Spring Cleaning

Everyone feels better when his or her surroundings are clean and comfortable. Pets are no exception. As you clean house this spring or at any time of the year, consider the following options to make your home and your pet fresh and happy:

  • Use synthetic, rubber-backed mats by doors, under food dishes and in your pet's sleeping area. They collect dirt and moisture and are easy to clean.
  • Regularly brush and groom your pet. This will not only strengthen your relationship with your furry friend, but also improve the cleanliness of your home. You'll notice that your pet will shed less if regularly groomed.
  • Remove pet hair from upholstery and furniture by wearing a damp rubber glove and swiping it over the couch, pillows, blankets, rugs, etc.
  • Keep toxic house cleaning solutions, poisons, paints, insecticides, antifreeze and medications in a locked cabinet or in a room your pet doesn't have access to.
  • To clean up pet stains, let them dry and then pour white vinegar on the spot and leave the spot to dry on its own. The vinegar doesn't stain and your pet will not make "mistakes" over and over again on the same spot thanks to the vinegar smell.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
