Do your cats have their own Christmas stockings? My dogs do, and each features his or her name in fuzzy felt letters. Needless to say, my pets rank high on my holiday shopping list. With that in mind, I went in search of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I found five, including an exclusive offer for members of the Catster community.
I love the design-inspired products at daily deal website LeLe Pets. Thanks to an exclusive offer, Catster readers will get 25 percent off their entire order Friday, Nov. 23, through Sunday, Nov. 25! Simply apply the promo code “Catster” during checkout.
Among the items that will be available:
Made from 100 percent recycled corrugated cardboard, this Native American Teepee for Fluffy Little Critters by Loyal Luxe takes your cat’s love of boxes to a stylish new level. It even comes with six interchangeable ornaments, including a dream catcher, eagle, and the bull’s head shown here. It regularly costs $25, but the discount code will knock it down to $16.25.
The PetEgo Chicky Bowl — it’s shaped like a drumstick! — regularly costs $21, but you will pay just $12.60 with the discount.
And don’t forget the pet-themed wrapping paper from Papergirl Designs. It regularly runs $10, but LeLe Pets will let Catster readers have it for just $6.50.
Pet retailer Doctors Foster and Smith will put its entire Private Label collection on sale Friday, Nov. 23, through Monday, Nov. 26, reducing items by up to 25 percent. Such savings allow you to get a high-ticket item, such as the Classi-Cat Treehouse shown above, for significantly less. It regularly costs $199.99, but will run $149.99 during the sale.
PetSmart takes Black Friday and Cyber Monday quite seriously. Discounts of 75 percent on select products have already kicked in online, and 50 percent off will apply to a variety of items — including the Kong Gingerbread Man Catnip Toy shown above — both in stores and online at various times through Nov. 29. In-store savings require the swipe of a free PetPerks membership card. For full details about the many days of savings, view the ad for your local PetSmart store.
The savings at Petco also will be significant, but what I’m really excited about are the free antlers available Friday when you swipe your Pals Rewards membership card during a purchase. Petco places the accessory in the dog category, but why wouldn’t you grab a set for your cat? Other than the fact that he or she might not appreciate the gesture, that is.
Also expect to see 50 percent off Petco scratching posts, litter boxes, and many other items Friday through Sunday, Nov. 23 through 25, both online and in stores. The Petco Ultra Soft Oval Donut Cat Bed shown above will be 50 percent off its regular price of $9.99! See the store’s Black Friday ad for more on-sale items.
This last “deal” actually benefits others instead of yourself. Keith Bowers wrote about the original Sky Scratcher last month, a scratching post made of recycled corrugated cardboard and bamboo plywood in the shape of Sears Tower in Chicago. Just in time for the holiday season, Furrrniture has introduced a New York version modeled after the Empire State Building. It stands 3 feet tall, weighs more than 15 pounds, and ships fully assembled with a 2-ounce bottle of organic catnip spray to further entice your cat to scratch.
If you purchase the Sky Scratcher NYC through the company’s Etsy shop before the end of Cyber Monday, Nov. 26, a portion of sale proceeds will benefit pets injured or left hungry and homeless by Hurricane Sandy.
Do you know of any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals for cat lovers? If so, please share them in the comments for your fellow pet parents! Also, be sure to stop by your neighborhood mom-and-pop pet-supply shops this weekend. It’s Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24, and many will be celebrating with discounts and special events.
