<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/santa2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":santa:"> Not that we need any excuse to spoil our pets <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/penguin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nigel:"> but around here the Holidays are one of those times where I can go out and spend money on the pets without feeling guilty about splurging. Anyone else get their pets any presents? Fess up.<br><br><br><br>
My dogs just had a joint birthday party about three weeks ago and lots of people came and gave them toys and treats, so for Christmas they've all gotten mostly practical gifts. Although they did get a few stuffed animals from goodwill. They each got nice big dog bowls (no more dollar tree crap with the food spilling everywhere when I try to mix in canned food), and cheap comforters for their crates. Skip got a t-shirt that says "bitches love me". Mikey got a special night collar. Starbucks got a new basketball. And they got a second bike leash attachment. The cats got a better cat bed, their favorite treats (aquariyums) and will get a cat tree off ebay after the holidays. My parents and sister's dogs are all getting talking hand puppets from krogers that aren't really dog toys, but which my own dogs love more than their real toys.

a friend got the pets: a new woolrich reindeer (fake sued), 2 dog tug ropes, cat mice, for my cats, greenies, and I bought my new pup "puppy class." Hopefully she will learn how to behave.

We got Rufus a new big cushy bed. Hopefully he won't eat this one. He also has a stocking which will be filled with various treats, bones, and a new big crazy basketball toy.

Ducky is getting this- <a href="http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pcatid=3182&N=2002+113032" target="_blank">http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...&N=2002+113032</a> because she rubs on things about 16 hrs/day. Roberts is getting a crinkel sack. They already got their stockings before I went out of town so they would have lots of new toys to play with. They also got a new cat post (<a href="http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pcatid=851&N=2002+113198" target="_blank">http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Produc...&N=2002+113198</a>) from one of my friends who upgraded her cat's to one more appropriate for their age.<br><br><br><br>
Other than that they're getting a few smaller things, some sew your own toy kits, they got christmas themed collars and some christmas themed toys.

Then I got her a reindeer toy.. but I gave that to her early too.<br><br><br><br>

Now I feel kind of bad because I didn't get Leo anything. But he doesn't like to play with toys anymore and treats make him puke.

We gave our animals the same thing we gave ourselves: more time with Pesto. It's the best gift ever. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think that wins so far in the thread. Pesto is a very lucky cat to have such caring owners.

My dog opens her own presents, and helps open everyone else's as well. She gets a buttload of tennis balls from my parents & a big plastic candy cane of dog treats from my granny every year.<br><br><br><br>
My cats aren't getting anything. They have a million toys and rarely play with most of them. I'm mean, I know.

I bought all four of my cats a bungee cord to use to keep them out of their food storage container. No matter what I try, they seem to be inexorably innovative in their ability to get kibble of of the damn thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veryangry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":grr:">
