Chatting Cats: Cat Themed Gift Guide On A Budget

MeOW  Brrrrrrrrrr  Kittens Has it ever turned cold here. RaenaBelle, you need to learn to share the cuddles. You were hoggin’ all the mommy warmth last night and me nearly froze me’s pantaloons off.  

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house looking out window and Raena sits on cat tree ledge

 

 

 

          Pantaloons? What pantaloons, sissy? Do you even have pantaloons? Do I’s have pantaloons? 

 

Me’s bloomers, Raena. And yes, you have ‘em too. 

 

Raena licks paw while sitting on cat tree

 

 

 

          Oh, bloomers. Well, why didn’t you just meow that sissy? I’s thought I’s was gonna have to add pantaloons to mine’s list of wants.   

 

List of wants? What list of wants Raena?

  

          Oh you know sissy, the one I’s been makin’ while we’ve been shoppin’ fur our Gift Guide.  

 

Dezi sits atop cat tree looking down

 

 

 

Raena, you’re not s’posed to be shoppin’ fur yourself. We’re s’posed to be pickin’ out things that would make a great gift ideas fur others. 

 

          I’s was sissy. But mommy says the bestest gift you can get fur somepawdy is the gift you’d want fur yourself. 

 

Dezi lays on chair arm beside mommy A

 

 

 

(Dezi rolls her eyes and shakes her head)  Well Raena, meowin’ of shoppin’, we’ve got our Gift Guide to get out today. We wanted to include somethin’ fur everypawdy, but on a budget. After all, who knows more ‘bout stretchin’ a dollar than us?   

 

Raena lays atop cat tree looking down

 

 

 

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. What do ya’ say we start with Gifts fur kitty?  

 

Sounds good to me Raena. With innernet shoppin’ in the palm of your hands, choices are only limited by your pawcket book. One of the furst places we go too when lookin’ fur a good deal is ebay. Now, ifin you’ve got time and patience you might wanna try your luck at the bidding wars fur your deal; but, we purrfur the buy it now option. We know fur sure how much we’re payin’ and we don’t have to worry ‘bout someone stealin’ it out from unner us in the last 2 seconds. We like to shop with sellers who have a rating of 95% and up. We also luv free shippin’. Who doesn’t luv somethin’ free, right? So, let’s take a look at some of the pawsum deals you can get on a budget. 

 

Dezi enjoying a silvervine stickOh the vine is fine…

 

 

 

1.  How’s ‘bout a baggie of silvervine? This relative of catnip is much more potent and is well received by even cats who aren’t affected by regular nip. At $3.75 and free shippin’, this would thrill almost any cat on Christmas meownin’.    

 

Raena carries the crinkle ball from the Kong Incline cat scratcher

2.  Are you a kitty who luvs a good crinkle ball  ($3.99 for 12)?  

 

3.  Or maybe you need your very own tunnel  ($8.95)? This is 4 feet of fun that can be collapsed down when the peeps have company and need the floor back. 

 

4.   Here’s somethin’ we haven’t tried, but think would make a great gift fur the feline who has everything. Your very own lickable catnip treat fur $1.79 and free s/h from Hong Kong. Now this wouldn’t make it here befur Christmas, but hey, we’re cats. We deserve gifts every day, right? 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher

5.  Our favorite corrugated Cat Scratcher at $38.99 and free shippin’. We couldn’t pawssibly have a Gift Guide fur kitties without includin’ a great scratcher. At nearly 34” long and 10” high and wide, it’s not only good fur scratchin’, but makes the purrfect loungin’ spot.   

 

Raena sits on cat tree with mouth open

 

 

 

          Now that kitty’s happy, let’s take a look at some ideas fur the cat men out there. We realize not all cat men wanna flaunt their special luvs fur kitties in the same way as their female counterpawrts. We’re not sure why, but most cat daddies don’t wanna wear a t-shirt announcin’ their cat craziness. But that’s okay, we luvs all the cat daddies out there. That brings us to another place we like to check fur high quality bargain gifts, The LC. At purrices startin’ below $10.00 fur sterling silver, you can get the man in your life some amazin’ jewelry pieces.

