With Mother’s Day right around the corner, many pet moms find themselves just as eager to celebrate the holiday with their furry children as any mother.  Although our pets can’t make it out to the store to buy gifts and cards, there are plenty of fun ways pet moms can celebrate Mother’s Day.

Here are some ideas on how to celebrate with the special pet in your life.

For Dog Parents:

Any dog parent will tell you that their dog is happiest when they are spending time with their “humom” or “hudad.” So for Mother’s Day, the best way to celebrate is to spend some quality time with your canine child.  Go for a hike or even a simple walk around the block with your dog and enjoy the beautiful weather. Many restaurants are opening up their patios and sidewalks as the weather warms up, so take your dog out to lunch at a pet-friendly restaurant and enjoy a special treat with them.  Even something as simple as buying your dog a new collar or sweater is a fun way to celebrate the holiday.

For Cat Parents:

A cat is more of a homebody than their canine compatriots. However, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the holiday with them!  Search online to find some recipes for homemade cat treats and whip up a batch for your kitty.  Open the windows and let your cat chirp at the birds and enjoy the May sunshine.  Share a new toy or some catnip with your four-pawed child and enjoy some extra snuggles on the couch.

For All Other Pet Parents:

The best way to celebrate this day with any pet is to take some extra time to show your love and affection for them and allow them to return the favor.  Extra treats and new toys specific to your pet will bring you happiness through your pet’s enjoyment.

For most pet parents, nothing brings more joy than seeing their pet happy and healthy.  So take time on Mother’s Day to share some extra play and snuggles with your pet child.  And of course, make sure you take pics of your holiday adventures so you can remember them for years to come!
