20 Weird Things People Are Buying On Amazon For Pets That Are Actually Brilliant
People buy some weird but brilliant stuff for their pets on Amazon. Granted, they’ve got a pretty extensive pet section, so it does make sense that you can purchase some pretty bizarre products for your dog or cat. If you’re willing to sort through the most ridiculous stuff you can buy your furry friend (like a toy for sexually frustrated dogs and a hockey stick add-on that lets you fling your pet’s poop), you can actually find some strange yet ingenious things you had no idea you needed.
It’s relatively easy to find the best products for your pet sold on Amazon, and that’s because other people are buying them, too. They’ve got an awesome page called “Movers and Shakers,” which shows the products with a huge spike in sales over the past 24 hours, and it’s even got a subcategory for pet supplies. On top of that, customers are always leaving new and recent reviews, so you can easily see which bizarre but genius pet products have done wonders as far as improving Fido’s life — because nothing says “I am the happiest dog on the planet” quite like dog-healthy ice cream that’s made to taste like Maple Bacon.
