  1. There are certainly some unusual cat gift ideas here on your site Jim and I absolutely love the Cat Bed Cave … It looks so cute, I think I’m need to order one of these right now. Keep up the great work on the site and look forward to seeing what more goodies you discover for all of us cat lovers ! Take care. Richard

    1. Very pleased that you liked the gift ideas mentioned in the article Richard. Yes I also like the cat bed cave and will be getting one soon to test it out on my feline companion. Thank you for those kind comments.


  2. Hi Jimmy,
    You’re so right, kitty definitely deserves a gift for all the affection and the laughs she’s given me over the past year. She’s not as playful as she used to be when she was younger, but I know that she’ll love the 2 in 1 Cat Scratcher Toy – she does like her scratch beam, but I’m sure this one will beat it, and who knows, maybe she’ll even play around a bit once she is done scratching.
    I really like your site and I’ll be back for more!

  3. I’ve been searching for some gift ideas, and looks like I stumbled upon the perfect post! This is a great read, thank you for sharing! Happy Holidays!


  4. I wasn’t sure what to get my cat. She is an itty-bitty little thing and prefers very small mice and things like that. I love the warming blanket though. As you said, they find the warmest place in the house and for her that is buried under the bedcovers snuggled between the two pillows. I always find her there but I bet this blanket might get her out of there.

    I like the Mystery Motion Cat Toy but it might scare her. I know, most cats love that stuff but this girl had a rough beginning with her previous owner so I take special care to not scare or upset her. Even after four years with me, her instinct of fear takes over if I have made a loud noise or curse because 4-litre bottle of pop I was handling tipped and splattered all over the floor and wall. She ran like heck at the time and I didn’t see her for hours. I just leave her be. I know she’ll come to me. It breaks my heart that she is so scared because deep down she knows I will never ever hurt her.

    Thanks for all the ideas. Sorry for the ramble. I just love her so much. She’s my bff. 🙂

    1. Thank you for that excellent feedback Wendy. We had a similar experience about odd places where cats snooze as my son’s kitten Lily used to sleep under our bed sheets at the foot of our bed! We were always worried she would suffocate there! As you say the self warming blanket might be your best bet!

      Yes some cats are very nervous creatures. Our current ginger tomcat Oscar is one of these. Any loud noises and he is off!

      We all love our cats Wendy. They are great company for us.


  5. It must have been so much fun searching for unique and unusual cat gifts to show case here! You certainly found some great ones!
    My personal favorite is the self-warming blanket. Does it come in human size? Just kidding. Seriously… it’s like they can get sunshine and lap warmth whenever they want it with that thing! Pretty neat. 🙂
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  6. My cat is always sneaking at my bed during the night due to dropping temperature. On my research on how to prevent my cat from hiding in my blankets, I found your website. the Cat Bed Cave is great hideout for my cat.

  7. I have a cat called Garfield he is so lazy and adorable, I think these items will surely make him jump and get fit, the best part they ain’t expensive! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this awesome post and for taking care of our adorable pets! 🙂

  8. Hi James. I am a crazy cat lady. My cats rule the house. I love all the toys you have showed here, the cat cave is really cute, but I would need a large one. My cats sleep together. Well put together website, great pictures and links. Good job.

  9. I love the 3 way tunnel! Most importantly, I know my cats will love it! They are always running behind my couch and bed, so I think this will be fun for them. These are all awesome gift ideas for my little furballs! Thanks for these great suggestions!
    From Your Fellow Cat Lover,

  10. One of the best ways to show how much you love your furry companion is to get a gift for them that they’ll appreciate and enjoy in your absence. That is why I think most of these gift ideas that you shared in your article are amazing as they’ll be able to keep them busy for a long time and also help them have fun. 

  11. Loving these choices James!

    I’ve never seen any of these before besides the cat sofa and cave of course, but the Pawaboo Cat Toy with Running Mouse really sounds interesting. I’ve bought so many toys for my cat that it feels bored already and stopped playing but having this contraption could really make my cat curious, I can already imagine ahaha.

  12. What an awesome review you have here! It looks so cute, I think I’m gonna need to order one of these right now,  because I am planning to get a pet cat and I must get one of these gifts for my new kitty. It must have been so much fun searching for unique and unusual cat gifts to showcase here! You certainly found some great ones!

  13. Thank you for this insightful article about cats. I believe it would be really helpful in helping me understand the the products listed as it is so precise and timely in representing what i really was expecting. I have bookmarked it and wouldn’t mind sharing it to other of my friends that i think would need to read this too, i expect more contents from you in the near future. Gracias.

    1. Thank you for those comments Tosin and so pleased that you found my article helpful to you. Yes please share it with your friends. Best wishes to you. Jim

  14. Hi James, I am quite fascinated with your website. My cat would certainly enjoy some of the gifts you showed on your post. Cats do like to chase things, so the mouse would be a great toy. Digging for kibble and treats would be one way to control her appetite and make her put forth some energy to get her food. My cat likes to hide, and the Merino Wool bed cave would be ideal for that. Give a cat a moving string, and she won’t be able to sit still. It would give her plenty of activity. As my cat ages, she likes a warm place to sleep. Having something that is machine washable is a great idea for a bed. I don’t know which one I should get for her for Christmas!!

    1. Great comments Carolyn and I am pleased you liked the gift suggestions made in the article. Hope you find something suitable for your cat for Christmas! Jim

  15. I really love the idea of giving your cat not just an affordable gift – but a unique one as well, particularly one to help keep him or her fit. The Pawaboo Cat Toy with Running Mouse, I think is my favorite. So unique and looks like a lot of fun. I don’t think people realize the importance of keeping your cat in good shape and entertained as well. Not only does it prolong the life of your pet, but frequent engaging activity also keeps your cat out of trouble too. Great article.

    1. Many thanks for those great comments Tiffany. Cats and their owners do get bored at times and need a few fun things to add some spice to life. Jim

  16. Hello there
    A very fantastic piece of work from you. Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece of information with us. I must say I really did enjoy going through every line on your review as it contains valuable information one needs to be aware of. Seeing this would make me picture the right gift to give to my daughter’s cat.
    Thanks for pulling this together .

    1. Thank you my friend. Pleased to read that you enjoyed my article and I hope you find a suitable gift for your daughter’s cat. Jim

  17. My cat has always been my best companion in the year since I got it, It always stays around me and is great company. Getting a gift for Ruby my cat will be the least I can do for the joy it gives. I would love to get the aspen warm pet bed, so we could sit together and watch movies after work hours.

  18. What a great topic ! I have 4 furry friends of which 2 are still kittens. I will absolutely check this out. I’d never think of cat toys as a subject for an article, but you nailed it.

    I buy them small mice and they love it. But I am sure they’ll love these too.

  19. Hello! It must have been so much fun searching for unique and unusual cat gifts to show case here! You certainly found some great ones. My personal favorite is the self-warming blanket. Does it come in human size? Just kidding. Seriously… it’s like they can get sunshine and lap warmth whenever they want it with that thing!
