I see a lot of new products each year. Between what I saw at Global Pet Expo in March, and the dozens of products that were sent to me over the course of the year, it’s probably safe to say that I’ve seen thousands of pet products in 2017. Allegra and Ruby have been busy helping me review many of them for you throughout the year. With so many products, it’s really hard to choose only 10 favorites, but with the help of my two product testers, we’ve come up with this list (presented in no particular order).

Nature’s Cat Litter Mats

Catio Spaces

Catio Spaces offers a variety of DIY catio plans that take the guesswork out of building a catio to save you time and money. Build one yourself or hire a carpenter to build it for you. The catio plans include a variety of designs for a window, deck, patio or yard to complement your home and suit your feline’s fancy. We shared a firsthand account of one woman who used a Catio Spaces plan to build a catio for her three cats. Click here to read Jessica’s account.

Sauder Cat Furniture

You may be familiar with the name Sauder for quality office furniture at affordable prices. Sauder has crossed over to the furry side with a line of beautifully designed cat furniture. The pieces were clearly designed by someone who understands cats, and blend purrfectly into different home decors – a win win for cats and humans. Sauder Cat Furniture is available from Amazon.

Meowfia Felted Wool Cat Cave

We believe every cat should have a felted wool cat cave, and Meowfia offers some gorgeous and well made models. Each cave is handmade from 100% Merino wool, a soft, lightweight natural fiber. The Meowfia Felted Wool Cat Cave is available from Amazon in light grey and asphalt/aquamarine.

This beautifully designed, easy to clean ceramic fountain provides an upper and lower drinking area, and the dual free-falling streams keep water tasting fresh, which encourages your cat to drink more. The Pagoda fountain is available in blue, red, taupe and white from Amazon with free shipping for prime members.

Assisi Loop

assisi-loop

We’ve featured the Assisi Loop multiple times this year, and I continue to be amazed at just how incredible this product is. The Assisi Loop, created by Assisi Animal Health, is a non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive device provides targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (tPEMF™). tPEMF, which was first studied in the 1970s and is FDA-cleared for use in humans, uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms to help relieve pain and swelling. This therapy can benefits cats with pain associated with arthritis, pancreatitis, wounds, or post-surgical swelling as well as many inflammatory conditions. For more information about how the Loop could help your cat, visit http://www.assisianimalhealth.com or contact Assisi Animal Health at info@assisianimalhealth.com, 866-830-7342.

Tabcat

tabcat-tracking-device

Tabcat is a tracking device for cats that uses radio frequency technology instead of the typical GPS systems, which can be heavy, and, due to monthly data costs, quite expensive. We liked this new and innovative option that will not only keep track of your cat, but can also be used as a training device. Read our full article about Tabcat.

PetFusion Premium Plus Quilted Pet Blanket

pet-blanket

I never thought I’d feature a blanket in our top 10 products, but this supersoft, cozy blanket has been a huge hit at our house. It is made from 100% polyester Micro Plush. The sides are quilted to keep the fill in place. The blanket is reversible, one side is a beautiful medium grey, the other side a lighter grey. The blanket is machine washable, and comes with a 12 month warranty. The blanket is available from Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.

Felted Heart Catnip Toys

felted-wool-catnip-hearts

These little felted heart catnip toys have become Ruby’s favorite toys. I find them all over the house in different spots every day, and she absolutely loves racing after them when I toss them for her. Since it’s rare for such a simple toy to be such a consistent favorite, I’ve included it in this list. They come in sets of 3 in vibrant colors and area available from Show Me a Little Sign’s Etsy shop.

Stay tuned for our announcement of our
