30 Wholesome Photos Of Pets Refusing To Part With Their Favorite Toys

All pets have a beloved toy that they sleep with and cannot live without. Even if their prized toys are old and ragged, they still like to snuggle and cuddle with these cozy and comfortable friends. That’s why many pet owners have to fix and wash old toys instead of disposing of them. And of course, our pets will never leave their friends alone. They will watch and guard their beloved toys until they are fixed and washed.

If there’s one thing that is cuter than a furry pet, it’s a furry pet with their favorite toy. Some animals bond with their most adored toy for their entire lives, snuggling up to it from puppyhood to old age. Naturally, these stuffed toys become tattered and torn over time. Loyal owners do their best to patch up the rips and tears while their pets eagerly look on.

These pets can’t part with their favorite toys and guard them while owners fix and wash them. Scroll down to enjoy! After all, we hope that these pets can play with their beloved toys for years to come.

As these photos show, for dogs, cats, and other pets, toys are not a luxury, but a necessity.

Toys are important to them, because they help fight boredom when you have to leave your pets at home, and provide comfort when they’re feeling nervous. In fact, toys can even help prevent animals from developing certain problem behaviors.

Cats can be pretty picky about toys, but dogs are often more than willing to play with any object they can get their paws on. That also means dog owners need to be particularly careful when monitoring their four-legged friend’s playtime to prevent any “unscheduled” activities.

According to The Humane Society of the United States, the things that are usually most attractive to dogs are often the very things that are the most dangerous. But you can dog-proof your home by removing string, ribbon, rubber bands, children’s toys, pantyhose and other inedible items that could be swallowed.

When it comes to cat toy safety, inspect all of your feline’s toys periodically for any loose pieces, wires, or clamps, especially where the toy attaches to the sting (if there is one).

Ingrid King, a former veterinary hospital manager and author of five cat books, writes that many toys use safety pin-type attachments, and it wouldn’t be impossible for a cat to chew firmly enough on that part of the toy to pop the pin open.

“Keep fishing pole toys out of your cat’s reach when they’re not in use. Cats can become entangled in the string, or even eat and swallow it, which can cause an intestinal blockage,” King explains.

“Don’t let cats play unsupervised with electronic toys that have moving parts. Depending on the toy, paws and whiskers may get caught in the mechanism and your cat may be injured, or at the very least, traumatized.”
