Top 5 Gift Ideas for Your Cat

I adopted a kitten right before the holidays from the Humane Society. I think by now Jelly might be considered a cat. I never knew I could love a cat so much. I even researched what it means if my cat’s tail is in the upright position. It means the cat is content. If your cat looks at you directly in the eye and blinks slowly, it is called a cat kiss. You can even return or initiate a cat kiss. In the wild cats communicate mostly by body language. So here is a top 5 list of gift ideas for your cat from someone who tries to talk to theirs: 1) Good Kitty Gift Basket $39.95 This basket is filled with toys and treats. It also contains a brush, bowl, and a fancy collar. This basket will provide hours of entertainment for your furry friend. 2) Cat Treat Jar $29.95 This is a very cute jar that can be used to hold cat treats or people treats. 3) Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul $44.95 This is a great gift for a cat and their owner. It contains cat toys, a mouse scratch pad, a fuzzy pom pom tail, Almond Roca and Hathaway’s Sour Cherries in an attractive top-stitched red leather tote.  It also includes the book Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul. 4) Kitty Gift Set $29.95 This gift includes a very cute food bowl, 3 catnip toys, and a vinyl mat. 5) Cat PawPrint Desktop Frame $44.95 This gift is really a gift for a cat owner and not a cat. This frame allows...

Good Dog

I was just looking for some dog gifts on our website and I came across Good Dog Gift Basket. It reminded me of the other they when I was playing with my roommate’s dogs. First of all, I recently moved in with a roommate that has 3 dogs and a cat, and I came from a family that had no pets at all, so you can imagine I’ve had a bit of adjusting to do! On my first day of meeting the new pets, the dogs were just barking and barking, which kind of scared me away a bit. The second time I saw them though, they were much more polite and actually were trying to interact with me. Now that I’ve been there two weeks, I’ve learned some of their habits and how to interact with them. So, a few days ago, I was home alone and bored out of my mind. So what do I decide to do? I start teasing the dogs! Hehehe (evil laugh). I hid behind the door and as soon as one of the dogs (named Sky) came closer to the door, I jumped out and screamed, “RAH!” Sky started barking like crazy and ran away. I then hid by the door again and waited for him to come back (which he did) and once again I jumped out and yelled, “RAH!” Once again, he runs off and I just hid by the door waiting for him to come back, but he never did. I peeked out just in time to see him running, so I hid again and before I could get...

The Cutest Dog Treat Jar

Believe it or not, before I was employed at GiftTree, I was afraid of dogs. And by afraid, I mean, run as fast as you can when you see one, even if it’s a tiny chihuahua. Go ahead have your laugh. I loved cats, but dogs were, (please note: “WERE”), just not my thing. When I got hired at GiftTree I noticed many of my coworkers had doggie treats on their desks but I didn’t give it much thought. Later that week I was on the phone placing an order and next thing I know I feel something wet pushing my elbow up. As I turned around there is this big golden-doodle staring at me with his puppy eyes begging for a treat. Trying hard not to panic, I politely patted the dog and of course commented on how cute he was (if you saw him you would say the same, he is the cutest). The following week and every day of that week he would escape from his “office” and run to me doing the same old trick, pushing my elbow up with his wet nose begging for treats. At that time I didn’t have any treats on my desk and soon enough he figured out that I wasn’t going to give him any so he stopped visiting me right at the time that I started to adore dogs. A few weeks later, our Director of Customer Service got a Yellow Lab who we often refer to as the “Call Center Dog” and the Director of Business Development in the office next door, got a St. Bernard and...

Pet Gifts

GiftTree has a large number of pet gifts. Some of them are strictly for cats or dogs and some are for cats or dogs and their owners. A couple of my favorite gift baskets are the Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul Gift Basket, Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul Gift Basket, Good Kitty Gift Basket, Good Dog Gift Basket, Go Organic Cat Kit, Go Organic Dog Kit, Kitty Gift Set, and the Cat’s Meow Travel Bowl. The Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul Gift Basket is value-priced at $39.95. It contains five mice toys stuffed with cat nip, a mouse scratch pad with a fuzzy red pom pom tail, a generous amount of Almond Roca for the cat owner, and Hathaway’s Sour Cherries in an attractive top-stitched red leather tote. This gift basket also includes the Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul book by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Marty Becker, Carol Kline and Amy Shojai. The Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul Gift Basket is little bit like The Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul Gift Basket. The Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul Gift Basket contains Hathaway’s Sour Cherries, a generous amount of Almond Roca in an attractive top-stitched red leather tote that can later be used to store dog toys or hold paperwork and mail. For the pooch, the basket includes three paw print tennis balls and a colorful Frisbee.
