    Promising review: "We bought our storage containers a couple of months ago and love it. We’re in a woodsy area so sometimes bugs/mice just happen and I am not okay sharing with them.

    Price: $23.74

    5. A Fresh Step odor shield clumping litter that is infused with The Power of Febreze, ensuring that the scent of whatever your kitty does in the litter box stays in the litter box.

    Price: $10.19 (available in three scents)

    6. A hooded litter box, because your cat likes their privacy when using the restroom. This hooded litter box keeps your floors free of litter if your cat is the type who digs aggressively. Plus, it contains a carbon filter at the top of the litter box that locks in foul odors. My two cats love that they can hide in here while doing their ~duties~, and I love that this litter box is easy to clean.

    Promising review: "Great litter box. We have two female cats, both around 6-7 lbs, and they have a ton of room inside. I've never smelled any urine when I'm near the box but it does get cleaned at least every other day. The door and ledge help cut back on litter that gets tracked outside of the box." –David

    Price: $30.17 (available in four colors)

    Price: $24.99

    11. A feather cat wand toy if your indoor cat would rather spend their time by the window staring at the birds outside. This toy mimics a bird in flight, which stimulates your feline's hunting instincts during playtime.

    Promising review: "I started with one of these bowls. Now there is one for each of our five cats. The cats love them and they look much more comfortable eating out of them. I have also noticed less regurgitating/vomiting since I began using these bowls. Would highly recommend these bowls." –S Altman.

    Price: $12.27 (available in three colors)

    13. A pair of cat claw trimmers, because cat scratches, no matter how much your cat loves you, are a thing. Use this tool to gently snip the sharp ends of your cat's claws without ever going too deep into their nailbed.

The last time that they were clipped was during a visit to the vet and they had a hard time with him.. It was so easy to clip them and Rocket barely noticed that he was getting a cut. The quality of the product is great and price was fantastic." –Rosemary Sol

    Price: $6.99

    Promising review: "Cleo the cat loves this litter box!!! Why is this the best litter box ever? Our medium-sized dogs can't get to it! Less mess on the floor!! Nothing worse than stepping in kitty litter all the time!! This really cuts down on that issue. Kitty litter stays in the box and not on the floor. Size is great too!! Big enough for Cleo but not huge and oversized." –Aleece King

    Price: $21.95

    17. A Greenies oven-roasted chicken flavor treat, because who doesn't love a cat with a fresh breath?

These treats, when taken daily, help improve your cat's tooth and gum health.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy anything like this because my cat only likes the junk food. And, since this helps with their teeth, I thought there was no way my cat would go for it. He loves it! I am so surprised. And, it really does help with their teeth. Recommended by my cat, Charlie!" –Angie Marakas

    Price: $6.92 (available in four sizes)

    18. A dry food dispenser if you have trained your cat to self-feed. This food dispenser releases a finite amount of food at a time, keeping the dry food on the inside of the well from going stale.

    Promising review: "For the same price as regular treats, but with added immune health benefits, and no wheat/corn/artificial preservatives, I will choose this every time. I also appreciate that, while many treats that claim to have nutritional benefits require 5-10 or more treats a day, these only require 1-2 treats daily, meaning one bag will last me a lot longer." –anaid

    Price: $8.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $8.54/month)

    Price: $15.99

    21. A cardboard cat scratcher that doubles as a kitty-version of Whac-a-Mole. This product stimulates your cat's brain function as they attentively chase the ball inside of this toy.

    Promising review: "Purchased two for my furr baby. He loved the big boxes they came in, the packaging paper and the actual scratcher! He jumped out of the box to enjoy his new gifts. If your cat loves scratching, this is the way to go." –Nikki

    Price: $6.22

    22. A flower water fountain, because some cats prefer drinking running water as opposed to still water from a bowl (this is why your cat might love drinking water from a running faucet!). This fountain filters and oxygenates water to ensure a fresh and clean drink for your kitty every time.

    Promising review: "Although the step is lightweight, the foam base material they use seems pretty sturdy and doesn't seem wobbly at all when my pet climbs (or more likely runs) up it to get to the bed. The lambswool cover was a huge selling point for me and looks far and away better than many of the other pet stairs I've seen on the market ...Bonus? Love that you can buy replacement covers for it as well!" –J. Borges

    Price: $45.99 (available in ten colors)

    24. A cat roller toy that'll engage your cat for what seems like hours on end. This toy comes with grips on the bottom of it, meaning that it won't slide around the house as your cat has the time of their life.

    Promising review: "My kitten could barely wait for me to put this thing together before she was playing with it. She has since been playing with it nonstop with our adult cat hitting the balls back and forth. Sturdy plastic, the balls in the slots move freely, and it even has little rubber skids on it so it doesn't move all over the play while they play with it. Great product would definitely recommend for the price compared to some of the others in pet stores." –Hannah

    Price: $8.99 (availble in three colors)

    25. A fluffy fleece blanket, because the cooler months are here to stay, and cats love warmth! Place this in your cat's bed, or wherever else they love to lounge and watch them purr their way to dreamland in no time.,

    Promising review: "I ordered these for the price and size. They are super cute and my foster cat loves them!! They fit great in the cat's travel kennel also. I got a size small..will be ordering again!!" –Cassy E

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes S-L and in ten colors)

    26. A storage bin to keep all your cat toys in. Beware: your cat might just want to sit inside the bin and snuggle with their toys all day long.

    Promising review: "I use this as a toy box for my cat. He absolutely loves it! He climbs in the box and gets a toy when he wants to play. Good size and made of a heavy felt-like fabric." –AnnaMaria

    Price: $14.99 (available in three colors)

    27. A cave cat bed, because cats love to lounge in enclosed spaces. This super plush bed gives the coziness and support your cat needs during sleep, and has a fun pom-pom attached for when your cat wakes up.

    Promising review: "My two cats are somewhat picky, one more than the other. One of my babies did love it at first sight though and is already sleeping in it. The bed itself is cozy and cute! Ready for the colder weather." –Jacky C.

    Price: $23.99 (available in sizes M-L and in two colors)

    28. A Gorilla Grip litter mat that'll trap the litter that your kitty will inevitably bring around the house with their dusty paws. I purchased this after becoming tired of cleaning up after my two cats, and I've never looked back.

    Promising review: "I have had this mat since July of 2019. It has still held up nearly a year later with my three Maine Coons. It’s pretty easy to vacuum with a hose attachment. They haven’t chewed or ripped any holes in it. It keeps excess litter contained as long as it is cleaned often enough." –Iamkittenyou

    Price: $32.99 (available in four sizes and in nine colors)

    29. A probiotic for cats because your kitty's gut flora needs to be taken care of, as well! This probiotic comes in a powder form, making it simple to mix into wet food. Your cat won't suspect a thing.

    Promising review: "After only a few days on this probiotic, Humphrey's 'presents' became noticeably firmer, more shapely, and even less smelly. And for that, I couldn't be happier with the results! I think Humphrey is happier too because he doesn't have to deal with a messy bum anymore. To add to all of this, his teeth are now whiter and his breath is smelling cleaner – I think that's thanks to having a cleaner bottom." –Emmaline