 

Lion head leather bracelet

 

6.  This leather and stainless steel Lion’s head bracelet fur $9.99 would let you cat daddy’s show off your luvs fur the feline form in a masculine way. 

 

7.  Check out this Wrist Watch fur only $6.99 and free shipping. 

 

8.  We totally luvs this Yin & Yang 2 pc cat pendant fur him and her. And at only $8.99 with free shippin’ you can knock 2 peeps off your list with one purrchase. And sine it’s made of stainless steel, nopawdy’s gonna turn green. MOL  

 

RaenaBelle, me can’t believe you said that.   

 

 

          What sissy? Mommy said mystery metals are never a good idea fur gifts. They make some peeps rot. Anyways…

 

 

9.  We found this adorable little cat face dish clearanced at $5.99. Now I’s know what you’re thinkin’, but we think it would make a great little dish on a desk or table fur like keys, paper clips and such. Another way the cat daddies can show their devotion to the feline form without screamin’ it. 

 

 

 10. Now this one could be fur anypawdy, not just the men. Everypawdy needs a calendar, right? Paw on over to cafepress.com to purrsonalize your gift. Prices start at $9.99. They’re even offurin’ free shippin’ right now. And of course there’s lots of other things you can purrsonalize too.

 

11.  Fur the young animal luvver these adorable Paw Print earrings at $9.99 would make a great choice. And feed some hungry shelter cats.  

 

Dezi lays on chair arm looking at mommy A

 

 

 

Those earrings would make a great gift fur anypawdy with pierced ears Raena. Our next find is a bit whimsical, but hey, sometimes ya’ need a little whimsy. 

 

Cat ice tray

12.  Ifin you’re lookin’ fur a fun novelty gift to spice up a pawrty or even every day, this kitty ice cube tray just might be the thing at only $5.99. 

 

13.  Me purrsonally found this store on ebay. They have lots of great kitty and woofy pendants fur the ladies startin’ at $8.00 with free shippin’. 

 

14.  We know many have lost their furry luvs this past year and it’s really tuff, specially on the holidays. Mommy still cries herself to sleep a lot of nights. So, we thought this adorable little pendant at $7.99 was a great memorial gift. 

 

15.  This jaguar Key Chain is a must. After all, doesn’t everypawdy have at least one key? And it’s under $7.00 with free shippin’. 

 

So, there you have it…15 gifts on a budget. Now me knows the cat scratcher is a bit costly. But trust me, it’s worth every penny. 

 

Raena lays on chair back

 

 

 

          It is sissy. And, I’s know we’re hopin’ one finds it way to our house. Even ifin you hadn’t hurled all over ours, we’ve purretty much scratched it to death, on all sides. Altho’ I’s still think some of the bestest gifts don’t cost a thing. I’s know fur a fact that mommy’s never been happier than when I’s gave her a few slow blinks and purrs. 

 

You’re right Raena. Even budget items are ‘spensive when you don’t have any green papers. And it’s fur that very reason, that we always, always include our thoughts on the purrfect purriceless gifts. A hug and a kiss and a me luvs you can’t be beat. A flower from the garden can make any mother smile.

 

          I’s heard it could even be a weed ifin it’s given with luvs sissy. 

 

Dezi and Raena look out window from atop the cat tree

 

 

 

That’s true Raena. Anyways, we hope we’ve helped you find some last minute gifts guaranteed to arrive by Christmas. More ‘purrtantly, we wanna fank you all fur your luv. You’ve given us the greatest gift anyone can give. We luv and cherish each and every one of you. And it’s our purrayer that you receive all you need and all you want today and every day. 

 

          That’s fur sure sissy. We’re also linkin’ up with Comedy Plus fur Feline Furiday. 

