Today’s guest post comes from Melianie Cho on the topic of Practical Gift Ideas for a Cat’s Birthday Party.
Birthday parties are always fun; more so, if it’s a pet’s birthday party. If you have been invited to your friend’s pet cat’s birthday party and still have been unable to decide what gifts to buy for the pet, here are a few ideas to help you out with your predicament.
1. Cat Scratcher
Cats continuously need to scratch with their claws. An ideal gift to a pet cat for their birthday would be convenient cat scratchers that can be used by the cat to lounge and scratch on. You can get them in a variety of colors.
2. Pet Fountain
Pet fountains are practical and healthy gifts for a cat. Not only do they promote your pet’s health by encouraging them to drink more, they also keep the water clean by continuously producing a free flowing stream of water that often passes through a charcoal filter to catch pet hair, bad tastes and odor.
3. ID Tags
Another clever gift for your cat would be engraved and classy ID tags. This ensures that cats are returned to the owner if lost and also makes a sassy feline fashion statement. Though we of course still recommend to microchip your cat!
4. Cat Treats
Cats love getting yummy treats. An ideal gift for a cat would be a box of cat biscuits or chicken or seafood treats. These healthy knick knacks are sure to keep cats satisfied and happy.
5. Customized Treat Jar
Another great gift for a cat can be their own personalized air tight jar to store treats and keep them crispy and fresh. You can have their names etched on the jar and have them decorated to give a more feline feel to them.
6. Thermal Cushion
In those dreary cold winter days, cats yearn to sit on a warm cozy surface. A thermal cushion is a perfect gift for cats that hate the cold. The cushion does not need electricity and has self-warming ability, whereby it reflects the heat of the cat’s body back, keeping the feline warm and comfortable. The cushions are machine washable and an ideal lounger for cats.
7. Soft Toy
If your friend leaves their cat home alone all day, you can gift the pet a soft toy to snuggle with when it’s lonely. The cat can enjoy playing with the soft toy and can gain a sense of comfort from it as well.
8. Self-Cleaning Litter Box
A self-cleaning litter box is a very practical gift to keep a cat clean and healthy. It’s a great way to control odors and minimize the cleaning effort required. Also, cat owners don’t need to get their hands dirty while cleaning the litter box.
9. Scrunchy Ball
For those cats that love to chew on everything, scrunchy balls can fulfill this desire well. They are soft, light and extremely fun to play with. Cats will have a good time with one of these.
