Sometimes I am so suprised by the marketing ploys going on at this time of year I have to share, so, I give you this:
Seriously, people give cards to their pets?! What you can’t see here (and believe me, it almost killed me in the shop) was the little poem underneath which said something like ‘You are the most darling, loving cat and the love for you will go on forever..’ I had to stop, the tears ya know?
I totally get the idea behind buying your pet a present, it’s something fun for them to unwrap, chew the crap out of/eat/sleep in etc and gives them some fun, but unless your pet enjoys opening up a hallmark card, reading the stirring words inside, and then placing it lovingly on the mantlepiece so it can gaze at it as it dozes off then I think it might just be lost on them dontcha think?
Stick to buying them chew toys or gigantic beds.
