Black Friday and Cyber Monday: The Best Deals for Cat Lovers

Save in-store and online from these pet supply retailers -- stock up on everything your cat needs.

Melvin Pena  |  Nov 25th 2014


Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest days for retail in the United States. Whether you’re looking for the perfect scratching post or stocking up on supplies to get your cat through the winter, there are a multitude of bargains available. You will find savings online and in-store throughout the entire Thanksgiving weekend and beyond! Here are details on the deals we’ve found so far.

Up to 40 percent savings at Doctors Foster and Smith

From Wednesday, November 26, through the end of Cyber Monday, Doctors Foster and Smith, a pet-supply retailer owned by veterinarians, is offering site-wide discounts of up to 40 percent. Specific bargains to look out for:

Don’t miss: Are you tired of your cat constantly leaving hair all over your furniture? Is the cat ignoring the perfectly good cat bed you picked up for her during the last holiday season? With deep discounts on private-label products, now is the ideal time to try out a Doctors Foster and Smith furniture throw. They’re specifically designed to trap cat hair and are machine washable!

Save up to 30 percent at LazyBonezz.com

LazyBonezz was founded and is still run by a mother-daughter team. They offer an assortment of premium and designer products for cats that enjoy being pampered, and, as far as I understand, that applies to every cat. A percentage of every sale is donated to the Humane Society of New York.

  • Black Friday only: Save 30 percent site-wide with code: BLACK30
  • Cyber Monday only: Save 25 percent site-wide with code: CYBER25
  • Free shipping on orders totaling more than $39, with limited restrictions.

Don’t miss: Ever feel like taking your cat for a walk, only to remember that he has absolutely no interest in doing so? With the Lazy Jogger from LazyBonezz, you can enjoy a brisk stroll without the need of a harness or cat leash! Imagine people’s surprise when they ask to see your baby and find a mewling kitten curled up inside! Precious moments.

Save up to 50 percent at Petco on Black Friday and Saturday

To get the most out of your visit to the local Petco or online at Petco.com, you’ll need to have or sign up for their Pals Rewards program, which is quick and free. You’ll need it to take advantage of these deals!

  • In-store and online: 50 percent off select gifts on Black Friday and Saturday, November 28 and 29.

Black Friday only

  • In-store only: Free ornament picture frame and a $20 Shutterfly gift with any purchase, while supplies last.
  • Online: Free $20 Shutterfly gift with purchase, while supplies last.

Deals of up to 60 percent off in-store and online at PetSmart

We would be here all day if I were to list all the deals that PetSmart has on offer for the 2014 holiday shopping season. Maximize your savings by making sure you’re registered for the free PetPerks membership. Here are a few of the highlights!

First 100 customers in-store, Black Friday only

  • Receive a free, treat-laden pet stocking.
  • A coupon for $5 off a $50 purchase, good that day only.
  • Scratch card — one winner per store gets a $100 gift card; one grand prize winner will be awarded a trip for four people and one pet to Beverly Hills, California.
  • Most brick-and-mortar locations open at 7 a.m.; check your local store’s hours.

There are almost too many outrageous deals and specials at PetSmart. I’m particularly intrigued by the Whisker City Santa Cat Cape. My cat isn’t much for these kinds of accoutrements, but she is 16 years old now and spends most of the day sleeping, so I might get her one to don on special occasions!

Online only, from November 29 through December 3

Don’t forget Small Business Saturday!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just two chances for you to get phenomenal deals for all of your cat’s needs. Small Business Saturday is on November 29. It encourages us to remember that local independent pet stores depend on our patronage as well!

North Carolina’s Unleashed: The Dog & Cat Store, for instance, began as a pop-up shop at the state fair in 2007, and through dedication and community support now has five locations! For Small Business Saturday, any purchase of $20 or more at any Unleashed store will get you a free holiday squeak toy!
