RecentlyI've been seeingTV ads for gifts for our pets: costumes; beds; toys; treats.I know & understand that in this poor economy, merchants are desparate to sell merchandise.But this seems a little too much desparation, for me.
Our  kids (pets) get gifts all year long: UNBIRTHDAY gifts; long boring day gifts; I love when you cuddle gifts; any excuse to give them something as special as they are to us.

 Oh without a doubt,especially this year,this will be Romeo's first Christmas and I can't wait to see him tear into them,as I've said before I think he is part Tasmanian Devil,he loves to shred paper.He's going to have more fun with the wrapping than with the toys.Just like kids more fun with the packaging than the toy.We always donate to different organizations during the year and also during the holidays.Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Well, I can't vote because too many answers apply. 
I'll get  these miserable little monsters some new felt mice toys. 
Whatever I decide to cook , I'll make certain suits them. 
I've already given some extra money to church.
I'll give a bit of money to the local humane society - where I got these shedding stinkers.
I'll give a bit of money to the domestic abuse clinic A.L.I.V.E.

The fur kids get toys all year long. Past holidays I would give my son's fur kids gifts, this was to help him out. But sadly this year $$ is very tight, so nothing extra was bought. I would love to buy the after holiday pet toys, 60-80% off and just give it to them all year long. Squeaky toys don't last too long with my girls, they don't care if Santa gets torn up in May!

I give my little Vienna (mini doxie) stuffed toys all year long.  I quickly discovered that any "dog" toy is destroyed within minutes.  So I go to Goodwill and buy stuffed toys.  They are under $1.00, most are .50 and she can tear them up to her little hearts content.  I just go around the living-room picking up fluff! Right now she is working on a neon multi-colored elephant that is as big as she is. She has had that one for a month, seems to really like it.  She will lay down with her head on it's back.
So getting her toys at Goodwill I am supporting them while getting a great deal on toys.  My "mean" cat likes little mice but also the little beanie babies.  My scaredy cat doesn't play with toys, she likes to tip over glasses of water, knock things off tables and desks.

MOST CERTAINLY I DID!!!  Matter of fact, the 4 boys complained that the dogs had more gifts under the tree & in their stockings than they did.  Of course, I kept the kid's gifts hidden until last minute IN CASE they wanted to sneak a peek or feel their package & guess what they got - so anxious, they can't wait for Christmas morning!  I have to say, Kiwi, Zena & Howie were extremely excited & thankful for their presents

Never did and don't intend to start. They always stayed happy year round.

Yes, we get our pets holiday gifts.  Sturdy well made interesting toys and healthy treats are among our favorite gifts for them.

Debbie -- what treats do you get for your cat?  Mine are absolute gluttons for treats ... pushy and demanding and then being offended by the treat I present.  I buy every treat found in any store and keep trying.  They keep changing their mind.

My cat is too old for toys.  She is 9 or 10 years old.  She would rather be where we are instead of playing.  She is a people cat.

Yes, our cat gets a present every Christmas which is every day. We love him, feed and shelter him. He has been part of our family for 16 years.

We don't have any pets because one of my sons is very allergic.  However, my other son who lives in another state has a cat.  There was a stray outside of where he works who had kittens and he took one of them.  He's had her for several years now.  I always give him money at holiday time and her birthday to purchase something for her.  Also, my brother has a beagle and I also give him money to purchase something for him.

Growing up we always had animals.

In Response to DO YOU BUY HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR YOUR PETS?????????????????????:
Yes, we do buy our dogs a treat and a toy. Yes, they do know it is Christmas. Soon as we are up on Christmas morning, all three of our fur kids sit and drool at their stocking, waiting to see what they get. This year we found inexpensive dog beds for them. Soon as we put them in their favorite sleeping spots, they all curled up and napped for the afternoon. Just like making Christmas cookies for us, they also get their own special "cookies". These are 100% dog friendly, made from a very simple recipe.
