Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

Usually new catnip pillows if I can find the good ones. I'll wrap them up and let them tear them open. Might splurge on a new scratching post this year though...

Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

Yeah our family gets our dogs usually a treat or some kind of bone that they wouldn't normally have as a present. I try getting them something as well. Our dogs are the same on Christmas morning, they both are curious and love getting into and playing with the wrapping paper.

Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

After buying cat toys to have them ignored with clear disdain by the resident cat, I've given up buying presents for him. I see no point in spending the money when he won't play with them. If he enjoyed them, I would, though.

You mean it isn't normal to get Christmas gifts for your pets?

Every one of them in my house always gets toys or treats under the tree.

Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

We usually buy Dallie one of those big pet stockings, with the chew toys, treats and little stuffed animals. She loves them, particularly the stuffed animals.

Any suggestions on what I can get my cats? Last year I spent over $100 on a cat tower as a combined Xmas/10th birthday present for Miss Chicken and she barely uses it.
I presume the tower is a scratching post covered in carpeting? Try rubbing catnip on it!

You might find this interesting

Interestingly enough, not all cats respond to catnip. An estimated 25% of cats do not respond to catnip. Why is this? If it turns out that both your pet’s mother and father did NOT respond to catnip then neither will your pet. On the other hand, if your cat’s mother and father respond to catnip, then so will your cat. Additionally, if either one of the cat's parents respond to catnip, then so will your cat. This means that the ability to be affected by catnip is a dominant trait. Thus, it is more likely that cats will be affected by catnip than not. However, if your cat is younger than 8 weeks old, this is not a good indicator of whether catnip will affect it, as kittens are unable to respond to it at a young age.
and

Did you know that most Australian cats are not susceptible to catnip? Strange enough, the reason for this is because domestic cats in Australia are bred from a very small original population. These original cats did not respond to catnip, so neither do the cats they gave birth to. Those poor Australian cats do not know what they are missing.

Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

We buy our cats toys every year, usually something with catnip inside or some sort of interactive toy. Last year they got a catnip tackle bag. We put it on the floor and let them discover it.

The cat generally gets treats and something with catnip in it. The dog gets treats and a little stuffed animal. Like J's dog, he loves the little stuffed animals.

Re: Do you buy Christmas presents

We normally get my dog something every year. Usually a nice, extra large rawhide bone. One year, we got her one that was 3ft long, and seeing as she was still rather young (maybe 3 years old), it was fun to watch her drag it around. I've been looking for one that big each year to no avail. She still gets large ones for Christmas, just not one that large...
