Total Cat Mojo (Jackson Galaxy and Mikel Delgado) Image

I LOVE this book.  If there is ONE book that all cat guardians should read, I recommend this one!  It’s an easy read that provides great information, and you’ll understand your cats much better when you’re done.  Buy this right MEOW!

Cat Toys
Butterfly By Spinner Toy (PetZone)
Butterfly By Spinner Toy (PetZone) Image

This butterfly toy spins and flutters around its base and can take a pretty tough kitty cat beat down

Cat Catcher Refill Mouse for Da Bird (Go Cat)
Cat Catcher Refill Mouse for Da Bird (Go Cat) Image

This is a sturdy little fella that resembles a real mouse and is sure to trigger your cat’s predatory instincts!  It holds up well to abuse and fits perfectly on Da Bird wands.

Cat Charmer Rainbow Wand
Cat Charmer Rainbow Wand Image

If your kitty likes snakey toys, this is for you!  Also good for cats who may be intimidated by more quickly-moving wand toys.  Can also help cats with getting used to being touched using the soft fleece end.

Cat Dancer 101 Wire Toy
Cat Dancer 101 Wire Toy Image

The Cat Dancer is a classic toy that dangles five little paper rolls on a 30″ wire, simulating the movements of a flying insect.  Most cats have fun batting at it since it moves somewhat randomly and unpredictably.

Da Bird Pull-Apart Wand Toy with Feather Attachment
Da Bird Pull-Apart Wand Toy with Feather Attachment Image

While it’s not quite as sturdy as the one-piece Da Bird, this is great for travel and it still has a clip to accommodate different lures.  Great to have in your toy box!

Da Bird Wand Toy with Feather Attachment
Da Bird Wand Toy with Feather Attachment Image

This is my MUST HAVE cat toy! 3′ long wand 3′ long string clip to change out lures = happy kitties!

Da Purr-Peller Refill for Da Bird (Go Cat)
Da Purr-Peller Refill for Da Bird (Go Cat) Image

This feather attachment spins like a helicopter and is a fun change from the standard twirling feather attachments.  It’s a bit more fragile, but it’s a LOT of fun for kitties to chase!

Da Rat 3-Pack Refill for Da Bird (Go Cat)
Da Rat 3-Pack Refill for Da Bird (Go Cat) Image

The Da Rat is larger than Da Mouse and also works great with the Da Bird wand toy.  This lure is made with deer hide, which cats LOVE!!!  This is a three-pack, which will last you a long time because they are so sturdy.

Engazer USB Rechargeable Laser Pet Toy (ModMong)
Engazer USB Rechargeable Laser Pet Toy (ModMong) Image

NOT an Amazon link – will take you to ModMong’s website.  Comes in white and purple; the best laser pointer out there for kitties!  If your cat loves laser pointers, start a play session with it, then move on to a physical toy so your cat can complete the prey sequence.

Feather Toy Refill Lures (7 pcs) (Pet Fit for Life)
Feather Toy Refill Lures (7 pcs) (Pet Fit for Life) Image

This is another feather toy refill pack that works great with Da Bird – it has four feather tufts, one mouse, a longer feather toy, and a fuzzy worm.  It’s a great price for so many lures!

Fuzzy Worm Lures (5-Pack) (Pet Fit for Life)
Fuzzy Worm Lures (5-Pack) (Pet Fit for Life) Image

These seem to be very popular with the kitties these days!  Excellent bang for your buck, as they simulate small snakes or lizards.

Hexbug Nano Robotic Cat Toy
Hexbug Nano Robotic Cat Toy Image

These are tiny little robot bugs that move around somewhat randomly.  I put them in a box with paper so they can “hide”, making a fun game for my cats!  Comes in assorted colors.

Kararantula Insect Lure (Neko Flies)
Kararantula Insect Lure (Neko Flies) Image

Neko flies makes some good lures for cats!  I recommend cutting the string off of this lure and then using the metal loop to attach it to the Da Bird wand toy.

Mystery Motion Cat Toy (Petlinks)
Mystery Motion Cat Toy (Petlinks) Image

This is a feather that moves at variable speeds/patterns under a circle of fabric, which cats love!

