Include your cat in all the Easter fun this year by making something special for them. After all they’re family too. From egg hunts to Easter gifts, there is always something fun happening at Easter, especially if you have kids. So why not include your cat in the fun.
A great, easy idea would be to make a Cat Easter Basket. If you have more than one Cat, then one big Easter Basket for your Cats would be awesome (or a bunch of little baskets would be cool too).
Since there aren’t any Cat Easter Baskets you can pick-up from the store on your way home from work , you’re going to have to do the next best thing and make one. (You can order some excellent Cat Gift Baskets online if you like.)
Making your own Cat Easter Basket is not as difficult as you may think and it doesn’t take very long to do.
There are lots of Easter Basket Essentials right here you can check out to help you build the ultimate basket.
For something more suited to your Cat, we have picked out some fun ideas below to help get your creative juices flowing.

Selecting Your Easter Basket
The main part is your Easter Basket and there are lots of choices and ideas you can come up with. It can really be anything you want as long as it works well as a container. Just make sure what goes into your basket is cat safe. Also keep an eye on your cat when they are checking out their basket just in case they run into any trouble with it.
Now for the Easter basket. Here are some suggestions for an Easter Basket that you might like. For more details simply click or tap on an image or link.
A new cat bed would make a fun basket that your Cat will enjoy after all the goodies are out of it. Plus being bigger than a typical basket you can load it up with lots of cool Cat stuff.
A cat food bowl would make a fun little cat basket. You could place some fun cat items inside and what didn’t fit could go around the outside of the bowl. You can also keep it simple and go with two or three things to fill the bowl.
You can also go with a cool Easter basket. There are ready-made straw baskets, cloth baskets that can be re-used over and over again and Easter baskets you can make. Here are some fun choices.
Be sure not to use the grass liner you see used in most Easter baskets. It’s too dangerous for your cat, or any pet for that matter, as they can get it in their mouth and accidentally swallow it. A safe option is to use tissue paper for color that is crumpled up or torn into strips.
Filling Your Easter Basket
Now comes the fun part of filling your basket. An easy way to get some ideas is to think of all the things that cats like especially the things your own cat likes.
To help get you started here’s a list of ideas to put in your cat Easter basket. You can click or tap on an image or link for more details.
A fun idea is to grow your own cat grass. Your cat will love having freshly grown grass around. It helps with digestion and hairball build-up. The seeds are not included so you can buy the seeds here.
A 1 pound bag of organic catnip is always a great choice. What Cat doesn’t like Catnip. A fun idea for your Cat’s Easter Basket.
Your Cat would love to find a Catnip plush toy in their Easter Basket. It’s a toy filled with Catnip! It doesn’t get much better than this.
Get some of these colorful eggs, fill them with your Cats favorite food, treats or catnip and load up your Cat’s Easter Basket with them. These eggs will make a fun toy to play with and the surprise inside will be an added bonus!
I’m sure you thought of this idea already. But with treats we like to go the healthier route and get something that is tasty and good for them. These treats will help with your Cat’s digestion and keep those nasty hairballs under control.
Another perfect choice are Cat Toys! We’ve got a few fun suggestions for toys any Cat would have a blast with. There are fun tunnels, teaser toys, mice toys and feather toys. Play with your Cat when you have the time and the rest of the time your Cat will have lots of fun on their own.
We really like this idea that doubles as a bed and scratcher although it may not fit in your Cat Easter Basket. Maybe the Basket can fit in the Scratch Lounge or you can even make the Scratch Lounge the basket. Either way you Cat will love sinking their claws into this!
A more practical item would be a nice new grooming brush. It’s a great way to spend some time with your cat and pamper them with a nice brushing.
Your outdoor cat will look sharp with this comfy Cat collar. You can also embroider their name and number on the collar in case they become lost and wind up in the wrong place.
If you regularly clean you cats teeth a new Cat Toothbrush and Tooth Paste is a good idea. To make it more fun you can get these Silvervine Chew Sticks for Cats. This way your Cat gets a fun treat while scraping off plaque and tarter from their teeth.
