19 Unnecessary Pet Accessories

From $2,000 Dollar Critter Cribs to Lavish Dog Fashions

— March 31, 2013 — Lifestyle
As an animal lover, I know what it's like to be crazy about a pet, however these unnecessary pet accessories are a bit over the top.

Most of the dogs I have met in my life are never more happy than when they are simply out for a walk or chasing after a regular old tennis ball. As for the cats, well most of the time they are in a better mood if they are eating or being left entirely alone to contemplate the way only cats know how to.

That being said, I don't doubt that some of these unnecessary pet accessories are more than enjoyed by the spoiled pups and kittens that use them. Whether they are chilling in a canine caravan, maxing and relaxing in a cat hammock or posing for a photo on their pet vacations, these animals are taking full advantage of these rather unnecessary pet accessories.
