Do you have a cat or a dog? Then this collection of useful and practical tips will greatly facilitate your life. Here you will find the most useful, unexpected and economical life hacks that will help you and your pet.
Do you want your dog to look at the camera when you take a picture of him? Attract her attention with a ball. Pre-glue the plug from the old headphones to the ball, and then insert it into the corresponding phone connector.
Does the dog not get off your lap? Why not make her a sunbed like this?
And in order to make such a "bed", you will only need an old sweater and a pillow.
The "dining room" for a large breed dog can be disguised as a chest of drawers. Even a huge bag of food will fit inside.
Just three branches and a piece of cloth – a cozy hut for the tailed is ready.
A hammock is also easily made. Stretch the fabric of the desired size between the four legs of a chair or table.
And such a cozy place for sleeping can be equipped using a wicker basket and a blanket.
A rubber glass scraper will help to quickly and effectively collect wool from home furniture or car seats.
For the same purpose, a rubber glove is also perfect
In the spring, during molting, your cat will be incredibly happy with such a device, fixed in a secluded place.
And this one, too. You can make it from two brushes for washing dishes and a base.
Do not forget about another natural need for cats – manicure. Otherwise, your upholstered furniture will suffer. If for some reason you do not have a special scratching post, you can equip it on the leg of a table or chair (and such a device will be less noticeable in the house than a regular scratching post).
It is enough to wrap the leg tightly with a sisal rope. It is believed that this fiber is best suited for cat claws.
If your pet (especially a cat) peed on the carpet or left a mark, do not rush to write it off (carpet). And do not even try to solve the problem with ordinary detergents – they will only mask the smell for a while, because they cannot deal with special substances contained in cat urine. Of course, you can use store-bought funds – but they are not always at hand, and they cost a lot.
But soda, vinegar and peroxide will be found in any house. And they will cope even better! First, thoroughly blot the puddle with napkins. Then pour 9% vinegar, diluted with 50/50 water. Leave it for a while so that the vinegar is completely dry, and then sprinkle the stain with soda thoroughly. Pour the usual 3% hydrogen peroxide into the spray gun, add a couple of drops of dishwashing detergent.
This solution is sprayed on top of the soda and left to dry, and then we collect the remains of the soda with a vacuum cleaner. This recipe is suitable for eliminating cat "surprises" and from upholstered furniture. However, we recommend checking on an inconspicuous area, whether this will not harm the fabric.
Some pets can not pass by a flower pot. Toothpicks inserted into the soil will not allow them to commit abuse of the plant.
According to some cat owners, cones laid out on the windowsill and in flowerpots also help to protect flowers. It is simply unpleasant for cats to walk on them.
And the owners of large dogs have come up with this way of protecting the doors. The transparent plastic cover does not allow the dog to scratch the door leaf.
A drinking bowl with a supply of water is a good solution for the hot season. As the animal drinks water from the bowl, it is added to it from an inverted bottle.
And this is a brilliant invention of mankind – "stick-over the fence-do not let go". It does not allow the dog to escape through the wide bars of the fence. However, smart dogs can soon figure out how to cheat the system.
But if your fence is deaf, take a closer look at this little thing that will allow the dog to satisfy his curiosity, and will partially save you from annoying barking and digging.
Not all dogs behave well during a trip in a car. So that the animal does not run around the cabin and does not distract the driver from the road, you can use such a clever trick.
To prevent water from getting into the dog's ears during bathing, put a plastic cap on her head.
