Cat ownership is a lot of trial and error, especially when it comes to buying products perfect for your cat. Almost every cat-related product I own is version 2.0, meaning I bought the first attempt (usually quickly and out of necessity, like “oh yeah, I have to clip their nails”), realized it wasn’t quite right, then had to go back and do some serious research to find the best product.

Now that I’m older and wiser, I know to trust the experts when searching for new things for my cats. Those wise cat mothers and cat fathers on Amazon who post pictures of their felines enjoying water fountains and tips about how to get your kitty to take to her new cat tree—they’re the ones who lend expert commentary and help us determine what’s been cat-approved.

We’ve collected 20 of the most popular cat products you can buy on Amazon to help you find the perfect treats to spoil your four-legged fur babes. My cats can attest to the greatness of some of these products, and the others all stood out as top must-haves among other cat loving Amazon shoppers (and we strongly recommend checking out some of the photos shoppers have shared in the reviews section for ultimate cuteness).

1. A bed that keeps your kitty cozy

Keep your cat cozy with natural insulation.

Reviews: 2,616
Average rating: 4.5 stars

Just like me, my cats want to sleep somewhere warm, cozy, and generally away from most humans. This self-warming cat bed is the ideal solution (for them, not me). The warming technology reflects your pet’s warmth, meaning it uses insulation—instead of electricity—to keep warm. The lightweight fabric means the bed can change locations easily, so you can set it up on couches, in prime sun spots, or near your own bed.

You already know we love heated beds for our puppers, but the Aspen Pet Self Warming Bed is a great choice for cats. It comes in three varieties perfect for cats of all tastes: an oval bed, a rectangular lounger, and a pillow.

2. A toy that makes bird chasing dreams come true

Your cat will become King of the Wild with this toy.

Reviews: 2,448
Average rating: 4.4 stars

Your indoor cat may spend her days dreaming of chasing birds instead of actually hunting them down, but this toy can put the power back in her paws. Technically it’s a couple of feathers glued to a string on a plastic stick...but it’s so much more than that too!

My cats lose their minds for this one—it’s the only toy they can both agree to love. The feathers stimulate the movement and visual of a real bird, triggering your cat’s hunting instinct, and the long plastic stick allows you to stand in place while whirling the bird attachment around, getting your cat jumping, running, and swatting. This is definitely a toy to whip out when you need to get your cats active, but be sure to store it after playtime if your cat will think those feathers are tasty.

3. A tunnel for endless hours of play

These tubes have endless hours of fun. We promise.

Reviews: 3,900
Average rating: 4.8 stars

The product description for this cat tunnel promises hours of amusement, and I think they mean for cats, but honestly it feels more true for humans. With three crinkle tunnels, a peep hole in the middle, and a bell toy on the end, this multi-functional toy can be barrels of fun for your cat.

Reviewers love the durability of this tunnel, noting that it’s well-made and not easily destroyed. It’s also a breeze to clean and store, which is especially helpful if you don’t want to be lulled to sleep each night by the sound of crinkling.

4. A scratcher that’s the purr-fect place to lounge

Is your cat a lounger or a scratcher?

Reviews: 6,607
Average rating: 4.8 stars

My sister literally put this cat scratcher lounge on her wedding registry. And honestly it was a great choice—her three cats love this scratcher, which doubles as a great nap spot. It’s large enough to accommodate a multi-cat household, but stylish enough that your houseguests don’t immediately identify it as a pet accessory.

The corrugated cardboard is perfect for feline nails, helping kitties clear out old claw sheaths and keep their current nails healthy. PetFusion uses a higher-quality, eco-friendly cardboard that is designed to last way longer than others—plus, it’s got catnip.

5. A tree for cats of all sizes

There are endless options for your cat to climb on this tree.

Reviews: 5,828
Average rating: 4.4 stars

This cat jungle has a feature for every type of cat: a hidey-hole for the anti-social; a top platform for the height lover; an unsupported bed for the adventurous; a dangling rope for the active; and a flat level for the chunkier.

Even though it has a lot of layers, reviewers note that this tree is easy to assemble and maintain. Though some features are better for smaller cats—like the hammock and top cylinder—larger cats get good use from it, too.

6. A grooming tool that gets rid of mattes

Pat Your Pet 2-Sided Pet Grooming Tool

This brush is here for the toughest combing jobs.

Reviews: 2,156
Average rating: 4.7 stars

We’ve all been there: you’re petting your cat, expecting to hit nothing but fluff, then you discover it—a matte. Or, if you’re my cat, 14 mattes (always right at the base of the tail, too). Even if you and your cat have all the patience in the world, her normal cat brush may not do the trick. This brush with dual-sided teeth is made for getting rid of those stubborn mattes without making you or your kitty uncomfortable.

Each rounded blade has razors on the inside curve, which is perfect for cutting mattes without touching your cat’s skin. The 9-blade side is ideal for stubborn spots, while the 17-bladed side is for routine grooming and deshedding.

