Pet Gifts For All Occasions
Guest Post By: Joseph Rebisz
Pets are people too!
We, as humans, love to receive gifts for our birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, Valentines Day etc. Those occasions are all well and good, but the gifts for them are sort of expected. For me, the best gifts come out of the blue, for no reason at all. The kind you might get from a friend or family member just because they were thinking of you, no special occasion at all.
Well, in my mind, pets are really no different. Oh sure, they are always happy at feeding time and all, but they like their toys or treats just like we do. Our pets give us unconditional love whether we ask for it or not. They are not expected to, they just give it. You see something in a store you would like to have, so you buy it as a treat for yourself. I do the same thing for my cat. When I’m in a grocery store, occasionally I walk down the pet aisle to see what they have that I think my cat would like such as a toy, catnip or even just the off the wall treats just for the heck of it. Sure, I get her stuff like that at Christmas time and for her birthday, not that she knows when that is or even Christmas for that matter. That’s what makes it special for her, because she doesn’t know it’s coming. Of course, she thinks the Christmas tree is a new toy too! They deserve these specialty items for all they give to us all year around.
Where to find these special gifts?
As I said, you can find the simple little things in the aisle of a grocery store or supermarket. However, there are so many websites out there specifically for our pets and animals of all kinds. To name a few, there is Amazon, Chewy, PetSmart, PetCo and so on and so on. You can order these without having to leave your house, and in today’s times, that’s a good thing. No reason your pet should have to suffer the way we do in lock down. I found one toy in particular that you put treats inside of it for a dog I used to sit for from time to time, and it kept him busy and playful for hours on end. He didn’t know why he got it, but loved it and was always happy to see me when I came by.
So you see, it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to return the love we get from our pets. I hope this helps you share the love they give us and keeps them happy and thankful to us. I know they appreciate it. They can’t use words, but they show us in their own sweet little ways. Happy shopping!
