Purr-fect Gifts For the Cat

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. Laser Pointer

FroliCat BOLT 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.
