The holidays are fast approaching, and if you’re a pet owner, this usually means two things: one, you’re waging a constant war with pet hair to keep your home looking presentable for guests. And two, a willful cat or sad-eyed pup can never truly be kept off the couch. It just isn’t going to happen.
But all is not lost! Quilted furniture covers are stylish and make tidying up a breeze. With sizes available for your recliner, loveseat, or sofa, the Snowflake Furniture Protector features cushy box-quilting. So your pet may be more inclined to lounge around on your furniture, but that’s okay. The microfiber polyester material is water-repellent as well as soil- and snag-resistant. Just toss your furniture cover in the wash (cold on the gentle cycle!) when your living room could use some freshening up. No more last-minute lint rolling!
As a bonus, the elegant snowflake print on medium blue is perfect for low-key winter decorating. For once, you can find recliner and couch protectors for dogs and cats that actually fit your holiday aesthetic. A few Swedish paper stars all hung in the window, a fluffy throw for some cuddling with your animal friend, and you’re all set!

The Special Handling Required Clothtique™ captures a heartwarming moment as Santa and his four-legged pals mail holiday greetings to veterinarians and pet adoption centers.
You’ll agree that this patient pup is certainly a “Good Dog.” This Clothtique™ figurine depicts Santa and his canine helper decorating a little Christmas tree with glittery bone-shaped ornaments.
This frisky black kitten just can’t wait to find out if he “Got Catnip” for Christmas! This lighthearted Clothtique™ features Santa with an embroidered knit stocking and a curious cat nearby.

Shh… Santa’s letting you have a sneak peak at what the elves at Kurt Adler, Inc. have been working on: pet Christmas ornaments! And if you’re in the merry mood early this year, you can go ahead and order them for yourself or stash them away as holiday gifts. These darling dog and cat Christmas ornaments can also be personalized (fur-sonalized?) to add a truly special touch to your tree.
All the beloved ornaments dangling from your tree say “family” in so many ways: those “First Christmas” baubles, construction-paper mice crafted from safety scissors, lopsided cotton-ball snowmen… so why not add an ornament that represents your four-legged family member?
The Christmas dog ornament is available in 10 dog breed styles: Beagle, Black Lab, Boxer, Bulldog, Dachshund, French Bulldog, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Yellow Lab, or Yorkshire Terrier.
The Christmas cat ornament is available in four variations: Black and White Cat, Gray Cat, Tabby Cat, or White Cat.
Each glittery Christmas ornament features a detailed pet wearing a Santa hat, a decorated Christmas tree, a red base, and a gold string for hanging. The dog ornaments even have bone motifs on the base.

Do you love digging out the Christmas decorations and turning your home into a holiday wonderland? Do you wrap presents like an origami master? If the holiday season is your time to shine, then enjoy every moment to the fullest—just remember that you might need to make a few alterations and substitutions if you have a furry friend in the house.
Here are a few seasonal decorations and accessories to avoid or to keep out of your pet’s reach, according to the ASPCA and PetMD. Together, you and your pet can have a safe and paw-some holiday!
Harmful or toxic plants:
Poinsettias are not as harmful as people often think; however, they can still make your pet mildly sick.
Fire or burn hazards:
- Electrical cords
- Lighted candles (try LED flameless candles instead)
- Lights on the lower branches of your tree
Choking risks or dangers to the digestive tract:
- Breakable ornaments
- Edible tree decorations like cranberry and popcorn
- Liquid potpourri and sachets

Santa loves pets just as much as you do! With his infinite patience and jolly sense of humor, he’s the ideal person to deliver these frisky furballs to their new homes for Christmas. Click here to view and purchase the pet-themed Clothtique™ figurines that are new introductions for 2016!
Designed by Ann Dezendorf, these finely detailed Clothtique™ figurines depict Santa with his cute animal friends. Each Possible Dreams® Santa is dressed in a hand-sewn cotton/polyester costume that is stiffened to add realism. Treat yourself to one of these special figurines, or give your favorite fellow pet lover an unforgettable gift.
When Three Little Kittens decide to play atop the tower of presents, only Santa can keep them from getting into too much mischief. He dangles a red ornament that seems to entrance the feline friends.
These puppies can hardly keep their tails from Waggin’ at the thought of their new holiday home. Santa has a gift bag to carry, so he’s decided to pull the pups along in a sweet red wagon. The green bag is tied with a red pawprint ribbon to enhance the charming scene.
If he could, the curious kitten who’s climbed on Santa’s shoulder would ask you to Define Naughty. After all, he’s just having a bit of harmless fun, right? Nevertheless, he’s stuck with the “Naughty” cap, while his two kitten buddies (behaving for the moment) get to wear the “Nice” ones.
Those shredded paper towel rolls, those scratches or tears on the furniture you weren’t supposed to notice… When your furry pal greets you after a long day or nuzzles up next to you, all is forgiven. And since your pet has charmed and nudged himself onto the good list, you’ll want to be ready with a Christmas stocking for his holiday bounty! Stock up on chew toys, treats, toy mice, and small food puzzles, then tuck them inside the Holiday Pets Fleece Christmas Stockings.
These pet Christmas stockings are beautifully embellished, so they’ll look just as darling as the other stockings hanging from your mantel. A furry white cuff crowns the red fleece stocking, which features either a striped, terry-cloth cat or a plush-material dog. Each animal wears a Nordic-patterned scarf and seems to be dreaming up its own winter fantasy: fish or bones. Clear iridescent sequins dapple the stocking like gentle snowfall, while more sequins decorate the white appliquéd treats.
These pet Christmas stockings can be “personalized” with your pet’s name, so all your visitors will see that Fluffy and Fido haven’t been left out of the holiday festivities.
