Get your Dr. Doolittle on with these fun pet gadgets
We've all had those moments when we've wished we could have an exotic animal. And how many of us grew up with Dr. Doolittle? We'd venture to guess quite a few of us fall into one or both of those categories. How could you not want to have a lion or a wolf and be able to talk to it? You probably don't have either of those, but we have all the pet accessories for your pet.
Let’s face it. Sometimes we buy fun pet gadgets more for ourselves than for our pets. Yeah, they’re going to enjoy them (unless it’s the bathing tool), but litterboxes and special feeders? Nah, those are to make our lives easier. We don’t want to have to think about when and how much to feed Fido. We don’t want to think about where to keep that dirty pooper scooper. And we really don’t want to have to think about cleaning up the backyard.
And while we might not be able to talk to our pets like Robert Downey, Jr., we understand them, and we have our own special language with our furry little children. We’ll do whatever we can to keep them happy, and if you’re in the same boat, you’re going to love these pet accessories that will keep them just as happy as they will you.
