A good measure of how far our pets have been elevated in status is in how the world is now catering to them, and to their owners. The largest pet stores don’t even sell dogs and cats. They stock their shelves with an abundance of the trendiest pet supplies, from the latest dog grooming products to luxury pet beds to every imaginable pet toy, all while encouraging and facilitating pet adoption from shelters. And of course, pets get to come along for the shopping.
Even if you aren’t in a pet store, you’re likely to find trendy new pet luxury items for your dog or cat in a variety of other stores. Makers of “people products” such as Old Navy, Harley Davidson and Paul Mitchell now have their own lines of designer pet products. The traditional dog bath has gone out the window, and is being replaced by professional dog grooming and pampered pet spa treatments. Cats still lick themselves meticulously, but their efforts can be enhanced by special kitty dry mousse shampoos, which pampers pets by getting them clean without having to go near water.
