Question of the Day - November 7 - Friday

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
As Christmas draws near, I was wondering if you wrap gifts for your pets and put them under the Christmas tree?



I actually do this for our cats and dogs. The cats receive catnip filled toys so they are encouraged to open them at anytime and the dogs receive toys with squeakers to entice them to rip right into their gifts.

Yes, I do

I generally do wrap up a couple, but it seems the same for the cats as it is for little kids they are more interested in the wrapping paper then the toy.

I have in the past! A few of their Christmas presents have been big things, so we've just given them right away too.

My pets get their presents wraped and put in their stockings, if we leave things under the tree they tend to sniff them out and destroy.

I have. We will usually have a stocking for them though.

I will wrap something for my macaw in plain paper though. He likes to shred te paper as much as getting the toy I think lol.

We have stockings for them, and sometimes a little present. Sparkle always shreds the wrapping on a couple of our daughter's presents so she usually gets a little preview.

Wally has a stocking. I put the treats directly in it without wrapping them.

I do wrap the gifts for them if they are large enough Then I open it "with" them. Half the time they want the wrapping paper instead

One year, most of the presents under the tree had little cat teeth marks in them

I do. It is so much fun to see presents under the tree and the more the better.

I wrap up their Christmas presents and put them in their stockings I even put name tags on them I've got one stocking for the cats and one for the dogs, and I label everything so I know who's is who's. If it's a big gift though (like the 3' bone DH got Fosters a year or so ago, then that goes under the tree)

I wrap their presents and put the little ones in their stockings, the big ones under the tree.

Our families animals also exchange gifts between each other, so I wrap up my cats' gifts to the other family pets and they go with me to my parents' house. But we're kinda weird that way.

This reminds me, though...I have to make a new stocking this year for Speedbump the parakeet!

Oh, yeah, I wrap presents for them every year, and every year they ignore them, make themselves scarce when the presents are distributed, and give me the "why do I care, Mum?" attitude when I give them a prezzie with an end started to entice them, etc, etc. I have pics of Fawn opening prezzies their first Christmas, but since then, they are total party poopers. But I persist.

Our kits get a stocking with treats in, and Jasper (our Labrador) gets a stocking with treats in and a squeaky toy to entice him to open it himself

well its my 1st year of onwing a pet or two, but i have bought stockings gifts wrapping paper and selotape hehe
post #21 of 25
I totally do! I hide little treats inside the paper on Christmas morning so my dog will tear into it, and with my cats, well they don't care, so I'll just put it in front of them, unwrapped, and let them stare at it for a few hours lol

Yes I do . I am going to miss my little girl Sophie (RIP) . That silly dog loved opening presents, hers and everyone elses.

Let's see. Wrap a gift for Butzie and put it under one of the 12 menorahs we have, all with lighted candles...that is not a pretty picture!

Absolutely.
