    Elegant Pet 1

    This small business is located in Los Angeles and run by owner Pavia, who has filled the shop with outfits, accessories, wigs, and other pooch-approved swag.

    Promising review: "My Boston terrier loved it but mama loved it more." —kreyff

    Get it from Elegant Pet 1 on Etsy for $9 (available in five colors and sizes XS–L).

    2. A mini mushroom scratching pole so your kitto can have something to scratch that's 10/10 adorable to look at — in case you don't have ~mushroom~ to hide an ugly cat post in your apartment.,

    Promising review: "My cats were harassing me to finish this as I was assembling. The fact that I still did under 10 minutes with two cats in the way should tell you how easy it was to assemble. They love it and haven’t left it alone since. One of my kitties really enjoys the artificial grass component and the other loves rubbing his whiskers on the mushroom top. It’s the perfect height for him to do so. This thing is so cute, decently made, and matches my decor aesthetic too. Highly recommend." —Shalece Wyatt

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A set of mini-sneakers your feathered hype beast is gonna love with all their heart and ~sole.~,

    Promising review: "My African Grey parrot loves her sneakers! I untie the laces and then retie two ends together and hang them over a perch or a cage bar. She patiently will link by link pull up her sneaker and take great pleasure in completely destroying them." —Cher M

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $10.99 (available in six pack sizes).

    4. A spiffy chew toy set with a clean geometric aesthetic. These long-lasting toys are sure to be loved by your pup, while keeping your place looking great...even when Fido leaves them in the middle of the living room.

    Wild One

    You can also buy the triangle tug, twist toss, and bolt bite individually — all are made with 100% natural rubber.

    Promising review: "These are substantial and all great quality!" —Vihn N.

    Get all three from Wild One for $36 (available in five colors).

    5. A velvety bed so striking you might wonder if this is really meant for a museum. Forget the Met, *this* is a work of art!

    Cat inside large knit adjustable basket bed

    Mau was started by self-proclaimed "animal lovers" who wanted to design pet products that are as good looking as curated furniture and decor. You can find cat trees, pedestal beds, and cozy hide-outs throughout the shop. BTW, the shop highlights that 5% of their proceeds go to support The Smush Foundation and that for every cat tree purchased, they plant a new tree on the buyer's behalf. Love that.

    Promising review: "As soon as I removed it from the beautiful packaging, my cats were fighting over this basket bed. I know it can take days if not weeks for cats to get super comfortable in a new bed but they took to this immediately. It's also the most attractive cat bed I've seen and especially in our apartment. I highly recommend it. I'm going to be purchasing a second for another room." —Serdaryozturk

    Get it from Mau on Etsy for $79.

    6. A glass blown lava pod and Swiss dome, because one of the best parts about owning fish is creating a seriously dank tank. With these, you're gonna have the best aquarium around!

    Kribensis Glass Arts

    This small business is owned by Christina and Donald, who are both borosilicate glassblowers. Their handblown glassworks include jewelry, home decor, and tank decor and their shop is in Marathon, Florida.

    Promising review: "This is such a beautiful (and functional) piece for your fry or shrimp. The maker sent me multiple pictures during the process of creating it and clearly takes joy in it. They also made sure that the specs and coloration were to my liking. I LOVED the whole process, from buying to installation. Thank you!" —Ariana Luchsinger

    Get the lava pod for $46 and the dome for $36, both from Kribensis Glass Arts on Etsy.

    7. A fabric pool float that'll make your games of fetch at the lake far more fun. Summertime is so close your dog practically smells it.,

    Promising review: "This duck is my boy's absolute favorite water toy when we go to the lake! It may not be the most durable, but regardless of how many rips or tears it has, it always remains afloat! Highly recommend! It's the best water toy!" —Kelly Oehler

    Get it from Amazon for $7.20+ (available in three styles).

    8. A snack puzzle board for entertaining your wascally wabbit.

    This toy is also great for guinea pigs and other small pets!

    Promising review: "Both my rabbits love this! It only takes them a minute or so to clear the board, but I can tell they get excited when they see me filling it up. We use dried papaya, raisins, and herb leaves from the garden as treats. They either dig the tops off or lift them with their mouths." —buggnlugzz

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two styles).

    9. A soothing behavioral aid toy with a faux heartbeat that's gonna be your puppy's ~dream~ toy and help *you* finally get to sleep while crate training.,

    Promising review: "My partner and I recently got a 4-month-old Italian greyhound puppy and this has been great. We slept with the stuffed animal a few nights before picking up our puppy and placed it in his crate before he arrived. After playing with us and exploring his new home he walked into his crate and curled up against it and went right to sleep. He slept right through the first night with no issue. Today is week two and the batteries are still going strong. I plan on buying one for my sister who will be getting a puppy in the next few months. This is cute and functional." —Jeb

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in four colors).

    10. Or a purring cat toy that'll soothe your anxious sweetheart by giving them the sensation of curling up next to another purring pal.,

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

    Get it from Amazon for $14.10.

