You always find two types of pet parents; the liberals who do not care about kids ruining the sofas and the strict ones who make sure that pets remain on floors. Whichever kind you are, we’re sure you’ll agree that your pets must enjoy their home as much as you do!
Having pets around is always a delightful and enriching experience. But it can also make one mad at times. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you live with pets.
1. Cut off the edges:
Dogs & cats always love to roam and jump around. Get furniture with round edges or corners to avoid your pets getting hurt.
2. The reason behind “FURniture”:
Pets have an annoying tendency of sticking to the fabric. So if vacuuming twice a day isn’t your idea of fun, you may do well to choose leather or leatherette upholstery. Both of these are odor-resistant and non-adhering to fur. We’ve also been told that cats who have an alternative scratching post tend to leave leather well alone – so you can test that out!
3. Camouflage 101:
Look for patterned sofas, if you are in love with fabric ones to avoid visible pet hairs. Another option would be to buy a sofa with removable covers so that maintenance becomes that much easier.
4. Pause to clean them paws:
You need to clean your pet paws first if your pet comes on the bed. It is also better if you stick to easily washable bed linen for your bed.
5. Hair today, still here tomorrow
Pet hair can be found in abundance on rugs as they might not be visible. A light dhurrie might be a wiser choice, though you’ll have to velcro it to the ground to avoid slippage when your furkid zooms around the house.
6. Ready, steady
Remember to keep your floor lamps and decor items away from pets to avoid being knocked off by them. You can also look for ones with more stable leg and bed designs of lamps.
