If there’s one thing Fur Mom’s have in common, it’s that we’re absolutely obsessed with our pets. We want to spend all our spare time with them, we spend a large chunk of our paycheck on stupid toys they destroy in a nanosecond, and we talk about them nonstop. It’s also a fair guess that we love animal gifts, but sometimes they can be on the cheesy side. Do we really need yet another ceramic cat statute? Probably not. So here are some fun, practical, and even sentimental gifts for the animal love in your life.
$19.99 – Road ID
