WHY TRUST CATTIME?

Since 2008, CatTime has provided millions of cat owners with all the information they need to keep their pets happy and healthy. Our experts know exactly what it takes to raise our furry friends and our goal is to help all owners, new or experienced, care for their cats with all the right food, toys, equipment, and accessories.

The Best Cat Litter Houses

Cats are wonderful pets. On the one hand, they're fun to play with and have tons of personality. On the other, they're usually independent. The only drawback? Litter boxes. They're ugly, stinky, and take up space you could use for more important furniture or storage pieces. That's why we turn to cat litter houses. They provide you with a convenient place to put your kitty's litter boxes while covering up the smell and look. While searching for the right litter houses, we wanted to make sure we gave special attention to a few key details. Those include the size of each box, how well they can hold in odors, and how easy they are to assemble. For example, the Pawland litter house is effortless to put together, and it does a fantastic job of covering up smells. However, it isn't as large as the Best Choice large litter enclosure, which is probably the only option that can fit the largest cat breeds. Meanwhile, neither of them has the added cat scratcher that makes the Good Life USA house so awesome.

The Best Crystal Cat Litter

Cleaning up kitty litter is one of the less glamourous inevitabilities of owning a cat, but every cat owner has to do it. While it's not everyone's favorite chore, it doesn't have to be that bad - or stinky. These days, many cat owners are switching from clay litter to crystal litter, because it effectively absorbs liquids and smells. It also keeps litter boxes dust-free, so those of you with allergies can breathe as you please. We scoured the market to find the best crystal cat litters on the market. In order to find the best crystal cat litters, we asked ourselves three questions: Is it easy to keep clean? Does it cover up any bad smells? Will it last a long time? With these questions in mind, the scoop-free cat litter from PetSafe stood out as our favorite. It has a strong odor control that covers up even the strongest of smells and is low-tracking, so your cat won't bring the mess outside of its box. However, if your top priority is a cat litter that can last, then consider the crystal litter from Fresh Step. Not only does it control the odor for up to 30 days, but it's soft enough for even the most sensitive of felines. Read on below to find the rest of our picks and why we think they stand out among the rest.

The Best Cat Slow Feeders

If your cat tends to inhale their food, a slow feeder is what you need. Slow feed bowls feature maze-like protrusions inside the bowl that your cat must navigate to reach their food, causing them to eat more slowly. Eating slower can help to prevent bloat and other digestive issues while also lowering the risk of choking. Whether you need a bowl for dry or wet food, there's an option out there to benefit your furry friend. We first asked ourselves a few questions to find the best cat slow feeder. Is this feeder suitable for wet food as well as dry? How easy is it to clean? What is the level of difficulty of the design? Our number one choice was the Hyper Pet IQ Treat Mat which works great for both dry and wet food, is dishwasher safe, and features a medium level of difficulty ensuring your cat slows down when eating. If you're looking for a bowl with a lower level of difficulty, we suggest the Super Design Slow Feeder. This bowl is designed with just a few raised columns inside to slow eating, can be used with dry or wet food, and is a breeze to clean.

The Best Cat Furniture for Your Home

Cat furniture can make a world of difference when it comes to your furry pal's overall well-being and happiness. You'll need something with at least one claw-friendly surface, and you should also pick furniture that's made to last (not something made from flimsy materials). Of course, choosing the right cat furniture really all comes down to your cat's personality, activity level, and personal preferences. To help you select the right product for your precious pet, we've rounded up a list of our favorite pieces of furniture here.

The Best Cat Fountains

Cats weren't always the well-groomed domesticated furballs that we love today. Their wild ancestors were attracted to running water since it was a sign the water was fresh and safe to drink. Your cat is no different. Cats are attracted to running water, making a water fountain a great way to ensure your cat is properly hydrated. A water fountain is the perfect way to have constant running water available to your cat, whether you're around or not. We rounded up some of the best cat fountains out there just for you. Read on to find the fountain for you and your furry friend.

The Best Natural Cat Food

We love our cats more than anything, which means we want them to stay happy and healthy for as long as possible. That means keeping their teeth strong, their coats shiny, and their eyes bright. To do that, it's important to choose the right food. There's a lot that goes into it, but the most important part of finding the right one is to keep it as close to their natural diet as possible. Having the right nutrition will go far in keeping your feline friend full of energy and ready for their long naps and hours of play. Your cat is important to us, too, which is why we've created this list of the best natural cat foods to help you keep them feisty for years to come.

The Best Cat Tents

As much as cats like to play, they also want to sleep. In fact, they adore sleeping. Yes, cats can somehow manage to curl up just about anywhere, but that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate being spoiled with their own personal cat tent. It's like a home within a home. After all, they love their privacy, so it’s only fitting that they should have a personal, comfy nook they can lounge in for hours while they recharge their batteries. So, with our cat’s best interest in mind, we did some research. While choosing which cat tents would make the cut, we focused on some key details. First and foremost, safety is the top priority. We wouldn't want to put any of our or your furry friends at risk. Next, we checked out the style and ease of use. For example, the Outback Jack tent pops open quickly and easily, and it looks pretty cool. However, it doesn't fit nicely inside the way the Glitterstar or the Best Pet Supplies can. Each one has its pros and cons, so if you'd like to explore them further, check out this list of the best cat tents.

The Best Cat Strollers

Cat owners are in a tough spot when it comes to the indoor/outdoor debate. On one hand, cats have an instinct to want to explore the great outdoors. On the other, the outside world poses many dangers to our feline friends we'd like to shield them from. One way to give you and your cat the best of both worlds is a cat stroller. Cat strollers are exactly what they sound like. Just like you'd walk your baby around in a stroller to let them check out the outside world, you can now do with your cat in a cat stroller. There are plenty of cat strollers available these days, and features and styles run the gamut. To help you find the right one for you, check out our list of the best cat strollers in the business.
