Pets are a part of the family, and as such, they should be treated well. That means giving them the best food, exercise, and toys possible.
But what about accessories? What are the best ones to buy for your furry friend?
Look no further – we’ve compiled a list of the top cat accessories out there! From scratching posts to litter trays, your kitty will love everything on this list.

#1 Catnip Toys
Catnip contains a cat-safe chemical that triggers positive reactions and feelings in their brains. It doesn't cause addiction, and a small percentage of cats don't react to catnip.
A toy with catnip is one of the best ways to help your cat relax. I hear what you've thought - what is so stressful in a domestic cat's life so that they need to relax? A full day of sunbathing, maybe? Jokes aside, toys with catnip help the cat relax and calm the anxiety. Your cat will be less nervous after a ten-minute session with a catnip toy.
Refillable catnip toys, such as refillable multi-textured mice, are practical and cost-effective.
#2 Scratch Post
A scratch post is a treat. It is a necessity if you want to keep the cat happy and your furniture intact. Scratching is a natural cat instinct and an essential activity for cats of all ages.
Also, if you have just brought a new cat to your home, providing a scratching post will help your new furry friend adjust easier and get used to the new environment.
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a scratching post. First of all, the post should be tall enough so the cat can reach it when it is fully stretched. Next, the post should be sturdy enough to withstand vigorous scratching and shedding. Additionally, posts with horizontal and vertical scratching surfaces are great because they ensure plenty of activity for the cat.
#3 Cat Brush Arch
Cats enjoy brushing, but the thing is, most owners don't always have time to brush their pets!
That is when brush arches come into the spotlight! In fact, a cat brush arch has more benefits than providing pleasure for your cat.
With regular brushing, a brush arch helps control shedding. It means less vacuuming and less pet hair lingering in the air! Also, your cat will love the self-grooming arch, which massages them at the same time.
#4 Stylish Litter Box
Having a litter box is a must, but it doesn't mean your cat toilets should be displayed for everyone to see it! There are so many stylish litter box options online, and some of them are really appealing to young and adult kittens.
You can find the ones to match the interior design of your rooms, a multi-purpose litter box, hidden litter boxes, etc. If you are limited with space and a true plant lover, you can even find the hidden litter box with a planter on top!

#5 Water Fountain
Cats get bored easily and often get dehydrated. Further, dehydration can cause severe health issues like bladder stones.
If you have noticed your cat drinking water from a faucet, a water fountain might be a great way to keep the cat engaged and committed to drinking water. You can choose between plastic and steel options. Plastic fountains are cheaper but get dirty sooner.
Here is another tip for you - separate the food and water bowl because some cats won't drink water if it is close to food!
The best cat accessories are the ones that keep your kitty happy and healthy.
Whether it’s a scratching post or a litter box, these items can help you maintain an excellent environment for your pet to live in when they come home from a long hard day of work. 🤣
Don’t forget to keep your kitty happy and healthy!
