Unique and Imaginative Gifts for Cats & Their Pet People

If you know a special cat and the humans they let care for them (since, as every cat owner knows, the cat is in charge), you will find this page informative, entertaining and fun in addition to finding the Purr-fect gift for any occasion.)

We've created this page to raise money for the ASPCA, Humane society, and TLC animal shelter.

We have two we adopted from the local SPCA and they are amazing companions and great fun. You can see one of our cats, Chibi, in the introduction photo.

All proceeds earned by this hub will be donated to these organizations.

Pets are a great source of joy and can even improve one's health and alleviate stress. Psychologists and medical practitioners tell us that folks who care for pets are generally healthier on measures of emotional, mental, social, and physical health -- but they didn't need to do all those scientific studies to "discover" what Pet lovers already knew.

Cat lovers are indeed a breed apart.

Let Her Know She's The Cat's Pajamas!

The phrase "The Cat's Pajamas" became a popular expression during the Roaring 20s. "Cat" a term used to describe flappers, was combined with the name of something else new to the era -- Pajamas, and was the 1920s equivalent of Cool, Groovy, Phat, Da Bomb, and similar slang expressions since then. In short, it means excellent.

It is also not a coincidence that an English tailor named Katz, shortly before that time, was renowned for making silk pajamas for the rich and royal.

...Cats Will Play

Cats need to climb, scratch, and generally just be a cat. By providing them with scratching posts, furniture to climb, play on, and rest in, they will be more active.

Exercise is healthy activity cats need to maintain strength and help keep them in shape. With the classic and whimsical designs shown here, you can also find cat furniture to suit your décor or your sense of humor, as well as those of your favorite cat person.

Nora the Piano-Playing Cat - You've Got to See it to Believe it!

Nora The Piano Cat: The Sequel - Better than the original!

Features all-new footage and more duets. Better than the original! This is not a trick taught to Nora. She began sitting at the piano at about one-year-old. She's almost four now. She plays only when the mood strikes her, which is usually several time a times a day for short periods. (Copyright 2007/2008 Yow!/Alexander, Nora The Piano Cat, LLC)

The Best Gift of All...

Perhaps the best gift of all you can give a cat-lover is one that is also a gift to yourself and your family: Adopt a cat or kitten from an animal shelter and learn why so many people are so crazy about felines. The following video offers some great advice for the individual or family looking to adopt. After the video, you'll find some books we've found were valuable resources for caring for your new pet.

Adopting a Cat or Kitten (or two)? - Some things you should know

Adopting a Cat or Kitten (or two)? - Some things you should know

We have personally chosen these books because we think they are the best out of the hundreds available. We've read them all and have two of them on our bookshelves at home for easy reference. We adopted our cats as young kittens nine years ago (brother and sister from the same litter). It was (and is) as reassuring to have information we know we can trust available whenever needed and to help us determine if we should be concerned about a new behavior or not when we should call the veterinarian or similar cat-care professional.

      Thanks for your lovely note. We have 2 cats but they are content to prowl around indoors and don't like going outside at all. Our dog, however, enjoys the porch and garden a lot.

      Love this for the gifting to cat lovers and their love of cats. Mouse would be proud. Would bet a few pad about in the old 1880 Victorian house and garden you've renovated read in your bio. So many "hidey" places there would be. Fun read.

      nice lens and toys, I love my girls, and buy a lot of toys for them but a peace of crumpled aluminum foil they also love to play with or a carton box is also a fantastic way to play, well that counts for my girls but not every cat will love that.

      My mother got me a cat tree for my cat for christmas. I love my cat and I am constantly buying her things. She even got me a poster of my cat. I even got some small plastic cat toys in my stocking. The year before last year I got a picture frame that says I love my cat. Cats are great.

      @cinstress: I would recommend the "cat scratch thing." We've got two of them now (ordered the first from above listing but lucked out and found the second at a local garage sale) and our cats really enjoy them. And Thanks for the lensroll. Appreciate it!
