According to the American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey of 2011-2012, there are approximately 78.2 million pet dogs and 86.4 million pet cats in the United States. That's a lot of slobbery/fancy mouths to feed! Our roundup today seeks to lighten one of the burdens of pet ownership, with deals on pet products from PetCareRx, PetFoodDirect, and more. Now give your favorite pet(s) a loving squeeze and go save yourself some money.
Designer Living Pet Beds Coupon
Discount: 25% off via coupon code "PUPPY25"
Shipping: $7.95 s&h or free shipping on orders over $75
Is It Worth It?: Nothing brightens our day more than seeing our favorite feline snoozing in his cat bed. He spends most of the day curled up in it; sure, some might say "lazy animal," but our take is more like, "overachieving at being an awesome little kitty." If we needed a new cat bed — he's good for now — we'd opt for the pictured Soft Touch Elephant Skin Kitty Kup for $15.74. But to suit your cat's fancy, other Designer Living pet beds are also 25% off. (The discount should apply itself automatically, but if it doesn't, just use coupon code "PUPPY25".)
