Dog leashes, comfy cat caves, WagWellies, and more!

We all have that one friend whose fur-baby might as well be their real child. Their sweaters are constantly covered in cat hair, their favorite time of day is evening (for the dog walk), and most of their paycheck goes towards spoiling their darling pets.  So, if you're shopping for an animal lover this holiday season, you'll want to keep their beloved furry friend in mind.

If they're always on the go with their dog, set them up with a chic, purse-style pet carrier. Or if they're always looking for new ways to entertain their kitten, a motion-sensor cat toy is the way to go. No matter what animal they keep close to  heart, we've gathered the gifts that will please any devoted pet parent.
