Get ready to picket my office.

Am I the only one who thinks buying a pet a Christmas gift is just a little bit lame?

I suppose you might give a gift to your pet to make you feel good.  Watching them play might make your Christmas a little more fun.

But don't tell me you think a dog or a cat knows that it's Christmas.  A pet can't tell a day from an hour let alone the concept of giving gifts.

You can argue with me and tell me that your pet "understands" gift giving all you like.  As I write this, I can see my wife's cat licking its hiney.  I rest my case.
