Spoiling Your Fur-Babies This Valentine's Day


Valentine’s Day brings romantic gestures between human sweethearts, but our furry friends deserve some special treatment too. Our pets give us unconditional love all year long, so Valentine’s is the perfect chance to shower them with affection and gifts in return. Skip the chocolate or fancy dinner date (which can actually harm pets) and try these fun ideas for celebrating with your fluffy family members instead.

Surprise Kitty With New Toys

Our cats don't care about roses or candy. But presenting Miss Whiskers with sparkly new balls, catnip-stuffed mice, feather teasers or laser pointers will make her eyes light up with feline joy. Fill a decorative gift bag or box with an assortment of toys and watch your kitten transform into a playful hunter battings and biting her shiny new prey. It's the purrfect way to entertain and energize your cat this Valentine's Day.

Bake Dog-Friendly Treats

Nothing says “I love you” like homemade goodies. Bake your canine Valentine some peanut butter bites, carob chips cookies (safer than chocolate), or pawprint shortbread. Place on a pretty paper doily in a basket along with a new squeaky plush toy bone. Your pooch will lovingly (and quickly) gobble up the edible affections. Feel free to sneak a cookie for yourself too!

Plan Outdoor Adventure Dates

Valentine’s nature walks, trips to the pet supply shop, or visits to dog-friendly eateries make for wonderful shared experiences with your furball. Get out for fresh air and special one-on-one bonding time together. End with a snuggly nap on the couch and let your pet know a little gesture goes a long way when you want to treat your faithful companion on this love-filled holiday.
