CATS ARE BEAUTIFUL, interesting, weird creatures. If you’re lucky enough to be loved by one, it’s your God-given responsibility to give them a comfortable and fun home. We wrote about the supplies you should get if you recently bought a pet but once you have that pet situated at home, you’ll want to create a healthy, welcoming space for them. Cats require a specific type of environment to play, scratch, and relax.


Here are our favorite products based on months of testing with our own cats. Even if our pets rejected a particular product, we still examined overall construction, design, and value to determine whether it may be of use to other kitties. Felines can be finicky, which unfortunately means you may have to go through a few options to find the right fit.


We won’t hold it against you if you’re more of a dog person; we have a guide to supplies and accessories for dogs too.
