5 Pieces of Apparel Your Cat Will Love to Sport
Cat in a lobster outfit? Cat as princess Leia? Yes please. Sometimes we just love dressing up our pets, whether for fun or for health reasons. Dressing your cat can be beneficial to it in many ways, reduce hairballs (because they won’t groom as much), help in those harsh winter days when they are cold, any injury your cat might have had, with anxiety and of course there are the social benefits as it can be a joyful experience for the both of you. As there are an infinite amount of cat apparel out there we tested a few and singled out our top 5…
What to look for:
Size: When buying clothes for your kitty make sure they fit well. Measure your cat and make sure that the size is right, as it will help her get used to her new fancy clothes quicker.
Material: Make sure the quality is top notch, as cheap materials can be hurtful for your feline, cause a rash or worse.
1.Joybies Navy Blue Piddle Pants(tm) for Small Cat (Measuring 13in-15in Along Back from Collar to Base of Tail)
Joybies Pants for Cats are made of stretch fabric and have a red bow on the back strap. Piddle pads stay in place and don’t restrict your cat’s movement. They are stylish, functional, and washable and are perfect in potty training your kitten.
- Made of stretch fabric
- Suitable for both male and female cats
- Excellent for older cats
- The shipping is glacial, so planning ahead on ordering is a must
- Pads could be thicker
Conclusion: I’ve tested the Joybies Pants on my 18 year old cat who can no longer control her bladder and they fit great. This allowed her to roam around the house without soiling the carpet or any of my furniture. The pads are thin but hold a lot of urine. I highly recommend these pants, especially if you have an aging cat that is struggling with urinary issues.
Whether you are going for a visit to the vet, traveling somewhere new on holiday or your cat experiencing general fearfulness, ThunderShirt’s got you covered. By applying a constant (and gentle) pressure on the torso ThunderShirt for Cats imbues the cat with a calming effect, helping it relax and have a more positive attitude.
- Have a calming effect on even the most active of cats
- Quality fabric (resist collecting any hair)
- Cat hair (after taking it off they groom for some time)
- Velcro makes a scary noise for some cats
Conclusion: My cats are very active, especially at night when momma needs her beauty sleep. Honestly when we got this I was sceptical of this whole thing, but was amazingly and pleasantly proved wrong. It… IT WORKS. My younger female used to fuss about at night looking for mischief but with this shirt on, she calmed down, even slept next to me and purred. The only issue i can think of is having to put it on her, she gets scared from the Velcro. But once it’s on it does the job.

Conclusion: When I first saw this sweater I instantly fell in love and I had to get it! Luckily my cat had a similar reaction when it finally arrived!
