    1. A ChomChom roller that makes cleaning up fur super quick and easy, so it isn't ~quite~ so obvious which spot on the couch is Fluffy's.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good."—Stephanie

    2. An ultrasonic squeaker toy so you two can binge watch Worst Cooks in America together and still catch all of the dialogue—no more interrupting squeaks!

    Promising review: "This toy has quickly become my 16-week-old lab's favorite toy...and I am SO thankful for that! She loves squeaky toys best of all, and will sit there and squeak them incessantly (especially while I'm on the phone). This toy gives her the satisfaction of the squeaky sound, but humans can't hear it! A definite win-win where EVERYONE is happy!"—Banaszewski

    Price: $9.99 (available in two styles)

    3. A baby gate, because while, yes, they may be made for babies, they're also great for keeping any needy fur children out from underfoot.

    Two dogs, one leaning over the top of the gate

    Promising review: "I have tried every baby gate or pet gate in the land, but this is the first one that has actually worked for our needs. Yes, we need to confine the 7-lb Yorkie puppy to the kitchen. Incredibly easy to install and use. I love that our dog cannot fit through the bars. She has managed to squeeze her tiny self through other gates and leap right on up and over an exercise pen. She is the Houdini of all dogs. Installation was fast and easy. Just a couple of minutes and you are good to go. If you want to install the wall mounts, that will take a few extra minutes, but we don't need them right now. Nice quality and overall, a great value."—Olivia

    Price: $38.99

    4. An indoor pen perfect for basically any small animals. Puppies, kittens, guinea pigs, lizards, hamsters, ferrets, and more will all be able to hang out with you in this pen. Get to snugglin'!

    Promising review: "Excellent option for supervised play and bonding with our new bunny babies! Waterproof so no urine leaks which is a must on our carpet. Very pleased with this economic purchase."—R.S.

    Price: $12.99+ (available in five colors)

    5. A pack of odor-neutralizing puppy pads that'll work perfectly for that litter of puppies you impulsively decided to foster, or your slightly older dog, or even if you just live on the fifth floor and you two are never gonna make it outside in time for an emergency pee.

    Promising review: "If you’re on the fence about buying these, please don’t be ! I almost didn’t buy these because they seemed too good to be true and over priced and boy was I wrong! I have four dogs, two are unaltered 70+ lb males. Long gone are the days where you pick up a dripping pee pads or the smell never really goes away. You can even lay these face down on liquid and it will soak it all up and turn it to gel in about 30 seconds. During a rain storm we found out we had a leak in our RV and used these for that too! They are completely worth the money and I will be buying this brand only from now on!"—Annabeth Hartford

    Price: $17 (for a 100-count pack)

    6. A multipack of kitty toys because Kitty deserves a treat for all those nights she's warmed your feet on the couch and snuggled up next to you in bed.

    A kitten surrounded by toys

    Promising review: "I foster kittens, so I bought this hoping they could learn to play with these toys. I’m reporting total success. I didn’t think my kitten would like the tube, but he loves it. The green tube and the cheetah streamer are his favorite toys. He’s way calmer now that he has these to play with, and the bell on the tube is surprisingly not very annoying at all. These were the very first toys that he was good playing with, starting at 4 weeks. They built his confidence up and now he’s significantly more comfortable with all of his toys. The rest of the toys are alright, but the set is worth it for just the main two."—Jaz

    Price: $9.95

    7. A slicker brush that works fantastically on both cat hair and dog undercoat, so you won't have to deal with all of that hair coming off on your clothes while you two snuggle.

    A cat next to a large ball of brushed out cat hair

    Promising review: "I brushed off enough cat hair to have another cat. I would recommend this brush if you want to brush your fur babies bald. It won't actually ever happen, them being bald, but it is so satisfying to see that fur pile up next you as you spend 30 minutes brushing your cat or dog. I'm starting to think Porkins doesn't even have any skin, she must be made entirely of fur as it NEVER ENDS. She's completely passed out now from all the brushing, she loved it. The push button to retract the bristles is fantastic and makes for easy clean up! Totally worth every penny, and I'm sure Porkins would agree as well, if she understood the basic concept of monetary values."—Charly

    Price: $15.99

    8. A nail clipper reviewers swear is fast and painless, so hopefully Kitty won't give you the cold shoulder for hours after a trim. Plus, the included guard means you're never in danger of cutting too deep.,

    Promising review: "We have a chocolate lab. As he's gotten to be an old man dog, his nails don't naturally grind down like they used to for walks. My wife is able to clip the dogs nails quickly and effectively with these. Being able to use it single handed is a nice feature and a must for a dog who does not generally like you putting your paws on his paws."—Aaron S

