Think about it for a moment. We leave nice cold milk and delicious cookies for the man who's bringing us awesome gifts and helping put smiles on the faces of all our loved ones. That's a pretty sweet deal, especially since we get to sit for hours, or even days, and enjoy all the wonderful presents and holiday cheer we receive. Now, how would you feel if that man left you nothing but a sooty carpet and greasy wrapping paper, while he partied with HIS family and friends? We, personally, would want to make sure the gift we gave him in return went with him every step he took. Forever. Well, until he was forced to buy new boots, at least!
We love our sweet felines, even if they do land themselves on the naughty list more than once. A day. So, we should show them that they are every bit as important to us during this time of family and fellowship as our human companions, and do something special for them to show them how much they mean to us!
If you're not always 100% fluent in Catanese, and you're not quite sure what your angel would want (or what would be perfectly safe for him or her), have no fear! We have a few ideas to get your catnip tea flowing and get you thinking like a, or more specifically YOUR, cat when feline gift shopping!
Did Garfield EVER Say No to Food?
Seriously! No matter how upset with Jon he became, or how caught up, he was terrorizing poor Odie, or following those pretty feminine felines around the neighborhood like a misguided Casanova, Garfield was NEVER too ANYTHING to eat! His all-time favorite food was lasagna, true, but his second favorite was YES! If it was edible, he didn't have to hunt or cook it, and it didn't bite him first, he was ALWAYS ready for a bite. Chances are, no matter how picky, or delicate, or proper your kitty is, he or she is, too!
So, if yours is a cat who loves to eat (and sneaking midnight mouthfuls when the hoomans are asleep DOES count!), try something like the Fun and Interactive Slow Cat Feeder Bowl! These are brightly colored for the human master’s pleasure, they prevent sloppy cat food spills, and they give your feline a little exercise and change in their daily routine while they enjoy their meals or snacks (or lasagna)!
The Birds and the Butterflies!
The only way I can describe this ingenious invention is to tell you a brief story.
I, myself, have five cats (as I may have mentioned once or repeatedly before). While doing a little kitty Christmas shopping of my own, I saw the Interactive Electric Rotating Butterfly toy, and instantly loved it.
The butterflies were precious, as were the birds, with which you can switch them, for a little variety in kitty's play (which sure beats the brutal hunt of those poor, helpless live critters)!
They were also practical and noninvasive, which is important to me because my house is kind of small. They're also easy for everyone! Just turn on the switch, and let the little winged creatures create hours of tireless fun for sweet furlines.
Then, I noticed the video of the sweethearts who were playing with this toy, and I had to watch. 20 minutes, 27 video views, and two fits of giggles later, I had one of my cats in my lap, leaning as close to the screen as he could get (without touching!) and VIBRATING with a bellowing purr and the itch and impulse to reach for that toy.
But the sparkly on the collar was when I got up to grab a little catnip for them. When I came back, the queen mother kitty (my very own baby girl and mother of the other four) was standing on the computer mousepad, and the video was playing again! I'd have given anything to capture that on video for you all, because even I hardly believe it... And I was there!
So, it's decided: Mama and her chillin's want THIS toy for Christmas, and so will your little hunter or huntress!
To the Tracks!
Do you wish your feline could get more exercise or entertainment while you’re away? The Interactive 3-Level Tower of Tracks Exercise Cat Toy may be exactly what you (and they) need! Brightly colored balls circle the three tracks on this toy, giving your cat something to chase, swat, run from, or watch for hours with another furry companion!
The toy has a stable design, so the balls don’t go flying each time your cat touches them, and the tracks prevent them from getting stuck, so your cat doesn’t get frustrated by balls that stop rotating around the toy.
It’s fun for you to watch them play, and perfectly safe to allow them to interact with the toy
while you’re out of the house.
Cat Scratch Training
Sometimes, when cats get bored, anxious, or angry, they enjoy a bit of claw action. Unfortunately, if you have no cat trees or scratch posts, this self-nail grooming behavior often results in torn furniture, shoes, clothes and drapes. Help save your home with our Long Rolling Sisal Scratch Post Cat Training Tool!
Scratch posts have long since deterred claw-happy kitties from shredding our belongings to ribbons. However, the Sisal Scratch Post goes above and beyond. Made from fiber crafted from the sweet sisal plant, it has a smell that no feline can resist. The ropes of the scratch post do not easily fray or shred, which means that the post has a long lifespan. And, to entice kitty to keep playing with the post, it also contains three roller balls inside, just within reach of your precious feline, so they don’t quickly get bored with the toy and go back to destruction. Give it a try! Your curtains, and your cat, will thank you!
Ahh! That’s the Spot!
Everyone deserves a nice massage after a long day. The Comfy and Versatile Cat Massage Grooming Tool does just that for our sweet kitties.
For use on your cat’s feet, neck, face, hips, and pretty much anything else he or she needs rubbed, this tool will keep your cat begging for more. Seriously, kitty won’t let you stop once you start! And why not?
Something that helps improve circulation, relaxes, and involves one-on-one time for you and your feline, all in one enjoyable, low priced tool makes for a great deal, especially during this holiday season!
