D&C In­fin­ity Cat Scratcher and Lounge, $129, CON­TAIN THE CHAOS

Pets are messy, but there are some tricks to min­imis­ing the dam­age! Keep your fur­ni­ture in­tact with a funky cat scratcher that won’t be an eye­sore. Feed your pet on a cute tray, and make sure garbage and food tins are kept se­curely away from pry­ing paws.


There are many pros and cons to weigh up when de­cid­ing be­tween hard­wood floor­ing and car­pet. While a wood is cleaner and makes it easier to clean up your pet’s mis­takes, it’s also ex­pen­sive and prone to scratches. If you choose wood, pick a re­sis­tant ma­te­rial such as oak, maple or bam­boo.


Pro­vid­ing a safe en­vi­ron­ment for in­quis­i­tive pets is sim­i­lar to child-proof­ing your home. Many de­vices that we use to keep kids safe can also be used for pets, such as safety gates and latches on cup­boards con­tain­ing chem­i­cals or medicine. If you have a cu­ri­ous cat or mis­chievous bunny, keep your elec­tri­cal cords as tightly wrapped and hid­den as pos­si­ble.
