In August this year, during one of my walks in our nearest mountain, sitting and crying on a parking lot I found a tiny kitten. It’s an image I will never forget: there was this big red jeep just starting the engine and right next to it was this tiny creature, big as one hand. So I went down and took it.
The poor little thing had some eye infection so its eyes were almost closed, could not even see. I had a blanket in my car so when I wrapped it in, it immediately fell asleep. So exhausted it was.
And now here it is with me, jumping all over my apartment. It seems that I am keeping this one, although it is not the prettiest cat in the world. Or is there such a thing as an ugly cat? Not really :). It follows me in my apartment like a dog – very strange cat and even though it is just a few months old it’s a very smart cat, nothing like the ones I took before.
Wherever I go it just follows: when I shower it just sits in front of the bathroom waiting for me. If it is not playing then it just loves sitting in my lap and won’t take No for an answer.
Sits on my lap as I am writing this. It’s really my special cat… And naturally, as Christmas is approaching I am starting to think what to get my cat for Christmas? So I went searching online and here are some great gifts I found and I think they are great gift ideas for any cat owner.
Window Mounted Cat Bed
We all know what a cat TV is: window watching – preferably sitting on a high place. That is truly heaven for a cat. Especially for cats that are kept only indoors, like cats living in city buildings. And it is a good thing that people have noticed this and created this window perch for cats.
It has strong suction cups that will hold even the heaviest cat. The bottom is made of strong material that is used for outdoor furniture. You can add small soft blankets for even greater comfort. That is exactly what I would do if I had this window cat bed.
Another thing I really like about this product is that while you get an extra home element it can be easily taken off and it will leave no mark on your windows. Like a removable home item – and those are my favorite ones. You put it on, let the cat enjoy it and when you decide to just move it somewhere else – easy thing to do! Sounds great to me.
Just a small warning for this one: the suction cups need to be really clean just like the window glass when installing it for maximum stability. Other than that it’s a highly popular product for cats, cats love it and people are very satisfied with their purchase. I think this is something you really need to consider getting your cat.
White Cat Play Tree With Scratching Post
The first thing I do when I have a cat is find a scratching post for it. It’s a must-have thing. I don’t want my furniture getting destroyed. I have a beautiful white couch and I fear for it very much 🙂
Now there is a ridiculously big number of cat scratching posts out there and you can easily get lost and forget to make a decision when looking through them. I have chosen this one because of a few reasons: the price is very attractive, it has a huge number of excellent reviews and I just love the way that it looks. I think it will match literally any apartment. Highly decorative for a home.
The greatest hit about this product is the extremely soft and fluffy cat hammock on the top. Cat owners claim all cats simply loved it and I saw a picture of even two cute kittens curled up in it. It will be a great place for a cat to sleep or just sit there. I simply can’t see how a cat will dislike it. It’s mission impossible.
So besides getting your cat one extremely comfortable sleeping hammock, you will also get the much-needed scratching post and that playing fluffy ball – nice additional feature that even the laziest cat will lay with. I know this because in my parent’s home we have a very strange cat that doesn’t play much but occasionally does swing the ball a few times. And if she does it then you can be sure that a more temperamental cat will definitely play with such a hanging ball.
Before I got my version of this product I improvised with a Christmas ball and a lace – and it worked. But the scratching post is irreplaceable still. So this is a great gift for a cat: your cat will love it and it won’t get your budget broken.

Squirrel Catnip Toy – Little Heaven For Cats
Cats are like children – they just love toys. They even get bored with their toys after they’ve played them to death.
If you have a cat that you keep only in the apartment, like me, then you need to buy it toys. And new toys every few months. I have almost forgotten what it’s like to have a cat. And the one thing that still surprises me is exactly that – how much cats, and especially little cats love toys.
I don’t have many toys at home, just a few, among them a little fluffy cat that sits on my bed. Well, my cat just adores it. It hugs it, it bites it and sometimes falls asleep hugging it. I need to get a picture of that…
So a playing toy is definitely a hit for cats. And if the toy has a pocket for putting catnip like this one here – it will be irresistible to your cat. I really think every cat deserves a catnip for Christmas. So this catnip cat toy has it all and there is no way your cat won’t enjoy it very much. The price is unbeatable too!
Self Warming Cat Bed
This looks so adorable that I actually wish I could crawl inside. And it’s a great cat bed for winter. So that qualifies it as a great Christmas gift.
The most special thing about this bed is the white material inside it. Once the cat curls in it will reflect it’s own body heat so the cat will get double warmth. And we all know how cats are crazy about feeling warm. And I mean really crazy – I have seen images of cats sleeping on a radiator.
The material of this cat bed is the same one the space blankets are using – well that is something that impresses me. For example, my cat loves to jump on my lap while I am trying to write on my laptop. It loves my warmth but unfortunately when I see it so relaxed and sleepy I get sleepy too!
Having a nice, warm bed for it in winter will help the cat get a good spot to sleep in and allow you to do some work at home. This cat bed looks warm if you just look at it. It is especially good for very young and old cats but essentially all cats will love this bed. The bed itself and its price make a perfect combination. And if you check the customer’s pictures that they sent in their reviews you will also fall in love with this product.
One of the best gifts for your cat for Christmas – and cold times.
