Your cat’s first birthday is a big milestone. They’re starting to evolve from an adorable clumsy kitten into a playful, mischievous cat. The perfect cat birthday present should challenge, nourish and stretch your kitty. It should build on their growing skills and bring out their natural instincts… and most of all, it’s a wonderful way to show them your love. To help you treat your beloved furry friend on their big day, we’ve compiled some of our favourite gifts for cats.