Natural Feather Lure Refills (6 pcs) for Da Bird (Highland Farms)
Natural Feather Lure Refills (6 pcs) for Da Bird (Highland Farms) Image

These are fantastic feather refills for Da Bird – they are large and spin very well, and come at a great price for cats who go through feather lures quickly!  6 in each pack.

Ripple Rug (SnugglyCat)
Ripple Rug (SnugglyCat) Image

This is a toy that you can change up every day by either reconfiguring the top carpet (which attaches via velcro points) and by putting various toys inside of it.  Adult cats enjoy this too!

Swimming Robot Fish Toy (4-Pack)
Swimming Robot Fish Toy (4-Pack) Image

If your cat enjoys water, give these robot fishies a try!  They even light up with flashing LEDs and come with extra batteries.

Wiggly Balls Cat Toy 3-Pack (Dezi & Roo)
Wiggly Balls Cat Toy 3-Pack (Dezi & Roo) Image

These are super fun balls with fuzzy worm tails that cats love to bat around.  The ball is pretty bouncy so they keep on moving!

Cat-Friendly Home Items
Catit Senses 2.0 Corner Groomer
Catit Senses 2.0 Corner Groomer Image

These can be mounted to corners of walls or on furniture so that your kitty can rub on them as she passes by.  It’s a good way to let her leave her scent behind in her territory, and collect shedding fur.  The comb can be removed for cleaning.

Automatic Night Lights - 2 Pack (Energizer)
Automatic Night Lights - 2 Pack (Energizer) Image

I use these in my home around litterboxes.  Just because cats are better at seeing in the dark than we are, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need some light! These just plug in and turn on automatically when light levels get dark.

Door Buddy Latch and Stopper
Door Buddy Latch and Stopper Image

This product is amazing – SO SIMPLE and works great!  The strap latch keeps the door from opening too much, which will allow cats in but keep larger dogs and babies out.  The stopper keeps the door from closing all the way, keeping finger safe and stopping cats from getting locked in a room.  This enables you to give cats access to a room where their litterboxes and food are out of reach from dogs and kids, or as a safe space where they can just peacefully enjoy being alone.

Tall Baby Gate with Walk-Through (Regalo)
Tall Baby Gate with Walk-Through (Regalo) Image

If you need to separate cats in your home, I recommend this gate – it’s tall, and has expanders on the side so that it can fit a door/hallway that is up to 36.5″ wide.  It also has an inner gate that makes it easy to walk through without taking the whole thing down.

Baby Gate with Walk-Through (Regalo)
Baby Gate with Walk-Through (Regalo) Image

Since many cats are able to jump over the tall baby gate (see Tall Baby Gate product), I recommend stacking this shorter baby gate on top of the tall baby gate.  If you turn it upside down, you can line up the walk-through doors so that you can open them at the same time and step through them without having to remove the top (or both gates).

Cleaning Supplies
Anti-Icky Poo Unscented Urine Remover - Pint (Mister Max)
Anti-Icky Poo Unscented Urine Remover - Pint (Mister Max) Image

This is my recommended urine-remover.  It’s enzyme-based, and at one point claimed to be 30 times stronger than Nature’s Miracle.  My clients have had great results with it.

Anti-Icky Poo Unscented Urine Remover - Gallon (Mister Max)
Anti-Icky Poo Unscented Urine Remover - Gallon (Mister Max) Image

P-Bath Urine Pre-Treatment - Quart (Mister Max) Image

Use this to pre-treat urine stains; it neutralizes soap and detergent residue in soft surfaces that can kill beneficial enzymes in urine removers.

Clicker Training
Clicker Training for Clever Cats (Martina Braun)
Clicker Training for Clever Cats (Martina Braun) Image

This is my go-to book for clicker-training; it has lots of photos that aid in the process, and has an entire section on behavior modification.

Getting Started: Clicker Training for Cats (Karen Pryor)
Getting Started: Clicker Training for Cats (Karen Pryor) Image

Karen Pryor is the clicker-training guru, and this is an excellent resource.  No photos, but excellent information.

