Great gifts for cat lovers can be a humorous take on the cat-and-cat-owner relationship. Other gifts can be thoughtful, sentimental tokens of affection. Or they can be for the cats in the cat lover's life, as new toys can be a great source of amusement and entertainment for all. If the timing is right, ta pet can be the perfect gift for a cat lover.

Humorous Gifts

If the cat lover has a good sense of humour, a funny cat gift will be well-received. Humorous gifts for cat lovers are plentiful, from toys to books. Novelty toys include a "Crazy Cat Lady" action figure and the "Cat-A-Pult Kitty Flinger." Books include "Stuff on My Cat" and other tales including funny cat anecdotes. There is also the "Bad Cat Page-A-Day" calendar, a gift the recipient can enjoy every day of the year.

Thoughtful Gifts

If the cat lover has cats in his or her life, a painting or portrait of the felines makes a thoughtful gift. For a homemade touch, create a scrapbook of the cat lover and his or her pets, or create a voucher that can be redeemed for pet-sitting favours. Also, try asking the cat lover's favourite pet-sitter for a gift token. If the cat lover does not have a cat, try jewellery with a cat figure, like a necklace or earrings.

Gifts for Cats

One sure-fire way to please a cat lover is to get a gift for the cats in his or her life. Try toy mice, balls that rattle, or catnip-filled toys. Cat trees and beds are other big hits with felines. For the budget-sensitive cat lover, practical gifts like cat litter, new litter boxes and food are greatly appreciated. On the decorative side, try beautiful dishes for cat food and water or mats for food and water bowls.

A Cat

Giving the gift of a pet is a serious undertaking but can be well worth the effort. The recipient should be receptive, able and willing to own a cat (or another one). If the recipient is not ready at the time for a pet or would prefer to pick out the cat personally, the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offers a Gift-a-Pet Certificate. Take time to consider a pet as a gift and make sure the recipient truly wants one. If the recipient agrees, she will be overjoyed at the new addition.
