Christmas is almost here and if you have an animal in the house, we are sure there is a stocking hanging for it on your fireplace. And it doesn’t matter that they have no idea what the occasion is – you do and you probably want to share the celebration with them.
They are your family members and need a token of love too, right?
If you don’t have a pet yourself, you might want to show a bit of love to a pet of your family member or a friend. This gesture will go a long way and earn you some serious karma points.
With so many options for pets of every kind and breed, there is no shortage of gifts and ideas, but not all are great. Give us a chance to show you what we think would set every kind of animal running, jumping, barking, wing flapping, prancing, and meowing from joy:
