Thanksgiving is just a week away, and what better way to celebrate the week of gratitude that shows how grateful we are to have our pets in our lives! Pets teach us a lot about ourselves and how to be thankful for what we have- with how loyal our pets are, it only makes sense that we show them the same amount of love they show us. And it’s not about grand gestures; most times, it’s the little things that can significantly impact your dog or cat. No matter how busy life gets, we should never forget to show gratitude to the people who matter most- including our furry family members!
What Are The Top Three Thrifty Ways You Can Show Gratitude To Your Furry Friend?
- If you have a dog, take them out for a walk! Even though this is something you do every day, you can still make it special by going your usual route but including more play time or even switching it up by going on a different route.
- If you have a cat, you can make a toy for them! You can create an aesthetic scratching post, a T-shirt tent, a pom-pom wand, or a cat puzzle- the possibilities are endless!
- Create a scrapbook or a photo wall on social media with the most adorable images of your pet! A photo is forever, and with that mindset, you can celebrate your pet and look back on those timeless treasures whenever you feel like it.
What Are Some Ways You Can Manifest More Gratitude Into Your (And Your Pet’s) Life?
- Having a vision allows you to make sense of the future. Where does your pet fall into that vision? What steps can you take to ensure your pet feels loved and cared for daily? Writing these thoughts down in a gratitude journal can help you focus your efforts for the future. Plus, research says that writing things down actually helps you remember them!
- Make a list of why you are grateful to have your dog or cat in your life. Do they make you smile? Do they lift your spirits when you are having a bad day? All of the above? Whatever your reasons, making a list (and checking it twice!) will give you more opportunities to get creative with your answers and welcome more gratefulness into your life.
- If you got your pet from a rescue or shelter, show gratitude to the staff at the place where you got your pet! Tell them how grateful you are to have your dog or cat, and consider volunteering there when you can.
