There are many home conveniences we take for granted every day. We have the ability to control the temperature in our homes with computerized heating and cooling systems that turn on and off by a schedule. We have heated blankets for winter mornings, and cup warmers so our coffee doesn’t get cold. We have water dispensers on the refrigerator to enjoy a glass of ice water any time we choose. We also have full video surveillance security systems which keep our homes and pets safe when we are away. Some comparable pet luxuries are listed below.
1. Pet Feeders:
An owner can dispense a specified amount of food for the entire day or even a weekend. The animal will have access to the food in portions that mimic when the owner is home. Some folks use these devices all of the time. It is convenient for the pet and the owner.
2. Water Dispensers:
Just like a refreshing glass of ice water, cats and dogs can enjoy a cool bowl of water whenever they step on the dispensing lever. These bowls are great for keeping debris and dust out of the water supply because the lid stays closed when not in use.
3. Climate Controlled Pet Carrier:
There are pet crates available which are temperature controlled, offering your pet a comfortable ride in any weather conditions. It will keep them safe, healthy and stress-free on their journey. Some animals are nervous to begin with, so limiting the stress of being too warm or cold will at least alleviate some of their anxiety.
4. Thermo Kitty Bed:
Miss Kit-Kat now has a little piece of her own Heaven. This bed is ingenious. According to reviews, it keeps the temperature about 10 or 15 degrees above the room temperature so she can snooze to her heart’s content. Beware loud unavoidable purring.
5. Pet Doors:
With a magnetized or battery operated collar, your pet can enter or leave the home without assistance. The door stays closed and locked until the magnetic or battery operated sensor is activated. This door keeps out other animals because it only opens with communication from the collar. It is unlikely a skunk is going to wrestle your dog for his collar to come in, and case the joint. Your pet will be safe outside knowing he can run back in the house, if he needs to without having to whine or scratch at the door. Treat pets like kids. Spoil them!
