I was on the hunt for some sweet Valentine's Day gifts for the house cat, aka the resident owner of the home -- the truly lazy, lovable, still-curious beast whose wish-is-your-command kind of cat. I am pleased to say that I found 8 really special ones for that cat this Valentine's Day.
1. Best Valentine's Day Cat Boa
The Ooo Laa Laa Boa may be
intended for dogs, but cats can easily wear them and look totally
stunning in them too. I don't know about the barrettes though. At Michi P.
2. Best Valentine's Day Cat Sweater
Readers know I'm not a big fan of cat clothing, but I must acknowledge that this is winter, people are economizing on their heat, many cats are short-haired, cats love to be warm, and this cat sweater is gorgeous! A "minky" soft turtleneck stretch sweater designed to conform to your cat's movements may be just what he needs to feel purrfect! At Michi P.
3. Best Valentine's Day Cat Collar Charm
The Fish Bone Charm's
sure to look extra charming on your kitty and she can wear it all year
long. Very pretty rhinestone fish head and tail in blue or pink on
silvertone metal, with lobster claw catch.
4. Best Valentine's Day Cat ID
A nice small anodized aluminum tag, 3/4", perfect for a cat's collar. The ID's come in 12 colors, 9 fonts, and many different graphics, but hearts are definitely in for Valentine's Day, and sure enough the whole tag is heart shaped. At Filine Fido Pet Designs.
5. Best Valentine's Day Daily-Wear Cat Collar
Why not get a cat collar to remind your cat year-round of her valentine status in your heart? I picked two that I like best, both with a safety break-away side release buckle and a removable jingle bell. For the special female cat, the XOXO Valentine Cat Collar:
And the precious male cat collar is the Candy Hearts Valentine Cat Collar.
6. Best Valentine's Day Catnip Toys
From George, a fox terrier and founding father of PATA, people for the aesthetic treatment of animals, comes catnip toys fit for the aesthetic loving cats in your lives: the Kitty Market Catnip Toy Set. The felt covered handsome threesome - fish, milk, and cardinal - are sure to be some of kitty's favorite "high" times.
7. Best Valentine's Day Cat Bed
Every cat deserves a square on the walk of fame, but might as well make it a comfy one. The 22" square, 4" deep Famous Feline Cat Bed is stuffed with a pillow of soft polyester, and the zipper cover is Sherpa and polar fleece with metallic gold accents and embroidery. It's washable too!
8. Best Valentine's Day Cat Party Collar
Pale pink goes great with any cat and Valentine's Day's a chance to strut her stuff in a pretty chiffon party collar from Charming that's adorned with tiny pink roses... works for dogs too! At Amazon.
