Our Favorite Things

At Bitty Kitty, we see a lot of kittens and, as consummate cat lovers, we have our fair share of resident cats. This has given us plenty of opportunities to test what’s on the cat market. The items below come personally recommended by Bitty Kitty foster caregivers and volunteers. Make your furry friends (and their owners) very merry this Christmas!



Our favorite cat toys

  1. All the Yeowww! toys (starting at $3.99) – If you’ve never had a Yeowww catnip product, you might raise an eyebrow at the fan fervor, but once you’ve seen a cat with one, you know. There’s nothing better out there!
  2. Cat Dancer ($1.99) – You’ll be mad you didn’t invent it but your cats will love you for buying it! Sure, it’s just a wire with a big of cardboard on the end but it’s also hours of magical entertainment.

  7. GoCat Da Bird ($8.95) – It’s like catching the real thing but much kinder to our avian friends.

  9. PURRfect Cat Toys Leather Bouncer Toy ($7.19) – The combination of fluffy “mouse” and leather tassels makes this highly desirable.

  10. Hartz Kitty Frenzy Mice ($6.06) – They’re mice, you’ve got a cat, ‘nough said.
  11. Endless Possibilities Boinks Kitty Flicks ($9.99) – Sit on the couch and sproing these boinks all over. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a cat who fetches them back to you.

  13. CAT DANCER Cat Charmer Safe Wand Teaser ($3.50) – Soft and safe yet highly appealing.




Cat beds and scratchers we love

  1. FYLLEN Laundry basket ($9.99) – No, this isn’t to hold all your cat laundry. Well, it could be, but cats love to play in it, too!
  2. Silicone Grooming Brush ($9.99)- This soft brush gives a lovely massage while pulling out extra fur. Liked even by cats who don’t enjoy brushing.
  3. KONG Naturals Cat Scratcher ($7.99) – This won’t last forever but it’s pretty fun, especially for the younger cats. The hole underneath makes a great hideout.

  4. SmartCat Pioneer Pet Ultimate Scratching Post ($47.85) This one WILL last forever. Terrifically sturdy and tall enough for larger cats to get a good upright stretch. There’s an add-on platform for the top to make it a good sitting spot, too.

  5. Fluffy Cat Bed Plush Donut Cuddler (starting at $26.99) – A definite favorite, especially for winter. All ages of feline love to sink into these squishy and warm beds. Multiple sizes available in case you need to accommodate multiple cats.

  6. Furminator (starting at $12.12) – Find the right type for your cat’s hair and give them the grooming of a lifetime. Helps clean out knots, matts and TONS of extra hair.
  7. K&H Thermo-Kitty Cuddle Up Heated Pet Bed ($28.80) – Keep your cat warm in this comfy heated bed.

  8. Aspen Pet Self Warming Beds ($25) – Don’t have access to an outlet? These are “self-warming” and plenty cozy.

  9. K&H Pet Products Thermo-Kitty Mat Heated Pet Bed ($31.99) – If your cat already has a favorite bed or blanket, you can add this heated pad to it for some winter warmth.
  10. PetFusion Ultimate Cat Scratcher Lounge ($49.95) – Fun for horizontal scratchers (did you know some cats prefer one direction over the other?), fun to lounge on, super fun to hide in. An added bonus, it’s got a fun, modern look that doesn’t scream I HAVE CATS quite as loudly as other scratchers.

  11. Mainstays Extra Plush Lightweight Sherpa Throw Blanket (starts at $8.88) – Cats feel these and want to make all the biscuits.

  12. Micho Portable Cat Travel Shoulder Bag ($19.99) – No hard plastic travel boxes for your cat, let them travel in plushy comfort.
