Unique Holiday Gifts For Cat Lovers


The holiday shopping season is definitely in full swing and since we talked about Christmas gifts for dogs and their owners on Black Friday, we thought it only fitting to mention some ideas for unique Christmas gifts for cats (and their owners) since today is Cyber Monday!

Got a lot of cat-lovers on your holiday your shopping list this year? Here are some funny, sweet, and unbelievably unique fun stuff for kittens, cats, and the people that love them. We hope you enjoy these holiday gifts for cat lovers. We think they’re purrfect for four-legged friends and their owners.

1. Safety First

While using a seat-belt type harness generally works well for dogs, cats tend to do better, in general, in a carrier. There’s something about the security of an enclosed place that cats seem to like.

SturdiShelter Car-GO Single Bordeaux Portable Pop Up Carrier (19This is the SturdiShelter Car-GO Single Bordeaux Portable Pop Up Carrier from PETCO, designed to make it easy to bring your small pet’s entire home with you. All SturdiShelters(TM) arrive in an over-sized carrying case with room for shelter accessories, food, water, meds, vet records, toys and other travel essentials. There’s an external vinyl water bottle pocket that allows use of a bottle with a spout that can extend into the shelter through a grommet, allowing you to see the water level and avoid spillage.

SturdiShelters(TM) are designed to create a “zone of safety” for your cats when traveling in the car. Secure to the seat by threading the vehicles’ seat belt/shoulder harness through the seat belt loops on the back of the Car-GO and clip in. Use in your home, the car, hotel, RV or as the foundation for your pet’s emergency preparedness plan. Includes a deluxe “egg-crate” style fleece pad for the utmost comfort.

8. Self-Flushing Litter “Box”

This uber-cool, potty looking litter box is the CatGenie 120 Self Flushing, Self Cleaning Cat Box. Touted as the greenest cat box ever, we definitely think it’s one of the cleanest choices for cat owners who have a litter box. Got someone on your holiday gift list who’s sick and tired of their traditional litter box? Blow them away with this ‘out of the box’ idea.

CatGenie 120 requires a one-time, simple hook up to cold water and an electric outlet. It uses litter-like washable granules to satisfy your cats need to dig and cover. When kitty goes, the liquid drains away from the Granules so only the waste gets flushed down the drain. When cleaning starts, the GenieHand scoops out the solid waste, which gets liquefied for safe, easy removal. Now, you can either push a button, set the timer, or have your cats start the CatGenie cleaning process. Cat Activation is the cleanest and most efficient method.

Plus, Cherrybrook has a variety of Holiday Items icon for people who are passionate about pets.

9. Cat-Opoly?!

Yep, Cat-Opoly is the Monopoly game for cat-lovers. A feline frenzy of fun. Buy your favorite cats such as the Tonkinese, the Ragdoll, the Abyssinian, the Sphinx, or the Maine Coon. Land on Catnip and collect everything in the center of the board. Collect Litter Boxes and trade them in for Fish Bones.

You may have to pay dog tax to get past the neighborhood bully, a spike collared bulldog, or worst of all, you may fall in the water and be out for three turns. Cat-astrophic! There’s nothing madder than a wet cat! Cat-opoly is great fun for family and friends.

10. Fling Ama String Toy

Though it’s kind of a weird name for a toy, we watched the video they have on the product page and think it looks like tons of fun for a cat (and the people watching). Fling-ama-string hangs from a doorknob and flips a string out to grab your cat’s attention and then pulls the string back in, enticing your cat to chase it. The string action stops as soon as it feels the slightest resistance and then resumes pulling as soon as your cat lets go.

Three AA batteries and Fling Ama String will have your cat stalking, pouncing, and leaping!

Plus, All Pets Considered offers a wonderful selection of gifts for pet lovers, most of which are available in a large variety of breed choices.

About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).


  1. I bought the Fling-Ama-String. My 10 year old cat looked at it & walked away(as usual). My 2 year old was the one I intended it for but thought if the 10 year old got into it, that was an added bonus. My 2 year old likes it. But she’s smart – too smart for her own good sometimes! LOL She lays on the floor in front of it & watches it – getting the rhythm pattern down. Then she sits & waits & catches it with her paw. Doesn’t matter if its the high or low setting – after about 30 minutes she is bored & walks away. There is no cat doing flips or jumping all over the place. At least not in my house! My cat will even lay on her back & watch & catch it. LOL So as much as I think its a creative fun cat toy, I thinks its a bit over priced.
    I have owned self cleaning litter boxes for the past 8 years. I SWEAR BY THEM!! I originally had the littermaid but got sick of the mess & they usually only lasted about a year before the motor broke down. I have owned 2 of the Scoop Free litter boxers for almost 3 years now with absolutely no problems!! And less mess because its crystal & not clay litter! 🙂

  2. Nice information, valuable and excellent design, good ideas with lots of great information and inspiration, both of which we all need, thanks for all the enthusiasm to offer such helpful information here.
