Now that the holidays are upon us, thoughts turn to shopping and finding the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Is your pet on your shopping list this year?
Because pets have become such an integral part of our lives and families, studies show that most pet parents give their furry friends some kind of gift at Christmas. With all the love and devotion we get from them throughout the year, giving back to our pets at Christmastime just feels right. Toys are the most popular gifts, but bedding, collars and leashes, and grooming products made the list, too. Take a look:

So, tell us: will you be giving your pets a gift this Christmas?
Although celebrating Thanksgiving is a wonderful experience for us humans, it can be a very stressful time for our pets. All of the hustle and bustle of a house full of strangers, not to mention all that yummy food, can create an environment that causes pets to become agitated, scared, and even sick.
So what can we do to make sure that our pets remain healthy and happy as we celebrate the holidays?
One great idea for cats is to create a peaceful sanctuary where your kitties can hang out while the rest of the house is filled with guests. A quiet guest room with a door, equipped with your cat’s food, litter box, and maybe even a few toys, will provide a safe place for him to chill out until everyone goes home.
