Feel like you’re chasing your tail attempting to keep on top of the domestics? Try our handy pet hacks to cut down the amount of time you spend tending to your furry housemates.
11. Aluminum Foil Couch Saver
Keep your cats off the couch with aluminum foil.
Tear off a piece of foil long enough to cover the top of your couch, and set it on the cushions.
The feel and sound of the foil drives cats nuts and they’ll immediately jump off.
12. Fur Filter for Dog Bathing
If you wash your dog in the bathtub or shower, you’re begging for a clogged drain.
Keep fur out of the drain with a mesh-type scrubbing pad.
In a shower, clip the pad to the drain plate with a bobby pin.
In a bathtub, wedge two pads under the stopper from two sides.
The pads catch fur but let water flow through.
13. Tip-Proof Watering Dish
Some dogs can’t grasp the idea that you don’t have to climb into the water dish to take a drink.
So rather than refilling their dishes 10 times a day, make a tip-proof watering dish out of an old Bundt cake pan.
Drive a stake through the hole in the middle of the pan. Now your dog will have to find some other source of amusement.
