February is the Month for Lovers and Animal Lovers

February 14th may be  Valentine's Day but February 20th is LOVE YOUR PET DAY!   Our friends at Matrix Partners shared the following information and product gift guide for Fido + Felix, and we wanted to pass it on to you too!

Chicago, IL (January 30, 2013) – We share pictures of them via text messages, watch endless videos of their antics on YouTube, we give them adoring pet names – like Spot, Mittens and Lloyd. Our canine and feline friends hold a special place in the hearts of 72.9 million American households, so it’s not surprising their influence on our wallets matches the tug on our heartstrings.

Last year alone, over $120 million was spent on gifts for pets (up from the $90 million recorded in 2008). This February celebrate the pets you love most on Valentine’s Day (2/14/13) and Love Your Pet Day (2/20/13). Here is an affectionately sweet list of gift ideas you’re sure to appreciate:

TREATS THAT NATURALLY DELIGHT - Spring Naturals Baked Meat Treats for Dogs

Beyond their award winning dry and canned dinners for dogs, Spring Naturals offers a complete line of meaty, baked treats that are consistent with their Whole Food Nutrition philosophy. The family of wholesome recipes is made with more real meat as the #1 ingredient and a generous helping of chickpeas, apples, spinach, blueberries and cranberries. And since these products do not contain meat, poultry or fish “meals”, they can be formulated without high-glycemic ingredients like corn, wheat, soy, potato starch, tapioca or rice. Spring Naturals Treats are made in the USA by a family-owned company and are available in Whole Grain and Grain Free varieties.

BE SWHEAT TO YOUR CAT  - Swheat Scoop Lightly Scented Natural Cat Litter

Made from 100% natural wheat (a renewable, sustainable resource), Swheat Scoop is biodegradable, chemical free and completely effective at eliminating litter box odors. Through Swheat Scoop’s patented process, the wheat’s natural enzymes are exposed to destroy odors instantly, while the natural starches form firm clumps fast when in contact with moisture.
