The only thing better than a holiday that lasts eight days is a cat who has nine lives. When you combine the two, you get a whole lot more than 17. There are plenty of fun and creative Hanukkah gifts for cats and cat owners this season. Here is a sampling ÔÇª that only scratches the surface.
Let’s face it, you don’t need to do much with catnip to make it the BEST TOY EVER to a cat. When I was a kid, we used to sprinkle catnip into a Tupperware container and watched with glee as Mr. Katz got his drooly face stuck inside it trying to get at every last bit of irresistible nip.
But on Etsy, you can find many varieties of catnip toys, including this set of dreidel and gelt. It’s made of 100 percent recycled felt and certified organic catnip.
