17 Awesome St. Patrick’s Day Etsy Finds for Pets (Photos)

I love me some Etsy. Part artistic brilliance, part drunken hot-glue-and-glitter festival, I can get lost clicking through the crafty site for hours. Fortunately, part of my job involves doing just that, and finding unique, fun pet items to share here.

In this case, I went searching through Etsy to find out what’s new in the world of handmade accessories for St. Patrick’s Day, and found some great picks for dogs, cats, and even guinea pigs. Does your guinea pig need a festive sweater dress? Probably not, but it is awesome and you should get one anyway. Also, you should take your guinea pig’s picture in said dress and send it to me, please. Because I love that stuff.

From cat collars to dog treats, and everything in between, here are my picks for the 17 best St. Patrick’s Day finds on Etsy, just for pets.

  • This is not a scrunchy, actually. 10 of 18
    This is not a scrunchy, actually.
    I totally thought this was just a scrunchy stuck on a cat's neck. It's actually a pretty clever design that slips over a cat's collar like a sleeve.

    That being said, if you cover your cat's collar, make sure the cover doesn't get in the way of the cat collar's break-away clasp.

    (Available on Etsy, $4.)
  • Another Collar Option 11 of 18
    Another Collar Option
    This seasonal kitty collar includes break-away clasp and a bell to warn the birds and/or annoy you in the middle of the night.

    (Available on Etsy, $12.)
  • WANT 12 of 18
    I want this pug. In this hat. Right now.

    Any of the hats from Etsy Shop 'To Scarborough Fair'
    Far and above my favorite maker of cat hats on Etsy, not just for the detail work but because how do you get that cat to stay still like that?

  • I Have Elfin Magic 14 of 18
    I Have Elfin Magic
    One more hat from To Scarborough Fair because I just had to. Hand-felted wool hat edged with teeny-tiny glass beads, for the magical kitty in your life.

  • Tam o’ Shanter, for the Proud Scotch-Irish Pup 15 of 18
    Tam o' Shanter, for the Proud Scotch-Irish Pup

    And of course, there's a tutu.
    You know what will make your neighborhood smile? Seeing you walk your dog wearing a tutu. The dog, I mean. Although I'm sure you can totally rock a tutu also. In fact, that would be even better. But at least the dog. Please?