    11. A cup noodle hideout sure to make your littlest critter's enclosure so cute you could just gobble them up!

    Love Drizzles

    This craft studio is in Orange, California. It's a family-run business that specializes in hamster home decor!

    Promising review: "I love it! It’s such a perfect size for my hammy." —PastelMizuki

    Get it from Love Drizzles on Etsy for $23.99.

    12. A Ripple Rug — an interactive play mat (made out of recycled plastic bottles!) that'll allow your cat to hide, sleep, scratch, groom, and pounce. Your cat will love playing in this, and it'll be equally entertaining to watch.,

    This has a non-skid bottom, so your cats can be as aggressive as they want without it slipping under them. It's also a great option for multi-cat households.

    Promising review: "Straight out of the box, all five of my cats took to it, RIGHT AWAY! If only I was the genius who would have thought of this product, but I'm ecstatic nonetheless. I have a very timid cat who gets pushed out of everything, as you can see in the group picture (above, left); but later, she got to investigate and played for a good half hour! I can't get her to play with anything alone, so this was huge after seven whole years. I always have to instigate play with her, until this came into our lives today! I am so completely pleased. When she attacks the holes and hears the hook and loop pull, she freaks out and runs circles around it for her next attack. You won't be let down. This is the best entertainment ever, especially for the cat lady and cat dad involved. We hurt from laughing. JUST BUY IT!" —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $43.50.

    13. A pair of matching cardigans – they're gonna make it *very* easy to let everyone at the dog park know which perfect pooch belongs to you. Your family photos are gonna look so, so good this year.

    Human and French bulldog in matching yellow cardigans. Both have cactus prints.
    Fit Frenchie

    This shop is based in Houston, Texas and has enough matching outfits to fill an entire closet!

    Promising review: "This is so friggin' cute and super soft! It fits my pup perfectly and the other is super comfortable on me! We wore them to the park and we got tonssss of people loving it!" —alissa cherry

    Get it from Fit Frenchie on Etsy for $24.99+ (available in pet sizes XS–5XL and one-size-fits-most for their humans).

    14. A sleek aquarium tank – it's sure to improve your fish kid's quality of life, although they may get jealous when they realize you're staring at their sweet digs instead of their own glorious gills.,

    Promising review: "This has been amazing so far!!!!! It's great! My kids love it. Easy quick assembly/no directions needed. The filter is super super quiet, I can't hear a thing. We have two goldfish in there. I recommend leaving the filter off for the first few days, so enough bacteria builds up to make the water good for your goldfish. As soon as I turned the filter back on on day three, the water was so clear and bubbles dissipated — so the filter works very well too! —Robin

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    15. A tug-of-war toy so soft on your dog's chompers you won't have to worry about your K-9 losing a canine while the two of you fight to see who is the alpha. Spoiler alert: it's not you.,

    Fortunately your pup is a fair and loving leader.

    Promising review: "My dogs LOVE to play tug, but one of my girls has not-so-great teeth, so ropes basically end up pulling her little front teeth out and make her bleed. This toy, however, doesn't do that. She can tug and tug and tug and no issues! They get it all stretched out in a line, and then it just bounces right back! When things start to get nuts, I can walk up and just pull this out of all three of their mouths. Whatever it's made out of makes it easier because they don't get their teeth actually embedded in the toy, like they would a rope." —Alicia L. Silva

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in three colors and two sizes).

    16. And a tug-of-war toy that'll suction cup to your floor, giving you some alone time when Spot doesn't want to stop playing.,

    Promising review: "We bought this for our 7-month-old labradoodle and he absolutely loves it. He is a big fan of tug of war so this toy is great to just leave on the ground and let him have at it. It certainly helps distract and burn his puppy energy. You can hide treats in it as well which was a bonus. This also comes with two sticky pads for extra suction. I give 5 stars all around!!" —P. Bom

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    17. A willow-branch ball your own Easter Bunny (or Easter Chinchilla) would love to find in its basket.

    Rabbit beside natural wooden stick ball

    Promising review: "I recently got this toy for my 7-month-old dwarf rabbit and she absolutely loves it! She enjoys tossing it around her cage and chewing on the wood. It's a fantastic toy and I would recommended it to any owner of a rabbit!" —Lynn Palazzolo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    18. A cat feeder that'll encourage your kitty to eat more slowly while also engaging their natural hunting instincts. Grab these and you and your cat will have a game of hide-and-seek going 24/7.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I started a hunting system for my cats when I felt like they were getting lethargic during the winter. One of our cats was overweight because he would sit and eat the dry food left out when he was bored. With these he'll "hunt," eat one, and not eat again until he's ready to go hunting. I've written a full review on this clever feeding system before because I refuse to stop recommending it (#1)!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    19. An Aquaponic Ecosystem so you can grow herbs...from your fish tank! Your fish's waste fertilizes the plants above, while the plants keep the water clean down below.

