Cat Birthday Treats

1. RompiCatz Butterfly Teaser

RompiCatz Rustlin' Butterfly Teaser

This is a fun cat wand that has three interchangeable butterflies that you can tease your cat with, helping them burn off some energy as they pounce and leap for it. The butterflies are really attractive and well-made, giving a crinkling sound as they move, which makes it very satisfying for your cat when they finally catch their prey. And because you can adjust the height and the butterflies spin 360 degrees as they move, it’ll take a long time for your cat to get bored.

2. Yeowww! Yellow Banana Catnip Toy

Yeowww Catnip Bananas Rags Birthday 8-8-89

What better way to give your cat or kitten a little birthday treat than with some catnip? The Yeowww! range of catnip toys are really high quality, containing 100% organically-grown catnip that will have your kitty super-excited and happy. It’s 7 inches in length so they can easily hold onto it, chase it around, or even just sit on it and enjoy the aroma. And the durable cotton twill will survive a lot of play before it ends up frayed or burst. Because not all cats respond to catnip, it’s worth checking whether yours does before buying this gift.

3. Ripple Rug Activity Mat

If you want something a little larger for your cat, and if they love being adventurous but also finding their own little hidey-holes to rest and relax, this mat is ideal. It’s double-layered, with the top layer attaching to the bottom via Velcro. You can therefore customize it with any bumps to give them a sheltered space inside, with holes that they can reach in and out of, or use to climb in. Combine this gift with the catnip banana hidden away in the layers and your cats could go crazy – mine did.

4. Dog Brick Treat Puzzle

Sure, this is called a dog brick puzzle, but who’s to say that dog treats can’t also be great for cats? This toy is fun for cats and helps to exercise their mind. Fill the compartments with their favorite treats and watch them work to flip them open, slide the bricks out of the way and nuzzle to remove the middle blocks too in order to access them all. Because there are different steps involved it’ll keep your feline friend entertained and stimulated for a while, and if your kitty can be a little destructive this’ll remove some of that energy too.

5. Hauspanther Lynks Felted Wool Toys

Hauspanther Lynks - Felted Wool Cat Toys

These soft wool toys are made to be perfect for cats. They’re crocheted from 100% Peruvian Highland wool and made into intertwined rings. This gives them the ideal shape and texture to give your cat hours of fun, and just be a joy for them to hold. You can choose from a wide range of colors and they come in sets of three, so your cat can enjoy holding or carrying them, or batting them around, and even if they manage to lose one somewhere you’ll have two backups waiting.

6. Corduroy Indoor Cat Tunnel

Large Corduroy Cat Tunnel by Litter-Robot, Light Grey, Interactive Cat Furniture and Play Tunnel, Accessories and Toys, 55" x 12"

You might think a tunnel seems like an odd idea for a present for a cat’s birthday but many cats adore this type of toy. Firstly, they’re extremely comfortable, with the soft corduroy interior the ideal place for your cat to curl up. And because the tunnel gives them a sheltered space, don’t be surprised to find them snuggled up and napping in there. Then, when it’s time for a little more excitement and your cat has the zoomies, they’ll love darting through the tunnel, or using it as a place to hide and pounce on other unsuspecting toys when hunting. And because the tunnel is flexible you can bend it into different shapes to keep it fresh and interesting.

7. Blackhole Catch The Tail Toy

This is an interactive cat toy that is almost completely hands-off for you. Just turn it on and sit back as your cat has all kinds of fun. It works by rotating a ‘mouse’ toy underneath the tarp, making a squeaking sound and moving closer to the center as it spins. Your cats will love to try and catch the toy, pouncing on it as it makes a noise or peeks out from under the tarp. There are different speed settings, and it works on all different floor types, so you’ll have no trouble with it in your home.

What birthday is complete without a birthday cake? Of course, it’s best to give your cat a ‘cake’ made from something they normally have in their diet, whether that’s sardines, canned or raw food. You could try this recipe for a birthday cake for your cat – you’ll just need to improvise to use a food that your cat normally eats. As long as you add a birthday candle, it’ll look great.

    Such a super lurvely and fun post, Jenny honey! I totally agree with all the fabulous and pawesome treats you’ve listed! There is no such thing a kitteh who is too spoiled in my opinion! 🙂 <3

    Oh, the gifts and treats we've given Our Lurvely Girl over the past 9 years are just too numerous to mention and are one of the reasons we can hardly turn around in our living room and den without bumping into or stepping on a cat toy or piece of cat furniture…lol. It's crowded here in our tiny Casa Johnson apartment! (Drives my hubby crazy but he gets over it quickly if I just let him rant about it every now and then and make no comment back…lol. Besides, Miss PSB has her daddy just where she wants him…under her total control with one bat of her beautiful blue eyes and her adorable chirps and purrs…) 😉 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love & purrs!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3 <3 <3
