You have the option to purchase a gift box or a gift card that can be used immediately. As a bonus, you can choose between the CatLadyBox or the Crazy CatLadyBox that has extra gifts for the cat in their life.

Gifts for the Cat
This natural calming product is something we at The Cat Hospital of Media talk about every day with practically anyone who walks in the office. Feliway can help reduce day-to-day stress and behavioral stress at home and on the go. We trust this product to use not only in our own hospital, but with our cats at home. This odorless diffuser can help your cat start off on the right, stress-free paw. Remember, even if cats don’t seem stressed or upset they may be internalizing these issues.
2. Puzzle Feeder
Puzzle feeders are excellent additions to your cat’s feeding regime. Not only can they help with minor health issues such as scarf and barf, but they also double as mental enrichment. Your cat will slow down when eating and use their natural hunting abilities to solve the puzzles. Using puzzle feeders will align with your cat’s natural instinct to play and eat, which, in return, cat help them live a happier and healthier lifestyle overall.
3. Doc and Phoebe’s Indoor Hunting Cat Feeder
If you want to take the puzzle feeders one step further, these indoor hunting feeders add the extra component of hunting to their natural cycle. The goal of these feeders, which was developed by a former veterinarian, is to eliminate the food bowl altogether by putting your cat’s food in these feeders and placing them around the house. Not only are these a fun way to add a little extra play and environmental enrichment in your cat’s life, they too can help with minor issues such as anxiety, inter-cat aggression, and scarf and barf. It’s also a great way to help our chunkier friends lose a few pounds in the new year; no longer will they be sitting by a food bowl waiting for food.
4. New Cat Toys
Why not introduce some new toys to your cat’s life this season? These adorable birds are great for individual and/or play with you. They’re stuffed with organic catnip, which makes them irresistible to play with. These plush toys are great for hunting, cuddling, and tossing for fetch. I bought these for my cats and they can’t get enough of them! Even my older kitty who doesn’t play much can’t get enough of these birds.
5. Cardboard Box
Not only are these free, but you can also help save the environment by recycling an old box or one that used to house a gift for someone else. Any size and shape will do. Cats have the ability to morph from solid matter to liquid when it comes to boxes. We promise, your cat won’t be able to tell the difference between a new, expensive gift and a recycled and free one. At the end of the day, all they really care about is which cardboard box they can sit in next.