    This comes with microgreen seeds, Beta Bowl Plus, beta food, and a grow medium.

    Promising review: "I have had this tank for over a year and I still love it. It's super low maintenance. I have had a goldfish in the tank before and now a betta; both have been very happy in the tank. I have not had any issues with algae or plants not growing etc. Everything worked smoothly." —Raquel

    Get it from Amazon for $78.24.

    20. A wicker house or round bed for guaranteeing even your pets' products enhance your cottagecore vibes.


    Promising reviews: "I was pleasantly surprised! This is a very well made house for a cat. It also came with cushions! My kitty loves it. ❤" —Katmaus

    "SHE LOVED IT! I highly recommend this for small dogs that like to curl up in a circle. We also added a fleece basket to wrap her snug in her new bed." —womanbeshopping

    Get the house for $72.99 and the bed for $34.99, both from Amazon.

    21. A fishing kit your own catfish is gonna adore.,

    Promising review: "Both my kittens enjoy the toy attached to a stick and ring. They liked chasing after the loose toys. It's been a couple months and they (amazingly enough) haven't gotten sick of these toys yet." —Julia

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    22. A patio lounge that'll give your BFF the perfect shady spot to snooze while you lay out by the pool., Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this on a whim because my dog loves to lay outside. It took about a week of him staring at it and a very warm day before he started using it. Now he lays in it everyday. It is very stylish and matches perfectly with my patio furniture. My fur baby weighs in around 80 pounds, so this is big dog friendly. And you can grab a piece of fabric to make it even prettier." —Chloe K

    Get it from Amazon for $224.99 (available in three colors).

    23. A reptile vine — a brilliantly simple piece to throw in your snake's enclosure, giving her plenty of surface space to roam around without making the cage look cluttered.


    Promising review: "I love this product! So does my large corn snake. I soaked the suction cups in hot water, as suggested by another reviewer, and they adhere well to the glass. My snake climbs on this vine every day – it adds a layer to her habitat, giving her more room. It looks nice in the terrarium as well." —Dawn Lukas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two sizes).

    24. A durable tattoo squeaker I have an inkling you and your pup are gonna love a lot.

    Get it from Modern Beast for $24.

    25. A ball launcher for making sure your dog (and your rotator cuff) enjoy a day at the dog park.


    Promising review: "I don’t know who has more fun my dog or me? LOL. I’ve used this for fetch every day for over a week now. It’s a ton of fun! I like that you can pick the ball up with the end of the gun. It saves your back and while my dog isn’t a slobber hound like others I’ve’s nice you don’t have to touch the ball after it’s dog slimed. Get the mini model for small tennis balls and the large gun shoots conventional size tennis balls! Get it! You and our dog will thank me!" —workoutnut2010

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    26. A hanging macrame cat bed, because your kitto deserves some bold boho furniture just as much as the next Instagram influencer., Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    This includes all the hardware you'll need to hang it, the macrame hanger, and a cushion. You can see my cat (above, right) using the bed above a bunch of fall decor – were it not for the hanging ability, I wouldn't have had room for a bed!

    Promising review: "This is worth every penny! My kitten loves sleeping and playing in it! The bed is really good quality and it's the perfect fit!" —Rachel Eggers

    Get it from Amazon for $46.99 (available with and without bed pad).

    27. A natural grass bird hut that'll blend in with the trees in your yard, welcoming all the backyard birds your heart desires.

    House shaped grass hanging home with two hole entrances

    Promising review: "I have had a Carolina Wren living on my front porch for a few months. She was in a coconut house, but I wanted to find something that seemed warmer with a smaller opening. I received this house and put it on the back patio. She instantly took to it! She has been sleeping in it every night ever since. Mine arrived a little damaged (the right entrance was cracked) but I was able to make it work!" —Amanda B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    28. A stainless-steel mirror with a rope perch sure to delight vain birds who know you bought them for their good looks. I mean, they're not wrong!,

    Promising review: "It was hard to find a full-sized bird mirror for our cockatiel. This is well-made, thick, and the nicely polished stainless steel provides great full color reflections! It seems to be his new favorite perch! It's a really great price for what you are getting!" —Ashley L.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98.

    29. And at the ~tail~ end of our list, a magnetic mossy hideaway that's gonna make your cold blooded cutie's enclosure look seriously cool.

    The Reptiles of Eden

    This small business is run by Caitlin in Lancaster, Ohio. All pet enclosure products are handmade and custom orders are available. The shop has bridges, hammocks, and reptile hides.

    Promising review: "I love it. It's very well made and the magnetic attachment works perfectly. My Kunashir Rat Snake loves it more than I do, though! She appreciates being able to hide up high. She can peek out of it and watch what's going on when she isn't basking up on a perch. She even curls up on top of it sometimes! I couldn't be happier with this purchase." —Erin

    Get it from The Reptiles of Eden on Etsy for $25+ (available in two sizes).