    Price: $13.95

    9. A bunny leash!!! Because it's a bunny leash!!! Please take your bun on a walk and send me pictures of it.

    Two bunnies wearing the leashes in a yard

    Promising review: "I bought these for my Holland Lops...they are 2 and 3 lbs now, but when I first tried them they weighed about 1.5 and 2.5 lbs respectively. They do just fine in them, as long as they are adjusted correctly, since they have so much fur, I made the mistake of putting them on too loosely at first, but now I adjust them more snugly, especially around the waist, and they work well. I like the extra security of the clip around the neck, and the stretchy lead is fantastic. Lots of fun for me and my buns! :)"—mom2twinsX2

    Price: $7.59+ (available in four sizes and seven colors)

    10. Or a lizard leash, if your pet is a little more scaly. I would also like to see pictures of your pets in these, especially with the cool wings that make them look like a lil' dragon.

    Promising review: "I wanted to start harness training my beardie early so he can get used to it. I am very impressed with this product. You get all three sizes, so he will grow and I don't have to order another one. The wings look amazing and I can now take him outside! Easy to get him in it and should last."—Silver_Sabretooth

    Price: $6.59

    11. A puzzle toy that comes in a ton of different styles and difficulty levels, so whether you have a pup that's smarter than Einstein or one that has elevator music going on up there, they're sure to find some fun and stimulation.

    A small dog with the puzzle toy

    Promising review: "This is awesome! My border collie’s level of intelligence is a part time job for me. He requires engagement and he figures out everything fast. This puzzle took him a good hour and a half to figure out the first time and every time after that, he sits with this for about an hour. He’s really calm (which he’s normally not) and concentrated with it, methodically moving pieces. I ordered a second, different puzzle a day after we received this first one. It’s easy to clean because the sliding tiles just pop right off but I’ve just been using his regular kibble in it so it's hardly gotten dirty at all."—Courtney Oldham

    Price: $9.99+ (available in four difficulty levels and 19 styles)

    12. A car hammock so you and your doggo don't have to spend a single moment apart—they can come along on all your errands!

    A dog laying in the hammock

    Promising review: "I have a Swiss shepherd and he often gets very messy. I used to take him to the park and lake without a seat cover and my car was a big mess. My last cover broke pretty quickly so I replaced it with this one. I love the non-slip bottom, it is waterproof and protects my car seats from mud, water and fur. The seat belt openings are large enough. This is a great product, high quality and reasonably priced."—electric

    Price: $34.96+ (available in two sizes and four colors)

    13. A burrow bed perfect for pets who love to snuggle, but who can't be in your lap 24/7.

    A dog under the cover part of the bed

    Promising review: "This snuggle bed is a really great product. My dog is a huge burrower, and will dig into my sheets and blankets ripping holes and whatnot. So my mom suggested a burrow bed and I decided to try this one out because I liked the color options, the sizes seemed big enough, and the price was the lowest I've found. It came quick, and he absolutely loves it. He burrows in it frequently for his anxiety (loud noises scare him and our neighbors like fireworks) and also to keep him warm. Would purchase again if he were to eat this."—Autumn-Kyoko

    Price: $32.99 (available in 10 sizes, 13 styles, and 26 colors)

    14. A coconut house that's an excellent opportunity to Instagram any and all birds and rodents hanging out inside. Remy and his followers deserve this adorableness!

    A bird in the coconut

    Promising review: "I use this in my rat cage and my babies love it. They sleep inside it, usually two at a time. I've actually bought three of these. I have to replace them simply because they get old and worn. The rats do actually use the bridge, I usually have it hooked onto a top shelf or just the side of the cage, taut enough that it will hold their weight. The entrance holes are always very large, even my big guys have plenty of room to get in and out. Makes for great photo ops :) These usually last me at least six months. I clean them when I clean the cage, with soap and water, and they dry quickly and do not retain any odors."—Jaryn Kvothe

    Price: $9.70

    15. A dog sling for those times when your dog needs to take you on a walk.

    A person with a small dog in the carrier

    Promising review: "I didn’t realize what an awesome pet carrier this was. Had already started the refund process because the strap was not adjustable and my pet’s neck didn’t seem to be comfortable. Had no choice but to use the carrier for the weekend. Amazingly, I found it to be one of the best things I got him! At one point he burrowed himself inside and fell asleep. Then refused to get out of it when I took it off and rested it down. I ended up cancelling the return."—La-la

    Price: $22.88+ (available in three sizes and eight colors)

    16. A grooming glove perfect for tricking your cat into getting brushed during one of your nonstop cuddle sessions — they'll just think it's extra pets!

