    1. A water fountain that will give David Meowie an even ~fancier~ way to drink water because they deserve it. They're old now, and it's time they live the life of luxury they've been expecting since they were kittens.

    Promising review: "Nice water fountain for my senior cat. She was not drinking much water before I bought this product. It has helped stimulate her interest in drinking water again." —Jane B. Dodson

    Price: $26.99+ (available in two colors)

    2. A self-warming cat bed with a little pocket to store catnip so they basically have *the* perfect place to chill after a long day of being grumpy and old.

    Promising review: "My senior cat has many favorite places around the house. Once I introduced this bed she won’t sleep or nap anywhere else. I’ll even move it to different locations on random days. She finds it and sleeps in it regardless of where I place it!" —Luca

    Price: $16.99

    3. A pair of de-shedding grooming gloves to get that excess fur off your cat without stressing them out with a regular brush. They'll get some much-needed pets, while also keeping their coat shiny and soft. A win-win!

    Promising review: "I have a senior cat who no longer grooms herself. There is always loose fur on her. She does not like traditional brushes. She loves to be petted so this is dual purpose. She is getting groomed while being petted. It is amazing the amount of fur that continues to come off her with the gloves. Her coat looks so much better after removing the excess fur. The gloves are very comfortable and easy to put on and take off." —Kindle customer

    Price: $8.99+ (available in four colors)

    4. A pair of nail clippers because even elder cats still need to have healthy nails, so you still need to get them regularly trimmed.

    Promising review: "These were a game-changer for my senior cat. He was getting his claws stuck with every step because he could no longer retract them. One easy clip and he’s walking with ease. So happy with these!" —Logan

    Price: $6.98

    5. A window-mounted cat bed so your ol' cat can have a designated place to just relax, nap, and look out the window disdainfully at the squirrels and birds. Basically the ideal day for any cat, in my opinion.

    Promising review: "My senior kitty loves this! It keeps her out of reach from the pesky younger cat. Might have to get another one." —Taylor

    Price: $19.97

    6. A waterless dry shampoo to help keep Picatso clean, smelling good, and looking sleek when they can't do it themselves anymore.

    Promising review: "I have a senior Maine Coon who no longer grooms himself as well due to arthritis and this foaming no-rinse shampoo has been a godsend. I put it on, rub it in, and when it's dry, I brush him out. He looks much better and I believe he feels better. It removes oil and dander. This along with Burt's Bees cat dander towels and he's looking quite handsome." —Nini

    Price: $7.49 or Subscribe & Save for $7.12/month

    7. A calming diffuser that will seriously chill out even the grumpiest of elders and can even help reduce urine marking.,

    Promising review: "So our little fur-baby, senior citizen and MAMA of the household is a bit "sensitive." She's friendly and really thinks of us as her little kittens. But she's also a wee bit anxious. I bought this diffuser and only had it plugged in a few days but I'm telling you - she has a new bloom of confidence and a sparkle in her eye! It's now going on THREE WEEKS since we purchased this product and she continues to be cheerful, relaxed — and no "presents" in any corners. We're very happy with this purchase." —Sesheta156

    Price: $19.51

    8. A self-groomer cat brush so your lil baby can still feel independent when they don't have the energy to groom themselves like they used to. Plus, you can fill it with catnip!

    Promising review: "My senior girl acts like a kitten now that she has this new toy! I can tell it comforts her because she definitely has anxiety. I am going to order a few more!!" —Mrs. Shareef

    Price: $4.99

    9. A tower tracks cat toy because even elder cats get bored and this toy will be a huge hit. I have this exact one and our cats are ~obsessed~ with batting the balls back and forth on the tracks.

    Promising review: "Maybe the best self-play cat toy I've ever bought. It's brought my senior cat out of his shell! He's acting like a kitten around this when he's at least 12 and mostly at the 'sitting in comfort is my favorite' stage of life." —Mat Cauthon

    Price: $10.99

    10. A container of cat treats so you can make up for the years of hardship they've been through. Like all those times you didn't feed them at *precisely* 5 p.m. sharp— you basically owe them.

    Promising review: "I have a 15-lb 15-year-old and he loved these! As soon as I opened the container and he smelled them he was very happy!" —Donski

    Price: $15.78 or Subscribe & Save for 14.99/month (available in two flavors)

    11. A pack of colorful springs to bring the kitten out of your old friend again. Our cats absolutely ~love~ these springs. Sometimes I'll see them carry them all around the house and it's the cutest thing ever.

    Promising review: "My senior cat loves these and chases them all over the house. They are a great value for the price. You get a good amount per package and they are sturdy. Great buy!" —CJAshley

    Price: $3.97

    12. A cat litter mat so you can minimize the amount of litter that ends up being tracked around the house and litter box.

    Promising review: "My sweet senior kitty has become messy in her later years and this mat saves time cleaning up around her litter box." —Donna Gordan Clayton

    Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes)

    13. A cat digger interactive toy that will help slow down your greedy, old friend who just can't get enough of food, which probably even causes them to throw it all up. Barf no more, Stinky McStinky Butt!

    A cat playing with an interactive toy

    Promising review: "My cat is 14 years old and as a senior has started to gain some weight. He also eats his food way too quickly which results in throwing up. Happy to report this product has really helped. It took him a few days to really get the concept and he started to not eat and drink a crazy amount." —G. Anderson

    Price: $23.15

    14. A bottle of ear cleaner for gently deodorizing, cleaning, and drying Catrick Swayze's ears. Clean ears = happy kitty.

