10 Great Christmas Presents for Your Cat That Won’t Break the Bank!


It’s a well-known fact that cats suffer terribly from present envy.  But don’t worry: it’s easy to avoid the misery of a jealous cat on Christmas Day by providing a gift or two for your feline friend.

Here’s a selection of 10 fun gifts for your cat that won’t break the bank.  Most of these items are from two of the major UK online pet supply outlets – Pet Planet and ZooplusUK – so that, hopefully,  you can add them to your usual cat food/litter order to save on p&p.

(Above)  The Kitty Boink Cat Toy£0.39 each from Pet Planet.  All 5 of my lot absolutely love these little woven plastic tubes and never seem to tire of them.  They love batting them, throwing them in the air, and carrying them around – they turn up in the strangest of places!  (I’ve also seen these in my local branch of Pets at Home for £1.00 for a pack of two, but I don’t know if they’re stocked in every branch.)

Rustling Toy Balls£1.49 for pack of four from ZooplusUK.  Cats love the noise and texture of these balls, and they’re easy to carry around.


Trixie Feather Waggler Toy£0.99 each, or £1.99 for pack of three from ZooplusUK.  Everyone loves a feather stick, and these are great value.


Cat Ping Pong Balls£1.99 for pack of six from Pet Planet.  Ping pong balls are always great fun, and as there’s six of these in a pack your cat should always be able to find one to play with!


Jolly Moggy Chirping Mouse£1.99 from Pet Planet.  This mouse chirps when squeezed, so will reward your cat with an enticing sound when caught by the mighty hunter.


Cat Charmer Cat Dangler£4.99 from ZooplusUK.  Cats will love chasing the colour-fast, non-toxic 120cm long fleece ribbon, and the manufacturers claim  this toy is virtually indestructable: the fleece is scratch and tear resistant,  and the pole will bear weights up to 13kg.


Kitty City Mouse Hunt£4.99 from Pet Planet.  This toy will keep your cat occupied while he/she ‘fishes’ for toys through the openings.  Supplied with a jingle ball and a plush toy.


Cat Toy Birds£5.50 each from the Cool for Cats UK Etsy shop.  Big enough for a wrestling match and light enough to be thrown around.  Made from upcycled denim and 100% wool felt, and filled with a mix of catnip, valerian and silver vine that your cat will find impossible to resist!  £4.50 from the sale of each bird will be donated to the Celia Hammond Animal Trust.

cat-bird-toysXL Hearts and Roses Cat Den with Scratcher£8.99 from Zooplus. This pretty cardboard den incorporates a scratcher and is big enough for large breeds to use comfortably.


Danish Design Crinkle Play Bag£11.99 from Milbry Hill.  A hideaway made from fish design fabric that contains a layer of crinkle material to facilitate the marvellous Thrashing Around For No Apparent Reason game.  Available in an assortment of colours, but I don’t think you get to choose which one you end up with.  Also available for £12.99 from Amazon (eligible for Super Saver Delivery).
