Spoil Your Pet, Grab One Of These Items

Your pet is a furry family member. They’re your four-legged baby, and should certainly be treated as such. When you really want to spoil your dog or cat, grab them one of these over-the-top and totally adorable items. Your friends may think you’re crazy. Your significant other may question your purchases. But deep down you know it’s totally worth it:

A DJ scratching pad

Sure, you could give your cat a boring old scratching post. But that’s something a “normal” cat owner would do. Instead, help your kitty pursue their dream of being a world-renowned DJ when you gift them with this scratch pad that looks like a DJ’s turntables. Added bonus: you’ll get hours of amusement as you watch them use it.

This is real too! #Djcatscratchingpad #thisisreal #badasscats
