Are you done with your holiday shopping yet? Thankfully we FINALLY are. I was hoping to be done a lot sooner (usually I’m done in October). There are just a few more special family members on my list to shop for – our pets!
I always make sure to get a special treat for our pets. Sometimes I buy a bunch of cat toys that my five cats share, or I’ll buy them a “big” gift (last year it was a new cat tree which I have to replace already). As for our dog, he doesn’t have to worry about sharing his toys with anyone else.
I wish I could find something special for Fishy and Wishy – our fish.
My four legged family members did get some early holiday gifts this year from PetSmart. I couldn’t wait to give them to them. Now I have nothing for Christmas morning so I need to swing by PetSmart to take advantage of the 12 Days of Deals from PetSmart.

I see that they have a cat tree (tower) on sale (50% off!) on the 23rd. Sadly I need a tower/tree with more levels. I have five cats. I have seen all five of them on it at the same time. Mostly there are at least 3 on the tree at any time.
One toy my cats are crazy for is the Martha Stewart Santa Ball Dangler. The toy hangs off the end of a wood stick from a string. Simply swing it around and up and down and what your cat go crazy trying to catch Santa.
My cats also enjoy the Martha Stewart Tutu Mice. They come in a two pack. Each little mouse has a jingle bell on it’s tail (that drives my cats crazy!) and a cute little tutu skirt.
Of course our dog Espn (pronounced “es-pin”) received some fun dog toys. PetSmart sent Espn some Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer toys and a Winnie the Pooh toy. I was reluctant to give them to him. These are beloved childhood characters. The idea of Espn chewing them apart and slobbering all over the with dog spit made me sad. But I knew he’s have fun with them and I couldn’t wait to see how much he liked them. He loves them!
One toy our dog Espn can’t accept is NOT for him is the Kong Glide & Seek toy. It’s for CATS. Inside there is a toy with a feather on it that moves around on the inside (via a magnet). You cat’s objective is to reach inside one of the holes and grab it. It sounds easy enough but it’s fast and it’s not easy for the cats to grab so it’s a bit of a challenge for them.
For some odd reason Espn thinks this is HIS toy. He’s already ripped out one of the toys that goes inside and chewed it up. Thankfully the toy comes with two.
PetSmart has wonderful toys for your pets, big and small. You can pick up a few little “stocking stuffers” like the Tutu mice or something a bit larger like the Kong Glide and Seek.
Personally I like to get my pets a variety of toys. I like to offer my pets toys that they can play with on their own as well as toys that I can play with them (interactive toy). Thankfully PetSmart offers so many toys in all different price ranges. I am always able to find something special for my beloved pets.
I also like to give the gift of comfort and security by offering my pets warm, snugly beds and pet cubes (my cats also love tunnels and crunchy “bags”).
