5 Cat Products We Can’t Live Without
Cats are beautiful, interesting creatures, and if you’re lucky enough to be loved by one, you know how important it is to give them a comfortable and fun home. There are literally thousands of cat products available through your local pet store and the internet including toys, litter boxes, collars, leashes and even clothes for your cat to keep them entertained and healthy. Felines can be fickle, which unfortunately means you might have to go through a few options to find the right fit.
Here are 5 cat products we can’t live without.
There’s nothing more basic—or more exciting for your cat—than a catnip plushie. This seven-inch banana is adorable and durable. Cats love to cuddle up against the curved shape and bat the toy around as they play. It’s perfect for kitties who love catnip; even if your cat doesn’t, she’ll still enjoy pouncing on it if you toss it across the room.
Your feline friend is going to love the PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge, and so will you and your couch! The sleek and innovative design combines a multi-surface scratcher, comfy curved lounger and cozy hideaway cave all in one. Scratching is a perfectly natural, instinctual behavior among cats that are intended to help maintain healthy mails, exercise his muscles, relieve stress and mark territory. When it’s time to relax, the ergonomically curved design cradles him in comfort, or he can curl up inside if he’s feeling extra-cozy.
These window seats are a great way for cats to bask in the sun and keep a watchful eye on the neighborhood, while safely indoors. They’re easy to install too, with sticky strips that attach to your window sill and can hold up to 40 pounds—you can also nail the base into the window frame. There are even heated seats for super-spoiled kitties. The covers are removable and can be machine washed.
Cats need toys to keep them stimulated and entertained. Unfortunately, there isn’t one toy that every cat will love. Some will play with any toy you bring home, others will prefer strings that fall off your clothes and the box that the expensive toy came in. You can go to a pet store and pick up a bunch of things to see what they like—most will probably find some enjoyment out of ball they can push around or crinkly catnip toys—or you can try a subscription box. I’ve used a few, and Meowbox is my favorite.
You can choose to get deliveries every one or two months, and they’ll include incredibly cute toys following an equally cute theme plus treats. Getting a few different toys will show you which your cat prefers, and then you can continue getting boxes or cancel without hassle once you’re sufficiently stocked up.
Cats fancy themselves as kings of the household and they love to look down upon their subjects from on high. If your cat loves to climb, the Pet Club 72-inch Cat Tree Large might be just what he needs. This jumbo-sized cat tree measures a full 72-inches tall and features multiple layers of perches, hiding boxes, platforms, and ramps. Whether your cat wants to climb, scratch, or sleep this is the perfect cat tree to enjoy all three. The Pet Club 72-inch Cat Tree Large includes ten scratching posts, two private sleeping apartments, and three elevated platforms. The poles that support these structures are wrapped in rope and the flat surfaces are covered in soft faux fleece for comfort. There is a dangling toy that your cat will love batting around!
