So I thought it would be a fun idea to create a "New Pet Welcome Basket" to congratulate a family on their new addition.
This gift is actually really inexpensive, since I picked up most of the supplies at the dollar or grocery store, including a $1 food dish, that I used my Silhouette to personalize with the cat's name and some pawprints:
So much more special than a generic dish!
My basket also included: A collar, a food dish, a few cat toys, a little treat jar and a bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain Cat Food (to stay with the fishing theme I used the Whitefish Flavor.)
Other ideas for things you could include: Treats, a leash, a brush, etc.
I used a basket, a little 'fishing net' and some paper basket filler to present all the pet care items:
Isn't it a sweet idea to think a new pet gets to come home to a dish with their name on it?
Plus, by including Rachael Ray Nutrish in your gift basket, it helps get a new pet off to a great start. Rachael Ray's line of pet food (she also has a line for dogs) has zero grains, glutens or fillers, by products, artificial flavors or preservatives. The number one ingredient is REAL whitefish.
I have been feeding it to my own 'fur-baby' (Charlotte.. yes.. this bowl was actually for her!) and she loves it!
Plus I'd feel good buying it, since Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue, created to help shelter pets. As of today, over $9 million has gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for animals in need.
You don't have to make a special trip to find Nutrish! This is the first premium pet food brand that will be available at your grocery store, Target, Walmart or even Amazon!
