    1. A Catit flower water fountain for your cat who seems to only want to drink out of a running faucet. Turns out, some cats prefer running water as opposed to still water in a bowl; so yes, they are sometimes that picky.

    Promising review: "I adopted a 6-month-old kitten from a rescue group and I noticed that he did not want to drink much water from his bowl. I discovered that he loved to drink lots of water if I turned on the faucet. This fountain was the perfect answer. He absolutely loves it and is drinking lots of water now. My other cat also loves it." –Lostie4ever

    Price: $20

    2. A self-groomer cat toy, because there are times when you are not available to give your cat those cute little cheek scratches. This grooming toy will hold them over in the meantime.

    Promising review: "I got this for my three-legged cat because he can't scratch his left side. He'll be trying to scratch and all you see is his little nub going crazy. I found these and he immediately LOVED it! The expression on his face when he first tried it was priceless." –Pippa Runs

    Price: $3.99

    3. A Temptations hairball control cat treat so that your long-haired feline friend (and you) can finally have some sweet relief from what seems like a lifetime of hairballs.

    Promising review: "I have a 15 lb. Maine Coon with tons of fur. I give her the recommended 10 treats (which she looks forward to–it's the only time I can get her to come when called), skipping some days since it says to go to every other day after two weeks. When I rescued her, coughing up hairballs every week or so. When I keep up with the treats and remember to brush her, the hairballs virtually stop." –DesertDea

    Price: $22.20 (Subscribe & Save for $21.09/month)

    4. An airtight pet food storage container that'll completely eliminate all bags of dry food from your life. Plus, the airtight container will keep your cat's food fresh until the last kibble, meaning your cat will thank you for the fresh bites of food each and every mealtime.

    Promising review: "Just arrived and I already got it set up! I'm so happy it's insane. We hated picking up litter and food bags heavier than us so this is definitely a game-changer! It's an awesome find and organizing idea. My husband was so happy to see that it came with a scoop!" –P Bocanegra

    Price: $18.74

    5. A Feline Greenies Pill Pocket treat, because giving medication to a cat is hard work. Simply stuff your cat's pill into this treat's pocket, close the treat with your finger tips, and watch them enjoy their "snack" 'til the last bite.

    Promising review: "These Pill Pockets make life so much easier! Saves a twice-a-day fight! It only takes a second to place the pills inside and pinch shut. My cat loves the treat!" –Melissa

    Price: $6.49 (Subscribe & Save for $6.17/month)

    6. A self-cleaning brush so that you can minimize the amount of hairballs your cat has to deal with, while *also* minimizing the amount of cleanup you have to do after grooming your cat., a person holding a purple and grey brush with hairs in between the teeth

    Promising review: "My cat has short hair, but a thick undercoat. I have tried other types of brushes and they don't get much hair at all. Now, I KNOW this cat sheds cause when I go to pet him, it's like a puff of hair in the air. I was on Amazon and found this one and thought I'd give it a try and I am SO glad I did! I brush him two to three times a day and I always find a good amount on the brush. I didn't think I would care that it was self-cleaning, but it is seriously the best feature of this brush. So easy! He loves how it feels and I love how it works." –Addo90

    Price: $15.99

    7. A wall-mounted scratch pad that'll save your couch from those stretchy scratches while giving your cat a great surface for some claw-grooming.

    Promising review: "I just hung the scratcher up. It came with very clear instructions and the product itself seems to be great. It's much more attractive to look at than our old scratcher." –Chris

    Price: $38.99

    8. A wall-mounted cat stairway, because cats are mischievous, and will climb onto any high surface, anyway. May as well give them a little boost with this device, which also acts as a scratch pad.

    Promising review: "Sturdy, well-built! Easy for the cats to climb! I combined two to extend the length of the stairs." –Jflew

    Price: $28.79

    9. A cat-scratch deterrent spray to protect your new rug or ottoman from cat scratches. This spray smells pleasant to humans yet foul to felines, meaning that your cat will not go near any surface you choose to spray.

    a clear bottle with a black and white label that reads 'stop the scratch'

    Promising review: "I 100% recommend to anyone with cat scratching problem on furniture! My cat ruined my first couch so badly that when we move we bought a new nice one. I really didn’t want to buy a new one because of her but this spray has deterred her so well in a good manner. She is only deterred from the spots we spray which are the corners and base. She doesn’t scratch there but still comes on top with me to cuddle. Perfect match made in heaven! Please try!! This is your solution." –Jenna

    Price: $18.95 (Subscribe & Save for $17.06/month)

    10. A litter mat so that both your cat's paws and your hardwood floors are free from litter. This mat is a great choice because cleanup is simple — spray it down with a hose and you are good to go.

