cats are beautiful, Funny, strange creature. If you are lucky enough to be loved by someone, it is your God-given responsibility to give them a comfortable and fun home. If you’ve recently adopted a pet, we’ve written about the supplies you should get, but once you have this pet in your home, you’ll want to create a healthy, welcoming space for them. Cats need certain types of environments to play, scratch, and relax.
Here are our favorite products after months of testing on our own cats. Even if our pet refuses a specific product, we still check the overall construction, design and value to see if it will work for other kittens. Felines can be finicky, so you may have to go through a few options to find the right one.
If you’re more of a dog lover, we’re not against you; we also have dog supplies and accessories guides.
Update October 2022: We’ve added a refillable cat scratcher, a slow feeder pad and a detachable collar.
