It's the best time to enjoy a cozy home.
We are counting our blessings of support, donations and volunteers

What's in Santas Bag for Your Pets
There is a reason why Jackson Galaxy, a well-known cat behaviorist, travels with guitar case filled with wand and feather cat toys, cats love them. They get to be with you and satisfy their chase and catch instinct. The feathers are a good attachment because their claws are not likely to get snagged in them unlike other cloth wand toys, but it is important to put them away when not in use so they can't chew and swallow the string. Swallowing string can be fatal for cats. Mice toys are always a favorite. Battery powered interactive toys are also a great choice to keep cats from getting bored and feeling neglected when you are away or time is short. Scratch pads and cat trees are a must for cat owners to save your furniture and relieve stress. They are the little lions in our house, and toys that allow them to practice their hunting instincts, can help keep behavior issues at bay. An interesting website, CatLovesBest - Tips, Tricks & Cat Product Reviews For Feline Lovers, has lots of insights and advice for a happy cat.
Dogs come in all sizes, likes and dislikes so the best toy for your dog is probably one that will last more than 2 minutes and hold their attention! Kong is known for their durable toys among other brands. Food motivated dogs will love the ones that hold treats, but whatever motivates your pup, beware of cheap cute toys that shred too easily and become choking hazards. Just like kids, dogs love their toys. What is more heartwarming than watching the excitement of your dog proudly carrying around a new toy!
