You dress to impress on Easter, and so can your cat. Treat your fashionable feline to a new cat collar this season.

Red Dingo’s daisy cat collar combines style with safety. The daisy motif is perfect for the season, as this flower typically blooms in the spring. Headed outside with your cat now that the weather has warmed up? The fish-shaped buckle is designed to break away should the collar get snagged on a branch or other object while your cat is exploring the great outdoors with you.

4. OurPets Backyard Friends Bunny Cat Toy

Cats love to hunt, and the OurPets bunny cat toy makes a great prey. When batted, the small fuzzy toy makes a squeaking mouse sound. And if that doesn’t get your kitty playing, perhaps the catnip inside it will.

5. SmartCat Kitty’s Garden

Does your cat like to chomp on grass? Chances are, she does. We may not fully understand why cats eat grass, but the most common theory is that it aids in digestion and makes their tummies feel better.

Indulge your kitty by bringing the outdoors in with this cat garden. The decorative box comes with oats, rye, wheat and barley seeds that take less than a week to grow. It’ll feel like spring has sprung indoors!

6. Rubie’s Bunny Cat Costume

Is that the Easter bunny hopping around the house? Or is it your cat in a bunny costume?

If you have one of those special cats who enjoys (or doesn’t mind) being dressed up, this cat costume can make for some adorable photo opps. The one-piece outfit comes complete with pink sateen ears on the hood and a fuzzy cotton tail on the bottom. Your cat will be the best-looking bunny on the block!

Note: For your pet’s safety, always supervise her while she’s wearing a costume.

Filling your cat’s Easter basket with these fantastic cat gifts will definitely earn you some kudos from your feline friend. Plus, if you get a large enough basket, once all the goodies are out, your cat might get in and curl up for a cat nap.
