1. A Warm Dishwasher.
Despite popular opinion, cats aren’t very hard to please. All they need is a box or a string to entertain them, or in this case, a dishwasher. Every time my washer beeps it’s finish signal I call over my Hana, wipe down the moisture, and watch her snuggle up on the warm dishwasher door. It’s the cutest little thing to watch, but here’s your disclaimer: dishwasher naps are very addicting. If you introduce your cat friend to the wonders of this magical warm door then you may find said cat at times meowing it’s head off in front of the washer when it’s not even running.
2. Bulk Boxes.
Next time you’re at a bulk store, keep your eye on the boxes they offer at checkout. These bulk store employees must be cat people because they seem to cut perfect kitty-sized openings into their boxes that offer my fur babies a brand new bed. I just add a fleece blanket inside and my cats can’t resist.
3. Cat Furniture.
Yes, that is a bed for my cat. A cat bed if you will. It was originally meant for dolls but I found a better use for it as you can see. This is Kuku surprised by how much he loves it.
4. Single Serving Cat Food.
Like I said, these things spoil both mama and kitty. Real pieces of seafood in a single-serving container means you don’t even need the spoon and bowls I have pictured here. This Tuna & Salmon 2-pack was on sale at Target when I picked it up, AND there is a Cartwheel offer running 10/18-11/15 for 20% off Simple Servings. Go try these out right meow.
5. Cat Costumes.
Ok, my cats hate me putting anything on them, however small. But mama feeds them and cleans their poo, so she gets to have her fun sometimes. How cute is Kuku in his bat wings?? One year for Christmas I asked my Secret Santa to gift me cat sweaters. The cats really love those.
6. High Beds.
Cats like to jump on stuff. I assume they climb high to establish authority over their humans, but I’m no expert. So to cater to our furry masters, we make beds in high places. The hallway closet has fleece blankets on two of it’s shelves so that the cats can sleep there on occasion, and the top shelf in the bedroom closet is also fitted with blankets. In there we had to place a small bookcase as well because the shelf was too high for jumping straight from the ground. Man, the more I share the more I realize how much these cats control me.
7. Outside Time
My vet would say NO to this, because it makes “house cats with no front claws susceptible to predators and disease”, but I normally only let them in my fenced-in backyard and I keep a close eye on them. How can I not let them out to play in the grass, breathe in the fresh air, and grumble at the birds that perch on the fence?? If I were a YouTuber it would also make for great material: like Kuku running around with a poopy piece of grass hanging out of his butt, or when neighbor cats come say hi through the fence and elicit a banshee yowl from my guard cat Hana. Cats are just the best.
Our go-to’s: strings, elastic hair ties, balls, pencils, hoodie strings, ribbons, measuring tape, floss, shoelaces, important papers, flies, grass, etc. With the floss, once you’re done with it you’ll want to leave it hanging just a little over the side of your trash can. That way in the morning you will be delighted to find it in a completely different part of your house! Cat toys are only limited by your imagination.
