Cat people are everywhere. Forget the stereotype of the woman who lives alone and has a dozen felines purring around her feet: Cats are beloved by men, women, children, teens, northerners, southerners, Democrats, Republicans, you name it.
If there’s a feline fancier in your life — and we know there is — take a few minutes to prowl through this purr-fect collection of cat-related gifts. They’re clawsome.
1. Laptop cat-scratching pad
If you’ve got a laptop and own cats, you’ve almost surely walked away from it and returned to find Fluffy sprawled across the keyboard, merrily texting “phffffffffbt” to your boss or your mom. Give her a scratching-post laptop of her own (complete with “mouse” and frame for a replaceable monitor image) from Uncommon Goods and she’ll not only stay away from yours, but also keep her claws trimmed.
2. Fur-tune cookie cat toy
This cute fortune-cookie-shaped organic catnip toy from Modcloth even has a cat-appropriate fortune: “Blame it on the dog.” Since your cat can’t indulge in a big dish of kung pao chicken, this is the next best thing.
3. Cat jewelry stand
This classically catty jewelry stand from Fuego is a change of pace: For once, cats will help you keep track of your valuables instead of knocking them under the bed or batting them beneath the coffee table.
4. Cat wine stopper
Pinot meow! This cat wine stopper will keep your opened vino fresh, plus decorate the bottle with a bit of cat-titude.
5. Cat tiki mugs
Raise a glass to your furry friends with this set of cat-themed tiki mugs. Just remember the old saying: You’re not drinking alone if your cat’s home. Get four from Archie McPhee.
6. Cat paper-towel holder
Dogs may fetch the newspaper for you, but most cats prefer no chores, thank you very much. This cast-iron paper-towel-holder cat from Signals defies the stereotypes and actually helps out around the house.
7. Cat water fountain
Ever discovered Mittens up on your bathroom sink, lapping away at a dripping faucet? No question, cats love running water, and this adorable flower-themed water fountain from Petco lets them drink up with no extra work on your part.
8. Pusheen box subscription
Forget Garfield and Grumpy Cat: The cat of the moment is Pusheen, created by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff in 2010 for an online comic strip. If someone you know is a Pusheen fan, sign them up for the Pusheen subscription box.
They’ll receive a gift box stuffed with vinyl figures, clothing, sunglasses, pencil cases, popsicle molds, shower curtains — anything and everything with cute little Pusheen on it. Rates are cheaper if you pre-pay for a year, but you can also just buy one box.
