Meet George and Jax. George is our outgoing, crazy, destroyer of all things Bengal mix. Jax hiding in the background is our shy, timid, fluffy love ball Domestic. They are both the bane of my existence and the loves of my life. In writing my series of posts regarding Spring Cleaning I feel as though I left out one important factor. I may Spring Clean but about 5 minutes later the house is a complete disaster once again. The reason being is that I am a pet parent. Our cats create messes that I have no idea how they can even be possible.
In today’s post I am going to share with you 5 Of The Best Products For A Home With Cats. Austin and I have been pet parents far longer than real parents. Morgan is going on 16 months. George and Jax, they have been with us for 9 and 8 years respectively. Both George and Jax are rescue kitties.
George was born and raised on the streets of South Central Los Angeles; where cats are killed as a sport. Many ending up skewered on the end of fence posts. George had a home at one point but the family was evicted forcing him back on the street. He was a friendly cat who my friend who did animal rescues would meet quite often on her missions. His ear is clipped which is how they identify cats they have captured, neutered and released once again. My friend Elena knowing that George was quite special, wanted to find him a forever home.
At the time that we came upon George he was being fostered by Elena’s good friends. Austin and I knowing that this cat was quite rambunctious loved him right away. He has been living with us, ruling our house ever since. Jax on the other hand was found at a shady warehouse adoption center. He was born into a litter that was killed, he was the only survivor. We adopted him when he was 6 months old. He had a horrific past but now he is loved and doted upon every day.
On a lighter note, Jax and George are our pet children. We love them even when they are at their worst. Which seems to be more often than not. However we have learned to cope with many of their behaviors because we have been fortunate enough to find the most amazing pet products on the market. The 5 products which I will be listing today have saved our sanity in addition to our cash!!!
This post contains affiliate links, which means that at no additional cost to you I may receive a small commission if you purchase an item using my links. I however will only recommend items that I have in fact used and love.
Fresh N’ Clean which also comes in different sizes has saved so many items in our home. We have cleaned our sofa, our bed, our carpet, even our hardwood floors. This item is perfect for all pet related stains from urine and poop to vomit. If you are a cat parent you are very familiar with vomit. Not only does the Fresh N’ Clean odor and stain remover work but it does not leave any residue behind. A clean scent is all that remains. Best of all it does not contain enzymes or chlorine bleach making it safe for several surfaces in your home.
Number 2: The Sticky Buddy
Over the course of 9 years I have spent well over $500 on lint brushes. I wear a lot of black and a lot of clothes in general that are cat hair magnets. I rarely trust products that are “As Seen On TV”. However, there was something quite appealing about the Sticky Buddy. For one it was reusable. Never again would I run out of lint brush papers before an important meeting. Never again would I spend hundreds on those lint brushes that would just cause more waste.
The Sticky Buddy is simple, it is a sticky silicon like product that works wonders on picking up pet hair. It is then ready to wash and reuse. I use it on our sofa, our bed, my clothes, and our furniture. Stop buying and throwing away lint brushes, do yourself a huge favor and buy the Sticky Buddy today! It also comes with a Lifetime guarantee so you have nothing to lose.
Number 3: FURminator deShedding Tool for Cats
A beautiful compliment to the Sticky Buddy is the FURminator. They make FURminators for both cats and dogs. The FURminator is a fine tooth brush that grooms your pet. It like magic picks up mounds and mounds of hair and dander. I brush Jax sometimes for 15 minutes or so and the amount of hair that the FURminator is able to remove from his fluffy body is truly astonishing. The extra bonus is that it leaves your pet so silky soft and dander free. The extra extra bonus is that it reduces shedding by 90%! If that wasn’t amazing enough it also reduces hairballs meaning less vomit!
We can’t live without our FURminator. It has truly been one of the most helpful products that we own for our cats. George doesn’t normally like a brush but even he will tolerate the FURminator because it feels so nice and gentle.
In a previous post entitled 5 Of The Best Spring Cleaning Items Moms Must Have I had listed the Dyson as my number one recommendation. The reason being is that the Dyson is powerful, lightweight and compact. I love that I am able to take it with me from room to room while carrying the rest of my cleaning supplies.
This particular vacuum was engineered with parents (and pet parents) in mind, it includes a wide nozzle tool for cribs and upholstery. It can get into the little cracks in the sofa where cat hair just loves to hide. In addition it’s 2 cyclone technology captures microscopic dust and allergens. And just like the Sticky Buddy it eliminates waste from world because it does not require vacuum bags. It has a hygienic one button touch emptying bin. I just love everything about my Dyson.
Number 5: The Litter-Robot
I saved the best for last. Austin and I lasted exactly 5 months with a traditional litter box. It was gross, a pain in the butt and messy! There had to be a better way. And boy was there! The Litter-Robot is a safe automatic litter box that cats just love! We know so many pet parents that have the Litter-Robot and not one of them has had a single compliant. It works like this: your cat enters, does their business, exits the litter box, and then a little while later the Litter-Robot which senses the motion and the weight of the cat spins around depositing the clumped up litter into a chamber under the dome.
The Litter-Robot is extremely efficient. It has eliminated practically all cat odor from our home. And you only need to clean it a few times a week as opposed to every single time your cat uses a regular litter box. As an ambassador of the Litter-Robot I am able to give my readers $25 dollars off of a Litter-Robot, just click the link below:
This is an amazing deal! If you have cats, especially if you have more than one, this is an absolute necessity! Austin and I have literally never owned something that has been this invaluable!
What are some of the pet products that you can’t live without? If it will help me keep my house clean please let me know! I can use all the help I can get.
Thanks for reading!!!
