So when you’re getting that something special for your quiet time, think of that one who gives you unconditional love and attention. Pet resorts were searched 260% more during 2018-2019, as were outdoor cat playgrounds (up 512% this year in searches), and cakes for dogs up 167%, than they were in 2017-2018.
