It’s that time of year again – the best time of all. While you’re busy making plans, seeing friends and family and buying presents, make sure there’e one (or more) person you don’t forget. Or should I say, furry little friend.
Buying for your pet can be fun at Christmas. But it can also be easy to think about getting them a new toy and stick to that. In reality, alternative options are so much more fun. Whether you’re keeping it small and a little something extra will do, or you want to well and truly spoil them, these idea could just be the perfect fit.
The Best Dress
No matter which pet you chose, you can let them have a little fun and dress them up nice. You’ve not lived until you’ve seen a dog prance around in a sparkly new shirt. It really is rewarding. A dog or cat might just look the part dressed up as Santa or an elf. You might love it that much that you decide to spring for an early Christmas present, just to see them styled up so cute for a little longer.
A Brother or Sister
Now, they say that a pet is for life and not for Christmas and that is very true. Under no circumstances should a family addition be thought of on a whim. But, if you’re pet is lonely, and you’ve considered it already, why not pick up a brother or sister for your fluffy loved one? It could even team up as a little present for yourself or the family. Being a pet owner is such a joy, an extra family member can only spread more happiness at Christmas.
This one might be something you’ve wanted to get for a while, but it could also be the perfect present for your pet. Your pet might have its own place to sleep, but maybe you’ve thought about letting them upgrade. Options like indoor dog furniture, like a super-cool tipi, or a sparkly new cage for your bird could make them very happy pets indeed. If you can’t spoil your pets at Christmas, when can you?
Your dog, cat, small animal, bird or reptile (does that cover them all?) might get a treat from time to time, but Christmas is when you can invest in something extra special. Organic food and treats for your pet might be something you firmly believe in, but if you’ve not tried it out, now might be the perfect time. Not only will your fluffy babies be happy and well fed, you’ll feel pleased with caring for them so well.
A Day Out
And sometimes, you just need to be able to spoil your pet like you would a parent, child or spouse. It’s perfectly acceptable to want to. There are a range of pet holidays and days out that you could choose for your pet. Or, you might want to shower them with love the old fashioned way by heading out and about somewhere local. Either way, they’ll be happy.
