My two cats love the catnip  stratcther board they have so by Christmas each year they need a new one. Plus they new catnip mice and a ball or two as those do last too long as they are so playful even at 5 years old.

I buy my dog a squeaky toy every Christmas.  Somehow she can tell what package it is in ,I think by the smell.  She picks it out from under the tree and rips it to shreds, wrapping paper and all, then that's the end of it.  Too darn funny!

Yes always and we even buy our daughters birds/guinea pigs gifts.  It is Christmas and we would never leave our little loves out.

We buy special treats for our dog and cats. We also buy toys and donate them to local rescue groups

Yes, I also made her a steamed hamburger mixed with her dog food for her 9th birthday yesterday. She got a new dog toy, a dog biscuit and we sing happy birthday to her too.

When I was a kid growing up, my family had two dogs.  My father liked to get our dogs dog toys and feed them steak for a week.  That was their Christmas gifts.  I believe this is a good thing to do because dogs are part of the family too.

My cats are not pets, they are more like family!  So of course, we buy them gifts... and we selfishly enjoy every minute of them playing around with them!

A lot of people buy their pets holiday gifts, are you one of them?  How do you feel about buying gifts for friend

 

It wouldn't be Christmas if my Matoska (my Parsons jack Russell) didn't get presents. Besides crocheting her beautiful sweaters, hats, scarves, and toys she get homemade cookies and whatever Santa brings her 😋.And yes,hide though packages cuz she will find them and open them many times before Christmas.

Of course.  Pets are family members too.  The cats get new catnip toys and maybe a new "chase" toy. Sometimes a new bed, if the old one is looking shabby or losing stuffing.  I have "Goddogs" too, and they get a new Nylabone or Kong and a box of dog treats.
