Pet parents of the world, listen up! Gucci has launched its first ever luxury pet collection for the dog and cat who have everything, including collars, leashes, bowls, coats and more. And it’s ultra luxe. Some might even say it’s Extra. It has items that we bet you never thought you needed, but that now you won’t be able to live without. Think fine leather poop bag holders. Footed porcelain bowls from which pets can dine. Luxury is going to the dogs . . . and cats. And as pet parents, we’re totally here for it.
Hello, all of you who adopted a pandemic puppy or a quarantine kitten! If you haven’t already, it’s time to level up your plant game. Winter is coming, and you’re going to want something pretty in the windows when the sun starts setting at like 3:30 in the afternoon in another few weeks. Nothing against 100% green, but personally, we love house plants with lots of pink (and they happen to complement our newly renovated kitchen perfectly!) Because we have both a puppy and kitten, we went in search of pretty pink pet safe house plants (also a few purple ones) that the ASCPA has said are non-toxic for our beloved dog and cat. Here’s our edit of the best of the bunch. Somewhere on this list is the perfect new plant for pet parents to bring home.
