These Cat Slippers Literally Purr When You Walk in Them

Every cat owner can attest to their love of all things feline, regardless of exactly what those things are. (Case in point? I own six cat mugs, four kitty-faced plates, and three different necklaces in homage to the three different cats I’ve had in my lifetime.) The latest product to get the feline-ified treatment, though, is arguably the best one yet: these cat slippers that literally purr when you walk in them, as reported by POPSUGAR.

 

 

The Twitchy Kitty Cat Slippers with Sound, which retail for $35, are exactly what they seem. All you need to do is pull them onto your feet and curl your toes to activate the purring mechanism. The pink pads on the bottom of the paw, which look eerily similarly to my own cats’, feature an anti-slip fabric so you can paw around your home without worrying about a fall.

 

Not only do the battery-operated slippers come fully loaded and ready to go, but they’re also extremely easy to clean, making them a must have as the winter season rolls in and temperatures cool down. The one problem? The author who tested the slippers from POPSUGAR was quick to point out that while she may have loved the footsies, the slippers terrified her own cats. But maybe this is one purchase that’s worth the feline drama.
