I’ve been cat-shamed by a 4-legged friend named Gadget. He was our border for a few months while his Mom was getting set up out of state. Now he’s not speaking to me. He heard that I referred to myself as a ‘dog person’. I’m learning that cats are not easy to apologize to, they make you work for it. I’ve come up with 8 gifts that just might be worthy of an apology, a celebration or just keeping yourself in their good graces.
8 Purr-fect Gifts For the Cat
1. DJ Kitty Scratch
This dj cat scratching pad is so awesome, I feel like maybe I should just drop the mic here. Boom.
Available from UncommonGoods: DJ Cat Scratching Pad
2. Whack’a Mouse
Warning: he won’t want to quit until he earns enough tickets for that feather on a stick.
Available from Amazon: Whack A Mouse Learning Cat Toy
3. Cat Hammock
Dahling, bring me a mojito and hold my calls.

4. Sphere Cat Tower
She’ll enjoy the view of her kingdom and all her subjects. You’ll enjoy a piece of cat furniture that looks good in your living room.

5. Cat Scratch Lounger
A modern, sleek design made of durable, recycled, corrugated cardboard. Winner of an Eco-Excellence Award.
Available from Amazon: PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge
6. Catnip Toy
A sweet little bird handmade from upcycled wool (or wool blend) sweaters and stuffed with eco-fiber and certified organic catnip. I kind of want one for my desk, but I don’t need the catnip distraction.
Available from Etsy: Birds of a Sweater Catnip Toy from Three Sassy Sisters
7. Ball Chaser
Ever feel like you’re just going in circles? Sounds like fun doesn’t it?!
Available from Amazon: Bergan Star Chaser Turbo Scratcher
8. Laser Pointer
Our dogs couldn’t be bothered with a laser pointer, but my buddy Gadget sure loved it. This one can be set to a 15 minute auto timer for when you have to leave the house or actually get some work done. Lightweight and handheld it also works like a standard laser pointer for hours of family fun.
