Animals do not care whether it is Christmas or not - they do not care about holidays, but are still happy about suitable gifts. The special treat or a great new toy always ensures glowing dog looks and cat eyes.

Gifts for pets should be animal-friendly

A colored cat bowl, sequined dog clothes, glittering decorative items and the like may suit the taste of some pet owners, but are mostly nonsensical for dogs and cats and not recommended. Cats don't care what design bowls are in or what color they are. And a dog doesn't care whether something glitters or is decorative. Gifts for pets should primarily give pleasure to the fur nose. But what is suitable for Christmas?

Culinary Christmas for animals: treats

Christmas gifts for pets that delight the palate are always welcome. You can surprise your dog and cat with a special treat. But be careful: some animals are sensitive to changes in feed. It is therefore best to stick to the usual menu instead of trying out a completely new flavor. What do your woof or kitty like best? As a precaution, you should not feed leftovers or even poultry bones or fish bones. These can splinter and lead to internal injuries. Chocolate or the like is also taboo as it can be toxic to dogs and cats and could otherwise end with a visit to the veterinarian on Christmas Eve.

Toys always go: Fummelbrett, Retrieverspielzeug and Co.

Like children, dogs and cats enjoy toys and activities. Give your velvet paw a new fiddle board, toy mice or catnip toys. Your dog will surely be happy about new retrieval toys or something new to chew, nibble and bite on. Tip: Keep an eye out for a toy that your four-legged friend does not yet have - this will make the surprise even greater.

By the way: Not only people like to unpack gifts. The joy is even greater when pets can find and unpack their gifts themselves. Maybe you can think of an exciting search game for this? However, keep the packaging as simple as possible and do not use gift ribbons. Dogs or cats could otherwise accidentally swallow them while playing or get caught and injured in them. A simple box is usually sufficient and is especially fun for cats.
