16 of the Best Gifts for Cat Lovers
This roundup of 16 of the best gifts for cat lovers, like my compilation of 17 of the best gifts for dog lovers, includes both pet care items that will give your kitty something to meow! about, and cat-themed human items that will give you as a cat lover something to...well, if you love our feline friends as much as I think you do - like, as much as the dude in the photo above does - you probably won't be above meow!-ing your approval too.
Note: products are priced as they were at printing. Pricing, and availability, are subject to change.
Puking Kitty Gravy Boat
The Puking Kitty Gravy Boat is bllleeeccchhh! for 2020, and ready to upchuck some creamy goodness in 2021. In 2012 the couple behind the Puking Kitty puked up their first gravy boat in the likeness of their rescue cat, Mr. B. They ran the design as a Kickstarter project, and supporters pounced on it. The first run sold out, and the Puking Kitty took an 8-year hiatus.
Recently though, Bill Maher revisited the Puking Kitty Gravy Boat on his Real Time show, and it - along with the entirety of 2020, I'd imagine - inspired the hacker-upper's return to market.
Do You Look Like Your Cat? Memory Game
Do you look like your cat? I don't think I look like mine. For example, my cat, Zanzibar, has a bushy tortoiseshell coat of fur that covers his entire body, while I myself am almost entirely hairless (thanks, Remington Shortcut!) with a skin color currently somewhere between school glue and wood glue. My wife has pointed out that we both get the exact same look of disdain on our faces when we see each other, but I'm not sure that's enough to qualify us for this Match the Cats with Their Humans! memory game.
DoyenCat Sushi Chef FunBox with Scratching Board
If your cat is the next Jiro Ono of sushi chefs, but he eats every single piece of hamachi and maguro sashimi he slices before giving you any, does he still deserve a DoyenCat Sushi Chef FunBox with scratching board floor?
If he's willing to stick his head in the hole and make viral Instagram faces like the cat in the photo above, then I'd say yes. Eat up, greedy Itamae!
Become Your Cat Mask
Wanna be a copycat? Like, copy your cat and become a copy of your cat? Yeah, you probably do.
And if you already own the Licki Brush the news that Japanese company Shinto Michiya will make you a furry human-head-sized replica mask of your own Goose or Bella may have just made you
pee your pants soil your litterbox. Hope you've got the $2,700+ in cash it's going to cost you to go full-on SWF.
That's Single Wacked-out Feline.
Sorry, I'm just assuming you're single.
MS Modern Cat Litter Box
Is it a suitcase? Is it a speaker? Is it...Are you kitten me right meow, hooman?! It's a litter box! And not just any litter box. A snazzy, private, MS Modern Cat Litter Box, available in Classic White, Moss Green, Sweet Pink, or, Sassy the Floof's favorite, Tiffany Blue. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but it takes a purrrdy and purrrsonal poop spot to win the heart of Sassy the Floof.
Indiana Jones Cat Bridge
This listing is for an Indiana Jones Cat Bridge, but it appears that in order to make it a viable lounging place for your own cat, you will also have to construct an entire Temple of the Chachapoyan Warriors to assist Indi-Kitty Jones in accessing it. Look at all those steps and structures Catastrophic Creations has installed leading up to the doorway bridge. I bet there's a rolling boulder in there somewhere too. The cats' furniture and toys have taken over the living room! This is almost as bad as having kids.
Cat-Opoly is a Monopoly for people who really, really, really like cats. And cat videos, cat memes, cat selfies, cat forums, cat Reddit threads.... Yes, it's basically Monopoly for crazy cat ladies (and crazier cat dudes). And I'm not just saying that based on the title or the catification of the iconic board and tokens. I'm saying that based on the rules of play, which are to buy up as many cats as you can. The Tonkinese, the Ragdoll, the Abyssinian, the Sphinx, the Maine Coon - better start winning those dolla dolla bills 'cause it's cat hoarding time!
The Kitty Pass Interior Cat Door
"The Kitty Pass" sounds a little odd, but I guess they couldn't really call it "The Kitty Hole" without experiencing some PR backlash, now could they?
