Pet owners investing more in celebrating their furry friends

Birthday parties aren’t just for people anymore.

Pet owners are celebrating big milestones with all of the fanfare that comes with it: decorations, favors, presents, outfits. Some even rent out a venue.

And of course, there’s the cake.
