Are you a pet owner (or if you prefer, a pet parent)? Chances are you like to spoil your furry friends just as much as your human friends, and there’s no time like Valentine’s Day to treat those beloved creatures.

Whether you’re going to give them special food — my cats get fancier canned food and I’ll probably treat the rabbit to some bonus dried pineapple — or you’re going to treat them to something more memorable, chances are you’re looking now and eager to make sure those goods arrive before the big day or week.

Chewy has been my go-to for all things pets for the cats for years. Since I have four and have had, at times, five, it’s been a lifesaver to get their food shipped directly to me. I treat my rabbit to a bimonthly subscription box with BinxBox, but I’m definitely poking around Chewy for some good gift ideas as well.

What better way to treat your pet (…and yourself) to the holiday of love than with some fun bookish pet gifts? Let’s see what’s out there. Note that nearly all of these are cat or dog specific, given they’re the most common household pets.

You can’t read the front of this book squeaky toy well in the picture — it was important to show off the cute dog — but it’s a spell book. Teach your pups some Tricks and Spells for $8.

I feel like this one ages me tremendously because I do remember when Snoopy moonlighted as Joe Cool. This is a fun blast from the past comic squeak toy. $15.
