11 Gift Ideas For Cat Lovers That Don't Include A Furry Feline Sweater
You probably have a few friends who post endless Instagram photos of their cat and manage to work Fluffy’s latest antics into every conversation. Congratulations: you are friends with a cat person! People who love cats are pretty much the best people of all, and shopping for their gifts is a blast. After all, with the proliferation of Internet cat fans, there is a wide (and often weird) variety of gift ideas for cat lovers for sale.
Clothes, home goods, books, and glassware are all available with cat-centric designs. Some of these designs are pretty bold — there are a lot of goods on Etsy featuring cats in space — but others are subtle enough to fit in with any decorating scheme or wardrobe. Cats are one trend that will not fade out any time soon.
Whether your buddy is a loud-and-proud crazy cat lady or a more reserved feline fancier, at least a few of these options will make for a fitting gift. Tea drinkers, fashion devotees, and art aficionados can get a little more cat-ified. While the wine for cats may be difficult to score, nearly everything else imaginable has a cat component readily available. So enjoy browsing these fanciful gifts for your favorite cat person.
