Gifts With Animal Appeal

Pet Gifts from the Dollar Store

For many of us, our pets are more than just four-legged animal companions, they are a part of the family and we like to give them presents, too. Dollar stores fill this need economically, whether it's with brand name treats or a new chew toy.

Cats are notorious for steadfastly refusing store-bought toys in favor of an empty plastic grocery bag or a scrunched up ball of foil wrap. So when I brought this doorknob toy home I didn't expect five-year-old Cloe to give it more than a perfunctory sniff before completely ignoring it. As it turns out, our girl was quite taken with the belled mouse hanging from a length of elastic.


Dollar stores have metal, plastic and ceramic feeding dishes for your small pets. Shown here; a ceramic cat dish and a smaller version of those convenient food and water feeders. $1.00 each




Give your pet a mini spa treatment. This package of twelve moist cleansing wipes is perfect for a quick clean-up after walkies or to freshen your feline friend's fur without the trauma that a tub of water presents. And what dog or cat doesn't enjoy the soothing feeling of being brushed. This double-sided brush has a comfortable rubber handle playfully embossed with a paw print design. Each item is $1.00.

Dogs like nothing better than to spend time with you. These colourful tennis balls come in a package of three for $1.00 and are Christie approved.
