A list of products recommended by me and links where to buy them!
I love this for lazy days:
Here's a stainless steel easy to clean cat fountain so your cats can stay hydrated on their own schedule! There's few parts and the filters are replaceable, so it's very easy to maintain long term.
This auto feeder lets you both schedule daily feedings AND check a video feed with audio of your pets. I use it to check up on them and give them bonus feedings when I travel. It reduces MY nervousness.
My new favorite brand is Northwest Naturals! They have all kinds of freezedried foods that are ultra tasty and great for even picky eaters! My cats love all of the poultry and the whitefish!
Kids, especially, love feeding these to Jiji who slurps them up.
This is one of Jiji's favorite toys and lots of cat people swear by it! A very simple and fun toy that keeps them entertained while you're away! (or home)
Petstages Cat Tracks Cat Toy - Fun Levels of Interactive Play - Circle Track with Moving Balls Satisfies Kitty’s Hunting, Chasing & Exercising Needshttps://www.amazon.com/Petstages-Tower-Tracks-Track-Interactive/dp/B00DT2WL26/
There's always the classics. These are one of the best catnip toys you can find! The banana and cigar are two personal favorites, and the kitties go wild for them!
SnugglyCat The Ripple Rug - Made in USA - Cat Activity Play Mat - Thermally Insulated Base - Fun Interactive Play - Training - Scratching - Bed Mathttps://www.amazon.com/SnugglyCat-Ripple-Rug-Interactive-Scratching/dp/B016H3T8EC/
This toy will also drive your cat nuts in all the right ways as they try and roll the ball around!
Nandog beds are my absolute FAVORITE pet bed. They're super soft, very warm, and well designed. The prices on their site are very high, but they FREQUENTLY show up at TJ Max for $20, and for $20 at their World's Family Pet Expo booth.
Take care of Kitty's fur with a nice comb. Pandora will seek me out for brush time and some special 1 on 1 kitty attention.
Chirpy Pets Dog & Cat Brush for Shedding, Best Long & Short Hair Pet Grooming Tool, Reduces Dogs and Cats Shedding Hair by More Than 90%, The Deshedding Toolhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0178VW3PS/
Even fussy kitties can be trained to accept nail trims! Take your time to re-assure them, give them some of the treats I recommended above, and do NOT let them run away if they give you sass. Pet them for a few seconds, say "good job" and let them go.
Pet Republique Cat Nail Clippers – Professional Claw Trimmer for Cat, Kitten, Hamster, Small Breed Animals - Mini Clipper Designhttps://www.amazon.com/Pet-Republique-Professional-Nail-Clippers/dp/B01GBSSKVU/
Your vet will assist you in putting them on the cat if you can't do so yourself.
Cats on the counter or surfaces they should avoid? This is a safe training device to work through those "NO" rules with kitty.
And here's the welcome rug we use, because we show off how crazy we are about cats before you even get inside
If you need to travel with your cat (or dog) this is the NUMBER 1 BRAND I WILL RECOMMEND!
I've gotten to try out almost ALL of their pet products and I seriously geek out over how good they are. Worth every penny.
Our cats like sleeping in it, too. (and the bigger sizes)
The SturdiBag™ Large was designed for in-cabin, airline travel and is the largest size allowed by most airlines. SturdiBag™ for dogs or cats is the perfect carrier for traveling pets! By car, airline...https://sturdiproducts.com/collections/featured-items/products/sturdibag-large
Ever heard me talk about "kitty jail"? This is Kitty Jail. I got a special pad they make and a hammock for it and lock up the kitties when they're breaking the rules. They actually really like it, and take a nap to calm down.
Pop-Up Kennel - Medium, Euro Back (aka Show Shelter) is a necessity for anyone traveling with their pet. No assembly is required. Simply remove from the case, give it a shake and it pops open! Mesh...https://sturdiproducts.com/collections/pop-up-kennels/products/pop-up-kennel-medium-euro-back
If you travel with your pet, this waterproof fold up litter box will save your life. It fits in front of a seat, or inside a cat carrier, and you can hose it off, and fold it up very small for storage.
Their harnesses are very high quality, and I've switched all my cats over to these. They button up rather than Velcro. It's a bit harder to put on, but it stays on and doesn't scratch the kitty!
Just Snap It! The SturdiPet™ Walking Vest Small with 5 foot leash for cats and dogs is easy, secure, snag-free and “snap” adjustable. Available in these fun Limited Edition Prints. This vest is made...https://sturdiproducts.com/products/small-walking-vest-in-limited-edition-print?variant=8034450565
I was given one of these as a gift, and it's super cool! I've used it when I take my cats out to visit new places and a small litter box and blanket can fit inside! I'm going to use it at my new house for outdoor adventures.
Does your kitty need a cone of shame? Most cones are too large and bulky for cats to really walk around, or get comfy. I use these soft cones when I'm home (to monitor the cat just in case) and they are WAY more comfy.
I'll be honest that I just use a giant WalMart tote bin as a litter box so I don't have to clean it daily, but I CONSTANTLY hear the praises sung for this litter box. It's automated, helps clean the litter for you, and apparently cats think it's cool.
I love World's Best Cat Litter. It isn't dusty, and ISN'T clay, so it's better for the environment. It requires a full change once a month, or it gets farmy, but smells pleasant!
It's on the pricey end, but their ingredients are second to none.
This is an amazing website to check out your favorite brand of cat food and see if it has a good score for nutrition and ingredients. If you find out you're on a low quality food you can slowly wean kitty into a better food type.
I use this as a toy and training device. I get out the cat's FAVORITE treats, and they have to touch the wand and hear the click to get it.
I use it as a game for the energetic cats, but for the nervous one I use it to reward/condition her for new things.
Freeze dried chicken hearts are my favorite training treat. I yell "Chicken heart!" and the cats will SCREAM and run over! Nothing beats a chicken heart.
I use this brand, but there are cheaper and smaller packages from other sellers.
This was recommended as a brand for cats who aren't as typically catnip motivated, so linking it here! I'd like to try it out, myself!
Another recommendation! This looks very similar to some of my cat's FAVORITE TOYS EVER! The seller I buy from only sells at cat shows, so this is a great alternative!
When Gandalf gets the bug, she refuses to let go. She has hunted. She will destroy.
This is recommended to me often for cat wall mounted furniture! I want to get some myself in the future!
