Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit: 30+ Products You Need to Own
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.
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
You know those dads who proudly drink from a 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
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.
9. Cat Ears
10. Purrli.com in Your Bookmarks
You’ve never heard of purrli.com? Then you’re not a real crazy cat lady. This wonder of a website is perfect for when you want to comfort your cat with the sound of another cat’s purr or, who are we kidding, for when you need comforting yourself because you’re away from your fur child.
11. Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure
Need we say more? The name of the product alone is proof enough you need this in your crazy cat lady starter kit. From the disheveled appearance to the buttload of cats, this action figure illustrates every delicious and slightly offensive stereotype about crazy cat ladies.
12. Cat Butts Coloring Book
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.
14. Cat Butt Magnets
I promise this is the last cat butt product in this crazy cat lady starter kit. Not for lack of options, rest assured. The internet loves cat butts suspiciously much. Looking at these magnets, though, who wouldn’t?
15. Cat Instagram Account
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.
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?
17. Crazy Cat Lady Candle
Yup, there’s even a candle dedicated to us crazy cat people. What does it smell like? Staying in your pajamas all day long, messy hair and all, knitting and hanging out with your cat. Even more crazy cat lady stereotypes? Yes, please.
18. Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit Magnet
Because just one cat magnet on your fridge simply won’t do, I recommend the crazy cat lady starter kit magnet, which references the first point on this list, having lots of cats. Look how cute those babies look in that box!
19. Human-to-Cat Translator App
How else are you supposed to know what Fluffy is trying to tell you? Use at your own risk, though. Don’t be disappointed if the app says your cat’s most common phrase is “Feed me, slave, then get out of my way.”
20. Pet Camera
Do you experience constant anxiety at the thought of your cat being all alone at home while you’re off gallivanting with your friends? You should. Install a pet monitoring camera to keep an eye on your kitty and even talk to it if you want to.
21. Cat Jewelry
If your cat owns more jewelry than you do, you’ve hit the jackpot in terms of a crazy cat lady starter kit. Who needs earrings and bracelets when Simba can have a pink rhinestone and pearl necklace?
22. Cat-Themed Clothing
As much as you enjoy spending money on your cat, be honest, your life wouldn’t be complete without a closet full of cat-themed clothing. Whether it’s a full-on cat onesie, pajamas, skirt, dress, or a shirt that lets everybody know your cat is your priority, the cat-themed clothing variety out there is impressive.
23. Subscription to Cat Lady Box
Or any other cat subscription box out there. Cat Lady Box is like a mind reader for crazy cat people. Its basic plan includes just products for cat owners, while the Crazy CatLadyBox guarantees both you and your cat will get to enjoy the monthly contents of the box.
24. Cat-Shaped Lipstick
This might be gimmicky AF, but it’s still something every self-respecting crazy cat lady should have in their make-up bag. Not that much of a lipstick, but more of a statement that you take your love of cats very seriously.
25. Cat-Themed Card Game
What do crazy cat ladies do when they get together? This may sound like the beginning of a joke, but I can answer seriously: they play a cat-themed card game. My personal favorite? The Original Cat Lady from Alderac Entertainment Group.
26. Cat-Themed Christmas Tree
If you’re lucky enough to own a cat that doesn’t give a tiny rat’s a*s about knocking down Christmas trees, make sure you get your gold star in crazy cat lady-ness by putting together a cat-themed Christmas tree.
27. How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety: And Abstinence, Drugs, Satanism, and Other Dangers That Threaten Their Nine Lives
The moment I set my eyes upon this book, I realized no Tolstoi or Hemingway could stop me from adding it to the top of my TBR list. Plus, let’s face it, Hemingway probably wouldn’t even try to stop me since he was a crazy cat person himself.
28. Normal Cat Lady Kitchen Towel
Sick of hearing everyone say you’re a crazy cat lady? Set the record straight by making sure they know their excessive love of humans is more concerning. What kind of monster would prefer hanging out with a human when they could hang out with a cat?
29. Cat-Themed Party Decorations
Are you really a crazy cat lady if you don’t celebrate your cat’s birthday? I think not. Luckily, there are plenty of decorations out there that are perfect for a cat’s birthday party. Make sure you buy them in advance, you never know when you might want to throw your cat an impromptu party.
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 cat tree, and you’ll reach the self-cleaning automatic litter box.

31. At Least One Cat-Shaped Pillow
Because there’s nothing funnier than a cat who sees a giant cat head on the sofa. I have one of these at home, and I have to say, even I get freaked out sometimes when I enter the room and forget it’s there.
32. An Empty Refrigerator
Why is your refrigerator empty again? Because you spent too much money on cat food and have to eat scraps again. Meanwhile, your cat’s pantry (yes, it has a dedicated pantry) is stocked full of a variety of fancy cat food options.
