They have been nice all year, except perhaps for that little naughty wet spot on the carpet or the odd scratched couch. But, hey, it’s the holiday season, and your dog and cat deserve a little something under the tree.

We know there are tons of options, so we’ve narrowed it down to some particularly fun, intriguing or tasty treats with which to regale your BFFs, or best furry friends, this time of year. We promise they won’t be returning or regifting these.

Crazy for cats

Cats, thinkers at heart, would appreciate technology that makes their lives easier and more interesting, which means they would like Catit’s new Pixi Smart Line for eating and drinking. Named after the company’s office cat, these smart products allow pet parents to get kitty what he or she needs, even if the humans are nowhere in sight.

The Pixi Smart Feeder dispenses the right amount of food at exactly the right time. WiFi connectivity allows users to schedule daily feeding times and pre-determine meal portions using the free Pixi app on any smart device. A large food reservoir with a desiccant pad helps keep dry food fresher longer.
