Honeycat Cosmetics

In Ancient Egypt, it was believed that cats could make their female masters irresistible. At Honeycat, a line of bath, body and spa products, cats are considered a symbol of female strength, and all of their products playfully reflect this theme. There’s “Mixed Berry Trill Body Cream” (a trill is a cross between a meow and a purr – the sound Honeycats make when they’re feeling sassy!) There’s “You Gotta Be Kitten Me” super moisturizing pomegranate shower gel, or “Grooming Day” sweet potato pie scented bubble bath… well, you get the idea. All Honeycat products are made in the US with the finest ingredients, and never tested on animals. Each product is jam packed with good-for-your-skin ingredients. Visit the Honeycats website and get your purr on!

Litter Box Solutions

NVR Miss Litter Box

NVR_Miss_Litter_box

The NVR Miss Litter Box is everything a litter box should be. It’s roomy. It has a strategically positioned cat-friendly entrance that makes it easy even for senior cats to get in and out of the box. The clever design (a slight protrusion across from the entrance) provides a cue for cats to align themselves lengthwise, so you won’t have to worry about urine going outside the box at the low entrance.

The Litter-Lifter® range of cat litter scoops are the quickest and easiest solution to picking up waste. The No-Sift™, peaked blades lift out ONLY the waste, leaving clean litter in the box where it belongs. Litter-Lifters™ even pick up waste fragments and create virtually no dust because there is no need to shake the clean litter free – it falls through the specially designed triangular blades. Tapered scoop makes a strong scraper for heavier messes. Available in up to 14 colors both online and from many retailers.

    I tried using the code CONSCIOUSCAT at catpods.com and it said it was expired. Very disappointed as I was very eager to get a catpod for my kitty for Christmas. Made me question the company and cancel the purchase since the coupon code expired 5days after this article was published. Wasn’t sure it was legit.

      I’m so sorry you had a problem with the code, Natalie – I will follow up with Catpods and let you know as soon as I hear from them.

        Thank you Ingrid. I appreciate your help and placed my order. I’m hoping that my kitty will love her new catpod under the tree (and keep her out of the tree – hahaha).

    What a wonderful list of Christmas sources for cats and their loved ones! I can’t speak for all of these products but I do have a Yoga Cat Mat and these cats just love it. You can see my video of Mulberry Spot and B.W. Huckleberry practicing their form on their mat at the store website.

    Also, I love Bernadette’s art. She has so many very touching works and colorful adaptations as well. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
