A wall mounted cat capsule — you might as well sell your TV, because once this is in your home your liquified kitto is the only thing you’ll be looking at.

Promising review: “This product brings us endless joy. I installed it eight feet off the ground and at first worried it was too high for the cats. I kept a small blanket in there and coaxed them in with treats so they’d get use to stepping into the curve. I eventually took the blanket out and now our youngest cat has claimed this as his spot and LOVES it. We love to see all the different ways he squishes his body into a liquid to sleep.” —V

An elevated cat bed for fancy cats who like sleeping in a secure space (the rounded shape and raised frame makes them feel extra safe) and fancy cat parents who like pet furniture that isn’t an eye-sore.


Promising review: “This is even cuter in person, my kitties love it. It’s big enough for the larger cats and small enough for the baby one to climb all over.” —Tomislav

Get it from Wayfair for $177.99.



A Ripple Rug — an interactive play mat (made out of recycled plastic bottles!) that’ll allow your cat to hide, sleep, scratch, groom, pounce, and play in new ways as the mat slides, crinkles, and shifts.,,

This has a non-skid bottom, so your cats can be as aggressive as they want without it slipping under them. It’s also a great option for multi-cat households.

Promising review: “The Mecca of cat toys. Straight out of the box, all five of my cats took to it, RIGHT AWAY! If only I was the genius who would have thought of this product, but I’m ecstatic nonetheless. I have a very timid cat who gets pushed out of everything, as you can see in the group picture (above, left); but later, she got to investigate and played for a good half hour! I can’t get her to play with anything alone, so this was huge after seven whole years. I always have to instigate play with her, until this came into our lives today! I am so completely pleased. When she attacks the holes and hears the hook and loop pull, she freaks out and runs circles around it for her next attack. You won’t be let down. This is the best entertainment ever, especially for the cat lady and cat dad involved. We hurt from laughing. JUST BUY IT!” —Katie

Get it from Amazon for $43.70.



A three-pack of candy valentine toys – they’re gonna be the best way to ask your independent critter if they’d be your valentine.


We are a happy Chewy household in my place. This is my one-stop shop for food, litter, and toys. I am a sucker for holiday decorations and I love getting my cats’ toys that fit the seasons. I’ve had Chewy’s Halloween and Christmas boxes and I’ll be grabbing their Valentine’s Day toys next! The toys are always super cute, the treats seem to be tasty (can’t say I’ve tried them myself), and my cats take to it all instantly.

Promising review: “My cats don’t usually take to toys very quickly (unless it’s hair ties, cotton swabs, or paper) but one of my cats loved these cute little hearts the second I gave them to him. He munches and plays with them almost every single day now. I’m very satisfied!” —Grace


Get them from Chewy for $5.47.


A minimalist litter box with a curved entrance that’s sure to stop tracking in its, well, tracks. It also has a nonstick surface to make cleaning a breeze!


Promising review: “Honestly this is the best litter box ever! Admittedly, I cringed as I spent this much money on a poop box but dang, this thing is worth every penny! What initially caught my eye was the ‘no dog access’ feature. I have it in the corner of my kitchen hanging out freely with no doggie access AND I was shocked that their grated steps actually DO keep the litter inside the box! It’s also super easy to clean and ACTUALLY does keep the smell inside – guests don’t even know it’s a litter box until they ask why I have an igloo in my kitchen! It’s amazing! Spend the money! It’s worth it!” —Jaclyn


Get it from Amazon for $149.


Or a self-cleaning litter box, which is gonna prove that the most efficient way to clean out the litter is, funny enough, by not cleaning it yourself at all.


If you’re ready to stop scooping, just be sure to get a crystal litter that works with the machine!


Promising Review: “This works so well I didn’t even think my cats were using the box, I thought they were just going in and out. I had to witness them using it to believe it. No smell at all!” —Gloria Silvers

Get it from Amazon for $169.95 (available in two styles colors).


A pet hair broom that extends up to 60 inches, so you can actually reach all the nooks and crannies where your cat puts her fanny…and get all the hair she loves leaving behind.


Promising review: “I bought this broom based on the tons of great reviews and I am not disappointed. I love this broom! It is lightweight but sturdy. I have used it on tile floors and carpet and it does a great job of getting the pet hair, lint, and dirt. I like this so much better than our traditional push broom. It is very easy to clean after use just using my hand, unlike our old broom. It also has a telescoping handle so that you can adjust it to whatever height you need. There is also a squeegee for doing the house windows and the car windows. I highly recommend it.” —Joyce V

Get it from Amazon for $12.98.


