Do you fete your dog or cat for their birthday? The pet friendly industry is booming (Americans spent $58 Billion on their pets in 2014), so I was wondering if and how you mark the passing of a birthday for your beloved furry friend.
My parents used to give their dog a pound of raw ground beef that I would decorate with doggie bones. My own dog would love the cake pictured here:
I tend instead to give her an extra rawhide that day and maybe a squeaky toy with seventeen squeakers to try and excavate from the poor stuffed animal by day’s end.
Cats strike me as harder to encourage to embrace any festivities. But this plate would likely help!
These birthday treats are not as tasty as ours, but we can still let our furry friends feel the love, right?
Let me know how you celebrate a pet’s birthday. I can’t even think what an iguana owner would do. Does a hamster get an extra special exercise wheel? Do goldfish get extra food? Or do you think marking an animal’s birthday is a crazy idea? Tell me why.
