Useful Cat Items You Never Knew You Needed

What if we told you that there are a few items that could enhance the lives of both you and your cat? While it sounds like a gimmick, there are numerous items that are designed for this very purpose. You may not have thought about using them before, but after giving them a try you’ll appreciate just how practical and beneficial they are. Check out some useful cat items you never knew you needed.

Cat Scratcher
Scratching is a normal behavior and one that cats are highly motivated to display. It’s not realistic to try to prevent a cat from scratching. Instead, try redirecting their habit to scratch acceptable objects instead such as a PetFusion 3-Sided Vertical Cat Scratching Post or a PetFusion Cat Scratching Flip Pad.

Another great alternative to treat your cat to is the Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge. Made from recycled corrugated cardboard, non-toxic corn starch glue, and premium satin cardboard siding, it gives your cat a practical and enjoyable means to unleash all of its scratching desires.

Speaking of catnip, you may be wondering what all the fuss about it is. There are numerous benefits to giving your cat catnip. Catnip encourages your cat to enjoy themselves as well as move and play more. These benefits are particularly useful in helping overweight cats get the exercise they need to trim down.

If you’re after a high-quality batch to give to your cat, FAT CAT® Zoom Around the Room® high-test organic catnip is it. This 100% Organic Grown In USA product contains only the leaf and the flower. Comes in a zip-sealed plastic bag for ultimate freshness.

Cat Grooming Tools
Cats are considered low-maintenance pets.  However, they still require some care and attention. One important aspect of cat care is grooming. Grooming your cat will help reduce the amount of hair shed which is why investing in quality cat grooming tools is one of the most useful items you can use as a cat owner.

Most cats can groom themselves, but certain breeds benefit from regular grooming. If you have a long-haired cat, it is essential to groom them regularly to avoid mats and tangles. In addition, regular grooming can help to reduce shedding, minimize hairballs, and keep your cat’s coat healthy and looking its best. While some people may view grooming as a chore, it can be a great bonding experience for you and your cat.

While it’s important to brush your cat regularly to help keep their fur clean and healthy, there are other benefits to this activity. Brushing can help your cat to relax and feel more comfortable around you. It can also be a bonding experience for the two of you. JW® GripSoft® Brushes offer a wide variety of options to bring out the shine in your pet’s coat.

Nail Clippers
There are several reasons to trim your cat’s nails. For one, it can help prevent your cat from scratching you or your furniture. Did you know that you can trim your cat’s nails at home? Here’s what you’ll need: Cat nail clippers or nail grinder, a towel, and Styptic Powder.
