Our indoor cats really don’t get a lot of exercise. Many of them live pretty boring lives. Doc & Phoebe’s Cat Co is out to fix that! Their Indoor Hunting Cat Feeder Kit includes a three adorable mice that can hold a bit of food. Your job is to fill the mice with treats or kibble, hide them, and wait for your cat to use her natural hunting instincts!
Supakit has a simple mission: designing cat collars and harnesses that you and your cat love so you can enjoy more adventures together.
Rather than trying to find a puppy harness or Chihuahua collar that fits your cat, purchase gear that’s made specifically with your cat’s body in mind.
Supakit makes vegan cork harnesses that are ultra-comfy. Since most cats aren’t used to harnesses, it’s extra important to make sure that the harness fits well. Again, that’s where Supakit comes in.
Get one for the adventure kitty in your life.
Price: varies, generally $$ – $$$
If you need a simple, affordable stocking-stuffer that will really improve your kitty’s day-to-day, you can’t get better than the Catit Treat Ball!
Throw out your cat’s food bowl and simply fill her treat ball with her daily calorie rations and watch her ignite her natural hunting instincts! Most cats will really enjoy batting around the toy for food. This will alleviate boredom and can also aid in weight loss.
I got my 16-year-old cat one of these and he absolutely loved it even in his old age.
Yet another puzzle toy, you ask? Yes! Our cats simply are too bored to not give them lots of puzzle toys. Rather than reaching for yet another catnip mouse, get creative with puzzle toys.
The Trixie Brain Mover channels your cat’s intelligence with four different games to earn her meals. Each of the games uses different skill sets, pushing your cat to problem-solve creatively.
