Next week is Thanksgiving. It still feels like it’s two or three weeks away, right? I still keep thinking November just started. Alas, next week house guests will descend upon our house. And we can’t wait. This year, we’re not hosting or traveling. My in-laws are hosting at their nearby hilltown home, so we will just make the quiet, country drive to their house for Thanksgiving dinner, and otherwise laze around in pajamas, catch a parade, and definitely watch holiday movies on Hallmark.
What does that mean to me? It means that for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, the pets either come with us, help us host, or are cared for by loving family and friends. It means extra treats and extra affection. They don’t know what the holidays are! They just know there are more people in the house than before. Or that we’re traveling. For our dog, Athena, that’s a wonderful and delightful thing. For our cat, Juniper, that can be an uncertain thing. That means extra consistency and stability for her, as well as the best pet care products. Such as ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ from PetSmart.
Here are my tips for keeping a pet-friendly, odor-free home for the holidays:
1 – Cat litter, of course. Experience the confidence of 7-day odor control – guaranteed – with ARM & HAMMER™ Clump & Seal™ MicroGuard™ Cat Litter.
2 – Neutralize odor on your floors and carpets. For places outside the litter box, we use ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to neutralize odor on our floors and carpets, especially in places in which the pets hang out the most. We have a steam cleaner we use for our carpets whenever we feel the need to freshen up the rooms. I love the feeling of my feet on the rug after it’s been cleaned!
Clean your pet gear. You can run pet dishes in the dishwasher or clean them with hot, soapy water. You sanitize their dishes the same way you do for human members of the family. Make sure your cat’s water bowl is always clean and filled with fresh drinking water. Wash your cat toys in the washing machine if possible, as well as bedding and pillows. Clean the furniture areas where the pets hang out regularly. We have our couches vacuumed weekly, and will wash kitten and dog blankets, beds, and toys periodically.
Litter box odor is a sensitive subject in our house. While it’s hard to keep a house immaculate with dogs and a cat, we do try. Even after you scoop cat litter, bacterial odor can keep growing. New ARM & HAMMER MicroGuard™ technology seals and destroys immediate odor, and also prevents the growth of future bacterial odors for 7-day odor control, guaranteed. We can now stay stress-free when having guests over, knowing we don’t need to worry about our house smelling like the litter box.
This is the biggest advancement in cat litter history. Our odor free home makes for a happy home, and happy cat. When we don’t have to worry about litter box odors, that means less stress on us, and more time for our relationship with Juniper.
