The holidays are a great time to spoil your cat, and why not do it in style? Of course, kitty deserves a treat year-round, but why not splurge this season? These holiday gift ideas for cats are sure to spread seasonal cheer:
1. Holiday beds and hideaways
The holidays can be a bit hectic with company coming over and decorations everywhere. Your cat may need a cozy spot to get away from it all and feel safe. Forget hiding under the bed or in the back of the closet, give her a special holiday hideaway that comes out just for the season. There are plenty of fun and festive options!
2. Grooming tools to ensure your kitty looks picture perfect
Make your cat look her best this holiday season with a grooming kit — a gift that can be used year-round. Take time out of your busy schedule to groom your cat. It will be relaxing for both of you, plus it reduces shedding and hairballs. Look for grooming kits specific to the length of your cat’s fur.
3. Festive collars, bow ties and more!
Don’t forget kitty’s holiday wardrobe! Pick out a seasonal collar and maybe an accessory like a bow tie to dress things up. Fluffy will be all set for family photos around the tree.
4. Travel accessories
Taking your cat on a road trip for the holidays? You’ll need a sturdy cat carrier. You’ll want ventilation as well as durable hardware and padded straps to make carrying easier. Pick out something that makes a fun fashion statement!
5. Cat toys
Want to keep kitty from dismantling your holiday decorations? Give her plenty of cat toys to keep her distracted and entertained. Catnip-filled toys will make kitty feel like she’s been hitting the eggnog.
6. Splurge on furniture that both you and your cat will love!
Go all out with a special gift for your cat, and treat yourself at the same time. Splurge on a beautiful piece of furniture that both you and your cat will love having in your home. Gone are the days of ugly cat furniture, and you don’t have to hide the cat tree or scratcher when guests come over.
Choose something that you’ll be proud to show off and that your cat will use daily. Hideaways, beds, scratchers, towers and more — all with distinctive style and unique design. The options are endless!
A word about holiday-specific cat products …
Purchase something for your cat that’s specific to the holidays, maybe an item with festive Christmas colors or something extra fancy. You probably already pack up your own holiday décor and store it away for the following year, so do the same with that special cat bed or toy. It will be exciting and new for your cat every year!
