Cicero can’t contain his excitement.

My cat Cicero had an absolute ball reviewing these items for this gift guide.

Temptations Treats for Cats

Cats go crazy for Temptations treats. They know the sound the bag makes and they come running. My Cicero loves the chicken flavored treats, well, he loves all of them, but I think this is his favorite. Other flavors include creamy dairy, shrimpy shrimp, tantalizing turkey, tempting tuna, seafood medley, savory salmon, hearty beef, and catnip.

PetSafe Self-Cleaning Litter Box

A dreaded task of a cat parent is cleaning the litter box. It’s part of the job, but that doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. PetSafe is our savior with the self-cleaning litter box. No poop scooping, ever. Sweet relief! A steel plated automatic rake moves all waste into a closed compartment. The litter dries out poop and absorbs urine to reduce odor. Disposable tray makes cleaning time super easy. Order new litter when needed and it’s delivered to your door.

Personalized Cat Food Bowls

How adorable are these personalized cat food bowls? These make the perfect gift for any cat parent. One has a cat face, the other a fish. Cicero loves them…or maybe he just loves that there is food in them. We’ll never know.


Grab some super cute photos of your cat and make a photobook of aborableness. Give as a gift to new cat parents with photos of the little kitty. Add some words of wisdom for a cute keepsake.


PrettyLitter monitors your cat’s health and let’s you know if your cat has an infection. PrettyLitter absorbs moisture to get rid of those nasty smells. Cats are little ninjas when it comes to health. It’s hard to tell if they’re doing okay. PrettyLitter changes color after urination if there is something wrong with your cat based on the pH levels. Plus, the PrettyLitter is lighter than traditional litter so you’re not breaking your back carrying it. Just select the number of cats, and the amount you need is delivered right to your door once a month. Easy peasy.


Cicero loves his PrettyPlease dry food. There are no artificial colors, preservatives or fillers. PrettyPlease provides the nutrients cats need plus probiotics and prebiotics for digestive health, and feline nutritionist selected ingredients to keep your cat healthy. Just like with PrettyLitter, choose the number of cats you have and a monthly supply is delivered to your door.
