Furry and Feathered Pets Unwrap Their Presents On Christmas Morning

"Pets are people too," is what some pet owners might say. While, biologically, it doesn't make too much sense, there is some metaphorical truth to it, ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. Giving is in the air and it doesn't stop at our animal companions.

However, recent studies prove that some animals react drastically differently when us humans spread the holiday cheer by giving them wrapped presents. Let's examine the findings.