 

And don’t furget to join the Blessing Train.

Chatting Cats: Happy Thanksgiving Slow Blinks

Hey everypawdy, are ya’ there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Are ya’ll ready fur Fanky Fanksgivin’? I’s sure is. (Dezi walks up to Raena and nose bumps her) Hey sissy, are you ready fur tomorrow? You know we’re gettin’ a special treat cuz not only is it Fanky Fanksgivin’ but it’s also your gotchaday. By the way, do you know why mommy keeps snatchin’ me up and cryin’? She gets all mushy and soaks mine’s furs to mine’s skin. I’s swear, I’s had more baths the last couple of days than I’s had mine’s whole life. 

 

Dezi sits atop the cat tree while Raena sits on the small perch

 

 

 

          She’s happy Raena. Don’t you ‘member her squealin’ like a banshee the other day? You know, when you slow blinked to her. You’re whole life she’s played the slow blink game and nuffin’. When you furinally slow blinked back mommy was beside herself with happiness. 

 

Raena post surgery sits on small perch in front of door looking backCheck out mine’s eyes. Aren’t they lookin’ pawsum?!!

 

 

 

Really? Mine’s slow blinkin’ makes mommy that happy? I’s didn’t do it befur cuz it hurt too bad. Ya’ know, always scratchin’. Scratch, scratch, scratchin’ mine’s eyes. Now that it doesn’t hurt anymore I’s just wanted mommy to know how much I’s luvs her. I’s never ‘magined she was gonna lose her marbles and get all mushy gushy fur days. 

 

          Purrlease Raena, you know how emotional mommy can be. Kittens, She can cry over a commercial. 

 

Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

 

Yeah that’s true sissy, I’s just didn’t know how ‘purrtant slow blinkin’ was to mommy. I’s always let her know how much I’s luvs her in other ways without her openin’ up the flood gates, so I’s just didn’t x’pect this. Guess it’s a good thing I’s like hugs and cuddles. How long do ya’ think this might last? 

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house and Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

          Who knows Raena. T’ween the guilt she feels fur not figgerin’ out what was wrong with your eyes sooner and the way you’ve been checkin’ everythin’ out like you’re seein’ it fur the very furst time, she could be gushin’ fur years.

 

Raena sits on small perch looking out door

 

 

 

Well sissy, I’s don’t blame mommy, she tried to help me and the minute she knew what was wrong and how to fix it, she did. I’s have so much to be fanky fankful fur. I’s one Blest kitty girl fur sure. And meowin’ of Blessings, tomorrow, we’ll be Giving Thanks fur the many Blessings we have.

 

Dezi sits on cat tree house while Raena sits on small perch at door

 

 

 

          We will Raena. Thanksgiving here in the U.S. is a day celebrated cuz of the fortune our ancestors found when they came across this amazing and fertile new world, America. And while we’re certainly grateful fur all of that and the fact that we were born here and are citizens of this great nation, we actually celebrate by Giving Thanks fur those Blessings we receive each day, like our home, our family and furiends, our health and so much more. Me purrsonally is very Fankful, cuz had mommy not saved me that Fanksgivin’ so long ago, me surely would have died.

Tell All Tuesday: A Cat’s Gotta Scratch #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Kittens we’re getting’ a late start today. With the weather bein’ up and down and all over the place, mommy’s body be screamin’. I’s thought we’d never settle down fur sleep last night.

 

Raena lays atop cat tree with tongue out

 

 

Dezi lays on cat tree

 

 

 

          We didn’t Raena. 5:30 a.m. ain’t night time; it’s the wee, wee hours of the meownin’. Fankfully, we didn’t have to worry ‘bout gettin’ ‘round at any purrticular time so we could get in some cuddle time with mommy. 

 

I’s so luvs cuddlin’ with mommy, don’t you sissy? I’s like cuddlin’ with you too…when you let me. 

