If you are like me, your own cats probably have all the toys, treats, and goodies they need. The good news is you can buy them another toy or two and help to benefit a homeless cat, at the same time. Many both profit and non-profit organizations have programs wherein a portion of your purchase goes toward an animal charity. In simple terms, as an example, a new squeaky cat toy for my Jenny will help donate money toward the need cats Best Friends Society Supports.
Another way to make the holidays happier is to adopt a cat from an animal shelter or cat rescue near you, and if you can make it a senior cat or special needs cat, another star in your crown.

Thanks to Judyjo6 for breaking the ice with this new User Answer feature: Share Your Holiday Help for Need Cats. Judy wrote, "As an everyday foster for a local Kitty Rescue, I am a volunteer Gift Wrapper set up [for] Borders Bookstores. Customers donate for this service. I also recruited my son-in-law and daughter for a day of Santa and Photographer, for Santa Photos with the pets, that also brings in donations." Way to go, Judyj! You've set the bar for volunteer activities to help cats in three different ways.
