Books
Beyond Squeaky Toys

By Nicole Nicassio-Hiskey and Cinthia Alia Mitchell. I love this book for its simple ideas for enriching your cat’s (or dog’s!) daily lives.  Covers everything you need to know about enrichment!

Brain Games for Cats (Claire Arrowsmith)

This book has wonderful activities for your cats, including things they can do themselves, or with you and your family (you can even use the clicker with some activities, but you don’t have to). A great way to get your kids involved with your cats’ enrichment!

Cat vs. Cat: Keeping Peace When You Have More Than One Cat (Pam Johnson-Bennett)

If you’re having inter-cat relationship problems, check out this book.  Practical advice for a peaceful home.

Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!) (Jackson Galaxy & Kate Benjamin)

This is a fantastic book all about creating cat-friendly environments with an emphasis on vertical space.  Includes where to buy things and plans!

Catify to Satisfy: Simple Solutions for Creating a Cat-Friendly Home (Jackson Galaxy & Kate Benjamin)

This is the follow-up to “Catification” with more great ideas for enhancing your cat’s living space.

Total Cat Mojo (Jackson Galaxy and Mikel Delgado)

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!

Calming Aids
Calming Collar for Cats (Fedciory)

This calming collar works with the aid of pheromones and lavender/chamomile.  Fits all sizes of cats and lasts for four weeks.  This is the highest-rated calming collar on Amazon within its price range.

Calmkeen Calming Supplement (75 mg, 60 Capsules)

Calmkeen is the same product as Zylkene, but half the price.  Just sprinkle the contents of one capsule in wet food each day.

Feliway Classic 30-Day Diffuser Refill

30-day refill for Feliway diffusers; covers 700 square feet.

Feliway Classic 30-Day Starter Kit

This comes with a diffuser and one 30-day supply of Feliway. This covers 700 square feet of space. Feliway Classic is the synthetic version of a feline facial pheromone that can provide a sense of familiarity and security, and reduce the urge to mark with urine or scratching.

30-Day refill for the Feliway MultiCat diffuser; covers 700 square feet.

Feliway MultiCat 30-Day Starter Kit

Starter kit includes a diffuser and a 30-day supply of Feliway MultiCat formula; covers 700 square feet. This can help restore harmony between cats in a multi-cat household.

iCalmCat Music for Cat Noise Phobias (SD Card for iCalmCat Speaker)

While this is not necessarily a calming aid, this SD chip works with the iCalmCat Speaker to help desensitize cats to noises. You can pair sounds with treats/play to create positive associations with noises your cat may be scared of; music is intermixed with household and outdoor sounds.

iCalmCat Portable Speaker with Calming Music

This is a portable speaker that plays calming music clinically tested and proven to reduce anxiety. There are also additional SD cards (sold separately) that work with this unit that play more stimulating music for enrichment, and various noises to help desensitize cats with noise phobias.

Music For Cats

Music designed specifically for cats, and scientifically proven to provide enjoyable environmental enrichment for kitties. You can purchase both digital downloads or CDs of music at this website’s online shop.

Solliquin Calming Chews (Cats Over 8 Lbs)

Solliquin is a safe, natural, and scientifically proven effective calming supplement.  These are chewy treats for cats over 8 lbs (see other listing for link to treats for cats under 8 lbs).

Solliquin Calming Chews (Cats Under 8 Lbs)

Solliquin is a safe, natural, and scientifically proven effective calming supplement.  These are chewy treats for cats under 8 lbs (see other listing for link to treats for cats over 8 lbs).

Zylkene Calming Supplement (75 mg, 120 capsules)

Zylkene is a safe, natural, and scientifically proven effective calming supplement.  Choose the 75 mg capsules for cats; just open a capsule and sprinkle/mix into wet food or something yummy.  This link is for the 120-capsule bottle, good for 4 months.

Zylkene Calming Supplement (75 mg, 30 capsules)

Cat Toys
Butterfly By Spinner Toy (PetZone)

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)

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

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

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 Wand Toy with Feather Attachment

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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
Automatic Night Lights - 2 Pack (Energizer)

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

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)

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)

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)

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)

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.

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

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

P-Bath Urine Pre-Treatment - Gallon (Mister Max)

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)

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)

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

Clik Stik Clicker with Telescoping Target

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)

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)

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)

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

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

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

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

Doc & Phoebe Indoor Hunting Cat Feeder

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

Interactive Food Puzzle (Ancaixin)

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

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)

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)

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)

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)

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

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

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

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

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)

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)

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

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)

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.

Stainless Steel Raindrop Fountain

A good basic fountain that has a couple of different places from which to drink. I took the top part off and my cats drank right from the bubbler!

Stainless Steel Top Water Fountain

While the base of this fountain is plastic, the top is stainless steel. This unit is easy to clean, and the water level on the side makes keeping water fresh SO easy. Further, you can use the fountain with or without the flower on top if you find it too noisy, or if your cats prefer a more open surface from which to drink.

The Magic Feline Fountain

My cats LOVE this fountain! It’s plastic, but it’s so easy to clean. Also, you can remove the top spout if it’s too noisy for you, and your cats will drink out of the top bubbling pool. This is a very nice fountain from a great company!

Other Enrichment Opportunities
KittiKrack Silvervine Powder (Twin Critters)

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)

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

Vesper Cat Furniture Line

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!

Catit Senses 2.0 Corner Groomer

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.

Catnip Spray Rejuvenator (From the Field)

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!

Kitty Kot (Large)

Even though this is built for one cat, I have two large cats that have cuddled up together on this without a problem. And this platform won’t fall off the window – mine has held up without falling for about two years! Consider putting a fleece mat on top of the mesh platform for extra comfort.

Heated Thermo-Kitty Pet Bed

This is my cats’ favorite heated bed! They have the large oval design. It is SO soft, although I put a blanket over it for extra snuggles. When plugged in, it slightly warms until a cat gets on it, and then it warms further (but not too hot). Additionally, you can take the heating pad out of the bed to wash it.

iCalmCat Music for Cat Stimulation (SD Card for iCalmCat Speaker)

This SD card can be used with the iCalmCat speaker, and plays music and sounds for environmental enrichment. Designed specifically for kitties!

Scratching
Rectangular Scratching Pad (Americat)

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)

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.
