Gift Ideas For Your Cats – My Family Ties

Don’t forget about your cat this Christmas, we have our own beloved cat Toots and she is spoiled rotten at Christmas, mainly by our daughters.  There are so many great toys  you can buy to treat your cat this holiday season and below are a few that I have for my own cat this year. Both our girls just love having a cat and she is so much part of the family which makes it so easy to treat her too this holiday.

Organic Catnip Mouse £4.00
Available from Beauty Naturals
Our cat loves catnip toys and this fun catnip mouse is a great toy for your cat this Christmas. It is filled with organic catnip (Nepeta Cataria) which cats go crazy for, try it out with your cat, and they will play, chew, lick and purr over it!  My cat just loves this mouse toy and will play with it madly up and down the stairs, it’s so funny to watch!

12 month Subscription £25.00

This is my teen daughter’s favourite magazine, she never misses a month as it is jam packed with everything you need to know about looking after your cat, with plenty of ideas for cat themed gifts for owners too. A perfect gift idea for any cat owner to ensure they never miss an issue.

Snowman Teaser £1.00 – Jolly Moggy

Our cat loves to chase feathers and ‘hunt’ them down across the carpet, and this toy from Jolly Moggy (available from has become her new favourite toy to play with, the best thing about this toy is that you can get in on the play too as the snowman is on a pole, and the bell on the end let’s the cat know that it is time to play.

 Fetch Cat Collar From £1.99
There are plenty of cat collars to chose from on the Fetch website and this pretty silver one was ideal for out cat Toots.  With a bell to let you know where she is at all times,  this collar is just the right thickness so not to irritate. We have tried so many different collars that our cat didn’t like so it is good to finally find one that she has taken to.

Christmas Cat Balls  £3.49 – Jolly Moggy
Also from Jolly Moggy (and available from are these four fun cat balls, our cat Toots loves to play with them up and down the stairs.  In festive colours these toys will help encourage your cat to play , our cat is a little shy and playing with her with these toy balls has helped her to be more sociable with us, and it is never a chore for our girls to have another toy to play with Toots.

Pet Head Cat De Shed Shampoo £9.99
Strawberry Lemonade

To keep your cat clean and fresh this holiday, why not try Pet Head’s De Shed Shampoo, easy to use, kind to the skin, paraben free and ph adjusted, this shampoo will help if you have a cat (like ours) that sheds a lot of hair. This gorgeous smelling formula drastically reduces shedding by laying down the hair neatly and removing excess hair, leaving the coat smooth and silky. Make sure you avoid your cat’s eyes and ears when you use Pet Head Shampoo.
Pet Head Fizzy Kitty Mousse £10.99
Strawberry Lemonade

Also from Pet Head is the Fizzy Kitty Mousse, if your cat doesn’t like baths this is a great alternative, as it is a no-rinse foam shampoo.  The gentle formula has a fruity scent and is ph balanced and free from parabens, and as there is no spray noise from the nozzle I found that there was less chance that Toots would run away when I applied it. All you need to do is massage a little into the cat’s coat and fluff up with a towel, a very easy product to use.
So there you have it, a selection of gift ideas this holiday season for your cat, I know that we tend to spoil our cat Toots and even more so at Christmas.
What will you be gifting your cat this Christmas?

Merry Christmas!
