While the Westminster Kennel Club was crowning CJ, a German Shorthaired Pointer, as its top dog earlier this week, millions of American households took comfort in knowing no other animal could ever be loved as much as their own dog or cat.
From a faithful four-legged friend to fur babies and granddoggies, many of us feel our pets are true family members. To celebrate the warm connection between humans and their dogs and cats, tomorrow is National Love Your Pet Day. Explore these suggestions from Hammacher Schlemmer that will help you give your own animal the unique gift of the extra comfort it deserves.
This Warming Cat Bed generates a gentle heat that’s especially soothing to older or arthritic pets. A Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, its integrated heater produces a mild, radiant warmth to ensure your cat or small dog always has a comfortable place to lie. The cover is easily machine-washable, too.
Mattresses sold today sit higher above the floor, making it difficult for smaller or older dogs to join you in bed for a restful sleep. This Pet Ramp and Staircase provides a means for small, older, or arthritic pets to reach sofas or beds without putting undue stress on their joints. The two-step staircase converts into a ramp in seconds, plus it folds down for ease of storage. We also offer a three-step version.
To guard your chairs and sofas against fur, scratches, moisture, and other pet messes, we recommend the Non-Slip Furniture Protecting Pet Covers. Made from plush, deep-pile velvet, you need not shoo your faithful friend to the floor nor follow behind with a vacuum cleaner. The quilted, padded sections provide so much comfort, you might consider these covers as a unique gift idea even for a petless friend or human family member.
Recent statistics show 37% of U.S. households have at least one dog and 30% have one or more cats. If you’re lucky enough to enjoy these unique gifts of unconditional love, show your pet a little extra care tomorrow and break out a special treat for your favorite furry friend.
