Tips on Living with Pets

Toys are best collected in a basket. Food bowls and cans are, if the color and form are correct, noble home accessories. There are now also chic cat scratching trees, with which it is nice to live.

This is because carpets are better for romping than parquet or stone floors – they also protect your pet from slipping and dampen noises.
