Cat heads throw blanket

This super cozy blanket is made of soft sherpa fleece, so it gets softer the more that it’s washed.

The blanket is available in three sizes, too, so there’s plenty of room for plenty of cats.

Custom pet coffee mug

Cat lovers can enjoy coffee, tea, and other beverages out of this mug personalized with their cat’s face on it. All you need to do is include a photo of the cat and an artist will turn the photo into a customized work of art. The kitty is then printed onto the ceramic mug so it’s resistant to fading, peeling, and scratching. The mug is microwave- and dishwasher-safe, and available in 11- or 15 fluid-ounce sizes.

It’s the thought that counts

When shopping for a cat lover, any of these items would make for a great gift. If you want to make the gift extra-special, then consider including some items that the recipient can share with their cat. Adding in some treats or cat toys shows that you’re considerate of the recipient’s cats, too. Alternatively, think about making a donation to an animal shelter in the recipient’s name, or in the name of their cat. Shelters and rescues depend largely on donations, and a donated gift is a great way to make a meaningful, long-lasting impact.

If you're lucky enough to live with a beloved feline, you know how quick cats can be. They leap from counter to counter, zoom around the apartment, and occasionally grab you and bite your hand.
