Two cats are sitting in a bar sipping tunatinis…
Male cat: ‘Do you have a date for Valentines Day?’
Female cat: ‘Yes, February 14th!’
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we did our usual research to gather and curate a collection of thoughtful, practical and unique gifts for both cats and their 2-legged servants. This is our biggest and best Cat Lovers Gift Guide ever! >^..^<
But first, did you know that the roots of Valentine’s Day lie in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, which was actually celebrated on Feb. 15? For 800 years the Romans dedicated this day to the god Lupercus, and during the festival, young women would place their names in a large urn. The young men would each draw a name from the urn and then be romantically linked with that young woman for the following year.
Hmmmm, maybe we should all adopt a similar celebration in every city, and get a huge urn with the names of all the needy rescue cats in it, and everyone picks a name and gives that chosen kitty a furever home.
And now, without further ado, here’s our 2018 Gift Guide (in no purrticular order) for those special cats you adore and the paw-some people who worship and obey them!
