For our four-legged friends, I suggest drugs … for the cats, at least. Catnip cigars ($6.95) at the Old Town Cat House (400 San Felipe NW, 505.924.1166) make kitty oh-so-happy and give us hours of cheap entertainment. Watching a cat looped-out on crazy-plant is a gift in itself. Am I right, or am I right? For the pooches, hit Albuquerque Dogtown (3845 Rio Grande NW, 505.341.4484) for new and gently used dog clothing and accessories. Be sure to check out the beds; they have the most over-the-top luxurious pet beds that I’ve ever seen around these parts.
Every kid needs his/her own copy of The Green Album, a 2011 release featuring covers of classic Muppets (muppetsmusic.com) songs by modern artists, including Weezer, OK Go, My Morning Jacket and Andrew Bird. Fabü fave: Rachael Yamagata’s “I’m Going to Go Back There Someday.”
Finally, who doesn’t need a Diane von Furstenberg (dvf.com) iPhone case? It’s only $20. You’re totally online right now ordering it, aren’t you? Could you at least finish reading the column first, please? Manners!
