6 Great Holiday Gifts for Lazy Cats

December 1, 2018

With the holidays approaching , many people are picking out gifts for their loved ones. Kitties are usually very frisky when they are young, but they tend to slow down as they age. Actually, Fluffy gets, well, a bit lazy as she grows older. Read on as a local Roanoke, VA vet lists some gifts you can make for an unmotivated kitty.


We don’t have to guess at how your furry buddy spends most of her time: sleeping. Kitties can sleep up to 20 hours a day, though most of them clock around a measly 12-14 hours. Beds make a great gift for Fluffy! Don’t worry if your feline buddy already has a few beds. As far as cats are concerned, you simply can’t have too many napping spots! (Disclaimer: we can’t guarantee that your pet won’t ignore her new bed and sleep on a pizza box or armchair instead. With cats, you never really know.)

More Beds

You probably don’t want to go overboard buying multiple beds for Fluffy. Why not make some? Turn a hatbox, hard-shell suitcase, or wicker basket into a comfy napping spot for your drowsy furball simply by adding soft pillows or blankets. You can coat it with paint or varnish to make it look nice.


Who says kitties have expensive taste? Fluffy may be thrilled to find herself with a box to jump into when she wants to relax after a long day of doing absolutely nothing.

Window Seat

Birdwatching is very popular with lazy cats. After all, it takes very little effort! Make your furry buddy a comfy window seat, so she can relax and spy on local wildlife.

Pet Tent

Lazy cats are always looking for new spots to rest in. You can make your feline friend a pet tent or tipi in just a few minutes. All you need are an old tee shirt and wire hangars.

Cat Grass Mat

We recommend that cats stay indoors, as they are much safer as inside pets. However, you can give Fluffy a taste of nature. Plant some wheat grass seeds in a shallow storage tote. When they’re grown, your furball will have her own little lawn to fall asleep on!
