Holiday Gifts for Pets

The holidays are just around the corner! As you start your shopping, don’t forget about your furry friend! Read on as a local Los Gatos, CA vet lists some great holiday gifts for pets.

Cats

Don’t be surprised if you find your cat sleeping under the tree. After all, our feline buddies are precious gifts! To get your kitty purring, start by filling her stocking with fun toys. Classic cats toys like catnip mice and wand toys are fine, but you can also get your furball catnip bubbles, robotic mice, mechanical floating fish, or other modern kitty gadgets. You can also order your pet some DVDs for cats. If you really want to go all out, get her some kitty furniture. Cat towers are great, but your furry pal will also appreciate a pet tent or tipi, or, of course, a new bed. Don’t forget to give Fluffy some of the empty boxes once you’re done opening gifts!

Dogs

Toys make great gifts for Man’s Best Friend! Fill your pup’s toybox with some fun new doggy toys. If your pooch likes chasing balls, he may enjoy an automated ball launcher. A good bed is another great gift for your canine buddy. If you have a large breed or senior dog, consider getting Fido an orthopedic doggy bed. Your pooch may also enjoy a comfy new harness or leash, paw balm, or doggy clothes. Last but not least, put some treats in your dog’s stocking to really get that tail wagging.

Pocket Pets

Little furballs need love, too! If you have a bunny, Guinea pig, hamster, or gerbil, you can brighten up your tiny buddy’s day with a special something. Chew toys are great options for smaller pets. Special treats are also a great gift. Just be sure to offer only things that are both safe and suitable. A new hidey-hole is another good gift option for pint-sized pets. You could even get your four-legged friend a bigger, better cage!

All Animals

As you’re spoiling your own four-legged friend, don’t forget about other animals in need. Donating money or supplies to an animal charity is a great way to spread some holiday cheer! If you’re taking time off for the holidays, you may even want to consider volunteering.
