Pet Project

It’s been awhile since I’ve highlighted some fun gift options for your pet, or for a pet lover in your circle. Without further ado, here are five fab finds. Enjoy!

Pet PortraitsCustom Pet Portraits – $53+ @ A Brush With Fine Art
Artist Sharon Lamb certainly has a knack for detailing the unique features of your favourite animal – her stunning portraits look so real you could touch them! Whether you want a reminder of a pet while at work or your cottage or if you’re commemorating a pet that’s recently passed, these custom artworks are available in a range of standard sizes, making framing a cinch once your one-of-a-kind piece lands on your doorstep. Simply submit a photo and be amazed by the so-real-you-could-pet-it artwork that results.

Carnival Round Hummingbird FeederCarnival Hummingbird Feeder – $56.94 @
I love the idea of attracting ‘wild pets’ to your yard. Over the years, I’ve become quite familiar with birdies, rabbits, and deer making regular visits to my home – and that was without doing anything in particular to attract them. If you’d love to see some gorgeous, glittering hummingbirds flock to your yard this summer, hang up a pretty hummingbird feeder and welcome some new critters into your life. A great choice for those of you that aren’t pet fanatics, but love a bit of nature.

Gatsby Dog CoatGatsby Dog Coat – $110+ @ Legitimutt
Although our doggie friends come equipped with a year-round fur coat, that doesn’t mean prancing around in the cold Canadian fall / winter / spring seasons is exactly their cup of tea. If you’re worried about Fido’s body temp, make sure he’s bundled up in one of these snuggly, stable blanket-inspired pet jackets for a snug, non-slip fit and easy leash attachment. Not only will your pet stay toasty warm, they’ll look awfully stylish as they strut down your street once the colder weather hits. Shipping FYI, is a flat $25 – so go to town while perusing the fun Legitimutt store.

Pineapple Home Fish Tank Ornament
Spongebob Pineapple Fish Tank Ornament – $12.99 @
How about our gilled friends out there? Or for those folks who can’t tolerate furry pets? My family owned a fish tank for years and it was always a blast switching up the decor to go with the times. If you’ve got a fish habitat to outfit, consider something fun and pop culture quirky to spice things up – like thi Spongebob Squarepants Pineapple, referencing the show’s famous opening credit sequence: Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? With this gift, it could be your fish!

Cat CribCat Crib – $29.95
Cats really love their secret hideaways – but in small spaces, it can be hard to find a suitable place to set up a cat condo or whatever nook they love to stuff themselves into. The Cat Crib is an ingenious space-saving solution that gives Fluffy the privacy he wants, without taking up precious space or creating a serious eyesore in your home. Simply affix it to the chair, table, or other space of your choice – as long as it’s got four legs, it’s a cinch to install and secure. If your furry friend is carrying a little extra weight; never fear: the Cat Crib is designed to hold a pet of up to 19 lbs. Secret snuggles and sleeps are just a box away!
