We love our pets and want to make sure they feel like family members, but our homes are not always "friendly" to our four-legged friends. It may be necessary to make some adjustments when we get a new pet or move to a new house with our pet.


First of all, choose durable materials. No matter how much you love your pet, you do not want your home to look like "gone to the dogs". Avoid materials that can be chewed. Any exposed wood in your furniture can become a chewing toy, especially for a little dog.


Find the floor that suits you. Tiles, vinyl, and stone are resistant to stains and scratches. Rugs and carpets may not look like ideal flooring for pets, but they do have some advantages. They provide a non-slip and comfortable surface for both walking and sleeping. Also unlike hard flooring, they absorb the sounds of footsteps. This will make your home quieter. Just choose a color that matches your pet's hair so that the hairs are not visible.


When you decide to get a pet, the first thing you may need to sacrifice is your dream of an expensive sofa. Whether you like it or not, your pet will climb on the couch and therefore it should be sturdy. The cover also should be easy to clean, while scratches should be taken for granted. No matter how many special toys I have bought, my cat prefers to sharpen her nails at the corner of the sofa.


Incorporate pet accessories into your home decor. A climbing composition for cats or a cute dog bed, not only serves functional needs but can also contribute to the aesthetics of your place.


Think about your pets' daily routine and what they like to do. What does your pet want to do during the day? When do they prefer to eat their meals or sleep? These are just some of the goal-setting shareware that you can use. Make sure they always have food and water available. Also constantly accessible must need to be their sleeping area and sand for cats. Especially when you are not at home, they should be able to easily reach all their toys.


You may need to add fuses to some cabinets and drawers because some pets maybe will find a way to open whatever they can reach. As we know, "curiosity killed the cat", probably sometimes the dog too. Remove fragile items from low tables and shelves if you have a dog. If you have a cat it does not apply. If cats want to throw something, no matter how high you put it, they will reach it.


For their safety, make sure you have adequate fencing and outdoor space available. Even if your pet lives exclusively indoors, it is essential that they can spend some time outside, even if it is a small balcony, as long as there is no risk of falling or being injured.


Your pet gives you so much love. Give some back by creating a home that is safe and comfortable for everyone.
