Automatic Cat Litter Box

Automate your cat litter box cleaning routine with an automatic litter box. These self-cleaning litter boxes are not only convenient for cat owners, but they keep your home and cat smelling fresh and clean. There are many to choose from, but one of the best-rated automatic cat litter boxes on the market is the Litter-Robot by Whisker. This premium litter box automatically separates cat waste from the clean litter, depositing the clumps into a drawer below for easy removal. Other options include ScoopFree by PetSafe and Petree Litter Box with Wifi.

Interactive Cat Toys

Just like interactive toys are great for dogs, they are also great for cats. Interactive cat toys provide a variety of opportunities for your cat to hunt, chase and play. They are great outlets for instinctual hunting behaviors, great for opening up shy cats and encourage exercise that keeps your cat healthy and alert.

Cat GPS tracker 

Cats love to roam around, meaning that they may leave your house during the day and come back home, or they can be gone for days or sometimes even weeks. A cat GPS tracker is one of the best ways to keep track of your pet. Examples of pet GPS trackers include Jiobit that attaches to your pet’s collar and pairs with a smartphone app to track them at any distance. The popular Tile products also have a pet tracker to help locate your cat. You can locate your cat by simply clicking “Find” in the Tile app on your phone to make the tile ring or you can use the Bluetooth pet tracker to help you find a pet that has escaped from your yard. There are many GPS trackers available to help you keep track of your cat and know that they are safe.


And that’s a wrap! We hope that our recommendations on the best pet Christmas gifts help you find the pawfect gift for your pet this holiday season.
