When it comes to pets, the word owner doesn’t really cut it. In fact, I much prefer terms like cat mom, or dog dad instead. After all, for most of us, our pets are truly a part of the family, and we couldn’t love them anymore even if they were human. Of course, what that means is celebrating our pets is a pretty important thing. Luckily, you can find all about how to do that in the post below.
Throw them a birthday or adoption bash
Some people may laugh at the idea of a birthday or adoption party for your pet, but not me. In fact, I definitely think they have great value. This is because not only do you get to treat your fur baby, but you also get to partake in the celebration as well, an event that highlights just how grateful you are to have your animal companion in your life.
Of course, when we are grateful for the presence of a pet, we are much more likely to bond with them successfully and do everything they need to stay healthy and happy.
Then there will be some super cute birthday cake photos for social media as well. Just be sure to get them a tasty treat that is dog or cat-friendly, as you actually don’t want a poorly pet as a result of a birthday celebration.
Treat them at Christmas Time
Next, if you celebrate Christmas, it can be a lovely idea to include your pet in this. In fact, many families with dogs and cats purchase a gift for their fur babies to open on December the 25th. Along with the rest of the family.
Of course, it’s wise not to get anything edible and store it under the tree for your pet. The reason being that our pets have a much better sense of smell than us humans. Something that can lead them to get a bit over-excited and munch their way through the wrapping paper and gift box before Xmas morning!
Honor them in the home
Another way you can celebrate your pet is to honor them in the home. In fact, this is becoming quite a trend nowadays.
You can do this is to frame and hang photographs of your pet, alongside ones of your family. Although, some owners are opting for decorative pieces like a dog art canvas to hang on their walls. The reason being that not only provide a gorgeous focal point in the home but are a fabulous modern way to honor your pet as well.
Give them the attention they deserve
Finally, when it comes to celebrating your furbaby, giving them the love and attention that they deserve is crucial. Of course, that means setting aside some time each day to interact with your cat or dog. Whether that is taking them for a walk, or curling up in front of the TV for a snuggle.
You’ll also need to make sure they get the care they need to stay happy and healthy as well. Something that means good quality food, plenty of H20, and regular trips to the vets do a checkup is a smart idea.
