Accessories For Pets
Spare no expense?
It never ceases to amaze me when I come across the statistics regarding the vast amounts of money we spend each year on our pets.
We're talking about billions of dollars; $66.75 billion in 2016 for the US alone. This in a sluggish economy! I guess it just proves how much we love them, pamper them, provide the best care we know how.
Our pets enrich our lives… They give us unconditional love and affection… no matter how cold and harsh the outside world can be to us. Most of us consider our pets family members, and spare no expense to keep them healthy, safe and happy.
But some of the pet accessories and high-tech gadgets available today are truly a waste of money. We share our practical recommendations on accessories for pets and warnings below.
We live on 3 fenced acres inside a national Forest, and provide a comfortable and loving home for our own beloved pets: four cats and two dogs.
Oh yeah, we also have a rather large gopher tortoise living right outside our back door. MamaCat thinks it is her duty to guard him.
UPDATE: We have a sweet new puppy, pic to the left.
UPDATE #2: Bandit grew up and now we have puppies!
Anyway, back to work! We bring you three articles we think you will find very interesting and useful as you ponder which pet items make sense... and which are nonsense.
In our research for this page, we came across lots of silly, stupid or horribly overpriced pet accessories, gadgets and toys. Enjoy the tour!
