Cat lovers are everywhere and so too are a myriad of wonderful gifts for both them and their precious pets. Everything from the most practical ideas, to gifts that supply nothing but amusement. There is no shortage of great cat gift ideas, but here, we’ve shortlisted some of the best gifts for cats and cat lovers. Enjoy!
1. Cat Stud Earrings
These miniature cat stud earrings are light and comfortable for everyday use and great for anyone with sensitivities as they are made with 100% sterling silver.
2. Feltcave Cat Cave
Of course, we couldn’t compile a list of the best gifts for cats without including our beautiful Feltcave cat caves! Cats notoriously can seek self-warming hideouts to snuggle up in, and our Feltcave cat caves fit the bill perfectly. Not only do cats love them, but owners adore them too – with a gorgeous range of colors to choose from, they are hand-made with love using the time-honored (and low carbon footprint) art of wet felting. The coziest hidey hole any cat’s heart could desire!
3. Cat Hammock
Yes, you read that right. After our beloved felines have spent all day working hard at doing as they please, they desperately need some relaxation and what better way than to lounge about in a wall mounted cat hammock. Alternatively, every cat loves to peer through the window at the outside world and cat window perches offer a very easy set up for your pet’s favorite vantage point.
4. Electric Thermo-pad Heated Bed
Depending on where you are in the world, it may be time to snuggle up and get cozy. Originating from the desert, cats are heat-seekers and certainly appreciate the added warmth of a heated bed. The Aleko Electric Thermo-Pad Heated Pet Bed is suitable for small dogs or cats. While it comes with a “heavy duty chew-resistant” cord, we’d feel more comfortable suggesting that pets use this bed under supervision to be safe.
5. Vesper Cat Tower
If you’re looking for a super-stylish, no-expense-spared gift, the Vesper Cat Tower might be the solution. This modern, gently curved cat tower looks more like a work of art – offering up a variety of perches, scratching spots and resting spots with soft memory foam cat bed cushions.
6. Multi-Feather Teaser
For smaller gifts, you can’t lose with a Feather Teaser. This wand toy has received rave reviews from cat owners and experts alike. With bright feathers and a pull-a-part rod, this gift promotes interactive play for healthy cats.
7. Egg Cersizer Interactive Toy and Food Dispenser
Tap into your cat’s natural hunting instincts with a PetSafe FUNKitty Egg Cersizer Interactive Toy and Food Dispenser. This interactive food dispenser hides treats and dry food pieces, enticing cats to actively poke around and ‘hunt’ to find them.
8. Zen Drinkwell Water Fountain
Cats are notoriously bad at drinking sufficient water, and feline dehydration can lead to fatal kidney issues in later life. To encourage cats to drink more water, the PetSafe Drinkwell Zen Stainless Steel Water Fountain mimics fresh, running water which cats find more appealing than a simple bowl of water.
9. Pet Stairs
For anyone with a senior cat, particularly one with arthritis issues, it’s sad to see them struggling to get onto the couch or bed for comfort. The Trixie Wooden Pet Stairs are the perfect solution. With a natural wood finish and storage areas under each step, they are practical, aesthetically neutral and so helpful for the ageing feline.
10. Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed & Carrier
What fun it is to coax a cat into a pet carrier! Unlike most dogs, travelling with a cat can be a nightmare of epic proportions – typically they hate to travel, and they hate their cat carriers even more. That’s why Sleepypod has designed a Mobile Pet Bed & Carrier combined to condition a cat for an easier travel experience. When you unzip the carrier, it turns into a plush, semi-enclosed bed – leave this in the house for a day or two before you travel, and chances are your cat will familiarize itself with it and thus reduce some of the negative associations in time for your departure.
11. Furminator Long Hair deShedding Tool
Whilst cats are very clean pets and they are excellent at taking care of their own grooming needs, they sometimes fail to prevent a build up of hair balls, particularly with long-haired breeds. The FURminator Long Hair deShedding Tool reaches through the topcoat to remove loose undercoat hair – and comes with a built in ‘furejector button’ to release the hair from the comb. Brushing can be a wonderful opportunity to share some soothing bonding time between cat and owner, too.
12. Walter Chandoh - Cats
Making the New York Times list of most giftable coffee table books of 2019, Walter Chandoha – Cats, is a delightful collection of cat images that would certainly take pride of place in any cat lover’s home. Photographer Walter Chandoha devoted decades to capturing cats in all their splendor and silliness, and this collection of his work is a charming book to browse.
13. Cats on Catnip
While we are on the subject of books, this beautiful and hilarious collection is the perfect gift for the cat lover who already has it all. Cats on catnip by cat photographer, Andrew Marttila, has captured the weird and wonderful world of cats under the influence of their beloved green stuff and created an endearing coffee table collection.
14. Custom Cat Poster
A cat already knows it is royalty, so we may as well succumb to the fact and immortalize their regal stature in portrait! Whilst it may fit the ‘crazy cat lady’ vibe, it’s such a humorous take on pet portraiture and certainly a great talking piece!
15. Custom Paw Print Ring
These dainty paw print rings are a lovely, personalized gift for the cat lover. Made with solid sterling silver and plated in 18 carat rose gold, these Custom Paw Print Rings can be ordered easily by simply scanning and sending a photo of a pet’s paw print along with the order. A particularly thoughtful gift for memorializing a lost pet, too.
16. Kitty Ears Pillowcases
For the minimalist cat lover, look no further than these Cat Nap Kitty Ears Pillowcases. These modern, soft pillowcases feature a minimalist cat design, celebrating cats but in a simple and stylish way. Machine washable and with a 300-thread count weave, these pillowcases are professionally screen printed in Philadelphia, USA.
17. Bean Estore Cat Shaped Measuring Spoon Set
If you know someone who loves baking almost as much as they love their cat/s, then this is the gift to get them. Made from porcelain and featuring a durable design, the Bean Estore Cat Shaped Measuring Spoon Set is such a lovely kitchen item, that in between baking, they can take pride of place on the countertop!
18. 'My Gift to You’ Mug
This tattoo-esque designed mug encapsulates the attitude of many a beloved cat – if you don’t like, tails up and I’m out of here! The ‘My Gift To You’ Mug is a nod to the loveable arrogance of cats, especially when they look at you disapprovingly and walk away with their tail in the air! But, yes, let’s call it a gift. A fun mug for a small gift.
With so much to choose from, it should be a breeze to find the purr-fect gift for cats and cat lovers alike! We may be biased, but if you’re buying for the feline in your life, we do think our Feltcave cat caves are hard to beat! Each cat bed is felted by hand in Nepal from 100% natural wool that cats adore. As well as being a comfy spot to relax or hide in, our cat caves come in a large range of colors to suit any home decor. And who said we can only treat our four-legged friends at Christmas!
