20 Best Cat Gifts For The Cat Lover In Your Life 2020

There's cat people and dog people. This article is dedicated to the former: the feline fanatics of the group. The crazy cat people. (But let's be honest, not all cat people are crazy — in fact they're pretty cool!) To honor those people, we've rounded up 15 of the best cat gifts for the cat lovers in your life. And you can rest assured that these gifts are fully vetted because yours truly is a bonafide cat mom who may or may not border on slightly cat-obsessed. Buy one item or heck, buy everything: the queen or king furball in your life deserves it.

1. Cat Locket

When opened, this locket reveals a special picture ... of your kitty! For those of us in the group (raises hand) who hate to be away from their little cheetah for even a weekend, this is a PURR-fect (promise we'll only make that pun once) gift idea to keep kitty with you at all times, right near your heart.

2. Lucky Cat Hoodie

The lucky cat or Maneki-neko is a Japanese figurine often believed to bring luck to its owner. And since carrying around a physical token is kind of well, heavy, these lucky cat tassles are the next best thing — you'll have luck everytime you wear it!

3. Cat Bungalow

The adorable cat bungalow provides kitty with a soft enclosed bed and some privacy. The separate foam cushion is perfect for curling up on, while the walls shield from household commotion — perfect for studios and small apartments! This triangle-shaped hut will have your (human) guests smiling and your kitty smirking (as long as he or she is out of reach, that is.)

5. Kitten Fur Fragrance

You can now smell like kitten fur. WE REPEAT: You can now smell like kitten fur. AND IT SMELLS DIVINE. (I can't be the only one who buries their head into their cat, can I?)

11. Kitty Litter Trap

Another practical gift that every cat lover never knew they needed (but will welcome GLADLY) is a cat litter matt: it's guaranteed to catch litter granules tracked out of your cat’s litter box with its heavy-duty top mesh layer.

If your cat wasn’t able to make it to the litter box, the urine-repellent plastic film on the mat makes it easy to clean up accidents.

(Litterbox, $30)

12. Poems By Cats

With titles like "Who Is That on Your Lap?," "This Is My Chair," "Kneel Before Me," "Nudge," and "Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs," the poems collected in this book perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche.