    Promising review: "This mat traps the litter better than any other mat I’ve tried, and my cat is 17 so I’ve tried a lot! I didn’t want a huge mat because the litter is kept in a closet, so I just tucked quite a lot of the mat underneath the litter box. I did not have any issues with the creases, but that’s probably because I keep so much of the mat under the heavy litter box. Definitely works and has cut down on stepping on a wayward litter by at least 90%!" –Pamela

    Price: $18.99 (Subscribe & Save for $18.04/month)

    11. A litter box liner, because cats prefer fresh litter when they go about their business. A litter box liner is ideal for this because it gets rid of old litter in one go that's mess- and hassle-free.

    Promising review: "This is a lifesaver! I wish I’d discovered these sooner; it would have saved me several unpleasant litter box cleaning. It’s very sturdy and thick enough to withstand my cat’s feverish scratching and burying." –Gabriela

    Price: $2.82 (Subscribe & Save for $2.68/month)

    12. An Angry Orange pet odor-eliminating spray to hide any mistakes that your cat might have made.

    Promising review: "Wow! My dog has a problem with marking. It is terrible for the overall stench in our house. He peed on our pillow, so I washed the cover and scrubbed it with spot shot. Still smelled like pee. Sprayed this on and dabbed and its like a new pillow!" –Clairebap

    Price: $20.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $19.92/month)

    13. An pet feeder that automatically fills the bowl when your cat's food is running low. This is great for busy feline parents, or for hungry cats who always seem to meow next to the cupboard that holds their food.

    Promising review: "I bought this mostly because I plan to go on a vacation and was worried my two Bengals would go hungry. I actually love feeding them when I am at home. It is perfect because you can program meals for when you anticipate to be away (for example a small lunch while you’re at work) but still able to feed when you’re around. It is also nice that you can individually set the times at which you think a meal should be due. It also holds quite a large amount of food, enough to last you at least for a good week for two cats. I think it also helps with weight control for cats that cannot handle free feeding." –student

    Price: $79.95

    14. A super cozy cat bed for your kitty who loves to hide in all the tight corners of your home. They'll sleep well in this plush cave, and you'll sleep well knowing that this bed's insulation is keeping them warm throughout the night.

    Promsing 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." –Jackie C.

    Price: $23.99 (available in grey)

    15. A pair of nail clippers that'll help you keep your cat's claws at a length that won't do too much damage to any of the drapes hanging in your home.

    A person holding a pair of green nail clippers for cats

    Promising review: "I've always been a bit leery of pet nail clippers like these, because I feel like I can't see exactly where the cutting edge is relative to the quick. I REALLY like these, though. They're angled, and it's much easier to see; and they're SHARP, so they don't crush the claws." —Ashley McConnell

    Price: $12.99

    16. A squeezable treat, because there is nothing cuter than watching your hangry cat eat a snack from a squeeze tube. Trust me, I would know — I give my two cats this treat every single afternoon.

    This comes with 12 tubes.

    Promising review: "My cat loves this product. I give it to her as a special treat and also to coat her capsule medication which she willingly will take with the Churu on it. I really think she might eat cardboard if it was coated in Ibana Churu. She loves this stuff." –Kitty

    Price: $11.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $11.37/month)

    17. A bag of World's Best Cat Litter that's kind on their paws, and kind to the planet, too. This litter is septic-safe and clumps well, meaning that cleanup is a breeze.

    A litter box filled with yellow corn-based litter

    Promising review: "I live in a small apartment and absolutely will not tolerate "cat smell". Deodorants and perfumed cat litters smell worse because it just compounds the smell. Flushable litter and keeping a tidy box is the answer. Dumping litter from the box to the trash smells up the place. This stuff works for my household. Doesn't track too much like other litters and doesn't reek of perfumes." –H F

    Price: $26.95 (or Subscribe & Save for $25.60/month)

    18. A cat tree tower with a hammock that will quickly become the main station of many cat naps. I have this cat tree, and the scratch posts on this bad boy continue to save other parts of my home from claw damage.

