Gifts for Every Pet Personality

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone who has ever had a pet knows that each one has their own individual personality with unique quirks that make them so incredibly lovable. So when choosing a gift for a pet, why take a one-size-fits-all approach? Shoppers would certainly not take that approach with a husband, daughter, best friend or co-worker and pets shouldn't be any different. This holiday, Petco™ is celebrating pet individuality with a gift guide designed to meet the personality of every pet. Read on for their top gift picks:

The Hipster: Have a pet that's an independent thinker and an edgy dresser? Then you might have a hipster on your hands. A hipster dog wouldn't be complete without the Petco brand Fashion Bowtie ($8.99), and it's guaranteed they'll love kitchy, SimplyShe Holiday Tuxedo Sweater for dogs ($14.99-19.99), a play on the tuxedo shirt. Beards are also a hipster staple, and now envious cool cats can take their hipness up a notch with a Petco brand Santa beard ($4.99) – no more beard envy!

The Health Nut: From a raw diet to an exercise regimen, the health conscious movement has definitely trickled down to pets. Healthy cats will love the Kitty Garden ($9.99); healthy, edible grass in a vintage-inspired wooden planter. The four flavors: barley, rye, oats and wheat not only look great, but help a cat's digestion and prevent hairballs. The Drinkwell Lotus Pet Fountain ($79.99) has a zen-like feel to it and provides a stylish and convenient supply of fresh, filtered water. Even hamsters can work on their fitness with the Spin City Health Club ($49.99), a unique habitat with a wheel that keeps track of how many laps the hamster runs.

The Style Icon: Usually, human fashionistas have mini pet fashionistas that appreciate the latest in haute couture. Pets can travel in style with the BNB "mad about plaid" and passport stamps fashion carriers ($49.99-69.99). They can also be the belle of the ball with the best-in-class Petco brand harnesses ($19.99-34.99) that are offered in seven sizes to fit dogs from Chihuahua to Lab in a vast array of colors and prints. Jewelry is always a winner with this set, so a personalized, sparkly Fido Pet ID Tag with crystal accents ($12.00-20.00) is another way to go. And true Parisian fashion, gift a beautiful red or blue Fashion Bow ($8.99) and a Posh Paw manicure service to match mommy's French manicure.

The Geek: Have a pet obsessed with the latest cutting edge breakthroughs? Cats will love the Littermaid ($129.99-179.99), America's first fully automatic self-cleaning litter tray. For the family fish that need a new high tech home, the Fluval Spec Aquarium ($69.99) offers a 360 degree view of the tank due to it's unique built in filtration system. Reptiles craving an authentic rainforest experience will love the Exo Terra Congo Rainforest Habitat Kit ($199.99). Designed by European herpetologists, it includes a stunning new background design based on the mysterious statues of the dense Congo jungle.

The Foodie: For the food aficionado, The Merrick Holiday Sausage Treats ($9.99) are a beautifully packaged sausage sampler platter that is made with all-natural ingredients, it looks so tasty pet parents can easily mistake it for people food. Foodies can also agree bacon makes everything better and puppies three months or older will agree that the Nylabone Nutri Dent Good Puppy Bacon & Cheese Edible Dental Chews ($7.29-14.99) hits the nail on the head with this good-for-you treat. There are a lot of kitties out there that believe whole-heartedly in the organic movement, so spoil them with Blue Buffalo All Natural Cat Treats ($3.99).

The Philanthropist: For the pet who has everything and wants to lend a helping hand to animals in need, donate on their behalf to the Petco Foundation's annual Tree of Hope campaign which takes place from November 12, 2012 - January 6, 2013. Donations can be made at the nearest Petco store, Unleashed by Petco store or online at www.petco.com/holiday. Donations help feed homeless pets in shelters, give lifesaving medical assistance, enable rescuers to grow their resources so that they can help ease the burdens of overfull shelters, and provide venues and grants to help usher those without a voice into loving homes.
