9 Must-Have Cat Products for When You're Away From Home

1. A Water Fountain

A Water Fountain keeps your cat's water supply fresh and filtered, which is very handy for when you're not at home for a period of time.

2. Automatic Feeder

Automatic feeders are great if you are going to be away overnight, as you can program them to release food every few hours to keep your kitty fed.

3. A Self-Cleaning Litter Tray

Because cats are very clean creatures, they will love having a clean litter tray straight away, without having to wait until you're home to clean it up.

4. Feather Spinner

While there are so many interactive toys available to keep your cat entertained while alone, this feather spinner is one of my favourites.

5. Cat Tree

Cat furniture is a wonderful addition to any home. But in all seriousness, cat trees are great because they extend your cat's territory vertically and allow them a high-up vantage point from which to survey their realm.

6. Hideaway bed

A safe hiding place is important for cats left home alone. If startled, their first instinct is to find somewhere safe to hide. There are many ways to provide a hidey-hole space for your cat.

7. Cat Senses Speed Circuit

Circuit toys are notoriously popular with cats worldwide. This toy consists of a covered, undulating track, with an illuminated ball that rolls around the circuit when prodded.

8. An Automatic Laser Pointer

There's no doubt that cats love chasing laser pointers. It is a wonderful way to exercise your cat, and because they can't catch the thing they're chasing, you don't ever have a destroyed toy to clean up.

9. A Cat Flap

Pet doors are ideal if you have an enclosed balcony or courtyard that you'd like your kitty to have access to when you're not home.
