Purrfect Holiday Gifts for Fluffy

The holiday season is officially here! As you start choosing presents for your loved ones, don’t forget to pick up a few things for your feline pal! Read on as a local London, ON vet lists some great holiday gifts for kitties.

Beds

We’re not sure why cats are always so tired. Is looking cute really that difficult? Regardless of the reason, it’s safe to say that Fluffy will appreciate a comfy new bed. Or two. Or three.

Toys

Kitties are absolutely hilarious when they are feeling playful. Pouncing and jumping is lots of fun for Fluffy. It’s also great for her, both mentally and physically. Get your furry pal some new playthings to bat around. You can go with something traditional, like catnip mice or plastic balls. Or, opt for a more modern plaything, like a remote-controlled mouse.

Treats

Our feline friends can be finicky at times, but most of them do enjoy treats. Store-bought treats are fine, but you can also make your own. Your cat may also appreciate a can of plain tuna in water, or some sodium-free broth. Just be sure to stick with things that are safe for kitties.

Boxes

Fluffy certainly does love boxes. When everyone has finished opening their gifts, let your cat have some of the empty boxes. You can even make your pet her own box castle. This is a great project for kids!

Pet Fountain

Did you know that many cats prefer to drink running water? Get your feline buddy a kitty fountain!

Catnip

Catnip would definitely make the list of Fluffy’s favorite gifts. Of course, not all kitties enjoy catnip. If your furry friend doesn’t care for it, try offering her honeysuckle instead.

Window Seat

Sunbathing is one of Fluffy’s favorite activities. Buy or make your kitty a comfy window seat, so she can relax, sunbathe, and spy on local wildlife.

Kitty Furniture

Kitties aren’t shy about using our beds, chairs, and sofas, but they do enjoy having some things that were made just for them. Cat towers are great gifts! They offer your furball a vantage point, a napping spot, a nail-care station, and a jungle gym. You can buy one, or make your own by repurposing a stepladder, bookcase, or metal storage rack.