    Promising review: "It took me about three minutes to put together and my two cats were immediately all over it!! The hammock is super soft, the scratching posts are well-made, and they are loving the toy attachment! It’s a good height and the hammock can accommodate them both as they nap together." –Sara

    Price: $27.51 (available in two colors)

    19. A cat harness and leash so that your indoor cat can enjoy the great outdoors without straying too far.

    Promising review: "This works great for both my cats, one who's tall and thin and the other is thicker. Neither can back out of it and have started to walk normally in it. It's very sturdy and they haven't been able to do much damage to it." –V Stiles

    Price: $14.98 (available in sizes XS-S and in eight colors)

    20. A cat roller toy that'll keep your kitty busy while you continue to crush your Zoom meetings.

    Promising review: "I recently adopted two kittens and needed to get some toys for them to play with. They LOVE this toy! They like to sit on opposite sides of the circle and push the balls back and forth to each other. The middle ball has a jingle ball in it, so that is their favorite of course because it makes more noise." –SoxBeerFish

    Price: $8.99 (available in three colors)

    21. A cable-knit turtleneck sweater, because cats get cold, too! Consider this sweater if you have a Sphynx cat or a cat who needs to be shaved often.

    Promising review: "Our cat loves his warm and cozy new sweater. At first, we weren't sure he was going to let us put it on him let alone wear it but once on he enjoyed it. It helps keep him toasty and comfortable to visit the backyard when it's chilly. We got the extra-large since he's a big boy, about 20 pounds and it fit very well." –Chris Wren

    Price: $12.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in pink)

    22. A no-rinse waterless dry shampoo to save you from the grueling process of giving your cat a real bath. This is great for the cool cat in your life who often finds themselves in one too many muddy adventures while outside., A black cat during a cleaning with the dry shampoo

    Promising review: "This product is great at helping me keep my long haired persian's hair smelling and feeling clean without actually having to bathe her multiple times a month. She is a rather messy eater and gets her chest dirty and this waterless foam cleans the mess right up. I have also noticed less shedding since using this product and her hair is so soft and fluffy. The smell is pleasant too." –Crystal

    Price: $6.35 (or Subscribe & Save for $6.03/month)

    23. A Frontline Plus flea and tick treatment, because fleas and ticks are the bane of any indoor/outdoor cat owner's existence. This topical treatment comes packaged in individual applicators, speeding up the process of administering medication to a cat who might not want to sit still.

    Promising review: "A stray adopted us and came covered in fleas and ticks.. and the rashes that came from being infested. A few months later, he still has some rash issues, but he's SO much better than he was. We're glad he has this product to help keep him healthy." –Mordred

    Price: $63.99 (Subscribe & Save for $60.79/month)

    24. A rainbow charmer toy so that you can give your cat a string to play with that isn't your shoelace.

    Promising review: "The Cat Charmer is one of the top recommendations I make as a certified cat behaviorist and veterinary technician. I find that many cats who are not attracted to most routine toys are easily attracted to this toy." –Siamic

    Price: $6.49

    25. A daily probiotic for the cat in your life who seems to deal with upset stomachs quite often. This probiotic comes in a powder, making it simple to hide into your cat's wet food.

    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." –Emmaline

    Price: $32.95 (Subscribe & Save for $29.66/month)

    26. A water additive, because dental hygiene is as important for cats as it is for us humans. Simply add a capful to your cat's water bowl and relish in the fact that you are promoting their gum health while giving them fresh breath.

    a white and green bottle that reads 'water additive' in front of two pusheen bowls, full of water and kibble

    Promising review: "My cat is 18 and has some bad breath at times. I bought this thinking that it would help, and I was pleasantly surprised that it DOES work. My cat no longer has bad breath. I am a happy camper and so is she." –Deb Kaye

    Price: $15.45

    27. A pack of foam toy balls that'll please both you and your cat, and here's why: while your cat will have a *ball* playing with these toys, you won't hear a peep from them, as there are no bells, whistles, or other noise contraptions included in this toy.

    This pack includes 45 foam balls.

    Promising review: "We got a rainbow ball from a toy bundle and it's been Prince's favorite toy ever since. He'll pick it up with his mouth and go EVERYWHERE with it (sweeping under the couch is fun, LOL). He's also been teething and they're super soft which I'm sure is why he prefers them." –Ximena

    Price: $13.80

    28. An automatic laser pointer for when you are too tied up with your chores to play with your cat. This laser pointer charges with a USB cord, and has two speeds, meaning that the fun will never be boring and will last for hours.

    Promising review: "This is our cats' new favorite toy. Our little Siamese girl almost never came downstairs to spend time with me before. Now, she comes down with me every day, jumps up in my lap, nudges the unit as if to say, 'Please make it go.' Both cats mostly watch it intently, with short bursts of chasing and trying to catch the dot." –Dianne

    Price: $13.99
