We recently chose our favorite toys and treats for your favorite canine friends, so now it's time to round up the best of the best for your other four-legged companions: cats!
While sometimes they can be a bit harder to please than pups, cats are just as fun to spoil with new trees to climb, toys to bat around and tasty morsels for nibbling. And if your cat is especially particular, imagine the brownie points you'll earn!
More important than the snuggles you'll get is your cat's overall health. The products you'll find below are part of a healthy cat environment that offers such benefits as mental stimulation, physical wellness, exercise and a good spot for sharpening those claws -- all of which will improve your cat's quality of life.
When shopping for cat trees, we looked at ones with wide and/or heavy bases that help prevent tipping (thus avoiding injury to your cat and damage to your home) and chose our favorites that have multiple levels and areas for your cat to scratch, as well as a fun, attractive appearance that will elevate the look of your home instead of being an eyesore.
For toys, it's most important to make sure you're not buying anything that can be easily swallowed by your cat; Paws.org recommends avoiding feathers, ribbons, plastic eyes, strings or other small parts that your cat might rip off the toy and ingest. Soft comfort toys, active toys (i.e. a ball they can roll) and catnip are all healthy and fun for your furry friend, so we rounded up some top-sellers we think you'll love.
Treat-wise, it's all about taste and nutrition. You may have to try a few to impress your little cat, but we selected some of the most popular products on the market that appeal to a broad range of feline palates. A perennial favorite of cats everywhere are Temptations treats, which are irresistible to millions of cats around the world and have under two calories each for a light, health-conscious choice.
