    Such great gifts Lori! A nice change from all the gift ideas for pets, it’s about time we started recognising the pet moms and dads that take such good care of them. I think my favourites are the shoes. A must have for me I think.

    That ModCloth dress with the feline trim is puurrrfect! The tote bags are super cute too. Plus having one or two more never hurts because you can rotate their use, keep some in the trunk of the car, store stuff in them in closets.

    These are all SO nice! I love the kitty dress, it’s hard to do a pet print in a dress without it looking a bit kooky but this one really looks fashionable. I love the scarf too.

      The scarf seems to be a favorite. Although it isn’t clear in the picture, it even has a deep, black fringe on the ends to dress it up.

    I didn’t know Laurel Burch was still around I always loved her designs and owned some mugs and other items in the past. I don’t think I can own any more animal pajamas, between the Dachshunds and the flamingos, there is no room for the cats!
