Cats might not count down the days until the holiday season, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't love a gift or two. Especially if that gift is a piece of string, food, or something shiny — anything they can hunt, really). And let's be honest, something about including our pets on our shopping list just makes the festivities that much more entertaining.

Thankfully, there are plenty of places where you can find presents for your festive feline, from surprisingly high-end to downright comical. We rounded up a few gifts that your cat will paw-sitively adore:

This dining station looks more chic than most human dining tables. It's also a bit of an investment, so we'd say reserve it for the feline that's been on Santa's nice list for a few years now.
