What’s worse than getting coal in your stocking? Pet odors and messes when your holiday guests are on their way. Below are six foolproof, pet-friendly tips and products that will keep your house clean, dust-free, odor-free and always ready for any and all gatherings. Glad tidings and glee this holiday season!

1) Just because your home has a litter box, does not mean your home has to smell like one. Just like with anything, you can’t believe everything you see and hear. When selecting a natural cat litter, those containing odor controlling ingredients is a good thing, but  leaders in this category, ökocat Natural Cat Litters from Healthy Pet, contains a patented odor control formula that can keep odors at bay for up to seven days!  ökocat Natural Cat Litters contain no artificial scents or perfumes, and contain the all-natural scent of pine which erases odor instead of masking. Heavy perfumes and additives don’t mix well and have the tendency to leave behind strange and offensive ammonia scents.

pet food mats 



2) Leave the slobber and flying food up to the Grinch! Have you ever come home to find your house looking more like Times Square on New Year's Day, due to kibble scattered all over the floor and a combination drip path of water and slobber halfway across your living room floor?  Mess-containing mats are a great and affordable solution to keeping your pet's food and water from spilling across your floors. Bella® Spill-Proof Mats by Loving Pets for Dogs (bone-shaped) and Cats (fish shaped) comfortably fit two to four bowls for food and water.  Made of durable BPA-free plastic, with a raised edge and slip-resistant feet on the bottom to keep the mat in place, Bella Spill-Proof Mats make clean-up a breeze.
