Let’s face it we love our cats! Valentine’s Day 2017 isn’t the only time to remind them (and ourselves) of just how much we’re feline that love! Why not consider an ‘anytime…just because I Love You’ gift!
We did our annual scouring both on and off the inter-web to curate our latest selection of the 10 thoughtful and unique Gifts for Cats and Cat Lovers. Much as these gifts are genuine ways of expressing our love, we still feel that the greatest gift you can give a cat is a loving home. There are so many shelter cats needing homes and we wanted to applaud those who choose the ultimate gift of love and adopt a cat in need.
So without further ado, here’s our list in no purr-ticular order for those special cats you adore and the people who obey them! >^..^<
1. Cat Canoe by The Cat Ball
The Cat Canoe is made with thick and flexible materials that will give your kitty ultimate comfort while taking land-based naps. For Valentine’s Day, we adore the special edition Cat Canoe with two little deer in love. Look at the detail photos, and you will see that this pair of deer share a little heart! The background color is a light blue, and the lining is multi colored stripes. These fabrics are 100% cotton.
The soft components flex around the cat, cupping her in a warm and comfortable nest. Cats often rest their chins on the edge, and the flexibility of the materials allow them to curl up, sleep sideways or stretch out. The Cat Canoe is about 20″ long and about 8″ wide.
