This spacious shop is like Toys “R” Us for pets: Find furball-approved knickknacks such as a Cheerful Pet boiled-wool toys ($5) and Animal Sounds’ touch-triggered Babble Ball ($10), which emits coyote, lion and frog sounds and is sure to keep your pet—though maybe not your neighbors—amused while you’re out. It’s not all play, though: Utilitarian finds include colorful carriers ($90–$175) and slings ($40) from local brands BK Atelier and Gangs of New Yorkie, training aids like a bitter apple spray ($8) and CatToids breath mints to freshen up kitty’s morning stank ($3).
