Paw-sitively Useful Gifts for Cat and Dog Parents
Check out nine smart toys for the fur babies we love.
Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, if you have a furry friend at home, then you’re definitely a pet person. Pets may deserve all of our love, but it’s tough when you don’t always have enough time to play.
A general rule of thumb is that dogs need up to two hours of exercise a day, but that can vary from pup to pup. Don’t forget your feline friend, though. Cats need stimulation, too, so make sure there are plenty of toys around, or your furniture might become prey to a mighty hunter. If you’re always on the lookout for fun ways to keep your pets happy, active, and engaged while you’re busy, take a look at these nine paw-some deals that’ll have your cats fe-line just fine and score 10 stars from your ca-nine (puns very much intended).
