Top 100 Pet Trends of 2012

From Frowning Kitten Videos to Feline Detour Tunnels

— January 19, 2013 — Lifestyle
If this past year's pet trends have taught us anything, it's that there is no limits to what people will do or buy for their animals. From feline detour tunnels to dazzling dog accessories, owners continue to purchase anything and everything that could make their pet happy.

Many human products were re-appropriated to fit an animal clientele. For example, The Greyhound Rain Coat looks like it could be for both the pet and owner. Another find includes feline fashion accessories, such as scarves for cats. Although your kitty might not be totally impressed by this, at least he or she will look good!

The pet industry is a growing area, so stay up-to-date on innovations and developments in this field with Trend Hunter's Pet Trend Report.
