Top 5 Feline Christmas Gifts

While everyone is out and about buying the hottest gadgets and styles of the holiday season, let’s take a moment to show our appreciation for our furry feline friends, too! Sure, when you bring something new into the house, your cat(s) may not like said item very much. But, with a little time, and some positive reinforcement, your kitties will love their new gifts. Let’s get started!

5. Indoor Grass
Cats seem to LOVE grass when they are exposed to it. They chew on it, roll in it, and most of all nap in it! You can find indoor grass pretty much anywhere these days, and it will allow you to know what your kitty kids are being exposed to: grass, dirt, water, NO pesticides or other harmful chemicals that we sometimes find on our lawns. Be mindful that your indoor/outdoor cats may use this as a natural potty, so before you let them play in it again, always check to make sure there are no accidents that need to be cleaned. All you need is a nice planter, sunlight, and water. Your cats will have their own private lawn to explore and love!

4. Window Perch
How often do you come home to find your cats resting in the windowsill? Do they bypass the windowsill and go for the back of the couch or lounge chair? Do you spend countless hours with a lint roller removing the hair from the furniture or dusting the hair from the windowsills? STOP! Here is your solution: this windowsill perch from K&H Pet Products is wonderful! It saves you the trouble of cleaning all the hair from your own furniture. But even better than that, it is insulated and warms your kitty! The orthopedic sleeping mat is engineered to set itself automatically between 12- and 15-degrees above the ambient room temperature, and even adjusts to your cat’s body temperature as he lies on it. How awesome is this? Your cats are sure to love you for this one!

3. Heated Beds
As if a heated window perch wasn’t enough, how about a heated, hooded, kitty cave?! You can find so many cat beds with heating pads built in, but think about how often cats try to bury themselves in a blanket. Check out this heated bed for a great Christmas idea. Perfect for those cold winter nights!

Ethan is a senior cat that was surrendered to the shelter by his owner through no fault of his own. He is a very loving and affectionate cat that LOVES to be petted and craves attention. He also does not mind being dressed up as you can see. If interested in adopting Ethan, contact the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter!

2. Heated Play Dens
Are you seeing a trend with most of these items being heated? That’s because I am hoping we are going to have a cold winter again like last year and we want our pets to stay warm and cozy with us! Cats love something warm, and while you're away and your pet sitter is caring for you cat(s), they have something to keep them warm through the cold months. So, the cat condos are pretty awesome, right? How about a heated play den? A surefire way to keep your cats entertained and warm all at the same time!

1. A New Life
What better way to wish a cat a Merry Christmas than with a new, loving home? Visit your local animal shelter or rescue organization to help a cat in need this holiday season. Every cat deserves to be loved, and bringing home a new cat will bring you so much joy! Not only do you get to have a new kitty for Christmas, but your new kitty has a new, loving home! **Remember, cats are for life and should never be given as a gift unless the whole family is in agreement to providing the new cat with their forever home.
