Devotion to cats is not a new phenomenon. The ancient Egyptians were so fond of their feline friends, some went as far as worshipping the cat-goddess Bast and mummifying their pet cats so that they could join their devoted owners in the afterlife.
Thousands of years later we’re still worshipping cats, though perhaps not to the same degree as the ancient Egyptians did. Cats make excellent pets because they’re fairly self-sufficient, intelligent and often very affectionate – it’s no surprise that the cat is such a popular pet, and there are over seven million of them in the UK alone.
If there’s a cat lover in your life and you’re looking for a great gift idea with a cat theme, here are a few products that make purr-fect gifts for cat lovers, all of which are available to buy online.
Cat Lovers Kit
The Cat Lovers Kit is a gift for the cat itself, as much as it is a gift for the owner! The kit contains an assortment of items that both cat and owner can enjoy, including a laser pointer, catnip, mouse toy, collar and bell.
The Cat Lovers Kit is presented in a neat little plastic pod, so all its contents can be kept neatly together when not in use.
Hairy Cat Soap
The Hairy Cat Soap is cat-shaped and made from pure mild soap, and it works in much the same way as normal soap. However, if you take it out of its packaging and don’t use it, after a few days it grows hair.
