Home Decor with Pets in Mind

petcentricdesign.jpg

Decorate your home with your pets in mind. Some pet lovers not only buy pet supplies, but are creating their own animal-friendly design solutions in their home. The New York Times recently ran a fun article on pet-centric design, Raising the Bar on Pet Décor.

Amy Britton, an interior designer who owns Artisan Kitchens in Osterville, Mass., on Cape Cod, said that more of her clients are asking her to include amenities for their pets as part of their renovations. One example is a kitchen island with alcoves for food and water dishes, drawers for leashes and treats, and roll-out storage bins to hold bulk kibble.

Increase Litter Box Appeal for Your Cat

scoopfree719.jpg

A common problem for cat owners is getting their kitties to actually use their litter box. Recently we ran across a helpful article on the subject, 10 Tips for Maximizing Litter Box Appeal. These tips are offered by animal behaviorist Pam Johnson-Bennett, author of Starting from Scratch: How to Correct Behavior Problems in Your Adult Cat where you can find more useful information. A summary of the litterbox tips:

1.  Most cats prefer a soft, unscented scoopable litter. Texture is important to cats and the feel of a soft substrate on their paws is generally more appealing. Also, with a cat's excellent sense of smell, the highly scented litters can be offensive.

2.  Use an uncovered box to allow for maximum comfort and to increase escape potential. Cats, especially in a multicat environment, need to feel they can easily escape from the box in order to prevent being ambushed by a companion cat.

3.  Keep the litter level of the box at about three inches. As you scoop soiled litter, be sure to top off the box to maintain a consistent level.

4.  Scoop waste from the box twice a day. Nobody wants to use an unflushed toilet.

5.  Thoroughly dump used litter and completely scrub the box once or twice a month. If the box still smells after being thoroughly scrubbed then it's time for a new one.

6.  The box should be the appropriate size for your cat. Don't ask a large cat to squeeze into a small box.

7.  In multicat households you should have the same number of boxes as cats.

8.  Don't place litter boxes all in one area. Scatter the boxes throughout the house so lower-ranking cats don't have to pass a higher-ranking cat's area and risk conflict.

9.  Don't locate the litter box near the cat's feeding station.

10.  Don't use litter box liners.

How to Find Appropriate Toys for Your Particular Cat

shinecattoys.jpg
Do your kitty cat's toys lie around the house abandoned and neglected? If so, it may be that your cat just has the wrong toys.

To solve this common problem, the helpful cat lovers at Yahoo Shine suggest performing a toy test. Try offering different types of toys to see what he/she likes or dislikes. Some recommended questions to ask yourself:

  • Does your cat prefer toys that have a soft mouth feel?
  • Does your cat prefer "air hunting" with toys that allow her to leap?
  • Does your cat seem intimidated by toys that make noise?
  • Do cloth-type toys annoy her because they get stuck in her claws or does she like that she can grasp them so easily?
  • Does your cat react more quickly to the life-like feathers on a particular toy?
  • Does she prefer toys with longer wands that keep you at more of a distance?
  • Are smaller toys preferred over larger ones?
  • Does the sound a particular toy makes as it moves on the floor trigger your cat's interest more than others?
