Top 10 Weird Pet Products You Never Knew You Needed
Being in the pet industry, we get to see a lot of strange things… we mean really odd. But being odd makes them that much more awesome.
1. Doggy Lips
We all know that dogs need fun and engaging toys to keep them busy, but you never knew that you needed THIS toy! The FOUFIT Lips Chew Toy is a soft and durable rubber dog ball with a built-in squeaker and one fun addition – a large pair of puckered lips attached. When your dog is holding the ball in its mouth, these lips will have you guessing whether you’re invited a member of the Kardashian family to join your household!
Not only is this a fun and hilarious toy, but the bumpy texture of the ball itself will also work to massage your dog’s gums and help to clean their teeth while they play. Not sure that the lips are quite the look that your pup is going for? A Mustache chew toy is perfect for any gentleman, while a cute bunny-inspired chew toy with an adorable bunny button nose and teeth gives off all the spring vibes.
2. JYPS Foot Tied Cat Teaser Toy
Have you ever wondered if there was an option to play with your cat while keeping your hands free to do other things like reading a book or texting? While this may not be the most common problem among cat owners, JYPS seems to believe that it’s a challenge worth solving!
The Foot Tied Cat Teaser Toy is a simple product that takes the traditional cat teaser toy and firmly attaches it to a high-quality ABS base. The base has two elastic Velcro straps that then hold it onto your food, allowing you to play while relaxing on the sofa or playing in bed. A high-elastic spring extends forward from the front of the base and at the end of the spring, you will find an interactive cat feather. Tapping into their natural hunting instincts, most cats go wild for feathers, especially when they are moving. If your cat is a little destructive, don’t worry, the company has also included a feather replacement.
3. Bacon Bubble Machine
Get ready for your pooch to get absolutely bat-bubble-crazy with this machine which makes the bubbles smell like bacon (we’re undecided on how it tastes, however).
Go to Amazon to order yours.
4. Pooping Machine
Playing with turd has never been fun?
Available at Etsy.
5. Yoogeer 3D Catnip Fish Toy
Cats can really be the most stubborn of all the pets. When they want to play, they will let you know – but when they are bored, you will definitely know about it. However, with one of these quirky and weird toys, you can make sure that your feline friend is almost never out of fun. Yoogeer 3D Catnip Fish Toy might seem like an odd choice to you, but not to your pet: fish, as we know, are somewhat of a weak spot for any cat – and these toys have a realistic shape and look of carp, mackerel, goldfish, and others.
While this alone would be enough to entice any kitty, that is not all: the fish contain catnip inside them! Once your kitty gets a whiff, the fun time begins- and there’s nothing fishy about it. As soon as you witness your kitty going bananas over these toys, it will be clear why this weird toy was a great choice. Of course, the toys are made with durable PP material so they can withstand the true kitty onslaught- and there will be an onslaught.
6. Kitan Club Cat Cap
In case you’ve wondered how to piss off your cat and make her an Instagram celebrity all in one go, this is your answer. This set of 5 insanely adorable fluffy cat hats with bunny ears will make you laugh, cry, snap photos, and expose yourself to your kitty’s hissing- but it will all be worth it to see your kitty with this hat on. Seriously, cute enough to risk maiming. Kitan Club Cat Cap is easy to put on and won’t really irritate your cat or make her uncomfortable (although there’s nothing to stop her from being a drama queen) as all it takes is sliding it on your pet’s head. The bottom strap that goes under the chin will keep it on your pet’s head long enough for you to take some pics for social media!
The set includes 5 hats in cute pastel colors- pink, yellow, orange, mint green, and brown. These kitty caps will fit cats with a head circumference of 11” to 11.5,” so if you have a kitten or a really chubby pet, they might not be a good match.
7. Foot Fetish

9. Brooklyn Owl Unicorn Horns
When a dog just doesn’t feel like being a dog, it’s time to become a sparkly unicorn.
