Yesterday i went out and got my pussy his christmas present.
He got some Fancy Feast Broths, Fancy Feast Royale Banquet, 2 packets of Temptations, some cat milk, and a new catnip toy. All wrapped together under the tree with his name on it.
(all of these he does not get on a regular basis)
Any one else go christmas shopping for their furry family member?

Isis always gets some new cat toys and I usually get her some fancy turkey flavoured cat food for her Christmas dinner

Don't actually have a pet at the moment but in the past my furry chums have always had a gift or two under the tree and oh... their gifts that they gave me.... always knew EXACTLY what I wanted!
When the cats were young they always got a box of ping pong balls plus something else they would enjoy.
There would be a special whole little fish (caught especially by my Dad) for Christmas lunch too!

I always bought our dog presents for Christmas, until we started having kids and now she gets some pigs ears if she's lucky .

Yep. Soccer ball here. She loves helping us unwrap pressies so I got one for her to unwrap.

Yes of course. My girls plan out what to buy our pets.
Santa even leaves them something under the tree too

Yes of course!
But they're cats so they don't appreciate it.

Usually a toy or ball.
CountryMel - Ringo bought me a book and the most frivolous of aprons this year.
He always buys my stocking stuffers.
Of course I have to wrap - no opposable thumbs and all that.

Sure do!! the dogs open their own, and love it. Like countrymel, mine give the best presents too!
My pets also buy my MILs pets christmas presents, and hers buy presents for ours too, all wrapped nicely under the tree... Its very cute, but I suspect it will change when my MIL has grandchildren to spoil instead though!

All wrapped and under the tree, have put the tag on a long piece of ribbon for puss to chase so the gift itself is a toy hehehe.
However he's slack I don't think he got us anything, maybe he went in with the 15mo on my present lol
Ps gettheetoanunnery -- Ringo is on my wait list of cat names!!!! Adorable!

Of course. My dog loves shoving her nose in other people's presents so she needs one of her own. This year we've got her a toy with a replaceable squeaker, and it came with a spare so it might actually last more than a week.

Yes, mine are getting a soccer ball-sized Enduro ball, it was expensive so its for all of them. I'm also buying one of them his own cushion because he likes to put his head on one. The cars will just get extra wet food. They dont really play with toys and different food upsets the Maine Coons tummy. But they love the little packs of Dine so they're getting an extra one each.

My cat's christmas present this year is that we have decided to let the senile old beast live despite the fact that she spends the nights yelling and we have been sleeping like new parents for months now.
Nah, I jest. She's a lovely senile old beast.
We don't do pet presents though.

Yep! We even bought a toy today for my brothers newly rescued bird!
Posted 21 December 2012 - 12:43 PM
No pet presents here. I just buy them toys when they need them. Maybe when DD is a bit older and wants to get them something.

Yep, Jazz has a Christmas stocking treat bag this year
Posted 21 December 2012 - 12:47 PM
Normally, yes! But this year mom sent presents to them from the US ! Nothing like international delivery for dogs. Our main motivation, however selfish, for gifting to the pups is to give them a distraction while we open presents

Funny you should ask as I have just got home from the dog's beauty parlour where I bought them a new collar each and an assortment of dog chews.
I also make up mini bags of treats for the other dogs in my extended family.
They have a stocking each that says "Don't forget the dog" so I wouldn't.

Yep! My pooch is getting some doggy bon bons this year. Although, I must say, everyday is Christmas for my hound, given the lifestyle he lives. He is living the dream!
