Accessories That People Usually Buy for Their Pets

Some of the common dog accessories are collars, leashes, plus toys for chewing and fetching – like balls. For many owners, dog clothes are not too important, but you seldom see a dog with no collar and leash, or a house where a dog lives without a basket, a couple of pillows or some kind of dog bed – even if they sleep beside their owner. Other common accessories include fur combs that resemble a small rake for pet dogs that have long fur.

Cat accessories include catnip, collars cat furniture and small toys, most of which are feathered types or those that move. Majority of owners here are not interested to get clothing for their pet cats, and people rarely buy clothes for them. There are many ‘DIY cat toys that are easy to make, and cats always keep themselves busy with many objects that are not meant for them. Fur combs are also common to cats, particularly those that live indoors, such as long-haired ones.

Those who have rodents for pets usually spend on food bowl, water bottles, special food, treats, carriers and shiny cages. They often buy wheels and houses. The toys they commonly play with are small balls with a bell, though not all rodents really like them. In addition, most of these accessories can easily be made by hand – that is why rodent owners do not buy them, but rather choose to make their own.

Rats like things that are cozy – such as hanging houses, hammocks and tubes. Degus prefer easy-moving type of toys. Dwarf and regular hamsters are generally not interested in different kinds of toys, but like playing in the wheel and multi-level structures they can climb on. So far, guinea pigs do not have as much toys; at least this is most common. Besides, most pet shops do not sell many guinea pig toys, just chew toys, seesaw toys and small toys they can take along. These are the same toys for bunnies. Ferrets like hammocks as well as hanging beds, and behave when leashed though I am not sure if this is always the case (I know they are not rodents, but these are very similar accessories).

Food and cages are the most common accessories for birds. Nevertheless, beak stones (huge white polishing stuff), hanging toys, swing toys (with smaller moving parts), nests or nesting materials are also available.

The common accessories for reptiles are heat lamps plus nice-looking things to put in their habitat. These are similar for aquatic creatures. except that they require thermometers and water heaters in place of a heat lamp.
