  1. Purrfect Post: The View

    Purrfect Post: The View

    When it comes to cat scratching posts, Purrfect Post® truly is the perfect choice. Purrfect Post® makes cat scratching furniture in all different shapes and sizes, offering something for every cat out there. Our favorite pick this year is the Purrfect View cat tree.

    The base, posts, platform, and bed on the View are all covered in high-quality sisal fabric—the best scratching material for cats. With two wood stain color options, two sisal color options, and three platform/bed color options, you can completely customize your cat tree. If you really want to impress your kitty, opt for the Everest Edition, which sports an even taller topmost bed and more space between the two platforms, for extra scratching real estate. We love these cat trees, and we know your cat will, too!

  2. Muffin Blanket

    Muffin Blanket™

    We are really excited about this new product that is sure to make kitties happy everywhere they love to nap. Which is, well, everywhere. These round blankets are made of the softest faux fur fabric you can imagine, and they come in lovely colors. There are two sizes available, 15" in diameter and 22" in diameter (small and large). You can throw a Muffin Blanket™ inside another cat bed or anywhere your cat likes to nap, to keep the surface free from cat hair. They're well-made by hand in the USA, and they're definitely cat-approved. Fancy hasn't left hers since we put it down for her.

  3. Fun and Adorable Cat Toys

    Fun and Adorable Cat Toys

    It's no secret that cats love to play. And while they may not strictly care how cute a cat toy is, the humans in the house love to play fetch and hide-and-seek with kitty's cutest toys. Plus, cats do take a liking to certain toys, and maybe it's because they're adorable. Some super fun choices are Stinkie Sardines, My Cat's Balls, Pollock Fish, Catnip Crayons, Rocket Blaster and Cigars.

  4. Holiday Cat Toys

    Cats and their owners love having new holiday toys to play with. We found a variety that are cute, festive, and many are full of extra-strong, organic catnip: Holiday Cat Toys

  5. Interactive Cat Toys

    Interactive Cat Toys

    Even though your cat may stay inside all the time, you can bet that he still has a hunter's instincts. Satisfy them with great interactive cat toys. Wand toys that move like birds allow your cat to stalk, sneak, and pounce on "prey" just like his intuition tells him to. These toys help keep cats from getting bored and encourage them to stay in shape.

  6. Honeysuckle Cat Toys

    Honeysuckle Cat Toys

    If you have one of the rare cats that doesn't care much about catnip, have no fear. We've found some gifts that will be perfect for your kitty. There are honeysuckle-stuffed mice, socks, playmats, and even some honeysuckle spray to use on old toys. You can find all of them here: Honeysuckle Products.

  7. Purrfect Angle

    Purrfect Angle

    Cats love to scratch when they first wake up, after they eat, and even occasionally under their human's bed. The Purrfect Angle is the best way to accommodate all of these feline scratching needs in one attractive item. Sturdy, appealing, and versatile, the Purrfect Angle can be placed flat or at an angle for your cat to enjoy. And its heavy-duty corrugated cardboard is a great scratching surface that your cat will love. You can even get extra replacement inserts and just toss them under the bed or in the closet for your cat to discover.

  8. Cat Caves

    Cat Caves

    Many cats love to curl up in small spaces. They like to observe the world from a hidden spot, possibly jumping out and pouncing as someone goes by. They also love to curl up in a small spot that holds their body heat, so they can be nice and warm while they're sleeping. Cat Caves are beautiful, individually handmade with wool in Nepal, and cats absolutely love them.

  9. Muffin Pillowcase

    Muffin Pillowcase

    The ultimate in kitty comfort! These pillowcases zip right over a standard size pillow, creating an easy-to-clean bed for your cat that means she won't have to steal your pillow anymore. The reason your cat likes to sleep on your pillow is it smells like you and provides comfort. Covering an old pillow you don't use anymore with a Muffin Pillowcase means your cat gets to sleep on a bed that smells like you while leaving your current pillow open for your own weary head. Win-win! Plus, the Muffin material is ultra-soft and gorgeous.

  10. Music My Pet Mellow Melodies CD

    Music My Pet CD

    This gift recommendation is one you and your feline friend can enjoy together. Studies have shown that cats relax when classical music is playing. The Music My Pet CD has all of your lovely songs in beautiful instrumentals, so you and your cat can both enjoy the season with less stress and more cuddle time.

  11. Purrfect Post Deluxe

    Purrfect Post Deluxe

    Our final gift recommendation is the tall, sturdy, and attractive PurrfectPost Deluxe. Every cat we know wants one of these as a gift. They're stable and cats absolutely love scratching the sisal fabric. If you really want to spoil your kitty, this is the way to go. Plus, there are so many style options that you'll love the addition to your home's decor too.
