Happy Holidays! As you check items off your holiday shopping list, don’t forget to pick up a few things for your kitty! Read on as a local Fort Collins, CO vet lists some great gifts for cats.
Our feline pals certainly are drowsy. In fact, Fluffy can sleep up to 20 hours a day! Get your tired pet some comfy beds to snooze in. (Don’t worry if your kitty already has a bed or two. As far as cats are concerned, you can never have too many napping spots.)
While we recommend that cats stay indoors, you can give your kitty a taste of the outside by getting her some pet-safe plants. Check the ASPCA site for suggestions.
Robotic mice are another great gift option. These adorable modern toys react to your feline friend’s movements and vocalizations, providing lots of interactive fun.
Automated Laser Pointer
Does your furball love chasing that little red dot? Get Fluffy an automated laser pointer, so she can keep chasing after her elusive prey.
Have you ever noticed your furry buddy ‘watching’ television? Get Fluffy some kitty DVDs, and let her binge-watch shows about birds and squirrels.
If your kitty loves high spots, wall-mounted furniture would be a great gift option for her. Look into getting Fluffy some cat shelves, or even a catwalk.
Is your pet using your sofa or carpet as a nail-care station? Give your furball a good scratching post or board. (Tip: sprinkle some catnip around it to make it tempting for Fluffy and encourage her to use it.)
Cat towers are great for Fluffy! They offer her a scratching post and jungle gym, and also give her a good vantage point, so she can look down at her kingdom. If your budget is tight this year, go the DIY route and make your kitty a cat tower. Look online for step-by-step instructions.
Catnip mice are a classic holiday kitty gift, and are always a wonderful choice. However, Fluffy can now enjoy her catnip in several different forms. Why not offer your feline pal some catnip bubbles? You can also give Fluffy her own little catnip plant.
