Ah, Christmas. The one time of the year wearing colours like red and green together is acceptable. That special time of the year when the holiday season is upon us, engulfing us in its warm embrace and holding us tight. It’s a time of self-reflection and growth with the New Year just around the corner.
But more importantly, it’s a time for gift giving! Though some of you might find this surprising, pets such as cats and dogs are not excluded from this either as part of the recent gift-giving culture, in which pets are also considered. Read on to find out just why owners are spending so much on their pets!
It’s believed that because pets develop such a deep emotional attachment to their owners through a strong bond, the love they have for their owners is also equally indestructible. In other words, pets tend to love their owners unconditionally because of which owners feel the desire to display their affections as well, and what better way to do this than by surprising your pet with a gift!
There are a number of people whom are alone in the holiday season due to not having any family to celebrate with. Hence they turn to their pets for such comfort. This automatically creates a feeling of belonging and family, which is why owners feel it’s right to treat their pets with Christmas gifts too. It’s reported that Americans spend a grand total of $5 billion on gifts for their pets, which is a great makeup of the $50 billion spent on pets in general.
It’s said that unless a pet doesn’t feel fully comfortable or welcome in their owners home, it will not adapt easily. Hence, gift giving, especially in the holiday season when spirits are high, and love is being spread, proves to be an extremely loving notion which makes your pets feel included and cared for!