    Promising review: "I ordered this ear wash for my senior cat. I have used it to help his ears from waxy buildup. It has a very pleasant smell." —Norstrom Bank

    Price: $12.99 (available in two scents)

    15. A cat pillow toy that literally purrs which can help soothe your anxious or stressed baby. It's touch-activated and will last two minutes each time it's squeezed or cuddled. That's two minutes of sweet, sweet cuddles.

    Promising review: "When I first tried it, I thought the purr was very loud, and that it might scare my two senior cats, who are almost 17 and 18 years old. However, they both LOVE the purr, and it seems to soothe them and help them settle in. The toy really seems to help them calm down." —Sociology Reader

    Price: $11.99

    16. A bottle of dental care solution you add to their water to get rid of that stinky cat breath we've all had to deal with.,

    Promising review: "We have been using this with our senior cat, who has advanced gingivitis, for almost a month, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it's managed his TERRIBLE breath. I can sit with him on my lap again without gagging (not even exaggerating there- his breath was rank)! He hasn't seemed to have an issue with drinking the treated water, and it doesn't appear to have any scent that my human nose can detect." —Jill Shook

    Price: $9.95 or Subscribe & Save for $9.45/month

    17. A short cat tree because your elder baby still likes to perch, even if they can't jump as high as they used to. *sniffle* I'm not crying thinking about my cats getting old and perching on this tree, you are.

    Promising review: "My senior lady loves it! I have a senior cat who always wants to perch. I needed something for my office so she can hang out but not on my chair. Within an hour, she was in love. I love being able to have her near. Great product!" —Brenda J.

    Price: $28.99+ (available in three colors)

    18. A raised cat food bowl so your feline furbaby can reach their food without causing any unnecessary neck pain. Bonus: it also helps reduce the risk of backflow. Yeah, I mean barf.

    Promising review: "My 17-year-old cat wasn’t eating much and preferred eating from my hand. Well, this bowl saved the day! Turns out with age his neck must have been hurting to bend down, so eating was painful. Once I introduced his food in this new raised dish he ate his food all up!!! He’s such a happy cat now, and he doesn’t vomit his food up anymore either. Highly recommend this for a senior cat!" —Pavi

    Price: $14.99

    19. A senior cat kitty litter box because as they age, it gets harder for cats to do things they used to, like use the litter box. The lower walls make it convenient for your lil' elder to take a poo *in* the litter box again.

    Promising review: "This was a game-changer for my senior cat. She'd been peeing outside the litter box until I got these. It's easy for her to step in and they are really big so she can comfortably walk in and have lots of room. Sooooo happy I tried this box!" —Renee

    Price: $39.99 (available in four colors)

    20. A high-calorie supplement tube to ensure Catsanova gets all the vitamins and minerals they need to live the rest of their life healthy and happy.

    The tubes

    Promising review: "My vet recommended this product for my cat who was refusing to eat but needed nutrients. Let me tell you, my cat loves it! Although he does not like when you put it on his paw, he enjoys it when I mix it with warm water in a little bowl. His coat is softer, he has less dandruff, and most importantly, he has energy!" —YoungG316

    Price: $19.28

    21. A heated cat bed pod that will provide your old baby some much-needed coziness after years of dealing with you. It's a hard life.

    Promising review: "I've been a fan of K and H cat beds for years now, especially the heated ones for my senior cats. The cats seem to have an easier time getting into these versus the older K and H pods, and it's easier for them to be able to look in to see if the bed is occupied or not." —Mary G

    Price: $69.99

    22. A complete probiotic supplement for their ultimate health that provides 38 billion CFU beneficial bacteria from 14 carefully selected strains known to promote optimal gastrointestinal health in pets. Poop easy, Cat Damon.

    Promising review: "I got this item for my senior cat when she started dropping weight. She was on Science Diet for seniors and having issues with regurgitation and having some accidents outside the litterbox. I changed her food to a higher quality diet and added in the probiotic. She has now gone from not so great shape and mopy, to just being thin and geriatric but she's playing and happy again." —Barbara M.

    Price: $24.97 or Subscribe & Save for $23.72/month

    23. A cat scratcher because one, they'll use it to keep their nails healthy and sharp and two, they'll probably spend most of their time napping on it.

    Promising review: "My senior cat uses it as a step to get up to the bed, a table to eat on when he doesn't want to walk far, and a scratching post that doesn't run away from him. He doesn't sit in the middle, but I know of cats that love to sleep inside of theirs." —Usually Practical

    Price: $79.95

    24. A pack of dander-reducing wipes so Mr. Tinkles' fur can remain clean and fresh, especially if they didn't make it to the litter box in time. Just because he's old, doesn't mean he doesn't deserve his kitty dignity ~and~ shiny fur.

    Promising review: "These wipes are great! I have a senior cat who had heavy dander and shedding even with frequent brushing. These wipes have greatly reduced both the dander and the amount of loose fur! She has very heavy dandruff which is common in older cats. I've been using one wipe three times a week and her dandruff is easily 90% less. The amount of loose fur is also way less. I brush her, then use one wipe all over her body wiping with her fur direction. It's really made a difference. Her fur is shinier and softer." —Etain E.

    Price: $5.99+ (available in various quantities)

    25. A set of pet steps that will help your elder kitty make it up the bed for all the nighttime (and daytime!) snuggles you've been having together for years.

    Promising review: "Love these stairs! Bought both the large/tall one and this medium-sized one for my aging cat. She can't jump very high now poor thing, but she still loves to sun herself on the window sills and climb into the cat trees and cat baskets for a nap. Both the large and medium stairs are super easy to set up (take out of the box, snap stairs and brace together, and stick on the felt steps), and my cat used them right away without any fear." —Wadiefong

    Price: $39.95+ (available in two sizes)
