Holiday Gifts for Cats

December 1 2016

Do you plan to get your kitty something special for the holidays this year? If so, you’re in good company: over the next few weeks, thousands, if not millions, of adorable cats will find themselves with new toys or treats. While yummy snacks and fun new playthings will always make great presents for pets, they aren’t the only options. Read on for some great gift ideas for kitties from a Crown Point, IN vet.


Cats are expert nappers, and can sleep a whopping 20 hours a day. Offer your furball a comfy new bed to snooze in.

Grooming Supplies

Our feline friends are very diligent about keeping themselves clean. However, even if Fluffy spends several hours each day grooming herself, she’ll still benefit from regular brushings. Pick up a good brush, and brush your furry little diva regularly.

Veterinary Care

Fluffy may not be happy about visiting us, but we don’t take it personally. Just like any other pet, cats are much healthier with proper veterinary care. Schedule your kitty’s next appointment.

Cat Furniture

Why not get Fluffy a new kitty tower or pet tent? If you’re trying to save money, look online for great DIY options. For instance, you can make a cute kitty tent out of a wire hangar and an old tee shirt in just a few minutes.

Window Seat

We strongly recommend that cats live indoors. However, even if Fluffy can’t go outside to chase birds and squirrels, she’ll still enjoy watching them. A window seat is a great way to activate the purr!

Cat Fountain

Did you know that many cats prefer running water? If you’ve ever noticed Fluffy drinking from a faucet, this could be a great gift for her. (Note: contact your vet immediately if you notice your furry pal drinking more than usual. This can be a sign of illness.)


Does your furball spend a lot of time home alone? Pick up your pet a set of DVD’s for kitties. Fluffy may really like watching footage of fish, birds, or squirrels while you are at work.


There are now lots of fun games that Fluffy can play on your phone or tablet. Download a few, and let your adorable pet try them out. (Results may vary.)

Happy Holidays! Please contact us, your local Crown Point, IN vet clinic, for all your cat’s veterinary care needs.
