7 Must-Have Items for Every Cat Lover

Cats are fascinating animals. They don’t provide humans with the unconditional love or protection that dogs do. Cat people will tell you that felines don’t require as much attention as dogs do. They are interesting to watch, and they are pretty to look at.

There are some items that every cat must have, such as a litter box, a bed, and a food & water dish to keep them feel comfortable and healthy. There are also items that every cat lover must have.

Must-Have Items for Every Cat LoverPin

A Cat-Themed T-Shirt

If you’re a cat enthusiast, you must have at least one t-shirt professing your love of the feline species. It can feature your favourite breed of cat, or it can say something that you like about cats.

If you Google cat t-shirts, you will find no shortage of tops professing a love of cats. However, if you want something special, you should go on an on-demand T-shirt printing website. They will let you upload an image of your favourite feline and put it on a t-shirt. You can show it off at the next family picnic or cat show.

A Cat Coffee Mug

The same websites that will allow you to print your very own cat t-shirt will allow you to print a coffee mug with an image of your cat’s face. If you would rather have a cup with a simple statement of your love for cats, you can make one of those as well. If the people in your office see your cat mug and like it, you can even sell them through the on-demand printing site.

A Cat Calendar

Most cat lovers will have more than one cat. Most cat lovers will never have as many cats as they would like. However, you can look at a brand new feline every day if you get a desk calendar featuring cats. If you would prefer a wall calendar, you can have a cat of the month poster. If you have a cat who is pretty enough to be a model, you can always create your very own calendar.

Cat Shelves

Cat shelves are items that benefit both cats and their owners. Cats are curious, athletic, and quite flexible. They love to jump, and you want to give them a more interesting place to jump than your kitchen counter.

There are cat cloud shelves that you can attach to your walls. There are hanging cat beds that offer the privacy a feline needs on occasion. Your cats will love to swing gently back and forth in this cozy hideaway.

Cat Ear Hat

If you want the world to know about your affinity for cats, you must have one of these beanies. They come in every colour of the rainbow, so you are certain to find one that will go with your winter coat. Your cats will understand that you want to be just like them when they see you in this pointy-eared cap.

Cat Jewelry

The cat is an animal most often immortalized in jewelry. You can find silver sterling images of cats on necklaces, or you can make yourself a cat charm bracelet. Put a picture of a favourite cat in a locket. If you would like something a bit more light-hearted, get yourself a cat in the hat or tiger wristwatch.

Cat Portraits

If your cats are just like your kids, you may want to consider getting a formal painting of them. There are artists out there who focus strictly on painting pictures of animals. Nothing says I love you quite like an oil painting. Your cat is unlikely to want to sit for something like this, so you should pick out your favourite photograph and give it to the artist.


If you are like most people, you have been engaged in an endless game of Monopoly or two in your lifetime. Now there’s a game for cat lovers called Catopoly, Instead of buying real estate, you buy and trade cats. Different breeds of cats have different values. Instead of going to jail, you get fleas. You may encounter the occasional catastrophe as well. Instead of top hats and cars, playing pieces include a can of sardines, a ball of yarn, and a mouse.

The holidays are coming up, and the average ailurophile will love you forever if you get them a cat-themed gift. If you just look online you will see that there is no shortage of paraphernalia to please cat owners and the animals they adore.
