5 Cat Products We Can’t Live Without

Covering Five Of Our Favorite Cat Products That Will Change Your Life

There are so many different cat products on the market today, it can be a little overwhelming. Too many times have we purchased a new cat toy or cat bed only to find that our cat is not at all interested. Rather than spending your hard earned money on cat products that you and your cat don’t need, buy something that is mutually beneficial for you and your furry friend. This article will cover 5 of our personal favorite cat related products that we simply can’t live without.

The Litter Box

One of the most essential and taken for granted things cat owners absolutely need is the litter box. Litter boxes have become a staple in cat domestication to the point that most cats inherently know to use them. This simple concept of a box filled with litter/sand has evolved considerably over the past 20 years. Litter boxes now come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, styles, and even self cleaning.

The Litter Genie

The biggest downside to having a litter box in the house is the nasty odor of pee and poop. However, there is a convenient and simple solution. The Litter Genie! The Litter Genie is a medium sized container that truly revolutionizes the cat waste management system. You dispose of cat waste through the top portion, there is a retractable seal in the middle, and the bottom compartment stores all of the waste. This works similar to a self-contained diaper pail that traps in all of the unwanted odors.

The Cat Tree

Cats are very playful by nature. They also love to climb things and sit in high places. Because of these reasons, we highly recommend investing in a cat tree. The cat tree (also referred to as a cat tower, cat stand, and cat condo) is an artificial structure made of a wood frame and covered in carpet like material. It is designed for cats to relax, play, and sleep on. Cat trees come in a wide variety of styles and can have multiple tiers/levels.

Most cat trees also have small enclosures attached which give your cat a place to hide and/or sleep. Additionally, most cat trees also come with scratching posts built into the poles and/or legs of the structure itself.

The Pet Camera

Within the past ten years, cameras have popped up nearly everywhere. They are used at grocery/retail stores, in our cars, for home security, and even in flying drones. So, why not use them for our pets? Pet cams are a great way to keep an eye on your cat even when you’re not home. These small stationary cameras sync up to your smartphone and provide you with a live feed no matter where you are.

This handy gadget gives us some insight into how our cats behave and what they do when nobody’s around. For more information about the best pet cameras on the market, check out

The Water Fountain

As most cat owners will tell you, cats are notorious for not drinking enough water. The cat water fountain changes this. According to researchers at, cats prefer to drink from a running water source as opposed to stagnant water. This is because it feels more natural to them. A cat water fountain is easy to use, simple to disassemble/clean, uses little electricity, and usually comes with built-in replaceable filters.

These fountains are great for cat owners that aren’t home very often or that have multiple cats. To learn more about the best cat water fountains on the market, check out
