Advent Calendar for Cats

This week, I am joining Create with Joy’s Inspire me Monday and Comedy Plus’ Awww…. Mondays. I know several of you already scored the Advent Calendar for Cats at Trader Joe’s. I was lucky to get one the other day too. It is for Prancie

At $5.99/each, I can’t get one for all my cats. I figure she puts up with fluids twice a day and all her meds, she deserves it the most.

Don’t worry, the other eleven kitties will not be excluded. I still have the Advent Calendar I made for them back in 2014.

Here is a refresher on how to make one for your kitties. All you need is a mini muffin pan with 24 spaces, scrapbook paper and a bag of treats.

Just cut out 24 circles ( hubby cut them for me). Then number them 1-24, add treats to each space and cover them. Then hide it from the kitties or they will eat them all on day 1.

Penny will be here tomorrow with another money saving tip for the holidays.





    1. Thank you 🙂 Yes, you could do it for the pups. I am sorry there is no TJ’s in Canada. XO

  1. Prancie is a real trooper and deserves her very own advent calendar! Hoping she continues to tolerate those treatments and meds….and we love the mini-muffin-tin advent calendar project!

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. I totally LOVE that! And the Mom -made one too! You’re right though. Any of us kitties would nom each days’ treats all at once!

  3. How fun to make your own. Clever and the kitties will love it as much as you do. I’m glad the Trader Joe’s Calendar went to Prancie. I agree with you.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  4. I haven’t yet ventured to a Trader Joe’s to eyeball the advent calendar for cats yet, but I’ll get there soon! I hear they run out every day.

  5. We gave my nephews an Advent calendar once, and one of them ate to Gaudete Sunday before they caught him…

    My cats would be the same way.

  6. Oh, that’s fun. We wonder if they have one for dogs too. We are going to tell Mom to check it out when she goes to TJ’s this week. She LOVES to shop there.

  7. Wowy, Mom and I didn’t know Trader Joes had an advent catlendar. I will put it on Mom’s shopping list for when she goes to town! Thanks for telling us about it. Purr purr purr.

  8. We just got ours today thanks to Mupdie’s mom (she mailed us one since we don’t have a Trader Joe’s near us). We can’t wait to get started with it.

  9. I wish there were a Trader Joes here in Canada 🙂
    Love your idea about the homemade muffin kitty advent calendar, though!

  10. I love this idea, what a cool way to serve them treats! And so glad Prancie got her very own. I wish her all the best with the fluids and meds xx

  11. This is one of many reasons why I wish there was a Trader Joe’s in my area. We also do a makeshift Advent calendar for the kitties at our house, though, so they still get to participate. I never have trouble finding an Advent calendar for the pup, but it’s so hard to find one for kitties. Way to go, Trader Joe’s, for remembering the kitties!
