World Animal Day is coming soon. And if you love animals, like we do, you might want to give some extra attention to animals on this day. So while you are out there showing some love to all the cute animals you see on the internet, you shouldn’t forget about your own adorable companion at home. On this day of all days we are united by our love for these amazing beings that make our life so much better. And it doesn’t matter if you own a cat, dog, bird, fish, snake or a spider. Because we know you can find a gaming or geek related gift for any kind of animal that has a place in your heart.
Decorate your pet’s house
Ok, so having a fish, turtle or a spider is a little bit different than having a four legged furry companion like a cat or a dog. So a brand new chew toy or a leash is not going to be a good fit. However, animals who live in an aquarium or a terrarium might enjoy some miniature statues of your favorite geeky gaming characters. For example, did you know that the web shop ThinkGeek.com has a whole Marvel aquarium line?
And the internet is full of DIYs about how to make awesome decorations that you can use for your pet’s house. Now, this is an idea that is fitting for any size pet you have. And… you can design the patterns and colours by choosing a theme that fits your interior design. Two birds, one stone. (Not literally, of course!) Where there is a geek, there is a way, as we like to say. Just make sure to not put anything in there that can be toxic or dangerous to your pet. Take a look at the Super Mario Bros. fish tank decorations in the video below.
Make it something usefull.
Remember when you were younger, and your parents kept getting you pyjamas and socks for your birthday? Yes, it seemed somewhat boring. But they did have a point. Because, since you needed these items in your daily life, they knew that you would get a lot of use out of them. Plus, wasn’t it kinda nice that it reminded you of them everytime you wore it? Now we are not saying that you couldn’t go a little bit further than just boring socks. After all, World Animal Day just comes once a year. So you might want to splurge a little and get your BFF (best furball forever) a shiney new custom made geeky bowl or a cool new geeky bed to sleep in. For example this Batman dog bed pet house from HappyPawsPetSupplies for $28.95.
“Buy a chew toy, you must. Hmm.”
Do you have a playfull pet? Here are some ideas that can help them get rid of all that playfull energy. Everywhere we look on the internet we find little Pokémon balls that would get any cat excited to play with. Or maybe you can decorate a box to look like a game chest and hide food in it for your pet rabbit to find. And maybe your dog is in need of a brand new geeky plushy to use as a chew toy. Don’t know what kind of chew toy to get your dog? Here are some cool Dog Chew Toys we found for less than $5 dollars.
Le Geek, c’est chique!
Yes, we are that corny. But we do think that there are some awesome geeky items your pet can wear. Perhaps something warm and cozy will make your adorable furball happy. Especially since it’s fall, with winter just around the corner. Do you want your pet to be all snug during the cold months of the year? We found some amazing nerdy suits to keep your pets warm. There are a lot of different geeky dog costumes online. So now you need to decide if you want an awesome Totoro costume, a cute Toothless costume, a geeky Dino costume or a funny Minions costume. Or, may we suggest this adorable Pikachu costume for only $7.88 to $9.87.
Nothing beats a good treat.
Having trouble getting your pet to keep it’s new ‘hulk’ outfit on? Not every animal enjoys a new geeky garment. But don’t stress. Because you can’t go wrong with a geeky treat. Depending on what animals you have, there are fast and easy ways to throw together a beautiful meal for them. There are dozens of healthy doggy or kitty treats recipes and ideas on YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram and other blog websites. And if you have a hamster or a bunny, an awesome idea could be to slice up their favorite fruits and veggies into geeky shape. Maybe these Pokémon shaped cookie cutters can come in handy for that. You can get this set of 4 Pokémon Cookie Cutters for only $10.38.
What else could you do for animals?
You don’t own a pet, but you still want to do something for animals on this day? Or maybe you want to go the extra mile for our animal friends. There are a lot of Animal Welfare Groups that can use your help. And if you rather donate your time instead of your money, look for animal sanctuaries that are looking for volunteers to lend a helping hand. We hope you and your favorite animals have a great World Animal Day!