    A hair covered glove and a clump of hair removed from a glove

    Promising review: "We have four lovely furry feline friends who live with us. After replacing all our carpet with flooring we noticed major hair balls floating everywhere like tumbleweeds through the house. Obviously we needed to up our grooming skills. The first time we used it on our cats they weren't sure about that 'big hand' coming after them but it only took once before they started lining up and begging to be groomed. Within a couple of days the "tumbleweeds" had all but disappeared, and even the lint tray in our dryer was cleaner after each load. In addition to the cleanliness positives for this product our cats are calmer and happier. I call it Xanax for cats. Even our somewhat neurotic tabby has became calmer than she's ever been. This is a great grooming tool and I highly recommend these gloves for any pet."—Pangu

    Price: $13.99+ (available in two colors)

    17. A food can cover so you can give Spot treats for dayssssssss without worrying about them going bad and upsetting his stomach.

    Three different sized cans with the covers

    Promising review: "These lids are great! I've had trouble finding lids that exactly fit the small Fancy Feast cans, but because the silicone is flexible, these lids don't have any problem making a secure seal. And the flat lid, with lack of any design, meads they stack better in the fridge. I've just put a second set in my cart."—Hathasam

    Price: $4.99+ (available in three colors and two pack sizes)

    18. A cat backpack because everybody deserves to get a little bit of fresh scenery, even if they don't want to actually walk on a leash.

    A person in the snow wearing the cat backpack

    Promising review: "We were half kidding around when we ordered this but thought why not!? We never imagined our cat would like it at all. He is an indoor cat who is not really adventurous. We did a few test runs around the block and he LOVE it. It is a little small for our Maine Coon when zipped up so the expandable feature is perfect once we are in the car. When we unzipped the back pack after the test run, surprisingly, he did not run out and hide. Instead he hung out in there like it was his new bed. So we leave it in the living room on the floor and he is using it as a cat-bed. It was a really good purchase"—ELSIE

    Price: $43.99+ (available in three styles and four colors)

    19. A pack of dander-reducing wipes that will hopefully keep you from being a sneezy mess after y'all take a nap together. Reviewers also say they're great if your kitty is a little older and can't quite groom like they used to.

    A hand holding up the package in front of a grooming cat

    Promising review: "This stuff changed the game for my elderly cat! He has some difficulty grooming these days, so I ordered these wipes figuring it couldn't hurt to try them, even if the glowing claims were exaggerated. But let me just say, these babies work like a charm. Dandruff: gone! Soft, kitteny fur in its place. I'm impressed. And my allergies have subsided significantly."—KKB

    Price: $5.83

    20. A pack of Dentastix so the next time Fido goes in for some kisses, you won't get knocked out by his bad breath.

    A dog looking at the treat

    Promising review: "I've been giving these to my black lab since she was a puppy (she'll be nine in December). Her vet is impressed as to how nice her teeth are and how white they are. I've never had to have her teeth professionally cleaned at any point of her life. The mint-flavor Stix really help keep her dog breath under control. I give her a different flavor each day. She loves them all. She gets very excited when I pull them out of the pantry. Her tail is waging hard enough to bruise my leg if it hits it."—Robin Walker

    Price: $11.99+ (available in four flavors and five pack sizes)

    21. Or a dog toothbrush for a slightly more heavy-duty option, that'll also keep your pup's gums in tip-top shape.

    A dog's clean teeth

    Promising review: "I bought a mint-flavored kit from a pet store and had to return it because my dog wasn’t excited about the flavor at all. This set was way cheaper and my dog loves it! He actually lets me brush his teeth with this kit. It tastes like beef for him, but it doesn’t smell like anything for me which is great. His breath doesn’t smell after using it and it keeps his teeth healthy."—Ashley

    Price: $6.99

    22. A cat litter deodorizer so you can spend as more time on scritches and less time on constantly scooping out the litter box..

    Reviewer picture of the cat litter deodorizer with five-star Amazon caption "works like a dream"

    Promising review: "NEVER get five cats! But, if you do this stuff will eliminate the stink in the litter box. We still have to scoop them daily, but the house smells like humans live there, which is nice. I like this brand because it eliminates order without adding additional smells. The don't want my litter boxes to smell like pee but I'd also don't want them to smell like lilacs or a pine forest. Most brands smell like something peed in a pine forest."—Jason Tweed

    Price: $2.99

    23. A bird diaper that is a teeny bit silly looking, but it's also darn adorable and can let your bird roam around freely, so you two never have to stop hanging out.

    Promising review: "I am a long-time fan of Flypers. They are easy to put on the birds, and the birds adapt to wearing them quickly. Mr. CC looks great in his Robot Flyper. He will be visiting an SPCA children's program in Dec/Jan. These Flypers will be a huge hit with the kids, in addition to meeting Mr. CC."—Patricia

    Price: $29.99 (available in eight sizes)
