required and can be added to water to help reduce plaque and bacteria. It's basically dog mouthwash!

    Promising review: "Talked to my vet about this kind of product. She was pretty informative. This stuff isn't a miracle, but it's helpful between cleanings and she said it was worth using as long as the dogs get regular brushing and professional checkups too. So, it's a good thing as part of regular care." —Keith M. Hamm

    Get it from Amazon for $10.12.

    25. An elegant and beautifully minimalistic personalized portrait art drawing of your pet. Choose your dog or cat from over 150 breeds, your fave design and color, and even add your pet's name! Oof, your friends will be so jealous.

    27. A natural oatmeal paw butter to pamper your pup's paws. It protects and soothes dry, cracked paws (and noses!) with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, aloe vera, and coconut oil. You can use it before and after daily walks too.

    before and after of two paws of a dog, one paw dry and crusty, the other smooth and nourished from the butter

    This is eco-friendly and pH balanced for cats so it's safe if licked or swallowed.

    Promising review: "10/10!! Such a life saver for my beagle. He plays rough and will play fetch for HOURS and occasionally gets paw injuries like a crack or a little prick from a thorn, etc. This paw butter seriously helps so much overnight. Last night our dog was limping and after thoroughly checking his leg and joints and looking at his paw, determined it must be from a little raw spot between his toe beans. He wouldn’t even walk on that leg. Massaged this into his paw and the next morning he’s back to running and jumping around like crazy! And it smells so good and with all natural ingredients I don’t have any fears of him licking a little bit of it off. So thankful for this product! We always make sure to pack it now if we’re going to the beach or on a hike and know if he gets a crack or splinter he’ll be fixed up in no time!" —KP

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    28. A toothpaste that's poultry-flavored so your dog won't mind when you get in there to clean their canines, molars, and incisors.

    A dog's teeth before and after a month of using the toothpaste. Before, large stains, after, mostly white

    The pics above are after a month of use!

    Promising review: "My dog goes wild for it. I can’t believe the difference it has made. My dog is a rescue and terrified/aggressive with the vet so I really didn’t want to put her through all that for a teeth cleaning and also the cost. Figured I’d give this a shot. I never thought in a million years my dog would let me do this but she enjoys it! Be patient." —JNC

    Get it from Amazon for $8.77.

    29. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement that'll provide your dog with much-needed probiotics and nutrients to help improve immune function and digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to fur. Your dog deserves to be at their best.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie
