The best pet treats and toys to get this holiday season

With so many options for cat toys and treats, looking for the purr-fect gift for your feline friend can be overwhelming. Each cat has their own likes and dislikes, but unless they can learn to talk, their humans will have to lend a hand in deciding what’s best. Regardless, your curious kitty is bound to be interested in any gift, especially ones like these.



Now your cat can join the party, too! Friskies Party Mix Crunch Chicken Lovers Cat Treats are both healthy and delicious, so you don’t have to worry about over spoiling your fur baby. (Is that even possible?) Each individual treat, which is made of real chicken as its main ingredient, contains only two calories. The crunchy coating on the outside helps smooth away plaque on your kitty’s teeth while occupying her with a titillating texture unique to this treat. You can purchase Friskies Party Mix in a wide variety of sizes, all of which come in a resealable pouch or tub, so the party can keep on going.

If you’re looking for a treat that lasts a little longer, Sheba Meaty Tender Sticks Salmon Flavored Cat Treats can be fed in two ways. Your cat can earn pieces of the stick one by one or take her time to munch on a whole stick — though it won’t last nearly as long as a dog’s bone since it’s a treat, not a toy. These treats are made of real meat and are grain-free, which is recommended for cats with sensitive digestive systems. (That means no corn, soy, wheat, or artificial flavoring!) Each package of treats contains five individually wrapped sticks, so you don’t have to give them to your cat all at once, even though she’d love it if you did.


Christmas is for cats, too! If your feline friend is feeling festive, she’ll love pawing through Frisco’s Holiday Stocking Variety Pack. This adorable stocking comes stuffed with an array of popular cat toys, some of them filled with catnip to keep the fun going even longer. The toys included range from balls and pom-poms to bells and crinkly objects, so every cat will find something interesting to play with — and since the toys are either plastic or polyester, they’re safe besides.

This holiday treat makes a great gift for any feline, whether it’s your cat or someone else’s enjoying the toys on Christmas morning. At least it will keep them away from the tree and out of the wrapping paper!

For a peaceful sleep on Christmas Eve, keep your kitty entertained with Petstages Nighttime Bug Cat Toy. This adorable cuddle bug is supersoft and filled with catnip, so boredom is out of the question. Fun glow-in-the-dark patterns will help your kitty keep the fun going long into the night. Since the stimulating fabric materials are so soft, your cat will have plenty to explore without waking you, which will make Christmas morning all the more magical.

With these amazing treats and toys on your shopping list, Christmas for your pets will be a cinch. You’ll be done wrapping before you know it, which only gives you more time to spend with your special furry friend.
