Everybody loves a good present at Christmas and cats are no exception. Having braved the potentially terrifying fireworks from Bonfire Night, perhaps it is time to start thinking about some festive treats for your feline friend.
Here’s what is on our cat’s Christmas wish list:
Good Girl Cat Advent Calendar 2016
Advent calendars are a great way of counting down to Christmas. Getting a cat calendar is a great alternative if you are on a pre-Christmas diet in preparation for the culinary delights of the Christmas events. Even if you are still indulging in your own chocolate calendar, why not share this experience with your furry friend.
Whiskas Christmas Cat Stocking
Stockings on the fireplace are a classic image of traditional Christmas time. When you line up the family stockings this year, make sure you don’t forget one for you cat. You can get a range of material stockings and fill them up yourself with your little friend’s favourite treats. Alternatively, Whiskas do a ready made stocking filled with delicious Whiskas temptations treats to satisfy even the pickiest of cats. An extra bonus is that is comes with a treat toy so your cat has great fun whilst exercising too.
Nowadays, a great deal of time is put into preparing the dinner table ready for Christmas Day. A nice way to include your pet in this is to get them their very own bowl for the important day. There is a good range of bowls in shops but our favourite is the delightful bowl above; the paw detail on the holly is a great touch!
We have put a few in the widget below, but if we’re honest, there are much better ones to be had in bargain shops such as Home Bargains!
Christmas Dinner for Cats
Having chosen your cat’s new bowl, it is a good time to start thinking about what to put in it. If your cat is anything like ours, they like a little bit of variety so Christmas Day is a great time to show your kitty how much you care with a Christmas meal to tickle their taste buds.
There are some great meat options around this year and excellent themed treats such as Tesco’s turkey and cranberry chew sticks. Lily’s Kitchen do an excellent organic turkey feast and Tesco offering is a Christmas dinner with turkey and sage. Your cat will be able to be part of the full Christmas experience alongside you and your family.
Christmas Cat Toys
Playing is an important part of the routine of cats and are increasingly important for indoor cats to keep them in the best of health.
Cats love a good teaser toy and there are some great ones available this Christmas. You could purchase a generic one to keep your pet playing happily throughout the whole year. If you are looking for a festive edition, Pets at Home has a wonderful holly shaped teaser toy which is attached to a rather festive candy cane handle, perfect for chasing and pouncing games this Christmas.
Cat Scratching Laptop
A playful edition of the traditional scratching toy, this is one of our top present for Christmas 2016. For any owners who struggle to keep their own computers away from their furry friend’s paws, this is the perfect gift. Other versions include a DJ decking station for the music lover owners out there.
Skineeez Mouse Cat Toy
Filled with catnip, this toy will bring out your cats natural hunting instinct and will help them enjoy hours of entertainment. Reasonably priced, this toy is a great addition to a cat stocking and will have your cat purring throughout the festive season.
Buy from Amazon below, or alternatively, if you live near a large pet store such as Pets At Home, you can pick them up there slightly cheaper at £2.50.
We hope you enjoy Christmas 2016 with your cat.
