gifts for pets?

I was just wondering if any of you actually get christmas presents for your pets? Everyone thinks i'm weird when i bring home silkies for my geckos or a special hide box for my snakes. Am i the only weirdo?

I used to get little things, but it's just too expensive for a collection my size, and snakes are too hard to buy for , so its only the warmblooded pets that get xmas presents anymore. That's ok since they are the only ones that will appreciate little treats and things anyways

i think the concept is kinda lame.....sorry, i just dont see buying a present for an animal that doesnt recognize me, let alone the concept of time and holidays. i just buy them things when they need it like a new hide, lights, cage etc. or new mice and things when my cats loose them, or are just worn out.


oh BTW PLEASE DONT DRESS YOUR ANIMALS, THEY DONT LIKE IT AND NEITHER DO I

My cats dog and rats are the only ones that appreciate treats and toys, too many rats to give toys to.

If I buy my snakes something, it is more for me than anything else Something like a new water bowl that is deeper and heavier so they stop knocking it over at night, etc.

Snakehunter- it's all in good fun, man.

A lot of people get joy from giving their animals presents. There isn't anything lame about one-way situations like that. I love all my reptiles, even though it most certainly is not reciprocated; I talk to my snakes all the time, even though they cannot hear a word I'm speaking. As long as the animal isn't being affected negatively, and that the keeper does not mistake the animal for what it really is, then there is really no harm.
