Whether you’re a one pet household or your furmily is full, there are bound to be a few whoopsies along the way - and we’re not talking about tootsie roll accidents on the carpets! How many of these common pet owner mistakes are you guilty of?
1. Rushing the Introductions
Introducing cats and introducing dogs is a vital part of being a fur-parent. While many of us rush to get our new pets home and comfortable, we often forget about how this affects our other fur-babies. As a result, you may see a spike in behavioral issues.
2. Being Inconsistent with Boundaries
We get it, those puppy eyes are hard to resist. However, if you fail to put in place boundaries and stick to them, you will have much bigger pawblems down the line.
3. Skipping Exercise
Missing a walk here and there is one thing. Un-fur-tunately, skipping it altogether is a big mistake many pet owners are making.
4. Following the Wrong Diet
Our pets rely on us for their nutrients. Feeding your doggo a junior’s diet when they should be on senior can cause some major red flags and health issues.
5. Forgetting to Pet Proof
If you’re going to bring a baby home, one of the first things you do is make sure it’s baby-friendly, right? So, why wouldn’t you do the same for your fur-babies? Electrical cords, hazardous cleaning products, chewable precious furniture are all at risk of getting your pet in trouble. Not to mention the fighting and litter box snacking that can happen in a cat and dog household!
Are you even a pet owner if you hadn’t wished you pet proofed your home sooner?
Because we have. Countless times! Especially when you throw a crawling baby into the mix. We’re talking Kity Roca everywhere and cat food disasters every day. Poor Mr. Ralphy, he had no idea what was in store for him when we brought our sweet baby girl home.
So, why didn’t we pet proof our home the moment we knew we were going to be expanding our furmily? Well, because of probably the exact same reason you haven’t - it’s hard and expensive!
Have you ever tried maneuvering through a baby gate at 2 am or with an arm full of laundry? Not fun. Then there’s the cat door. When you’re renting or simply have a love for your home, cutting a hole into the door just doesn’t seem like a viable option.
We knew there had to be an easier way to give our cat his space while keeping our little explorer out!
