Pet lovers are a hugely passionate bunch. Just try telling them their dog shouldn’t a wear sweater and boots in the winter or their cat doesn’t need a monthly subscription box filled with kitty nip and toys. Chances are you’re going to get a glare and possibly other hand gestures we need not mention.

We know because we’re that hugely passionate bunch and have zero qualms about buying ugly Christmas sweaters every year for our pets and watching them be adorable on pet cams when we can’t be with them.

From interactive toys to fluffy feather sweaters, we’ve rounded up a litter of paws-itively fetching and unique gifts to spoil the animals in our lives with love until the next holiday rolls back around again.
