Whether you’re shopping for Christmas gifts for fellow pet lovers or for pets of your own, Black Friday is a good time to pick up a deal or two on items you might not have considered before. Sometimes that little extra discount is good enough to check someone (human or animal) off your shopping list.
This year, we’ve highlighted a couple of deals that focus on pet tech, as well as a few that focus on comfort. If you’re looking for more, we have posts covering dog raincoats, cat water fountains, cat toys, and even fish tanks.
If you can’t find anything to give after looking through all that, you can browse all gifts for pets here.
Here are our top five best Black Friday pet deals to save you some cash this year:
1. 25 Percent Off Petcube Play
Update, 7:50a Pacific: Looks like they bumped the sale up to 25 percent off, a total savings of $50.
If you’ve been thinking about picking up a pet camera, this might be the best opportunity to do it. The Petcube Play is a full 1080p HD camera with 138 degree viewing angle and night vision. It has a built-in laser toy, as well as two-way audio so you can talk to and play with your pet across any distance. This is great for people who work long hours and wish they could spend more time with their pet. There are apps for both iOS and Android, which you can use to capture video and photos to share. If you should run into any trouble, their support staff is available 24/7. It also comes in silver, if you prefer. This deal saves you a little under $40 on the regular price.
The Petcube 720p version is also on sale today, coming in at $99, a savings of 34 percent or $50.99.

Price: $149.00 (25 percent off MSRP)
2. 20 Percent Off Vesper Cat Furniture, Walnut, V-High Base
We included Vesper in our cat tree post because we think it’s about the sharpest looking cat furniture going right now. It’s designed to fit into modern homes and still look good where the carpeted stuff might not mesh. Included with this tower are memory foam cushions, so your cat will be comfortable wherever they decide to rest. All the edges of the New Zealand pine MDF are rounded for safety and a higher-end look. The Black Friday savings on this is over $20, bringing the price under $100.
There’s also a Black Friday week del running on the Petmaker Kitty Cat Condo with Overhead Balcony, which is far cheaper.

3. 25 Percent Off Petmaker Cuddle Round Suede Terry Pet Bed
Pet beds are great because it gives your dog or cat somewhere to lay that isn’t your couch or bed. Whether they actually do it might be another matter, but this is still a great opportunity to pick up an ultra-cheap bed to offer them. This simple-looking bed features a removable machine washable insert so you can keep the bed fresh. The deal saves you $23 bucks on an already relatively inexpensive item.
