Can you suggest any Valentine gifts for cats, Thomasina? I want to show my cats how much I love them. — Adore My Cats
Hi, Adore My Cats!
Thanks for asking. I love recommending Valentine gifts for cats!
I’m sure you know this, but the best gift you can give your cats on Valentine’s Day and every day is your undivided attention. So turn off your phone, TV, and computer for half an hour or so and concentrate just on them. Go for a walk together, or play with an interactive wand or fishing-pole toy, or just sit with them and talk with them. They’ll love that!
Here are some ideas for Valentine gifts for cats for you. Clicking on the links will take you to Amazon.
1. Yeowww Catnip Heart
We get Yeowww Catnip Hearts every year. They’re a Valentine’s Day tradition here. The hearts are stuffed with super-potent organic catnip. We love these things. They make us so happy! Belle and Muffitt and I like to swat them around. Sizzle likes to collect them in a pile and sleep on them.
These are actually rugs for humans, but they’d make great Valentine gifts for cats. We love to sleep on scatter rugs, and these are soft and comfy. You could even put one on the sofa or a chair. The rugs are 35 x 27 x 1 inches and are made of faux sheepskin. They’re vegan! They’re also washable and come in a variety of colors. Our human likes red, but that would look awful with my orange fur. I think I’d prefer the peach pink.
3. Heart-Shaped Food Bowl
Oh, how cute! We want these. I wish they came in Valentine’s Day red, but white will look nicer in our kitchen. Raised bowls are more comfortable, and they make it easier for us to digest our food. And these bowls are slightly tilted, so your cats’ food won’t get stuck along the edges where it’s hard to reach. The bowls are made of porcelain ceramic material and are free of lead and cadmium. They’re dishwasher- and microwave-safe. But beware: Many cats won’t eat food that’s been refrigerated and then microwaved.
The bowl is 5.5 inches wide x 4.7 inches high at its highest point. It’s 3.5 inches high in the front, where it tilts 25 degrees. It’s wide enough to prevent whisker fatigue and comes in several colors.
4. Chirping Red Bird Toy
Here’s a great Valentine gift for cats. A red bird! It’s not real, of course. We have one, and our human hates it. Every time it chirps, she thinks someone has caught a bird in our condo. We don’t do birds, either inside or outside. But swatting this little guy around and hearing it chirp is so much fun!
The bird is 2.5 inches wide and is stuffed with Cosmic Catnip. To refresh the catnip, just squeeze it around inside the bird.
5. Heart-Shaped Box
Yes, I know. Chocolate is very, very bad for cats. In case you’re wondering why, it’s made from the roasted seeds of cacao plants, and the caffeine and theobromine they contain are especially toxic to cats. In the very worst cases, it can cause rapid breathing, seizures, coma, and even cardiac arrest. But the box that toxic stuff comes in is safe, fun cardboard.
So here’s the best Valentine gift for cats ever. Remove all the chocolates, and give the cats the top and bottom of the box. They’ll be so happy, they’ll be your Valentines forever.
