Purr-fect Christmas Presents for your Kitty

Even at We Love Pets we don’t know what cats make of Christmas, except that the wrapping paper, string and bows are fantastic extra playthings for them to enjoy chasing and catching. However, we are often asked by owners what they can buy their favourite feline as a ‘proper’ present so here are some ideas that we think they will appreciate receiving as much as you enjoy giving.

  1. Kitty City Caribbean Cruiser

This fun ‘play station’ will keep kitty entertained for hours with a dangly toy and ribbons to attack and swat away at! There’s a hidey hole in the bottom with a crinkly pad where they can take a nap after so much fun. It’s durable and made from easily cleaned material that has a close mesh to stop claws getting caught. For more information visit http://www.petplanet.co.uk/product.asp?dept_id=5948&pf_id=61839 

  1. Christmas Feast Gift Box

Our Christmas Feast Gift Box for Cats will make your kitty’s eyes sparkle brighter than the shiniest bauble on the tree.

There’s also a jolly red and white ceramic bowl to enjoy all this goodness in, and some charming Christmas crackers.

  1. Catch Interactive Feeder

Catch is an innovative feeder that stimulates a cat’s natural instinct and helps turn feed-time into an inspiring hunting game. Not all cats have free access to the outdoors and Catch is modelled on a tuft of grass to replicate foraging and searching indoors.  Also, as the speed of eating is slowed, Catch is perfect to use for over-weight cats or those prone to gulping and digestive problems.
