When most people think about giving a gift, they think about buying for people. But did you know that for a lot of people, their pets are their family? Many people refer to their animal companions as 'children with fur' so it's important when you shop for your friend or family member that you consider buying something for their pet too. Or, if you have a pet at home, don't leave him or her out during the busy holiday season. Here are some ideas of what to buy for those beloved fury or feathered friends.
Treats make good gifts for pets. Bunnies, Gerbils, Hamsters, Rats, Birds, Dogs, and Cats, all love treats. Whether the pet treats are home made, bought from the store, or specially ordered online such as already prepared gift baskets, your pet will be sure to love them! You can find some recipes on the Internet if you want to make something home-made, but be careful to ensure the ingredients you use are pet-friendly for the particular pet you are making the food for. Also be careful, treats tend to be higher in calorie and may contain sugar and other ingredients that aren't the best for your pet, so offer treats sparingly to ensure your pet doesn't become sick from too much of a good thing.
Pets like toys as gifts also. Dogs love tennis balls, and cats love stuffed animals or catnip. Cats also like toys with string, ribbon, and yarn. One of the things that pets likes the most is interaction with their owners. So whatever toys you intend to give, make sure that it is something that the owner and pet can play with together for social interaction. Dogs love to go for walks in the park, where they can play fetch and chase a ball too. Remember pets are a big part of the family, so next time it's a holiday season, a pet's birthday or even when a friend is feeling under the weather, it's remember to include the pet in the family too.
