It could help protect felines from snow and freezing temperatures in the winter or thunderstorms in the summer. One of the things that we liked most about this product was that it came with a heating element to help keep cats warm.

Cats are an ideal pet for those who are away from their home frequently because felines can care for themselves throughout the day. However, that doesn’t mean that the cat’s owner won’t miss them any less. If you know a cat owner who suffers from separation anxiety when leaving their pet for the day, consider purchasing them the PetCube Bites Pet Camera with Treat Dispenser.

This hardcover book, which costs around $13 on Amazon, is an excellent choice for anyone who is in love with cats. The book features numerous pictures from professional pet photographer Andrew Marttila, who captures various felines on a “catnip trip.” The book has a 4.9-star rating with more than 280 customer reviews.
Kitten Lady’s Hannah Shaw said that the book “lets us see cats in a whole new light – and it is absolutely hysterical! I roar with laughter over their huge eyes and lashing tongues during these freeze-framed freakouts.” Author Jim Tews added, “There’s nothing funnier than seeing your furry friend gacked out on catnip. Andrew’s shots capture it all so perfectly!”
Purina Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System
If you have recently walked into your friend’s and loved one’s home and were overwhelmed by the smell of their cats, it may be time for them to upgrade their litter box. You can do so for them this holiday season by gifting them the Purina Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System. PetSmart offers the product for a little more than $30. It has a 4.2-star rating on the site with nearly 980 reviews.
The most critical aspect of this litter box is the fact that it comes with a powerful odor control feature. The box uses specially-designed pellets that not only block smell but reduce the likelihood of cats tracking litter through the home. The liter box also relies on absorbent pads with ammonia blockers to absorb the smell of urine. This product could be ideal for those who are not able to change a cat’s litter frequently.
DJ Cat Scratching Pad
If the cat lover in your life has a keen sense of humor, you’ll want to consider gifting them the DJ Cat Scratching Pad. Available on eBay and Uncommon Goods for approximately $35, the scratching pad is in the shape of a DJ table. When a cat uses the pad, it will appear as though they are “scratching” a vinyl record.
The DJ table comes complete with various cat-related decorative stickers, such as “I Love Tuna” and “Run DOG.” We’re confident that this product will make for hours of endless laughs and perhaps an excellent social media post as well.
True Touch Glove
If you know someone who cares for a cat that sheds constantly, consider gifting them the True Touch Glove this holiday season. The glove is quite affordable, costing less than $13 on Amazon. The product has a 3.6-star rating with nearly 1,250 customer reviews. Of those who reviewed the product, nearly half gave it a five-star rating. The glove’s manufacturer, Allstar Innovations, indicates that more than 2.5 million pet owners have purchased the product.
We liked this glove because it mimicked a human hand, which increased the likelihood that the cat would sit still for grooming. There are more than 180 silicone grooming tips on the glove, which grab a cat’s hair. Owners can then pull the hair from the glove and dispose of it quickly.
