Some little boy or girl is going to be very happy with The Purr-fect Gift of a cute kitten – if Santa can coax one of them out of his warm hat, that is! Santa has filled the stocking with candy canes for the child and a ball of yarn for the kitten to bat at or scamper after. Santa is certainly attired for the season, dressed in his traditional red pants and suspenders and a joyful, patterned holiday shirt. Three sweet kittens cuddle together in his cozy hat, which rests inside a gift box.
Santa has braved all sorts of inclement winter weather, so he’s not afraid to spend some time in The Great Outdoors. He’s without his reindeer team this time, but he does have a compass and his faithful Black Lab at his side. When it’s time to rest, Santa can dip into his lunch basket for some nourishment. Santa has traded his characteristic red coat for a brown jacket. His canine friend has on a green jacket to keep him warm on their nature trek.
As the calendar days creep toward Halloween, you’re making plans for the most fabulous Fright Night yet. Your favorite furry pal has surely been curious, watching you lug in oversized bags of candy and unearth spooky decorations. This holiday shouldn’t be scary for your pet, though, so take note of these Halloween pet safety tips from PetMD and the ASPCA.
Sweet Enough As Is
Your beloved pet is plenty sweet enough on his own – so keep all Halloween candy away from him. All forms of chocolate, as well as candies with artificial sweeteners, can be dangerous for pets.
Not My Style
Your pet might be a camera darling in her new costume, but her comfort should trump cuteness. Test her costume out on her before Halloween, and forgo the new threads if she seems uncomfortable or distressed. Also make sure that her costume doesn’t restrict movement or breathing. Avoid small adornments that could be chewed off and choked on.
Double, Double, Door Trouble
If you’re expecting trick-or-treaters, consider keeping your pet in a separate room away from the front door. You don’t want to stress your pet with all the commotion or give him a reason to turn territorial. You’ll also want to keep him from darting outside on what could be a chaotic night for pets.
It’s the Not-So-Great Pumpkin
Those lit jack-o’-lanterns certainly have a pretty glow, but exercise caution if you use candles. Pets could get too close and burn themselves or knock over the pumpkin display. And on the topic of pumpkins, make sure your pet doesn’t ingest them, at the risk of tummy trouble.
The Name Game
With the proper care, this should be a happy Halloween for you and your pet. To be on the safe side, however, make sure your pet has an up-to-date ID tag and/or microchip.
October kicks off the holiday season, and though Christmas seems far away, before long you’ll be flipping the calendar page to December. On St. Nick’s Day or on Christmas morning (if you’ve been good), you can enjoy all sorts of goodies from your holiday stocking. But what about your pet? Will he be resting his jowls on his paws, wondering if any of the treats are meant for his teeth? Will she be flicking her tail expectantly, watching with alert eyes as you pull out your holiday bounty? The Monogrammed Pet Stockings will ensure that your furry pal isn’t left out of the holiday merriment.
Don’t let your pet get neglected in the holiday hubbub, and remember to show him plenty of TLC – lots of pats and belly rubs, plus a cute stocking loaded with your pet toys, treats, and grooming essentials. The Woof Dog Christmas Stocking has a pup in seasonal attire, holding a bone; the Meow Cat Christmas Stocking features a striped kitty with a present. Each red pet stocking has a loop for hanging and a white cuff that is ready and waiting to be monogrammed with your pal’s name. These pet stockings are a clever way to treat your furry friends, but they also make great gifts for the fellow pet lovers in your life. They’ll be happy that you included their beloved dogs or cats in the seasonal gift-giving!
