What Pets Do While You're at Work (Paperback)--Review


If you feel guilty when you leave your pets home alone, this book is for you. Yes, they may mope, mew and whine, look up at you with sad big eyes, but don't let them fool you. What Pets Do While You’re at Work by Jason Bergund and Bev West is an "unauthorized album of caught-in-the-act photos your beloved furry ones never meant for you to see". As soon as you back out the drive, they party party party.

This handy (approx 6 " x 4") paperback is filled with real-life funny pet photos and captions. Great book for laughs and a perfect stocking stuffer.

Pet Allergies--Consumer Reports Recommends Vacuums

According to a recent People's Pharmacy column responding to a cat owner with an allergic sister, pet allergies may be aggravated by vacuuming:

This sounds counterintuitive, but vacuuming during your sister’s visit might actually make her symptoms worse. Some vacuum cleaners actually spew small particles into the air and make the environment more allergenic.

As cited in the column, the October 2007 Consumer Reports has recommended the following vacuums for ridding your home of tiny alergy-causing particles



Hoover U5140-900 Tempo Widepath Bagged Upright Vacuum features a 15-inch cleaning path for super fast vacuuming for all of us who would really rather be doing something else.

Product Features:

* Headlight illuminates cleaning path
* Powerful 12-amp motor; 15-inch cleaning width
* Allergen filtration system captures dust mites, ragweed, common pollens
* Check-bag indicator, easy-open bag door
* Onboard dusting brush, furniture nozzle, crevice tool, 2 extension wands; 1-year warranty


Eureka 4870GZ Boss Smart-Vac Upright Vacuum is "equipped with a unique, sealed HEPA filtration system that captures 99.97 percent of dust, pollen, allergens, and bacteria."



Twilight Kenmore Canister Vacuum Model: 27514

Product Features

* Pet Powermate motorized attachment is ideal for cleaning pet hair from furniture
*Upper and Lower Quick Releases for convenient attachment of onboard tools
* Exclusive Stair Grip enables vacuum to rest on staircase for easy stair cleaning
* Electronic Performance Indicator tells when bag is full or to check for clogs
* Cleaning tools store on board for convenient above floor cleaning
