Favorite Five October 2015, The Pet Matchmaker

Fall is in the air and it’s time for our Favorite Five October 2015. We’re always on the lookout for the best animal and pet related stuff on the web. Every month, we choose 5 of those items to highlight. You’ll always find something extraordinary at The Pet Matchmaker!

TPM’s Favorite Five October 2015


DC Batman Costume



Halloween is coming and you know what they say… Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman. Then always be Batman. So if you’re looking to turn your pooch into a caped crusader with rhinestones – this is the outfit for you. At Target for $14.99 – available in sizes XS-L.


Hand Printed Cotton Tote




Plastic bags are out, and reusable bags are in.  So why not have some fun with them?  These totes by Extraordinary Craft are made with heavy cotton webbing handles and feature reinforced stress points. From Frenchie Lovers to Fish Lovers, you can shop in style. Or spread a smile – and Whirled Peas! Totes are 15″W x 15″H x 3″D. $15 at Extraordinary Craft on Etsy.


Contoure Modern Cat Tree Tower


When is a cat tree more than a cat tree? When it’s also an arty contemporary piece! Made of sustainably harvested, locally grown unstained birch plywood, it’s 68″ high and features four carpeted platforms.  Not cheap, but if you’re in the mood to spoil your cat or yourself, this could be the piece to do it. You’ll find it on Amazon for $247 ($46.95 shipping.)


Road Dog and Rescue Hoodie


Ok, call us biased, but we love this hoodie promoting the rescue of our very own, Diary of a Dog Rescuer, Nikki Carvey!  A must-have if you like bulldogs, or just dig American-made, hand screen printed quality.  A portion of the proceeds goes towards rescuing more Road Dogs! $49.95. This and other fabulous hoodie and t-shirt designs available from The T-Shirt Whore.


Pet Memorial Coins



It’s difficult to know what to say when someone’s beloved pet passes, but this beautiful memorial coin makes a really touching keepsake.  Designed by shelter volunteer and founder of At-Choo, Elaine Seamans, a portion of the proceeds go to provide medical care for shelter dogs through The At-Choo Foundation.  Pewter dipped silver (1 1/2 x 7/8) $30 at Atchoo.com.

That’s it for our Favorite Five October 2015. Come back next month for more great pet stuff. Only on The Pet Matchmaker. Didn’t find what you’re looking for? Check out our Fave5 page.
