Do you have a finicky furry friend on your holiday gift list this year? You're in luck! We've rounded up the coolest cat-approved products to bring you purrfect gift ideas for every kind of cat — from the curious kitten to the most refined feline.
Any one of these special gifts could make your resident kitty purr with pleasure and maybe, just maybe, like the present this year even more than the box and wrapping paper it came in!
Here’s a little something that's both fabulous and functional for your feline fashionista! These colorful Italian leather collars, adorned with cute little silver fishies, are sure to make your kitty the envy of the catwalk.
Puddy Tat Collar With Silver Fish, $19.99 at WoofWear.us.
The Cat Corner Desk Lounger offers a special place for your cat to do what he does best: supervise your work. This plush bed sits on the corner of your desk, secured by Velcro. Big enough for most cats to stretch out, the lounger is equipped with 3-inch rails to help keep him from taking a tumble off the side. Your kitty will love his new spot, but we suspect you may still find him snoozing on your important papers now and then!
Cat Corner Desk Lounger, $55.30 at CatsPlay.

Here’s some furniture you won’t mind your cat scratching! This two-piece scratcher set is a feline-sized chair and ottoman for your cat to use as his lifestyle dictates. Sprinkle some catnip on it and your cat can scratch, lounge, play and nip to his heart’s content, without ruining your furniture (or stealing your seat, for that matter). This sturdy set is made in the United States from 100 percent recycled materials and can even go into the recycling bin after your cat is finished with it.

Of course, be sure to supervise your feline friend while playing with any small toy to ensure he doesn't swallow any part of it.
