1. President George W. Bush – Don’t be surprised if former President George W. Bush gifts his cat Willie with the Litter Kwitter. Robins says, “Cats are really smart. With “purr”severance and the help of this DVD you can train fluffy to flush.” This can also be purchased at Petco.

Robins says, “Avoid the traditional and celebrate the holidays by adding a furry or scaly friend to the mix.” PETCO carries My First Home Hamster Kits. Robins cautions, “both hamsters and reptiles require a commitment, so make sure your family is ready for a pet before buying one.”
4. Lindsay Lohan – Chose the Patento Dog-e Walk, for her dog. It is an incredible training device for dogs. Robins says, “This is the first time it has hit the U.S. shelves and can only be found at PETCO, so I’d grab one before it sells out.”
