Animals = Earth angels.

Spoil them from from head to tail with some of these must-have pet products:

1. A coconut-fiber ball your rabbit would love to tell some-bunny about if they had the ability to speak. It's perfect for playtime and will help floss their teeth at the same time!


Get it from Amazon for $5.95+ (also available in a pack of three).

2. Protective wax to guard your pet's precious little paws from snow, rain, ice, etc. It'll act as a barrier between their delicate pads and the ground, and it’s packed with vitamin E that'll moisturize and help keep their paws healthy.


I can't tell you how many times I've had to sit on the floor with my dog after he finished running around the yard in the snow to pick out tiny balls of ice and snow from in between his paw pads. If I had known this product existed I would've picked it up YEARS ago. It has over 3K five-star reviews on Amazon, so it's truly pet-owner approved.

Get it from Amazon for $12.75+ (also available in packs of 2–5 and 60g, 200g, and 1 lb).

3. A rainbow cat charmer, great for entertaining both you and your kitty at the same time. Win-win!


Did anyone else have one of those ribbon dancer toys as a kid? This magical product reminds me of that in the best way. Think of all the fun you and your cat will have playing with this rainbow charmer!

Get it from Amazon for $3.49+ (also available as a pack of two).

4. An aquarium volcano so your fish can unknowingly re-create the initiation sequence from Finding Nemo. Say it with me: shark bait, hoo ha ha!


This decoration comes with a red LED light to create the look of an eruption as well as an air stone to add more oxygen into the water.

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

5. A squirrel-hiding toy that your dog (and you!) will quickly become obsessed with.


Seriously, pups LOVE this thing! It has 8,500 positive reviews on Amazon — which means a lot of people took the time to review a dog toy, guys. Eighty-five hundred! It's available in four different sizes, so your furry bundle of joy can find the one that perfectly fits their needs. Read more on why dogs love the Outward Hound Hide a Squirrel Puzzle.

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in four styles).

6. A La-Z-Boy orthopedic sofa dog bed that'll have your pup feeling like royalty while also providing them with some much-needed support from its ComfortCore Gel base. If only I could get one in a human size...

My beloved golden retriever, Luke (pictured above), recently turned 10 and has started having some issues with his hips. As a puppy he'd never pay attention to dog beds, since I got him this La-Z-Boy he's had a change of heart. It's super sturdy but perfectly soft, and he loves lounging in it.

Get it from Chewy for $92.70.

7. A Kong Extreme Dog Toy so strong, even the toughest of chewers won't be able to destroy it.


My dog can really tear into toys like it's nobody's business. However, he (and thousands of dogs all over the country) can't destroy this Kong Extreme Dog Toy. This toy is so amazing that 6,320 Amazon customers have given it a five-star review! Read our full review of the Kong Extreme Dog Toy.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes M–2XL).

8. A soothing toy to help your furry friend cope with loneliness and anxiety in the cutest way possible.

This stuffed animal features a realistic pulsing heartbeat and a battery-operated heat source that will help keep your uptight dog or cat calm and collected.

11. A treat-dispensing ball that'll have your furry pal begging you to play at all times (sorry).


Looking for a versatile toy sure to have your pup jumping for joy? This is it, my friends! This breathable rubber ball is ideal for playing fetch, tossing, and tugging — it's everything your dog wants in a toy!

Get it from Amazon for $4.95+ (available in five sizes).

Get it from Petco for $129.99.

13. An interactive ball launcher, so dogs can play fetch all day (even if you aren't home!).


I openly admit to loving my dog more than any other living being in my life. I'm sure many of you feel the same, so you know how heartbreaking it is when your pup is begging for a game of fetch but you're simply too caught up in something else to stop and play with them. This gadget is about to solve that problem — see ya', guilt!

Get it from Amazon for $89+ (available in small or large).

14. A seven-piece set of swinging toys your bird will immediately want to ~tweet~ about. The bright colors will attract your feathered friend and encourage them to play all day!

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL).

16. A spirit jersey adorned with famous Disney dogs, perfect for any pup who could use an extra ounce of magic in their wardrobe.


Get it from shopDisney for $24.95 (available in sizes S–XL).

17. An aquarium castle that'll leave your precious fish convinced they actually belong to Queen Elizabeth II rather than a commoner like you.


Get it from Amazon for $10.67+ (available in small and large sizes).

18. A hat and sweater set to upgrade your beloved ferret's style and have them lookin' fabulous this winter. Christmas card photo shoot, anyone?


Note that this set is delivered in a random assortment of colors and styles. Many reviewers also said they dressed their small dogs in this getup — so don't feel like you can only treat your ferret to this adorable look.

Get it from Amazon for $13.72.

19. A BarkBox filled with '90s gems your pup can enjoy while you marathon through Saved by the Bell...again.


I treated my dog to this set recently and he was SO excited to rifle through the toys and select his favorite as soon as the box was opened. It's so fun to see him playing with items that look like things I loved from my childhood!

Get it from Amazon for $36.

20. A handheld ball launcher for when you and your doggo head to the park for some one-on-one playtime.


Get it from Amazon $7.95+ (available in sizes 14S–26L).

21. And a pet bed that looks like a tart, so your snuggle buddy will always be warm while also looking like a ~snack~.

I am GUSHING over these pet beds. They're made of soft faux fur and have a foam core, so they're as soft as it gets. However, the best part is how each style replicates food. While the toast one is my personal favorite, the beds also come shaped as a banana, a hot dog bun, or a tart!

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four styles).
