The 12 Days of Cat-mas
Great gift ideas for cats and cat lovers
12 Days Of Cat-mas Gifts: Day 1
Every year, we have to solve the problem of what to give the pickiest member of the family – the cat, of course. Although she may love your bed, couch, chair and recliner, every cat needs a place to call their own for lounging, napping and daydreaming purposes. Obviously, it should be soft, fluffy and warm, with luxury craftmanship that befits your cat’s (possibly imagined) status as king or queen of their domain. Enter the Sleepypod Crater Dot, a luxurious lounger with optional warming pad made with a thick foam base that conforms to your cat’s particular shape and ensures the sweetest of dreams.

Naturally, your cat is the life of the party, and will have many glamorous events to attend this holiday season. (I’m personally convinced that my cat thinks that everyone comes over on December 25 to see her.) Make sure he’s looking his sharpest with this awesome red bowtie from Sweet Pickles Designs. Handmade in Portland, OR, each collar is designed to attach to your cat’s everyday collar for easy cat couture. Worried that the red will clash with your cat’s ginger colouring? Sweet Pickles also makes this festive number in black and purple.

Most cats don’t travel well, but you can keep your cat with you always when you’ve got a photo! Personalize your iPhone with Get Uncommon’s awesome, high-quality image reproducing services. Upload a photo of a favourite feline into Get Uncommon’s system and they will ship you your cover super-quick. If you’d prefer a cute cover for your iPad, they’ll help you with that as well. But hurry – they need your order by December 14th to ensure delivery for Christmas Day.
12 Days Of Cat-mas Gifts: Day 4
My cats love catnip, but I hate vacuuming up all the bits of dried plant when they are done rolling around in it. (It’s hell on the carpets.) SuperCat Catnip Markers are a quick, no-mess way to spread catnip on all the things you want your cat to love (like the scratching post she’s eschewing in favour of the couch). The catnip is enclosed in microbubbles, which break apart and release catnippy goodness into the air. The ink in these markers is non-staining and non-toxic, making it safe for both your cat and your furniture.

We love this scratcher/lounger combo from Pet Fusion – satisfies the need to nap and scratch! It’s made from super-scratchable cardboard, and its elegant design means that there is no need to hide this one away.
