Guess it was inevitable

Blue Buffalo, the cat and dog food company that’s rated tops for nutrition, vitamins and so on, has a new feature on its home page now.

You can create a Trading Card of your cat or dog – and even send it to the company for its contest. And there are other sites to help you create a card. Just Google ‘pet trading cards.’

The newest fad for pet parents? It’s more permanent than just a ton of photos on your phone, I must admit. But I don’t know if I want to go that far. Somehow I question whether pet trading cards will ever be as big as baseball or football or other sports … especially when you don’t get bubble gum with them.
