Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Cat

Cats can enjoy Christmas, too. And, as cats are considered to be part of the family, it makes sense to make them part of the festivities. Giving your cat a Christmas gift (and letting them tear open the wrapping paper themselves) is a wonderful idea. Below are four Christmas gift ideas for your cat that will ensure that they enjoy a happy holiday.

A catnip toy.

Cats go wild for catnip, so purchasing them anything with catnip in is sure to make them feel happy. There are plenty of catnip toys available in pet stores, but another alternative is to make one yourself. You can purchase little packages of catnip at the pet store, and then knit or sew them a toy, incorporating the catnip into the stuffing.

A new scratching post.

Give them something to exercise those claws on in the new year! A nice new scratching post is sure to look pretty alluring to your cat, and it will also be a great stress reliever for them if you have got lots of relatives coming over to visit during the Christmas season. If your cat needs a little encouragement to use their scratching post, simply rub a little catnip over it and they should get going with it right away.

A cat tower.

A cat tower is a kind of cat gym, but it also a place just to hang out and chill. It is especially great for indoor cats who need to get their exercise from playing around inside your house or apartment. With a cat tower, they can climb, balance, hide and scratch to their heart’s content. There are plenty of different cat towers on the market, so you are sure to have no trouble finding one that your kitty will love. There are also cat towers that are designed to be used by multiple cats at once which of course is perfect if you share your home with several feline companions.

A laser pen.

Obviously not to write with – unless your cat is really clever! A cat safe laser pen will provide you and your cat with hours of fun. Cats love tearing around and chasing that little dot of light from the laser and you can really give them a great workout session as you sit there controlling it from the comfort of your couch. The crucial thing here, though, is to get a pen that is cat safe – if in doubt, ask your vet or ask at the pet store. You want to get a laser that will not damage the cat’s eyes but instead will provide you both with hours of harmless fun.

Which gifts will you choose for your cat?

So there you have it, four festive ideas to get your kitty in to the holiday spirit. Which item will you choose? A cat tower or a catnip toy? A laser pen or a new scratching post? There are plenty of other things to purchase the feline who has it all, however, including new bowls, cat treats and a soft new bed.

Sunday Selfie: Baby Kitten Oreo

Oreo was trying to be cheeky and get out of doing a Sunday Selfie introduction two weeks in a row! Well, that just isn’t acceptable. So, we persevered and with a little bit of trickery we were successful.

Oreo is a shy little thing. She came to us with her sister Peaches who is so much more outgoing and becoming more and more a chatty kitty! Oreo will prefer to hide when we have strangers coming over and took a while to warm up to us. When she came to us she was so fluffy but you could still feel her bones under her skin – she was SO skinny.

Oreo was 1 kitten in a small litter of 3. One of her sisters was a bit of a fatty and was 800grams (Oreo and Peaches were less than half that!). So when it came time for them to choose foster homes they had to be split up (sadly). This way, we are sure that Oreo (and Peaches) both get plenty of food and don’t have to fight for it.

Slowly but surely, Oreo is gaining weight and confidence. She has her favourite treats (cooked chicken) and even enjoys lactose free yoghurt when we give it to her.

Today’s selfie was easy to take once we wore her out and got her to fall asleep.

What do you think – was it sneaky or brilliant?

Today we are focusing on one half of our newest dynamic duo. We have Peaches and Oreo. Today, Oreo did not want to participate. Oreo just wanted to snuggle or hide.

Peaches on the other hand was all about the camera. She knows which is her best side (every side!) and plays to it.

Some of the things we LOVE about her is she is just so friendly. From the very beginning she would purr so loudly whenever you picked her up (and she still does!).

She’s fast and will be the first one on your lap when you sit down. She knows where the prime real estate is in this house. Now that it’s also getting cooler in the Southern Hemisphere she loves to snuggle with dad – he’s so much warmer.

So today was especially difficult to pick just one selfie… so we are a going to bombard you with many!