This interior cat door is made for installation at the base of the barrier between your family and your cat's smelly, vile, noxious litter box. Sorry, but it's true. I can't tell you how many people I've heard go on about how their cat's litter / box is so contained and transcendent that "no one who comes over can even tell a cat lives here!" And the first thing I smell when I walk in the door is cat.
Neko Cup Cat Mold - Put a Cat on It
Use a Neko Cup cat mold to build yourself a whole beach of sand CATsles. Maybe a nice Raspberry Ragdoll-O Salad. Or just use Morii Yuka's cute kitty molds as sculptures, beige, black, or white pieces of home decor that make perfect gifts for pet lovers who want to add some feline flair to their coffee tables, couches, or - let's be realistic - the dead center of their favorite pillow in bed.
How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety
A must-read for every cat parent! How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety: And Abstinence, Drugs, Satanism, and Other Dangers That Threaten Their Nine Lives consolidates 8 crucial public service pamphlets into a clear, Q&A-style book that will help all cat owners teach their kitties to stay safe, be smart, and make good, maybe even purrrfect, decisions.
Cat Camp Cat Tents
Cat Camp Cat Tents aren't just charming twists on cat beds that look like human tents on the outside. They are real, multi-part tents through and through. Cat Camp calls themselves "the world's first specialized tent maker for cats!" and handmakes all of their tents the same as those built as mini display tents for outdoor stores.
You even have to pitch them.
Legal in all 50 states! Though I'm pretty sure Catnip Joints are the inverse of marijuana joints. In the sense that all the cats I've ever seen lie around and sleep all day, pausing only to look at you with complete disinterest and excruciatingly slow blinks, until they get their paws on some catnip. Then they're darting and rolling and hopping all over the living room like an epileptic monkey on hot coals. Me, that's what I'm like if I haven't smoked a joint.
Catnip Joints...for recreational use...deliver a 100% premium catnip buzz. Their hand-rolled and sealed cloth wrappers contain no fillers, only pure leaves and buds.
Crafting with Cat Hair
The second part of this book's title is Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat. Now let's think about that for a second. It's preposterous to imagine you and your cat could team up on craft night to make some dog voodoo dolls and tuna fish-scented glitter balls for him to chase around the living room. Right?
But I'd rather think a book believes that's possible than the reality of the situation. Which is that when author Kaori Tsutaya says she has some cute handicrafts to make with your cat, she means she has some cute handicrafts to make out of your cat. Crafting with Cat Hair is her M.O.
O.M. ... G.
Delectables SqueezeUps - Go-Gurt for Cats
I can has creamy tuna Go-Gurt? Yes, cats of the world, thanks to Delectables SqueezeUps, you can. Fire up your tongue and mind your claws because this is how this treat session's gonna go: I hold and squeeze, you lick and nomnomnom.
Packaged like Go-Gurt, textured like pudding, and colored like Soylent, Delectables SqueezeUps are tuna- or chicken-flavored purees stuffed into a lickable tube that gives cat owners the interactive opportunity to hand-feed their pets a tasty treat. And, more importantly, maybe get some Insta worthy photos and vids in the process.
Kleenex-Munching Cat Tissue Box Cover
Nevermind your tongue, cat got your Kleenex? Here's hoping he's feeling generous once your allergies kick in.
These tissue box covers feature an attention-grabbing cat head with a triangular hole in its mouth for dispensing tissues. Adding to the peculiarity of the product is its furry coat, outlining the brick shape of standard rectangular Kleenex boxes. The coat looks nothing like any cat fur I've ever seen, but maybe that's a reassuring indication that no cats were skinned and beheaded to make these tissue box covers.
Guys Can Be Cat Ladies Too
I kept searching for more at the end of the Guys Can Be Cat Ladies Too book title. Some ellipses leading into a second line of ...if They Want to Die Alone on the Couch with the A-holes, Who Will Then Eat Their Owners' Raw Dead Bodies to Support Their Own Survival and Contentment Since That's the Only Thing They Care About Anyway. But it didn't go on to say that, or anything besides Guys Can Be Cat Ladies Too, so I guess Michael Showalter's 175-page literary release really is a guide to man-cat bonding.
