With Chinese New Year right around the corner, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show [2] mid-month, and, of course, New York Fashion Week on the horizon, your furry friend has lots to be excited about. February is the month for lovers, with Valentine's Day dedicated to showing others just how much you care — especially your special pets — and also National Cat Health Month and National Wild Bird Feeding Month, along with a few other animal days. Click through for a collection of this month's must haves along with more information about all the exciting celebrations in February.

Cat Happiness

February is National Cat Health Month, and what cat doesn't love chewing on some grass? Grow your own cat grass from seed [7] ($2) so your kitty can chew away whenever she wants, and this sweet, fresh grass also aids in digestion.

Here, Birdie!

This month is also National Wild Bird Feeding Month, making this wire hanging bird feeder [8] ($17) a great purchase for your outdoor birdies. With an extra wire liner to keep squirrels away, your chickadees will love stopping by for a tasty treat.

Ring in the Chinese New Year with your pup with a box of dog-friendly fortune cookies [9] ($24 for 50). Each cookie contains a special doggie message.
