The Best Advent Calendars for Cats

Advent calendars aren’t just for kids and humans, but they also aren’t just for the dogs of the pet world either.

Your cat needs the occasional treat too, and in the run-up to Christmas, what better way than a cat advent calendar? A daily treat will not only work as the perfect reward but can of course also get them into the festive countdown.

Below are the best cat-friendly advent calendars around, whether you’re after something ready-made or want to put your own stamp on it with their favourite treats.

To find the best cat advent calendars, we looked for brands that are known and trusted in the pet world to ensure the treats are safe for your pet and that there is enough information about the treats out there. After all, you don’t want your cat to get an upset stomach.

But we also understand that if your cat is picky or has dietary requirements, you may want to make your own, so we’ve also picked out some DIY advent calendars which can be used year after year and are simple to set up.

Don’t forget to get a little Christmas cat gift to put in their stocking, too!

    For cats aged 6+ months, these limited edition treats will be ideal if your cats love to have a proper treat that they wouldn’t usually have day to day.

    The Festive Salmon Nibbles and Cracking Chicken Nibbles use natural ingredients and proper meat, so they’re good for your feline friend too. They’re all grain-free and ideal for any sensitive stomachs, which is great if you’re worried about diet changes.

    As they are pillow-shaped treats, the filling is extra tasty and outside shell is good for their teeth.

    The Scrumbles advent calendars are always a popular hit with customers and pets alike, and this cat advent calendar is no different.

    It is purr-fect for getting everyone into the festive spirit, with natural cat treats that have functional and health benefits as well as an irresistible taste. Because there’s a few different treats in the box, they won’t get bored either.

    Predominantly made from chicken, potato and healthy oils, they won’t even affect the most sensitive of tums. Suitable for cats 3+ months.

    Best Personalised

    This is definitely for those cat owners out there who want to spend a bit more on their furry companion.

    It’s crafted from wood with a natural finish and filled with sparkling twinkle lights, so isn’t going to ruin your Christmas decorations. As it is personalised, their name is engraved in the middle, and there are 24 boxes to open ready for the big day.

    It requires 2 x AA batteries because of the lights, and the ability to put any treats in there is great for cats on a controlled diet who just need them presented in a jazzier, festive manner.

    Something which you can really put your own stamp on, this jar would be great if your cat responds well to “reaching into the treats jar to reward good behaviour” actions.

    The jars come empty, so you can fill them up with a selection of their favourite treats which is a failsafe option. Why pick these over an old jam jar, though?

    Well, they’re personalised and marked with a beautiful lasting finish, as well as being wipeable and washable. You can personalise it with three lines of any text, so while your cat can’t read it themselves (or maybe they can…), you know that it is just for them!

    Rosewood is a well-trusted brand when it comes to pet products, and these treats will go down a storm.

    They are yoghurt and catnip treats, and we don’t know about yours, but that is two ingredients which our office cats will definitely not turn their noses up to! Just be prepared for the madness which may ensue…

    It’s available for kittens over 3 months, and all cats will be pleased that Cupid and Comet left them something and didn’t just think about the kids (big and small).