A collapsable Tunnel of Love for decorating your home with things your cat is actually allowed, and encouraged, to play with.



I’m personally a big fan of seasonal pet toys because once a holiday is over I’ll put them away and replace them with something new. Giving my cats a chance to rotate toys keeps them interested in them for years, rather than weeks.

Promising review: “My two year old male cat looooves this! I wasn’t sure about the longevity of it, or if would hold his interest long, but it’s been about two weeks and he still loves to zoom through it. It’s very sturdy and good quality and it comes with a small black band to re-coil and store when you want it out of the way. I’m very happy.” —Selma Ayn

Get it from Target for $12.99.


A floral water fountain with three pressure settings and a darling design sure to convince your particularly persnickety pet that their water is, in fact, fresh as a daisy.


This has a water level indicator and an LED nightlight. It includes a filter, but you can also get refills when the water starts to seem less than fresh.

Promising review: “All five of my fur babies love this little guy. They took to it immediately with no hesitation at all, even though they had never had a fountain to drink from before. The pump is whisper quiet and provides a nice flow over the little flower. The filter needed rinsed out after a week but, like I said, I have five cats…cat hair is pretty much a seasoning in my house.” —The Readhead

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

Get it from Golden Poseidon on Etsy for $76.99.



A window bed that’ll give your favorite bird watcher the perfect perch.,

Promising review: “I was a little skeptical when I first saw the product because I was very unsure if it would be sturdy enough to actually hold onto the window when/if my cat lounged in it. But my cat absolutely loves this window seat. The best part is that it is completely sturdy and all worries of it not holding on the window have been replaced with compete happiness with the product. I would recommend this to anyone and their furry babies, as I have been pleasantly surprised with the product myself!” —Jess

A waterless cat bath to use on your beloved feline, who would love nothing more than to scratch your eyes out if you dared try to put them in an actual bath. This leave-in foam keeps them clean and even moisturizes your kitto’s skin!,


Promising review: “My cat, despite getting bathed frequently, still manages to smell like a combination of mouth, belly button lint, and floor. I bathed her with this tonight and she smells like a spring baby. I can’t stop huffing her soft head. I didn’t think it was possible to love her any more, but I’m a changed man. This stuff rocks.” —J. Ham

Get it from Amazon for $7.49.


A fruit tart cat bed with removable fruits and a cushioned crust that’ll help convince your stoic sweetheart to start showing that they love you ~berry~ much.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed


Not only does my cat sleep in this every day, she also loves playing fetch with the lightweight fruit. I often find her rolling the blueberries around the apartment. I dig having a pet bed that doubles as daily entertainment.


Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in six styles).


A purring cat toy sure to ease your anxious bud by giving them the sensation of curling up next to another purring pal.,


Promising review: “Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She’s pooped on it a couple times so I’ve had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It’s held up great.” —S Leytem

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.,

Promising review: “This is creative and functional. It’s a fantastic, cool product that my cats actually use and love!!” —Linda E.

Get it from Amazon for $22.99.



An aloe vera and oatmeal dander-reducing spray for keeping your cat’s coat soft, shiny, and free of flakes. Sure, your cat thinks he’s doing a mighty fine job on his own, but his tongue can’t exactly condition dry skin or reduce redness — this will clear that up lickety-split!

Promising review: “We have an overweight cat that has trouble grooming her back. She was so full of dandruff and greasy fur that I hated petting her, which made me very sad. While looking for a shampoo for her, I came across this product and decided to try it before torturing her with a bath. After the first application there was a huge difference! After the second application, her dandruff is GONE. I’m dumbfounded. I dunno how, but it works wonders! We spray her down and then brush her. She is so soft and shiny! She finally looks healthy, and feels good to pet. I’m very thankful for this product. I don’t have to be sad about my kitty anymore!” —Amber Steele

Get it from Amazon for $6.49.



A cat grass planter that just might convince your overeager plant eater that the poisonous house plants in your living room are no longer worth chewing on and vomiting up — it might be worth monchin’ on something their tummy loves instead.,

This planter is designed to be used with wheatgrass seeds and comes with a bottom grip and grid cover to prevent it turning into a knocked-over mess (something all cat parents cringe thinking about).

Promising review: “This is exactly what I needed for my grass loving cat, Bear. He can tear out and knock off pet store grass plantings in a very short time, but this planter is made to stay put. The grate helps keep the cat from getting the dirt all over as he uproots the seedlings. I love it and Bear loves it. This is definitely a five start product.” —J Woods


Get it from Amazon for $14.99.


