12 Handmade Mother’s Day Gifts for the Fur Mom

Don’t worry, fur moms! I didn’t forget you! Having no human children ourselves, Ian and I definitely treat our pets like our own. We love our two dogs, Rex and Dobby, and our rat, Evie, more than anything.

Despite what a lot of people think, being a fur mom is pretty difficult sometimes too! Our babies get sick and need repeated vet visits (we have one dog in heart failure and we’re there every three months or more), they need feeding regularly, we have to exercise them and love them and train them. When we want to go out or on vacation, we have to make sure that they’re cared for or we’re home in time to feed and walk them. And this is only the tip of the iceberg of responsibilities when caring for our fur babies.

Long story short, fur moms deserve some praise too! Here are 12 super cool handmade gift ideas for the proud fur mom.
