From Cats in Couture to Dogs on Diets

Pets can now enjoy living the same lap of luxury that is usually reserved for humans with a wide array of personified pet products.

Humans have always had a fascination with spoiling their pets with lavish (and often unnecessary) items. Personified pet products allow animals to enjoy the same indulgences as humans and sometimes, even let them enjoy a life more luxurious than their owners.

Gone are the days when dogs slept on the ground and cats had simple litter boxes in the corner of the room. It is now more common that a pooch could sleep in a nicer bed than its owner, and a feline's litter box could be shaped like a castle.

Not only do pets have access to a large assortment of people-inspired products, but an influx of services typically reserved for humans have begun to surface as well.

Everything from personalized kitty photo shoots to doggie dating services are making animals more like people than ever before.
