This Valentine’s Day, remember to show appreciation for everyone you love, and everyone who brings a smile to your face. That includes your cats!
How do you show your cats you love them? Maybe you scratch them in that perfect spot, or bring them their favorite treats.
This Valentine’s Day, give your cats the gift of love… and maybe one of these 10 great kitty Valentine’s Day gifts:
1. Heart-shaped box from Walmart
Cats can’t eat chocolates, so ditch the choco and get your cats some empty boxes. Heart-shaped ones, of course!
Remind your cats that you love them even when you’re gone by leaving some music playing for them. Not just any music, either - the kitty ballads from Music For Cats is created scientifically to be appealing for cats. Science never sounded so good.

If your cat is already a fan of catnip, it’s time to try something new. For variety, give your cat some valerian root instead, which acts in much the same way as catnip. Better yet, just get both and prepare some rags to wipe all the drool off your floor.
4. Furry cat tunnel from Amazon
Brr it’s cold outside. Your cats can warm up in this super fluffy, super pink kitty tunnel. They’ll have a blast ducking in and and out of the tunnel, and you’ll love watching them disappear and reappear.

5. Heart and paw-shaped cookie cutter from Etsy
Okay okay, this one seems like it’s more for you than your cat. But who says cookies are just for people? Try your hand at any of these cat cookie recipes that your cats are sure to love.

6. Cat-friendly plants from Sprout People
You probably know that some plants are dangerous to cats. Some other plants, though, are loved by cats for their smell or taste. If you have a green thumb and a garden, make it cat-friendly by planting some of these kitty favorites.

7. Heart food bowl from Amazon
You might be tempted to get your cat a heart-shaped bowl for Valentine’s Day, but cats actually prefer wider bowls because of their whiskers. That doesn’t mean you can’t put a little love on your cat’s bowl anyway, with this cute (and easy to clean) bowl.

8. Awkward Family Pet Photos from Awkward Books
Celebrate the love you have for your cats by seeing the awkward ways other people love their pets. Of course you’ll want to recreate them with your cats.

When you can’t cuddle with your cat, this pillow will do it for you. Your cats can take comfort in the soft pillow, which simulates the sound and feel of a heartbeat. Of course, nothing beats the real thing.

10. Sponsor a cat
Your cats are not the only ones who need love. Spread your love to kitties who need it, by donating cat supplies or money to your local shelter, or by sponsoring a cat. Many rescue organizations have sponsorship programs. Here are a few to get you started.
