10 Gifts For Cat Lovers Who Wear Their Feline Obsession Right On Their Sleeve
There are people who like cats, and then there are cat lovers. There is a difference, and if you have a kitty-obsessed family member or friend, then you know exactly what I mean. So, as the holiday season rolls in at full speed, you might be wracking your brain to find the perfect gift for the cat lover in your life. And by perfect, I do mean purrrrr-fect.
I don't mean to generalize, but I feel like it's pretty accurate to say that, for the most part, cat lovers talk about their cats a lot, they post lots of pictures of their cats on Instagram, they sleep with their cats curled up on their pillows, they are often covered in cat hair, they know all the latest cat memes, and, in the case of my best friend Syd, a cat lover to the extreme, they even make art about their cats. People who are obsessed with felines just like to be surrounded by all the cat energy they can muster out of the universe. These are all things to consider when shopping for a cat lover.
While it would be nice to present your favorite kitty connoisseur with a basket filled with teeny-weeny newborn kittens all wearing bows, it might not be the most practical thing in the world, you know? Instead, check out some of these cat-themed ideas to inspire your holiday shopping list.

A Date At A Cat Cafe On You
Cat cafes are a thing, in case you didn't know. If you live in the NYC area, the Brooklyn Cat Cafe is an awesome spot to go to, where you basically get to hang out with a bunch of adorable kitties for just $14 an hour (or $12, if you book ahead of time!).
This is an especially good gift for the cat lover in your life who doesn't have a kitty of their own at home — and, if they do want a little furry friend, many of the cats at these types of cafes are often up for adoption. Just sayin'.
A Stylish Lint Roller To Take On-The-Go
Perhaps this gift is a little cheeky, but honestly, as someone who grew up in a house full of furry friends, it is Necessary with a capital N.
Plus, this lint roller comes in tons of different colors and designs, so you're sure to find something for the feline-obsessed person in your life.
A Custom Cat Phone Case
Your favorite cat lover might just shed a tear (or 20) when they open this gift, it's that good.
This idea is simple, adorable, and the past illustrations from this Etsy seller look absolutely incredible, so you know the finished product is going to be amazing. Chances are, your cat-loving friend probably posts tons of pictures of their fur baby on social media, so it'll be easy to snag a photo on the DL and keep this present a surprise until you two exchange gifts.
Warm and Cozy Cat Slippers
I'm going to make an educated guess here and say that people who love cats also love to be cozy. But, also, I think everyone loves to be cozy, regardless of pet preferences, so you really can't go wrong with this gift.
These cat slippers are sure to make your loved one smile every time they slide them on, especially on those cold, dark, early mornings when they're feeding their own kitty.
