Writers always struggle to make characters well-rounded. There are many ways to do this, and one of the easiest is to give them a pet. Blofeld had his fluffy white cat, Long John Silver had his parrot, and the Beebe kids had Misty the horse. Even Hades, the Greek god of the underworld, had Cerberus, a three-headed dog. (Fun fact: the word “kérberos” means “spotted,” so this terrifying guardian was named Spot.)
Most of us, even those that aren’t mythic Greek deities, have probably had a pet at some point. Probably a dog or cat, maybe a goldfish won at the fair. Some people have reptiles or insects or rodents. Sometimes they have rodents as food for their reptiles. I’ve always wanted an octopus tank, but they require a lot of time, precise engineering, and money to maintain, and the beasties themselves don’t do well in captivity.
April is Pet Month, so whether your tastes run to the common pets, or you have something a little more exotic to pamper, we have mugs for you!
1. Puppy Power
The #1 choice for pets for about 15,000 years running.
The best argument against the flat Earth theory is that if it were, cats would have pushed everything off the edge by now.
3. Best Hugs
I’m not afraid of snakes, but I also don’t understand their pet appeal. You do you, though.
4. On the Farm
I always enjoyed visiting my cousin’s farm because we’d always get to ride the horses at the end of the work day.
5. Hare Today
Rabbits are very popular pets for apartment-dwellers. Unless you’re in a Monty Python movie.
These are just a few of the animal mugs we stock. You can search for other animals and specific breeds from our home page. Have your own menagerie? U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
