Cats and dogs are like family for most of us – they’re furry little children that we love with all of our heart and then some. I’ve always known this, but it was recently “brought home” yet again when a member of our family (who happens to walk on all fours, have whiskers, and wear a coat of fur) scared the wits out of us by becoming VERY ill VERY suddenly – as in out of the blue.
One day, he was fine, getting into absolutely everything and strutting around like John Wayne… then the next, he was completely lifeless. I have never, in all my years of being a proud “cat mom” and admitted “crazy cat lady” seen a cat get sick that fast. It threw us for a loop.
He is fine now and is, as I’m writing these words, strutting around like the Duke. Thank you God!
Naturally, when it comes to gift-giving, we buy Christmas, birthday, and sometimes even “just because” gifts for our cats and, of course, dogs too (those of you who’s cats allow them to have dogs, anyway – mine flatly forbid it). Petco is a personal favorite place to shop for our cats – they have absolutely everything imaginable – toys, furniture, food, treats, beds, dishes… etc. It’s just a really fun website to browse around and even funner to open a box that’s been delivered as your furry family member watches.
Something else I really enjoy is their “Cat Community.” You can learn a lot there – knowledge from other cat families.
The infographic, below, is from Petco and lists three awesome (Pawsome, if you will) gifts for your animals that’ll make their (and your) life easier. Great ideas – in fact, the cat fountain is on my radar and I am BEYOND intrigued by the remote treat dispenser!
