Cat dads are something special, and there's no doubt how much they love their cats — I mean, you’ll probably know a cat dad is a cat dad even before you ask by the coating of fur on his T-shirt.

Whether they’re picking up their cat’s poop with an engraved pooper scooper or setting up a five-story scratching post, cat dads are there for their babies in all sorts of ways.

And on Father’s Day, all sorts of dads need to be celebrated — and that includes pet dads!

If you’re looking to get a unique Father’s Day gift this year for the loving cat dad in your life, these ideas are for you:

The Super Extra Dad

Cat dads are always a little extra — but then there's that *super* extra dad who just makes everybody’s heart swell with how much he over-the-top L.O.V.E.S. his cat. These gifts are for him:

Custom Cookie Cutter