Clik Stik Clicker with Telescoping Target
Clik Stik Clicker with Telescoping Target Image

Karen Pryor’s “Clik Stik” has a telescoping target on it which means there’s less juggling with clicker and treats and a target if you’re using one.  Very convenient.

Pet Training Clicker with Wrist Strap (2-Pack)
Pet Training Clicker with Wrist Strap (2-Pack) Image

These are simple clickers, a bit quieter than the classic “box” style clickers (good for not startling cats with the sound).  Also comes with wrist straps which are very helpful!

Kittles Cat Treats 3-Pack (Wellness)
Kittles Cat Treats 3-Pack (Wellness) Image

These are the cat treats I use for clicker-training my cats.  They are small and are under 2 calories each!

Churu Lickable Puree Cat Treats 3-Pack (12 Tubes) (Inaba)
Churu Lickable Puree Cat Treats 3-Pack (12 Tubes) (Inaba) Image

These are awesome cat treats which can also be used during clicker-training; just a lick will do!  These are also great for giving medications or an any-time treat. This link is for 3 packages of 4 meat-tubes each (12 altogether).

Litterbox Items
Pretty Litter Cat Litter
Pretty Litter Cat Litter Image

This is a fine-grained sandy cat litter that CHANGES COLOR based on your cat’s urine!  It now is also clumping, a big improvement.  I recommend this litter for clients who have kitties with a history of urinary infections/issues; the litter can detect changes in pH and blood.  Use code AFF10 for 10% off!

Meal Time and Drinking Options
Catit Senses 2.0 Digger
Catit Senses 2.0 Digger Image

This is another food puzzle/slow feeder that you can use with kibble or treats. It’s a little more difficult than the tunnel feeders.

Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree
Catit Senses 2.0 Food Tree Image

This is an intermediate-difficulty level food puzzle great for treats and kibble.

Doc & Phoebe Indoor Hunting Cat Feeder
Doc & Phoebe Indoor Hunting Cat Feeder Image

Fill these three mice up with kibble, hide them around, and let your cat hunt for her food!

Interactive Food Puzzle (Ancaixin)
Interactive Food Puzzle (Ancaixin) Image

Check this one out!  It’s a bit more difficult; the top spins and food falls out into a food maze.  Good for more experienced/food-motivated foragers.

LickiMat Slow Feeder For Wet Food
LickiMat Slow Feeder For Wet Food Image

I LOVE LickiMats!  These are soft mats that you can smear any kind of wet/liquid food on so that your kitty has to work a bit to eat.  It slows down feeding, so no more scarf and barf!  This is just a single blue grid mat.

LickiMat Slow Feeder for Wet Food (2-Pack)
LickiMat Slow Feeder for Wet Food (2-Pack) Image

I LOVE LickiMats!  These are soft mats that you can smear any kind of wet/liquid food on so that your kitty has to work a bit to eat.  It slows down feeding, so no more scarf and barf!  This is the two-pack with the green and orange mats.

Northmate Slow Feed Bowl (The Company of Animals)
Northmate Slow Feed Bowl (The Company of Animals) Image

This is a feeder that I use in my home and it definitely cuts down on the “scarf and barf” when it comes to kibble!

Pet Activity Center and Feeder (AmazonBasics)
Pet Activity Center and Feeder (AmazonBasics) Image

Even Amazon knows how important foraging puzzles are for pets! This one has little cups to push aside for food/treats, as well as a large section to put food for slow-feeding.

Tiger Diner Ceramic Cat Feeder (SmartCat)
Tiger Diner Ceramic Cat Feeder (SmartCat) Image

This is a ceramic slow-feeder if you’re concerned about plastic (which can sometimes promote chin acne on cats). Available in black or white.

Trixie 5-in-1 Activity Center
Trixie 5-in-1 Activity Center Image

This is my FAVORITE food puzzle!  This is great for both dry treats/kibble, and you can even put wet food in the square grids.  You can make it easier or harder depending on where you put the food.  Great for beginners and expert foragers alike!

Trixie Tunnel Feeder
Trixie Tunnel Feeder Image

This is a fairly easy food puzzle/slow feeder but it gets the job done – cats have to reach in to get the goodies.

SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder
SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder Image

This feeder is a must if you need to keep your cats’ meals separate for any reason.  Perfect for cats who are getting different-sized portions, medications or supplements in their food, or if you just want to prevent other cats or pets from eating one pet’s meals.  Works with the microchip that your cat was tagged with, or comes with a collar tag that will work if your cat isn’t chipped.

SureFeed Rear Cover
SureFeed Rear Cover Image

This is a cover that prevents other cats from sneaking around the back and stealing food while the feeder is open for the cat who is eating out of the bowl.

Automatic Cat Feeder with Ice Packs - Double Unit (WOpet)
Automatic Cat Feeder with Ice Packs - Double Unit (WOpet) Image

This is an inexpensive pair of automatic feeders that comes with ice packs, so it’s suitable for both wet and dry food.  You can put a bell on the top that will sound when the lid opens to teach your cat when the meal is available. Great for kitties who need to be fed when you are at work!

Automatic Cat Feeder with Ice Pack - Single Unit (WOpet)
Automatic Cat Feeder with Ice Pack - Single Unit (WOpet) Image

This is an inexpensive single feeder that comes with an ice pack. Great for a single kitty who needs to be fed while you’re not home.  Give it a try!  The photo features a blue and white feeder, but the description says “arbitrary” color, so I’m not sure what color feeder you’ll receive.

Cat Mate C300 Automatic 3-Meal Feeder
Cat Mate C300 Automatic 3-Meal Feeder Image

This feeder can be set to feed three meals and also comes with an ice pack, so it’s suitable for wet food.  The bowl is dishwasher safe too, for those of you who are concerned about chin acne.

A36 Automatic Feeder (HoneyGuaridan)
A36 Automatic Feeder (HoneyGuaridan) Image

This automatic feeder comes with very good reviews on Amazon.  Comes with a stainless steel bowl and can feed VERY small portions of kibble (1/16 cup) at a time, up to 6 meals per day if your cat requires frequent feeding intervals.

MiauStore Ceramic Cat Water Fountain
MiauStore Ceramic Cat Water Fountain Image

Your cat will love this fountain!  To be completely transparent, the company sent me a fountain for my cats to try, and they really enjoy using it.  It’s quiet and clean.  It’s pretty, too!  You can tell it’s hand-made, but it’s dishwasher safe and even has a cat-grass “add on” cup if you want it.  Also available is a motion sensor switch so it only turns on when your cat approaches, a silicone mat, matching food bowls, and extended 10-year warranty.  This link will take you to the US MiauStore.com website.

Other Enrichment Opportunities
KittiKrack Silvervine Powder (Twin Critters)
KittiKrack Silvervine Powder (Twin Critters) Image

If your cat doesn’t react to catnip (or even if she does), give silvervine a try!  Sprinkle this on toys (just a tiny pinch will do – a little goes a long way) and watch your cat go wild.

Hide and Sneak Cat Tunnel (Dezi & Roo)
Hide and Sneak Cat Tunnel (Dezi & Roo) Image

My cats love these, and they are so durable!  They retain scent and are great for both lounging and playing.

Vesper Cat Furniture Line
Vesper Cat Furniture Line Image

Check out this line of cat trees, scratchers, cubbies, and perches from Catit!  The Vesper line is sleek and stylish, with removable pads for easy washing.  I have a Vesper cat tree and my cats LOVE it!

Catnip Spray Rejuvenator (From the Field)
Catnip Spray Rejuvenator (From the Field) Image

Catnip spray is an easy and mess-free way to freshen up old toys, and can help with encouraging play for stress-relief.  Plus, this From the Field brand’s catnip is grown in Washington state!

Scratching
Rectangular Scratching Pad (Americat)
Rectangular Scratching Pad (Americat) Image

My cats LOVE these scratchers.  They are super heavy-duty, large, and will last a long time.  They’re also made in the USA.

Feliscratch - 9 Pipettes (Feliway)
Feliscratch - 9 Pipettes (Feliway) Image

I have not used this product but it is formulated to redirect your cat to use her scratching post instead of your furniture.  Just a few drops on your scratching post will draw her over to scratch and leave her own scent on it.
