It’s that time of year again! The trees are decorated, the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and you’re racking your brain trying to think of the perfect gifts for your loved ones.
There is no denying that cats are one of the most beloved pets in the world. They are independent, but also enjoy spending time with their people. They are playful, but also like to take a break and relax.
With that in mind, what could be better than finding the perfect stocking stuffers for cats this holiday season? Whether you are looking for something small and simple or something bigger and more extravagant, there is sure to be something on this list that your cat will love!
Cats need stimulation and exercise, just like people do. Toys are the perfect way to provide both for your feline friend. There are all kinds of great toys on the market these days, from simple string toys to interactive games that challenge your cat’s mind. No matter what type of toy you choose, be sure to get one that’s specifically designed for cats—they’re not always interested in the same things as dogs!
You can even get creative and make your own DIY toys out of things like cardboard boxes or toilet paper rolls. Just be sure to supervise your kitty while they’re playing with their new toys so they don’t end up swallowing anything they shouldn’t.
A New Blanket
Cats love lounging around on soft blankets, and it’s a great way to keep them warm during the winter months. You can find all sorts of different types of blankets made just for cats.
A Comfy New Bed
Cats spend a lot of time sleeping—up to 16 hours a day! So why not give them a bed that’s comfortable and stylish? There are all kinds of great options available these days, from traditional pet beds to elevated beds that offer support for older cats or those with joint problems. There are also simple mats or more elaborate beds shaped like boats or caves. You can even find heated beds that will keep your kitty warm on cold winter nights! Give your cat the gift of comfort this holiday season with a new bed.
Is there anything cats love more than catnip? This perennial herb is beloved by felines for its ability to induce a state of euphoria. Just a few sniffs of catnip and your kitty will be rolling around in ecstasy! From stuffed animals to balls and everything in between, your cat will love playing with their new toys and getting nice and fuzzy in the process.
What’s better than giving your cat a tasty treat? Whether they’re crunchy or soft, flavored with tuna or chicken, cats love treats! And what’s even better is that there are now treats available that offer health benefits like aiding in digestion or reducing hairballs. No matter which type of treat you choose, your cat is sure to love it.
A Bow Tie
If your cat looks down his or her nose at the latest fashions and hates wearing any accessories, skip this suggestion.
However, if your cat is the fashion-savvy type, he or she will love getting a new bling collar or bow tie in their stocking. You can even get them personalized with your cat’s name or a festive holiday pattern. Either way, they’ll be sure to turn heads when they strut their stuff around the neighborhood.
New ID Tag
Every good pet owner knows that their furry friend should always have a collar with an ID tag in case they ever get lost. If yours is starting to look a bit worn out or if he or she doesn’t have an ID tag, consider getting a new one this year. There are all sorts of great collars and ID tags available these days, so you’re sure to find something that suits both your taste and your budget. Plus, it could save your kitty’s life if they ever go on an adventure without you.
Does your kitty need a little help staying free of stray fur?
A New Scratching Post
Cats love to scratch, so why not give them a new scratching post to help them stay sharp?
Scratching posts provide cats with a place to scratch that isn’t your couch or rug. They also give cats a chance to stretch their muscles and keep their nails healthy. Most scratching posts are also covered in fabric or carpet, which gives cats another place to rub their scent. Cats love them, and you’ll love not having your furniture shredded!
Scratching posts come in all shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find one that fits both your cat’s needs and your home décor. Plus, it’ll save your furniture from being used as a scratching post! Win-win.
No matter what kind of cat you have in your life, we hope this list has given you some ideas for the perfect stocking stuffers for them! From toys and treats to practical items like collars and ID tags, there’s something here for every feline friend.
