If you’re like us you have pets and you want to include them in your holiday gift giving too. We like to think about how to include the pets in holiday gift giving. We’ve always added the cats to our gifts under the tree. While at TTPM I found some great gifts for cats and dogs. I think my favorite thing for dogs was the Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Blaster.
We don’t have a dog though so we didn’t grab one to play with but I wanted to share the video from TTPM
With our two cats though I was excited to see all the different cat items that were available. I fell in love with some of them and was excited when WorldWise sent items from a few of their different brands including SmartyKat, Petlinks and Sherpa. The best part is while some of these products are cat products some are great for both cats and dogs! We were lucky enough to receive another SmartyKat Mer Mouse Kicker Cat Toy with Feathers. This is one of the cats’ favorite toys. Puff will carry it all over the house screaming at it!
We also received the Petlinks Rowdy Rustler and the SmartyKat Twirl ‘n Peek Electronic Motion Cat Toy as toys for the cats to play with.
These are both great options for the cats. They are pretty inactive. The Rowdy Rustler gives a different sound and option than the feathers that normal toys give. The little house that comes with the Rowdy Rustler can be configured in different ways to give optional play for the animals.The Twirl n Peek can be used with or without the box and also offers different play because of it. If something happens to the box, it can be easily replaced. I know our cats scratched ours up and eventually tore it after playing for a few months. We simply replaced it with a similar sized box with holes cut out.
To make for easy travel Sherpa provided us with a Comfort Ride travel carrier and the Comfort Strap. While our cats don’t travel with us very often, it is nice to have for those trips to the vet and unfortunately for those emergency trips.
As for what were the cats favorites? Hands down they were the Petlinks Scratch Around 3-in-1 Hide & Play Station and the bed that we received. Now to be fair we also received a small thing of catnip and we had sprinkled a little on the bed. But since then the cats are often found snuggled in the bed or playing with the sissal rope from the scratch around.
How do you include your pets in your gift giving for the holidays? Do they get any gifts at all? Do you have any special traditions? Does your pet have a special stocking or ornament for the tree?
