For something so little, it’s actually pretty amazing how much stuff cats need. There’s the cat food, the cat litter, the litter box, the toys, the treats and the designated scratching areas (AKA not your couch). Lucky for them—and people who’ve chosen to be owned by them—Chewy has all the gear cats need to be happy and healthy.

(Congrats, BTW!)
American Journey Turkey & Chicken Grain-Free Cat Food
It’s not hard to tell when a cat is hungry. They’ll straight-up tell you when it’s dinnertime! What’s not always so easy is figuring out what to feed your cat. This grain-free cat food includes real, deboned turkey and chicken; wholesome fruits and veggies; antioxidants; and omega fatty acids. What more could a cat want—besides a never-ending supply of it. (Pro Tip: It’s always recommended to slowly transition your cat to a new food by gradually mixing it in with their current food. This small 5-pound bag makes it easy to do just that.)
Van Ness Lightweight Double Pet Dish
Speaking of cat food, you’ll need something to serve it in. This dish is a steal at $1.34 and is super convenient. It has two containers that make it easy to serve both food and water. It has built-in handles that make it easy to carry. And it’s dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. The only thing it can’t make easier is convincing your cat the bowl is not empty just because they can kinda, sorta see the bottom of it. If only.
Frisco Open Top Cat Litter Box
This open-box design and removable top rim provides a roomy-yet-private place for cats to do their business. Plus, the warm gray color is neutral enough to fit with any home décor, should you need to place the box in a more high-traffic area due to space constraints. Bonus: It’s BPA-free and can even be recycled, making it purr-fect for eco-minded cat parents.
Frisco Lightweight Clumping Cat Litter
All cat parents want a litter that handles messes and odors well. This one not only does that, but also weighs a whole lot less than other clumping clay litters—50 percent less. That means you don’t have to feel like you're lifting weights every time you pour some litter into your cat’s litter box. Unless, of course, you’re really into lifting weights, in which case, you do you.
SmartyKat Super Scratcher with Catnip
Cats need to scratch to keep their nails healthy, relieve anxiety, and flex and stretch their muscles. But you don’t want them scratching your stuff. What do you do? Get them something they're allowed to scratch, like this scratching board. Made from corrugated cardboard, it allows cats to groom their nails and get a kitty workout in. It even comes infused with catnip to entice your cat to scratch this and not that—that being your designer area rug.
Frisco Colorful Springs Cat Toy
You’ll probably catch your new cat hunting and stalking all kinds of things. Birds, bugs, your toes when they wiggle under the covers. Cats have a built-in predatory drive, so get your feline something fun to hunt. With 10 to a pack and less than $2, these spring-like cat toys are a real bargain. Plus, they have an erratic bounce that will make for an exciting playtime. Much better prey than your toes!
Frisco Pineapple Breakaway Cat Collar
Collars are a great way to show off your feline’s flare for fashion. This cat collar has lots of personality with its pineapple pattern. It’s a breakaway collar, which means the buckle will break and the collar will come off should your cat get caught on something. Fashion and function—what’s not to like?
VetriScience Composure Cat Chews
Moving can be stressful for everyone, especially cats who are creatures of habit. Keep calm and carry around these chews to help soothe stressed kitties. They contain L-Theanine, thiamine, and a trademarked "calming complex" to naturally alleviate stress-related behavior.
The grand total for all this stuff is $49.75. (With Chewy’s free shipping for orders over $49, new cat parents can save even more.) Bonus: The box this stuff comes in also doubles as a gift for your new cat.
