After a long cold winter, we’ve finally entered spring, and more specifically, the month of April, which means that Easter is right around the corner. It won’t be long before Lent is over and we can all celebrate by indulging in all of the chocolate we can get our hands on, plus whatever else you may have given up this year.
But while we stuff our faces with the latest quirky Easter egg offerings, what about our beloved pets? In previous years they may have had to stay content with scraps from your Easter Sunday lunch plate, but this year, Pets at Home has upped the game for your four-legged friends even further.
Yes, that’s right – the store has launched an adorable selection of Easter treats for our furry friends so they can join in with the festivities too. The pet retailer is selling small Easter eggs for cats, dogs and other small animals – all of which have been hand-wrapped in super-cute packaging.
With prices starting at just £2, the treats are not only purse-friendly but come in a variety of flavours designed to suit your pet’s discerning palette. We’re talking everything from peanut butter flavoured carob Easter egg dog treats and yogurt and catnip Easter cat treats, to dandelion flavours for your smallest pets.
And before you ask, no – none of the treats contain actual chocolate, and are made with ingredients that are entirely suitable for animals.
As well the sweet treats, Pets at Home are putting on special workshops for children between the ages of five and 11 to meet and play with animals during the Easter break.
This not only provides kids with a fun experience (we’re totally wishing we were five again) but also allows parents to get free childcare from 11.30am every day during the school holidays if they sign their children up. Win win!
