Everyone loves puppies and kittens, but giving a pet as a gift during the holidays might not be such a good idea. A puppy and kitten are just like babies, they need time, attention and routine. With the hectic schedules that go along with the holidays it might be too much for you and your new pet.Here are a few tips for giving pets as gifts:
- Make sure the person you are getting the pet for really wants one and can afford the costs of having a pet and responsibly taking care of it.
- Pick out your pet before the holidays and pick it up after the hoopla is over.
- Once your pet is picked out, give a picture of your new pet as the gift.
- Don’t forget to include a book or video on proper pet care with your picture.
