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

Uncommon Goods / Money Talks News

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

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.
