Five perfect Christmas gifts for your pet

Still stuck on what to get your pet for Christmas? Try one of these!

The Meteorlight K-9 LED Ball (£12.99) is perfect for those early morning or late afternoon winter walks. The durable, water-resistant tennis-ball-sized exercise toy gives off a steady glow, comes in four colours and even floats! Most importantly, it brings an end to those lost hours spent hacking through brambles on dark January days searching for your dog's lost ball.

The ever-popular Pet Friendly Places to Stay (£9.99) by AA Publishing is back for another year. Fully updated, the 496-page guide features more than 1,000 AA-inspected hotels, B&Bs and campsites in Britain and Ireland. It's the detail that makes this guide so good, such as offering additional information on everything from exercise areas to food to whether your pet can stay in the room unattended.

Or if you'd prefer a charitable gift, the RSPCA has a lost pet bed and breakfast scheme. Just £10 pays for one night's boarding costs for a rescued animal at one of their centres, as well as a good meal. The recipient receives a personalised printed card or e-card, and the knowledge that a lost cat or dog will be having a very merry Christmas on them.

Silly, but fun, the Jolly Moggy Micro Mouse from the Cats Protection shop (£9.99) will keep your cat occupied for... well, however mischievous (or intelligent) your beloved puss is. The remote-controlled mini mouse racer is just 70mm long, runs on two AA batteries and should keep the whole family entertained well into the new year.

The Catit® Design Senses Massage Center (£11.79) offers your cat an oasis of calm and relaxation with the ultimate pampering and massage experience. It has a variety of sculpted textures and surfaces, the acu-pressure mat provides pressure-point paw massage, and the body stroke groomers stimulate face and back glands. Catnip can be added to heighten the sensory experience, while the gum stimulator massages and cleans teeth and gums.
