6 Products That Prove Pets and Clean Homes Can Coexist
I'm literally living in an animal house. Besides my own corgi, Hank, and tuxedo cat, Nelson, my husband and I regularly pet sit for friends. This past weekend, for example, we took in an additional two felines, nudging the animal-to-human ratio to a precarious 4 to 2. Add to that the fact that we live in New York, a city not exactly known for its spacious living quarters, and you can see where I'm going with this.
Lucky for us—and all pet owners—there's no shortage of innovative products to help solve animal-specific problems and behaviors like foul odors, prolific shedding and, my personal favorite, clawed-up couches and chairs. The best of these combine technology and common sense to keep your cat and dog happy, your home fresh-smelling and clean, and your sanity in check.