 

Dezi stands on cat tree looking out door

 

 

 

          Yeah, well, it’s too hot when we cuddle Raena. T’ween your floof and me’s floof there’s no room fur air. 

 

 

OurPets Cat Scratcher

 

 

 

Whatever sissy. Hey, did you see our new scratcher? I’s luvs to scratch, don’t you? 

 

 

OurPets cat scratcher

 

          Yeah Raena, me does. Me says a kitty can never have too many scratchers. Y, Even a kitty without claws needs a good scratcher. Purrlease, don’t interpret that statement to mean declawing is okay. Never declaw your kitty.

 

Dezi scratches ourpets scratcher while Raena sniffs the back

 

(Dezi and Raena shudder as they think about having their paw knuckles amputated) Oh sissy, I’s can’t even ‘magine what that would be like. Fanky fankfully, we’ll never have to know. And, our new OurPets Alpine Climb Cat Scratcher is the purrfect solution fur all kitties. It actually comes in 2 pieces, so whether you’re a vertical scratcher or a horizontal scratcher, you’ll luvs it. There’s some assembly required, but trust me, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. The name on chewy implies there are different colors, but we received the yellow one just like in the foto. It measures, 18.8” X 8.2” X 10” and can be used laying flat like you see us doin’ it today, or inclined with the bottom attached. It also comes with a bag of catnip and costs $14.39. You can also get it on autoship and save an extra 5%. There are sticky strips that allow the scratcher top to be securely attached to the incline bottom. Let’s see what Chewy says ‘bout it.

Dezi and Raena sniff our pets scratcher

 

 

 

          It didn’t take us long to check it out, did it Raena? We didn’t get the toy Chewy mentions in the description. As soon as mommy put it on the floor me was all over it. Least me was till you came and stuck your floofy paws on it. 

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the ourpets cat scratcher

 

 

I’s wanted to scratch too sissy. Why should you be the only one havin’ any fun? I’s gotta tell ya’, I’s like all kinds of scratchin’, doesn’t really matter to me whether it’s vertical or horizontal, just give me somethin’ to sink mine’s claws into. 

 

Dezi and Raena argue over the ourpets scratcherDezi: Hey, me was here furst!!! (Dezi raises paw and hisses) 

Raena: It’s mine’s turn now, sissy. I’s wanna scratch too.

(We’re posting this foto so you can see we aren’t always purrfect.

Even we have squabbles every now and then)

 

 

          Ya’ know Raena, you mentioned earlier that this pawsum scratcher could be added to an auto ship. And me got to thinkin’, some peeps may wonder why you’d want a scratcher on auto delivery. Me can tell ya’ that we kitties not only like to scratch, but we need to scratch. It’s one of those drives we just can’t ignore. And, a good scratcher is just what you need to make sure kitty doesn’t scratch up your furniture. Most kitties like corrugated cardboard, but they’re not meant to last furever. So, havin’ it on auto ship means kitty will get a fresh new scratcher with each shipment and your couch will stay safe. Me gives the Alpine scratcher 4 paws up. 

 

Raena scratches ourpets cat scratcher

 

 

 

Me too sissy. I’s luvs it, 4 paws from me.. And, when it’s elevated, there’s a small hole that a tiny kitty, one smaller than us, can get into and ambush your fursibs from. MOL  Mommy says the purrice is okay. And as always, Chewy ships all orders $49.00 and up fur furee. With Christmas right ‘round the corner, this would make a pawsum gift. Trust me, any kitty receivin’ this unner their tree is gonna be one happy kitty.

 

Disclaimer: We received the OurPets scratcher in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends. 

 

          That’s true Raena. Me wouldn’t mind gettin’ a scratcher fur Christmas, or any other time fur that matter. Well, me’s gonna go scratch some more and take a nap. How ‘bout you? 

 

Raena washes her eye

 

 

 

I’s gonna take a little bath furst sissy. And then I’s’ll have a nap. 

 

Till the next time………………………………………………Be Blest!!!
