National Cat Day was started in 2005 to raise awareness of homeless cats and encourage adoption (more on that in a moment). In celebration of cat day, we’ve compiled a list of great gifts for felines and their parents.

Cat advocate Jackson Galaxy’s products focus on your cat’s well-being; find everything from holistic solutions for behavioral and territorial issues to cleaners, organic catnip and enrichment toys. We love the Major Mojo Cat Kickers, available in two sizes, stuffed tight with organic catnip. They’ll put your cat on cloud nine.

Speaking of the nip, you’ll find more high-quality selections courtesy the Shady Cat Social Club, which offers a variety of premium organic catnip as well as Silvervine powder, ground from an Asian fruit and considered to be more potent than catnip. The Superb Sampler comes with three varieties of catnip and a tin of Silvervine.

Make sure your fur baby has a dependable collar, then punch it up with an adorable tag that’s full of attitude. All of DIPHDA‘s products —including stones—are ethically sourced, sustainable and vegan-friendly. Since DIPHDA also carries products for humans, you can create a matching jewelry set!

Through October, DIPHDA is donating 10 percent of profits from its LOVE collection of collars and leashes, as well as from its Rose Quartz Sliders, to the Young Survival Coalition, which benefits young people diagnosed with breast cancer.

Gift your favorite feline some glam with a tag from REBEL DAWG—it’s not just for pooches anymore. Find selections in many fun categories, including Pop Art, Gaming, Urban Cowboy (or girl) and Christmas. There’s such an abundance of cool tags, you may want to swap them out throughout the year.

The World Wildlife Fund just released its holiday gifts catalog, and it is fabulous! In addition to the traditional T-shirts and stuffed animals are items for the home, kitchen and apparel that will keep you cozy, such as lounge pants and slippers. What better way to support conservation of one of our most precious resources—animals—than with these thoughtful gifts?

Support another great cause when you purchase a gift from the Best Friends Animal Society. Committed to making all animal shelters no-kill by 2025, there’s no greater resource to learn about the state of animal welfare today, to find out where to adopt near you or learn more about how you can make a difference in an animal’s life.
