    My kitties will probably get another cardboard scratching pad. They both love the one we have now, but KiKi doesn't like to share. I know KiKi would love some little balls to bat around, but Jax manages to find every toy we buy the cats and that's the end of the toys.

    We're thinking of getting Jax a soccer or basketball. He hates the black kong for super chewers - won't chew on it at all - and he destroys the red kongs in a very short time. That leaves him with nothing but the hardest bone nylabone makes as a chew toy and some very old real bones.

    What are you getting your pets?

    Well, if I have the money. The two younger ones will get chew/play toys and Anook, the older one, will get a big soft bed. Anook is our aussie/st.bernard and she is such a snuggle bug, she jumps at the opportunity of the open laundry room door, in which she goes in and plops down and passes out on piles of dirty laundry. If there is a comforter on the floor, she's there. If nobody's home, she' on the couch(sure to get off as you are unlocking the door). We haven't caught her "on" the couch in a long time, but we come in the door and she stands looking guilty in front of the couch, everytime you can put your hand on the couch and find a warm spot. LOL So, I think Anook has had a bed one her Christmas list for a long time. LOL

    The cats? Well, I guess I can allow them to live here for another year. *snicker*

    Blackjack my horse, is getting gelded for Christmas............................................... even though he wasn't on the naughty list.

    Tipper, my dog, will probably get a 1-1/2 foot rawhide bone from the farm store. Oh, and some new Tuff tennis balls from Walmart. The cats...the scraps from making Christmas dinner. The chooks...the leftovers of the scraps from making Christmas dinner. [​IMG]

    Quote:That's us! IF we can afford it. I still have the new pup to get ready for - another training crate, puppy toys, more food, ugh!
    The chickens are easy to buy for. Give them a big bowl of oatmeal and they are happy.

    I'm a little hesitant, too, when it comes to rawhide, but our dog's a *relatively* slow chewer, so I decided to try it, as she doesn't like most other chews. She's a lab cross, so I would think she'd love chewing, but when she was a puppy she was taught (by her previous owners) to not touch anything that wasn't hers, which can be really nice when you have kids' toys and crayons on the ground, but it limits the toys she will play with.

    Quote:Not Jax, he inhales things. I made the mistake awhile back of giving him a rawhide stick, about a foot long. It was gone in less than 20 minutes. Then I had to give him pepto bismal for a week cuz it caused horrible diarrhea. Thankfully he loves the taste of pepto and will lick it from a bowl.
