    1. A portable dog paw washer that'll keep your pup from tracking mud throughout the house post-walk when your pug found his way into every SINGLE puddle you walked past.

    3. A snout soother stick for giving your dog's dry, crusty nose the relief it doggone deserves! It's not easy work sniffing around for the *perfect* stick to carry home, after all.

    4. A super strong plush duck sure to survive your enthusiastic chewer's chompers better than any toy you've owned before. We're not ducking around – this thing is TOUGH.

    5. A handheld fur vacuum so stinkin' powerful you're gonna forget what lint rollers even are. The thought of a vacuum that actually works during shedding season makes me furiously happy.

    6. A dishwasher-safe raised cat food bowl that'll give your cat proper posture while eating, which is waaay easier on their digestive system.

    7. A collapsable cat bed sure to be loved by your cat through all of his moods, whether he wants his bed open to keep track of everything going on around him *or* would prefer being tucked away from all your human nonsense.

    8. Or an elevated cat bed that'll give Frisky the ~raise~ she deserves after all the hard work she does around the house. She knows what she's worth, even if she's always caught napping on the job.

    9. A lawn repair formula made from mulch, seed, and soil amendments to help reverse the TBH impressive amount of damage your pets have bestowed upon your lawn.

    10. A pair of pet grooming glove for pet parents who want their lovable mutt looking like a show dog worthy of Westminster with just a brush of their hand.

    A pair of the gloves with a thick coat of fur being pulled from them. The gloves are soft on top and have plastic bumps to pull loose hair while petting.

    11. A pack of matatabi chew sticks – matatabi is a plant native to Japan and a catnip alternative, which is gonna be great if you've spent your savings on catnip treasures your cat couldn't care less about. The best part? The solid stick design helps keep their teeth clean.

    12. A cleanup kit complete with a rake, handled container, and waste bags that'll make cleaning up after your beloved dog easier on your back...and your gag reflex.

    13. A durable, floating Chuckit! Ultra Ball so you can play endless games of fetch with Fido, without covering your hands in the gunk from slimy tennis balls.

    14. A pack of catnip-infused felt balls sure to satisfy your catnip-crazed kitto without the mess loose catnip leaves behind.

    15. A nail file board — literally an emery board for dogs — for persnickety pups who HATE having their nails trimmed and for the sake of your wood floors, that *need* your dog's nails trimmed.

    16. An enclosed litter box is gonna save your apartment from the site of a litter box. Whoever designed this lovely piece of furniture deserves a gold star, and probably another cat.

    17. A genius cat toy guaranteed to keep your little feline entertained for HOURS. It's time to trick that stoic kitty into becoming a dancing queen!

    18. A pet hair broom with rubber bristles that'll actually be able to pull the years of hidden fur your vacuum never grabs (no matter how many times you plug in that clunker and run it over the carpet). Who would have thought a carpet broom would be the fastest way to de-shed your stuff?

    19. A purring cat toy sure to ease your anxious bud by giving them the sensation of curling up next to another purring pal.

    20. Musher's Secret paw wax — a stain-free topical ointment formulated with all-natural ingredients that can protect your pup's paws from irritants like salt, heat, snow, ice, and sand.

    21. An aloe vera and oatmeal dander-reducing spray for keeping your cat's coat soft, shiny, and free of flakes. Sure, your cat thinks he's doing a mighty fine job on his own, but his tongue can't exactly condition dry skin or reduce redness – this will clear that up lickety-split!

    22. A tearstain comb, because your cute white dog looks like he's going through a RUFF time with those dark tearstains down his snout! Add this to your grooming day routine and the only tearstains you'll have to worry about are your own – this thing is that satisfying!

    23. A plush log toy even your most shy and ~squirrely~ pupper is gonna adore.

    24. A leakproof dog water bottle with a brilliant bowl you simply tip to fill. Did you just find something that'll be easy to carry *and* keep your pup hydrated when you're both out all day? You sure did. Go ahead and drink that in.

    25. A window hammock can give your favorite bird watcher the perfect perch, without cluttering your floor space with a cat condo.

    26. A cat cult favorite three-tier roller toy with a tried-and-true design cats love, for keeping lil' Whiskers entertained all day.

    27. A Wobble Wag Giggle ball sure to have your whole family laughing every time your dog starts rolling it around. It has grippy bits to hold with their mouth and paws, is easy to clean, and even makes sounds!

    28. A waterless cat bath to use on your beloved feline, who would love nothing more than to scratch your eyes out if you dared try to put them in an actual bath. This leave-in foam keeps them clean and even moisturizes your kitto's skin!

    29. A pack of 120 poop bags, because always having a good stock of these is the first rule of pup parenthood. In fact, maybe I'll grab two packs.

    30. An interactive obstacle puzzle toy is gonna stimulate your pet and entertain them while they eat, to prevent them from eating more than they should out of boredom. Plus, reviewers say it helps to reduce nervous behavior!

    31. A rubber bristle brush you can use wet or while scrubbing shampoo into their fur during a bath. This soothing tool helps pull out grime and loose fur, so your dog's coat can shine bright.

    32. And a wrinkle paste to clean up tear stains and underneath wrinkles, keeping your K-9 clean in (basically) every nook and cranny.

    33. A pack of 100 ear cleaning wipes is gonna clear up the gunk in your pet's ears, which hopefully means they're gonna finally hear you when you tell them to stop jumping on the sofa.

    34. A bag of premium clumping litter sure to finally put an end to your hunt for litter your critter actually likes. This clumping litter is 99% dust-free, hypo-allergenic, and great in multi-cat households.

    35. An Aquapaw Slow Treater that'll keep your fluffer in the bath long enough to finally get her fluffy! Just throw some peanut butter or other pasty treat in the grooves and let her lick away while you scrub her up!

    36. And a Furbo, so you can give your dog voice commands, throw them treats, and keep playtime going even when you aren't at home.