7. A fountain your kitty will want to drink from

Because a fountain is way more interesting than a water dish.

Reviews: 4,531
Average rating: 4.0 stars

If your cat’s a diva (“guilty,” my cats both meow in unison beside me), they may find normal water too boring for their use. Good news—this cat fountain may be the answer. Cats love running water, so particularly picky drinkers love this fountain from Catit. It has three water speeds and continually pumps fresh water, plus its filters keep the water safe and yummy for your feline friend.

Reviewers note that this is a particularly good choice for pet parents whose cats love water faucets, whether drinking from them or swatting at them. The fountain itself is low-mess, but does require moderate maintenance. Make sure you change the filters every month and wash it frequently (like all plastic watering bowls, it will grow mold if you’re not careful).

8. A robot vacuum that actually picks up cat hair

This bot will take care of your cat cleaning woes.

Reviews: 2,021
Average rating: 4.2 stars

Writing this article now, I have cat hair on my hoodie, my keyboard, and my couch. I’ll stand up and walk along the cat-hair filled rug to grab a bottle of water, which will inevitably be covered in cat hair within the next 10 minutes. It’s a fact of life when you own a cat, but thankfully vacuum manufacturers are taking us into consideration when designing new devices. Specifically, we like the iRobot Roomba 980 for picking up cat hair and leaving at least one spot in the house free of pet hair (for now).

The 980 connects to your home’s WiFi, allowing you to control it with your smartphone from anywhere. So if you’ve had a long day at work and predict the last thing you’ll want to deal with is coating your socks in a new layer of cat hair, start the Roomba on your commute home and sparkly clean floors will greet you upon your return.

9. A mat that stops litter trails

Gorilla Grip Original Premium Durable Cat Litter Mat

Litter trails are no match for this mat.

Reviews: 2,426
Average rating: 4.4 stars

If there’s one thing I love even more than cat hair everywhere, it’s that comforting feeling of kitty litter between my toes. This mat is ideal for those of us who don’t particularly enjoy sweeping kitty litter from the floors every other day, as its mesh material catches each kernel when your cat exits her box. Deep grooves hold excess litter without catching your cat’s nails, plus it’s made from soft and comfortable materials, meaning your cats won’t actively avoid it like they do with mats made from tougher products.

It comes in several sizes, perfectly suited for one- or multi-cat households. The traction on the bottom of the mat is sturdy, so it won’t slide around while your cats walk (or run) on it.

Get the Gorilla Grip Original Premium Durable Cat Litter Mat for $16.79

10. Cat treats that clean teeth

Your cat's version of a toothbrush.

Reviews: 3,309
Average rating: 4.7 stars

A kitty reward that’s both delicious and vet-approved? Sign me up. My cats switched to Greenies about a year ago after our dentist recommended them to help prevent tartar buildup. We were initially worried they’d be turned off by treats that were actually good for them (the same way I am turned off by celery), but the opposite was true—they can’t get enough of these treats.

Meant to improve feline oral health, Greenies can improve breath and strengthen teeth. Cat owners find that they’re a good replacement for fattier treats, and while they’re slightly more expensive than others, the health benefits make them more than worth it.

11. A nail trimmer to clip claws without scratches

Cat claws are no match for these trimmers.

Reviews: 6,218
Average rating: 4.6 stars

My cats are polydactyl, so they have extra claws on each paw. This makes nail clipping more difficult for us, but not impossible with the right pair of clippers. This highly rated pair from Amazon is ideal for our cats—they’re larger than standard cat clippers, but feature a sturdier grip. The clippers are made from durable stainless steel, and there’s a small safety stop that prevents us from clipping too close to the ouchy-zone (the “medical” term for the part of the nail that holds nerves and blood vessels).

12. A popular smart pet camera

Furbo

Keep an eye on your kitty wherever you are.

Reviews: 2,864
Average rating: 4.1 stars

Welcome to the future. This pet camera from Furbo genuinely looks like something from 2001: A Space Odyssey. With a 180-degree camera, a built-in mic and speaker, a free app, and a treat tosser, this incredibly fun product allows you to throw your cat treats throughout the day, even when you’re not home. It’s even our favorite smart pet camera of 2019 because it does a better job overall.

Unlike other smart treat dispensers, the Furbo uses artificial intelligence (instead of motion sensors) to read your pet’s movements, then report back to you with updates. Our favorite part? The camera, obviously—the app allows you to see your pet in real time, take a picture, talk to them, and throw treats, which is a great way to distract them from clawing up the sofa.

13. A scooper that makes litter box cleaning less work

Get a scooper that actually gets the job done.

