Give your pet the cutest, squeakiest toys
You can buy your pet the cutest, squeakiest toys but you know they won't last forever: your dog will tear even the sturdiest plush to shreds eventually.
You can at least stay ahead of them with a Barkbox subscription, which will deliver a themed box full of funny toys and delicious treats once a month.
The themes will make you laugh, while your dog will love having a package that's all for them. — Kris Naudus, Buyer’s Guide Editor

I was browsing online to see if we could get some delivered, I came across CatPerson, a subscription service for cat food.
On top of that, the food looked high-quality, with natural ingredients and 50 percent more protein than the industry standard.

Bonus: the delivery box easily converts into either a toy or a kitty chalet for the cat to play around in. — Nicole Lee, Senior Editor

The K&H bed is simple, yet effective. There’s a built-in heating pad stashed in the base of the bed that keeps it at a consistently cozy (and safe) temperature.
The cover is also removable, so it’s easy to wash up, which is a good thing when your cat spends hours a day in there
can hold up to 14 ounces of liquid
After trying several different dog-specific water bottles, I found the travel bottle from PetKit ideal for helping my canine companion stay hydrated.
It’s only $13 but can hold up to 14 ounces of liquid and features a clever design that limits spillage. A silica gel gasket and lock ring also help ensure that the bottle won’t leak in your backpack.
