under $100: pets!

by Grace Bonney

today d*s is going to the dogs…and cats…and birds. when i opened up the call for under $100 topics last week dozens of you emailed and requested a pet roundup so i thought i’d focus my first weekly under $100 column on pets! i’ve always felt that pet roundups skew unfairly towards dogs so i’ve tried to include cat and bird products as much as possible (go cats!). i’m still searching for stylish fish products, but they tend to skew a little on the expensive side because of the cost of glass containers, etc. (and that plastic wall pod doesn’t seem to be super humane). so, i’ve rounded up over 55 of my favorite affordable pet designs on the market- i hope you enjoy them as much as i did! be sure to click “read more” below because the roundup continues well after the jump…
