Ah, April Fools’ Day. It’s the day that pranksters come out to play, and the day that your favorite websites like to have a little fun. Well, we’re not going to play any tricks today (or are we?). Instead, we’d like to take this April Fools’ to celebrate all the four-legged jokers we’re so fond of. You know who we’re talking about—the cats that like to hide our keys safely underneath their warm bodies while we search for them desperately. Or the dogs that love to gather up just one sock and stow it away in their own special hiding spot, never to be reunited with its forlorn mate. We could go on about our beloved funny pets and their pranks, but why not check out some of our zaniest, wackiest, sometimes silly and always entertaining pet supplies? You’re sure to love them, and your playful pets will get a kick out of them for sure.
For cats that love getting up to no good in a crinkly tunnel, and also enjoy sitting on piles of laundry, there’s actually a toy for that. Yep, it’s the Four Paws Super Catnip Crazy Pants Cat Tunnel. These multi-colored pants are fit for a clown—a whiskered one, in this case.
What about your canine comedian? Your stockpile of playful pet supplies wouldn’t be complete without Multipet’s Silly Sandwich Dog Toy. It’s piled high with all the toppings—tomato, cheese, lettuce and a whole cow or chicken! It’s the perfect April Fools’ gift for goofy dogs of all ages.
Speaking of chickens, we’ve even got the famously classic rubber chicken for your pup’s squeaking pleasure. If she’s got a bad-to-the-bone style, get her a Fat Cat Floppability Barnyard Bullies Suspicious Chicken Dog Toy to pal around with on April Fools’ Day.
Don’t forget the Fat Cat Classic Springy Worms Cat Toy with “Zoom Around the Room” organic catnip stuffing for kitties that dream of living the farm cat life. If your zany cat needs an extra dose of catnip to spur her high-energy antics, she’ll really go for the Yeowww! Catnip Cigar Cat Toy. It’s hand-sewn and rolled up with the highest quality of premium-blend catnip, so it’s perfect for quirky cats.
For something even more out of the ordinary for April Fools’, you might enjoy some of our pop culture dog toys. You know how your pupster sometimes leaves little surprises for you? Why not repay the favor with the hilarious ZippyPaws Emojiz Squeaky Plush Dog Toy—a larger-than-life version of the emoji. There’s also the always-surprised Multipet Mr. Bill Plush Dog Toy that cries “ohhh nooo” whenever your dog bites down.
Or how about some toys that let your pets face their biggest hecklers? Multipet’s Flea and Tick Plush Dog Toys turn the tables on these would-be pests when your victorious pup finally gets to bite back. And let’s not forget about your kitty’s worst nightmare—the recurring hairball. Even though a real hairball is no kitty’s friend, the West Paw Design Hairball Catnip Cat Toy surely will be. It’s stuffed full of catnip and makes an intriguing jingle bell noise that no feline can resist.
Dogs that are forced to cohabitate with their archenemy (the cat) can take out their stress on the super mean Fat Cat Mini Terrible Nasty Scaries Dog Toy. If they’re just a little ball of nerves all the time, you can get them a Hartz Bug Eyes Dog Toy for April Fools’ Day. It’s a really eye-popping experience, and totally hilarious.
While we’re on the subject of eyes, this next product is seriously eye-opening. Nosy canines can get an eyeful of the neighbor’s yard or what’s happening on the street with the PetPeek Fence Window for Pets. This bubble porthole window is big enough for your pup to fit his whole head and snout into, and it makes him look like a cute, curious astronaut from planet dog-next-door.
We can’t let it all go to the dogs—ferrets want to have some fun, too! If you’re a lucky pet parent to one of these spirited souls, you know they can get up to their share of mischief. Give yours his very own gator to cuddle up to with the Marshall Hide-N-Sleep Alligator Ferret Hideaway. If scaly creatures aren’t his thing, how about a cozy octopus hideout?
Little troublemakers with a charming side will look adorable popping their heads out of a banana peel, a cuddly monkey or their very own pirate ship hammock.
Next time your goofster does something that makes you laugh, be sure to snap a pic and share it with us. We love seeing what kind of sidesplitting antics your funny pets get into. And don’t forget to pick out some of our more interesting, amusing and sometimes downright funny pet supplies to surprise your practical joker for April Fools’ Day.
