crazy cat lady starter pack

Crazy cat lady – I hear people using this title often. As a cat owner, I consider myself a crazy cat lady by default, but is this enough to win me that title? I’ve looked around and put together a crazy cat lady starter kit to help those of you who want to make sure you’re a crazy cat person (male, female, we don’t discriminate).

Here are 30+ products you need to add to your shopping cart right now (and some other bonus actions in between)!

30+ Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit Must-Haves

1. Cats (3 to 100)

You wouldn’t be a crazy cat lady without, well, cats. The number is where it gets tricky. According to the internet, the most reliable source ever, to qualify as a crazy cat lady, you need to own at least three cats.

Don’t get me wrong, I only have one at the time of writing this, but that doesn’t stop me from declaring myself a crazy cat person.

Now, when it comes to the number of cats, the choice is yours, of course. However, when it comes to the varieties of cats to call your own, you may take one of several routes. You can buy one (or more) of the most expensive cat breeds in the world – you are crazy, after all, so you also might be crazy-rich.

The better solution, however, is to adopt a kitten from a shelter (which we wholeheartedly recommend, for the obvious reasons) or, you can pick one of the many hypoallergenic cat breeds available if you are crazy enough to have both a cat allergy and a cat.

2. Cat Stroller

Who says strollers are just for babies? Take your furry baby out for a walk without having to traumatize them with a leash. Sure, people might look at you strangely, but who are they to judge?

3. Cat Mom Mug

Do you know those dads who proudly drink from the best dad mug at the office? That can be you, even if you don’t have any kids. There are many cat mom mugs out there, but I particularly liked this one for the sentiment it so kindly exudes.

4. An impressive collection of pictures of your cat

If you don’t have more pictures of your cat than you do of yourself, you’re doing it wrong. Looking through my phone, it seems I found my cat sleeping on the table more fascinating than my cousin’s wedding, so that’s cool.

5. Cat Sweater

What if your cat gets chilly while lounging around the house sleeping 12 hours a day? God forbid. They need a cozy cat sweater. This is for purely practical reasons, of course, not because they look incredibly cute wearing one.

6. Cat on Board Sticker

You know what? You don’t even need to own a car to buy this sticker. However, I think you do get bonus points for actually sticking this on your car, and having to endure all the lame crazy cat lady jokes people will probably yell at you in traffic.

7. Cat Tattoo

Next on our list of crazy cat lady starter kit is a cat tattoo. What better way to shout your love for your cat from the rooftops than getting a tattoo of it? You can go the nondescript cat route and get a cute paw imprint, or you can ask the tattoo artist to make a drawing of your actual cat.

8. Lint Rollers (yes, plural)

I feel very strongly about this because I realized this very morning when I was getting ready for work that I was all out of lint rollers. Don’t repeat my mistake and get a whole bunch of them at once because you’re going to need one for every room and possibly one for every bag you own. Of course, if you have the money or the inclination, you can get a bunch of some of the weirdest and cutest hairless cats in the world. Nevertheless, if you take the regular crazy cat lady route and hoard all the stray cats in the neighborhood, lint rollers are your way to go.

9. Cat Ears

Who says it needs to be Halloween for you to put your cat ears on and be on your worst behavior? Luckily, there are many cat ear options out there, from cat ear headbands to cat ear hats.

Why would anyone want to color anything other than cat butts is beyond me. For a relaxing Saturday evening, grab your cat in one hand and your coloring book in the other, and get your crayons ready.

13. Cat Butt Tissue Holder

In the same vein, if regular tissue holders are just too boring for you, grab your tissues out of your cat’s butt (not literally, of course). This is bound to strike up a conversation when you have people over. Not that crazy cat ladies have many people over, but who knows… You need to be ready, just in case.

How are people supposed to know your cat is the prettiest there ever was if you don’t pimp her out on the internet? The best way to do that? Open an Instagram account on her behalf and fill it with cute pictures. You may not reach the fame and fortune of some of the most famous cats in the world, but you will enjoy the attention and the joy you spread in the world.

16. Amazon Prime Subscription

This doesn’t have to be cat-related, but if you regularly order stuff for your cat on Amazon, a Prime subscription is mandatory. Mr. Whiskerson can’t wait for regular delivery. What is this, the Middle Ages? Either you regularly buy a diversity of cat foods online, cat chew toys, or other treats and accessories, a Prime subscription saves you a lot of time that you would better spend in the company of your furry buddies.

17. Crazy Cat Lady Candle

30. A “Cat Dedicated” Corner in Your Room

Corner, half a room, who even knows at this point. All I know is that a crazy cat lady starter kit wouldn’t be complete without a section of the owner’s home dedicated to the cat. Make a right at the fancy luxury cat tree you just bought, and you’ll reach the self-cleaning automatic litter box. When it comes to pets’ accessories, you can also consider a cat water fountain for your cats to encourage hydration and keep them entertained.

Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit: FAQs

Before we wrap up this guide on the crazy cat lady kit, let’s answer some of the most pressing questions related to this subject!

How many cats are too many cats?

To become a crazy cat lady, there is no such thing as too many cats. On a more serious note, for some people, too many cats are two, while for others, the number can be ten. There is no threshold or magic number that makes the transition between “how many” and “too many.” What you need to know before you take in a cat or more is to raise cats properly to avoid any health problems. This means the cat should receive all the proper attention to keep its physical and mental shape at maximum levels.

What is considered animal hoarding?

Jokes aside, animal hoarding is a legal issue. Animal hoarding laws differ from country to country and also differ from ordinances preventing people of owning more pets than they can take care of – usually, this number is fifteen. The law intervenes when the owners fail to offer proper living conditions for the animals or neglect them, causing injuries to the animals in question or themselves.

What else should one add to the crazy cat lady starter kit?

We also recommend you consider the following items to complete your crazy cat lady starter kit:

  • A carrying tote bag for pets so you can take your furry friend outside for a fancy walk downtown or in the park;
  • A cat-themed kitchen apron for all those times you prepare the food for your princess, no matter if you open a can or measure a cup of dry food.
  • Cat-shaped plates or dinner bowls so all your guests (if you have any) know how much in love you are with your cats.


Let’s tally up the score in the comments. How many of these items (or similar ones) do you own? How many did you add to your shopping cart after reading this article? Let me know your thoughts on this crazy cat lady starter kit and suggest other products that you think are worthy of being included.
