Christmas Gift Guide: For Pets - and their Parents!

Early on in our 'courting', Steve won major brownie points by turning up with presents for Yuri and Taya on their first birthday.  If you want to get on the right side of anyone with fur babies, that's definitely the way to go.  Or maybe you're on the look out for some fun treats for your own four-legged pal this Christmas.  Here are our favourite gifts for pets.

Playing with cats is essential, helping them hone their natural skills and keeping their weight down, but even with the best of intentions time is limited, so try the Funkitty™ Doorway Dangli™ Cat Toy which will instantly turn any doorway into a kitty play centre.

Made from soft plastic that won't damage your wall or door frame, the toy swings back and forth on its stretchy bungee cord adding to the fun.  And for a special treat, the adjustable opening treat container dispenses kibble or biscuits as your cat grabs, swipes and bats, whilst the dangling furry tail satisfies your cat's natural hunting instincts

To brush away all that pet hair and keep their coat looking sleek and shiny, try the Pet Angel brush from royal and celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward's Tangle Angel brand.  Using the same tried and tested technology of his human range, the pet brush has special antibacterial properties, is gentle, water resistant and anti-static.  So easy to clean too, just tap on a hard service and the hair literally falls out.  Our cats are loving being brushed now!  The Pet Angel is suitable for cats and dogs.

Keep your dog or cat entertained with the FroliCat® DART DUO™ Automatic Rotating Laser Light, an automatic rotating light with two lasers for shared play with multiple cats.  Place the toy on the floor, turn it on, and watch them play!

The two lasers move in a circle, darting and switching directions in random patterns.  The unpredictable movement entices pets to dart, pounce, and chase the red dot.  With 4 adjustable speed and 4 timer settings to create 16 engaging play combinations, they'll never get bored.

With half of western cats showing signs of obesity, finding ways to keep them fit and active is essential.  The SlimCat™ Food-Dispensing Cat Toy is an interactive feeding toy that gives cats both portion control and exercise.  The feed ball works as a toy to increase feline activity, decrease excessive eating and improve behavioural problems associated with boredom such as excessive meowing, scratching or aggression.

The toy distributes an adjustable amount of dry food (up to 130g) as your cat plays with it.  By providing smaller portions of food throughout the day, it helps to maintain optimum weight as well as improving digestion.  Made from BPA-free plastic.

For the ultimate treat, and perfect for encouraging them to drink more during the day, preventing FLUTDs and other conditions, treat your pet to the Drinkwell® Ceramic Avalon Pet Fountain.  This brilliant drinking fountain continuously recirculates and filters the water, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a normal water bowl.

The Avalon fountain offers 2 litres of fresh, filtered water in a ceramic design that is easy to clean, pleasant to drink from, and looks great in your home.  The upper and lower dishes provide two drinking areas for pets, and the circular design makes it easily approachable.  Dual patented free-falling streams add oxygen for freshness and encourage pets to drink more.

Key Features:
  • Multiple free-falling streams add more oxygen for freshness
  • Ceramic design is easy to clean and hygienic
  • Elevated drinking dish for senior or arthritic pets
  • Submersible pump for quiet operation
  • Replaceable charcoal filter keeps water tasting clean and fresh
  • Holds 2 litres of water
  • Dishwasher safe, excluding pump
  • Made of ceramic
  • For indoor use only

Drinking enough water is important for your pet’s overall health, and this is the ideal way for them to get it.
