5 Best 2013 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals for Pets
The Wealthy Barber would slap me silly for the amount I spend on my pets. Seriously though, I don’t know about you, but whenever I go out to buy litter, I always…and I mean ALWAYS end up coming home with a new trinket for my cats. Just reflecting on the past several months alone, I’ve come home with a plush new bed (hey, it was on sale for 50% off), a slew of catnip-infused toys (hey, it was buy 3 get 1 free!) and even an apron with an intense glaring dachshund looking all Hannibal Lecter-like with the word “Dachshund” on it (at 75% off, how could I possibly say no??). The beauty of Black Friday & Cyber Monday is that if you need to buy gifts for the animal lover in your life, this is the time to do it. Or maybe you’re just like me and can’t say no to a honkin’ great deal. We’ve scanned around and narrowed down what we think are the best pet-related Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals out there.