Reviews: 5,992
Average rating: 4.8 stars

This all-metal litter scoop is designed by cat lovers for cat lovers. It’s meant to make the scooping process less dreadful for humans. The scoop is slightly heavier than its plastic counterparts, but that weight—along with its ergonomic handle, which puts the center of gravity at your wrist—makes for a much easier scoop. Amazon reviewers love everything about this scooper, from its durability to the fact that it’s a breeze to clean up after your kitty.

14. A toy for scratching and swatting

Bergan Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy

This scratcher provides some extra entertainment.

Reviews: 7,778
Average rating: 4.5 stars

This is one of those incredible products that comes with a scratcher and a toy, so both you and your cat will stay entertained for hours: them because they’ll get to swat a ball, do a little scratching, then go back to swatting; and you because you’ll have the pure joy of watching your cat trying to decide if she’s in the mood to scratch or play (such a fun, awkward juggle to watch).

We love it because it’s one of those toys that can keep cats active and happy, but won’t end up under the couch or hidden in the closet. The ball can’t come off the track (unless your cat is incredibly strong) and the scratcher isn’t too painful to replace.

15. A tower for endless batting

With a non-slip bottom, this toy is both entertaining and safe.

Reviews: 4,494
Average rating: 4.5 stars

If your cat loves batting, this is the toy for her. With three layers of ball-batting action, the Tower of Tracks toy keeps cats engaged without having them run around the entire house (especially ideal if you have downstairs neighbors). The no-slip bottom keeps the tower in place while your cat goes to town on the plastic tracks.

Amazon reviewers love that. Though there is a large hole in the middle, it comes with a safety bar so curious kittens won’t get stuck. The balls themselves cannot be removed from the tracks, and cat paws can’t get stuck between them.

16. A litter box with a unique entryway

Iris Top Entry Cat Litter Box

The solution to seeing your cat do its business.

Reviews: 3,110
Average rating: 4.4 stars

Don’t enjoy watching your cat do her business every day? Well, she probably doesn’t love you staring, either. This top-entry litter box may be the best solution for you both. With a small point of entry from above, your cat has full freedom in the box itself to relieve herself. This may not be the best choice if you have multiple cats, but it is a great option if you have a dog and a cat and need to prevent your pooch from playing around in the litter.

It comes in two sizes, large and medium, and a number of colors to match any space. The box is also designed to reduce litter splatter—grooved dips on the lid catch small pieces, while the lid itself prevents your cat from happily jumping out of the open litter box and proudly spewing litter flecks around the room (is it just my cat that does this?).

17. A brush that cleans itself

Safari Cat Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush

A brush that cleans itself? Game changer.

Reviews: 1,265
Average rating: 4.6 stars

I’m a grown woman and I still enjoy when someone brushes my hair for me. Appease your furry friend and give her some pets with this slicker brush. Our cats are prone to hair mattes, so brushing is our favorite way to prevent them from forming. We keep this on our coffee table and brush at the same time every night to get into the routine.

The stainless steel pins are great for grooming, as they remove shedded fur and catch smaller hair mattes. Unlike other brushes, where you have to physically pull fur from the bristles, the pins retract from this brush, allowing you to easily wipe off and remove any fur.

18. A lightweight cat carrier for easy travel

Pet Magasin Luxury Soft-Sided Cat Carrier

Travel with your furry friend a little more easily.

Reviews: 1,946
Average rating: 4.4 stars

No cat wants to spend an extended period of time locked in a hard plastic prison. This plush carrier from Pet Magasin is a great choice for cats who enjoy a life of luxury (or those that are into plush surfaces). We’re big fans of pet carriers with soft-sides, partially because they’re more comfortable for our pets, but also because they store easy, transport well, and are (mostly) easy to clean.

This cat carrier is lightweight and comes with a shoulder strap. It’s TSA-approved if you need to fly with your feline, but just as effective when making trips to the vet.

19. A small stone that actually removes hair

This rock may not look like much, but it really gets the job done.

Reviews: 1,495
Average rating: 4.3 stars

Do you ever find yourself walking out the door to go to work, spotting a cat hair on your shoulder, picking it off, then somehow sprouting three more in the same spot having barely moved? Of course you have. And this one's for you.

The Fur-Zoff Pet Hair Remover may look like a microwaved moon rock, but it works—and it’ll make you feel far less wasteful than going through 10 sheets at a time on your lint roller. Perfect for couches, clothing, carpets, and even car seats, this stone is a must-have for the reluctantly hairy.

20. A food container to hold bulk purchases

Hold all your cat food and more with this storage system.

Reviews: 7,619
Average rating: 4.3 stars

This cat food container is a great investment if you buy in bulk (which is a necessity, especially for those of us with multiple cats). The tight locking lids prevent food from growing stale, and more importantly, prevent cats from knocking over and feasting. It comes as a two-container package, and we love how it’s pictured here with wet food on top and dry food on the bottom. If your cats are dry-food only, you could use the smaller container to keep the scooper stored separately from the food itself (or use it for treats).
