Holiday Gifts for Cats

As the holiday season ramps up into full swing, many of us are trying to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones. While we can’t help much with deciding what to get your friends and family members, we can offer some suggestions for what to buy your cat! Read on as a local Upper Arlington, OH vet lists some great gifts for cats.


Catnip is the purrfect gift for your feline friend. While Fluffy will certainly be happy with a classic catnip mouse, there are now all sorts of fun ways to give your pet her favorite plant. You can get your furball catnip bubbles, catnip sticks, or catnip pillows, to name just a few. You can also offer Fluffy a small pot of fresh catnip to nibble on.

Smart Toys

There are all sorts of modern kitty toys you can offer your pet. Fluffy may enjoy an automated laser pointer, or a robotic mouse. Another option is a mechanical fish, which ‘swims’ in bowls of water. You can also get a smart toy that will allow you to play with your feline buddy remotely, using an app that connects to a camera and laser pointer. Your kitty may also enjoy toys that record and play back the sound of her voice.

Subscription Box

Did you know that you can sign your cat up for a subscription box? Every month Fluffy will get a box of goodies in the mail. This is a great way to make sure that your frisky feline always has plenty of toys. Plus, watching your furball get her box every month will be super cute!

Pet Furniture

Does Fluffy have a cat tower to play on? If not, this would make a great kitty gift. Cat towers benefit cats in many ways. After all, they offer Fluffy a scratching post, jungle gym, and napping spot, all in one! You can also get your furry pal a pet tent or tipi. These make purrfect gifts for shy or nervous kitties. Beds are another good choice. If you don’t have a lot of room in your budget, go the DIY route and make your kitty’s gifts. You can find some great ideas online!

Happy Holidays! Please do not hesitate to contact us, your local Upper Arlington, OH pet clinic, for all of your cat’s veterinary care needs. We’re here to help!
