As a proud cat owner, I spoil my cats by buying them expensive food and toys.

There is always something missing, no matter how many times I go to the pet store.

So when it comes to Christmas, I love receiving something for my cats too; it makes me happy, saves some money, and I know they would appreciate it too.

If you are looking for a gift for a cat owner, pick one from the list below, and you will get it right!

Blanket and cushions

Cats love boxes, but they love them even more if you put inside them a soft cushion. The cat’s bed gets even more comfortable with a soft and cozy blanket. These two items are essential for a perfect place where to nap during cold months.

There are also beds you can hang to the radiator for cats sensitive to cold temperatures.

My cats wander outside, so I wash their blankets often because they get filthy fast. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough blankets for my five cats, so I can’t help buying more during sales.

Self-cleaning litter box

If you have ever had a cat, you know how annoying it is to clean its litter. If its toilet isn’t clean, it won’t use it and end up making its needs on any surface. Self-litter boxes can be expensive and take up a lot of space in the house, but they are surely appreciated by any cat owner that doesn’t have to rush to clean their pet’s toilet.

Cat cooling mat

Cats love spending hours sleeping in hot places; they like the warm weather and sunny days, but when summer gets too hot, they suffer too.

A cat cooling mat can be a handy present if the receiver lives in a place where temperatures get high during the summer months or travel a lot with their pet in the car.

A friend of mine has a summer house on an island; when she goes there by car, she has to take a ferry, and the travel can last a whole day. She ensures her cats have all they need to be comfortable, including a couple of colling mats.
