Bored animals can easily get anxious, resulting in rebellious behavior such as furniture gnawing and forming a punk-rock cover band. Appease puling pets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pet supplies and more at Preuss Pets.
The Preuss family's vaulting, 22,000-square-foot supply store enhances owners’ relationships with their pets. Dogs delight at the Everlasting Fun Ball, which coyly encases treats in an unbreakable chew-toy ($19.99), and cats keep biceps rippling with a Cat It play circuit and workout center ($13.99). A friendly staff of animal experts guides visitors to the right gear for their particular pet project, whether it's to eradicate mid-Thanksgiving silences with a Teach Your Parrot to Talk CD ($20) or to teach a lizard to properly lounge on a Zilla aquatic basking platform (from $19.99). Sweeping selections of ethically raised animals, including clownfish ($24.99), cleaner shrimp ($24.99), gerbils ($14.99), hamsters ($12.99–$19.99), and guinea pigs ($14.99–$49.99), populate the vivacious store, which is committed to eco-friendly business practices.
