But what about those furry family members? Do you buy them gifts as well? Every year my sister and I do not exchange holiday gifts. If I find something that I want to get her during the year, I get it and give it to her. Why force myself to only wait until her birthday or Christmas?

I will admit that I do buy things for her cats. She now has 3 cats. According to her she is safe from becoming a crazy cat lady, because 3 is nowhere near close to the number of 5 cats, which she believes is the number where you become a crazy cat lady. (Her words not mine). If you are looking for some ideas to get your pet or someone else's, there are a number of "boxes" or 'crates' that might be the thing for you.

Here are a few, most are 3 to 5 items and include a combination of treats and toys.

  • RescueBox, for cats or dogs, these guys also help provide vaccinations & food for shelters, can get one or more months
  • Pawtyfun, for cats & dogs, can get one or more months
  • Chewy.com, for cats or dogs, this is a one time shipment
  • Barkbox, At this time it is only for dogs, but they are working on one for cats.
  • SuperChewer Box, this one is also just for dogs, but I can tell you the dog in my lif loves it! The toys are not 100% indestructible but they take longer for him to destroy than other toys.

Those are just a few, there are many, many more. What will you be gifting to your pet this month?
