Pressies for Your Pussycat

If the last time you sang, “What’s new, pussycat?” to your beloved feline friend he or she rewarded you with an ironic eyebrow arch (okay, even more ironic than usual), he’s probably due for a treat or two. Given that Christmas is upon us, why not get him or her a kitty stocking and fill it with treats?

It doesn’t have to be expensive. (Though, if you are a cat fanatic like a lot of people I know—or a dog one, for that matter—you might just go all out for your furry friend. There are pets out there more spoiled than kids that I know!) Here are some ideas to make your cat compadre’s spirits bright this Christmas.

Yarn. What a cheap and easy gift! Don’t you wish you could satisfy everyone on your list this easily? Get one skein, get several—does it matter? If your cat likes to bat stuff around, he’ll be thrilled to get this as a gift.