A dental kit that comes with toothpaste, a toothbrush, a finger brush, and the comfort of knowing your carnivore’s tiny toofs are gonna be clean and healthy!,

This is the brushing set I have for my cats! To use it, I wrap them up in a blanket and will often wait until they’re a little sleepy. They both really like the taste of it, so when I started out I just let them lick it off the brush. Now I lift their lips and scrub while snuggling them, and they handle it like champs! If you’re starting to brush your cat’s teeth, just take it slow and in steps. It makes a big difference when it becomes a part of your routine!


Promising review: “I got this set when I realized that the breed of cats I have is prone to gingivitis. Rather than wait for a problem to arise I decided to be proactive. The cats don’t love the process but their teeth and gums are looking healthier and their breath smells a bit better so a win in my book.” —June Moon

Get it from Amazon for $4.44.


A ceramic no-spill bowl with sturdy wooden legs that’ll keep your kitto from shoving their dish around and getting food everywhere.



Promising review: “I would absolutely recommend this product . It’s good quality and my cat loves using it. The height of the feeding bowls is exactly right. The wooden stand makes the bowl easier to clean! I like the color and I like the design, it’s very clean and simple but looks very comfortable. It’s also pretty sturdy. I’ve never had any problems with it collapsing. I love this adorable product.” —Yubi

Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in six colors and two styles).


A cat feeder to get your speed eater to eat more slowly while also engaging their natural hunting instincts.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed


I started a hunting system for my cats when I felt like they were getting lethargic during the winter. One of our cats was overweight because he would sit and eat the dry food left out when he was bored. With these he’ll “hunt”, eat one, and not eat again until he’s ready to go hunting. I’ve written a full review on this clever feeding system before because I refuse to stop recommending it (#1)!

Get it from Amazon for $14.64.


A no-effort eye wash made with presoaked pads that’ll clear away the gunk that always seems to creep onto their faces. Can you believe a critter that literally bathes itself all day can get so dirty? Because ~eye~ sure can’t.


Promising review: “Oscar gets really bad infections around his right eye; it causes his whole area to get red and crusted up. We tried this and it worked great! Even after the first use we could see a big difference. I don’t use it as directed, maybe once a day but it still works great. Will absolutely buy again. P.S. forgive the before pic (left); he was helping me size baby hats I was making. No cats were tortured; he just acts like he was.” —April Mcleod

A pet stroller so you can take your indoor cat out on a walk and let them enjoy the fresh air, while those around you can enjoy how cute your fur baby looks while rolling around.



Promising review: “I got this because I was feeling like my cat was acting bored and depressed. She enjoyed looking around while I was walking her and it was something new from her norm. I felt crazy as heck walking her but she enjoyed it. It is a nice stroller for its price. I would recommend it.” —Andypie

Get it from Amazon for $42.98+ (available in three colors)., Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

Promising reviews: “I used this harness to train an eight week old kitten. I was training the kitten for nursing home visits so he could provided therapy to the people who lived there. The harness fit very well and was easily adjustable. The kitten did not even pay attention to it after it was put on.” —Zachariah Atteberry

Promising review:This harness is very secure, yet still allows my cat to have a full range of motion. She hated the process of putting it on and adjusting it at first, but now she comes running whenever I pick it up.” —Krystal

Promising review: “With the handle up, odors are sealed in. The inner basket is easy to remove and carry to the trash. I love that I can use any bags I want to in it, there are no expensive cartridges to buy and I don’t need to jury rig other bags. It even has a carry handle – none of the competition has a carry handle. This thing is perfect for my multi-cat household.” —MonaLS

A pet camera with two-way audio, night vision, and a laser that’s gonna make it easy to check in on your cat’s house-sitting skills.



Promising review: “My wife always used to ask me to take pictures/videos of our cat when she wasn’t at home, so this was a perfect fit for us. I love that we both have the app and can each look at and play with our cat when at work or traveling. I also love the ‘motion detection’ which basically records a video when there’s any movement at home and sends you a notification, so I get tons of fun videos that I share with my family (and I also feel a bit safer). Video quality is good. The laser takes a bit of getting used to but the cat loves it. The design is great, it fits well with our interior and is pleasant to touch and unpack. I haven’t tried any similar products to compare but don’t think I need to anymore – we’re loving this and sticking with it.” —Markiyan

Get it from Amazon for $179.
