Having a pet is like having a child. There are messes, fur, feedings, the hassle of packing for trips or outings, necessary gear, and more. We’ve found some cool things to make these tasks more enjoyable – and a lot easier.
Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Cleaning System
When we say, ‘make life easier’, we mean it with the ONEPWR Cordless Cleaning System from Hoover. We tested it and it did not disappoint. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised at the power and thoroughness of this system. There are nine cleaning products strong enough to clean up pet hair and messes – including something the cat dragged in – and onto the carpet. Each cordless product operates on the same innovative lithium battery, which makes it simple to switch between products. This system is super lightweight and easy to use and maneuver. We especially like the ONEPWR Blade MAX Cordless Vacuum, the ONEPWR Spotless GO Cordless Portable Carpet Cleaner, and our favorite, the ONEPWR FloorMate JET Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner, which vacuums and washes floors and carpets at the same time!

AquaPurr Cat Fountain
Cat lovers want to give their cats fresh, clean water, but conventional recirculating fountains are a hassle to clean. The AquaPurr, a top-rated cat fountain on Amazon, never needs to be cleaned! Water flows fresh and cool from the faucet to the AquaPurr. When the cat stands next to the AquaPurr it triggers the flow of water out the drinking spigot. What they don’t drink just goes down the drain. Fresh water for the cat. No cleaning or refilling for the owner. Simple!
Giving your mutt a drink on the go is easier now with AutoDogMug Leak-Tight, a BPA free dog water bottle. Squeeze the bottle and water fills the connected bowl for your dog to drink. Release your squeeze and excess water drains back into the bottle, not wasting a drop! Use the leak-tight lock to keep the water from leaking out in your bag when storing. There is also a larger version called the Growler for bigger dogs.

A stain cleaner that gets cat vomit out of a white chair? Yes, please! Stain Solver is powerful, and the only certified organic oxygen-bleach cleaner made in the USA with USA ingredients. Use hot or warm water to mix and stir until all the powder is dissolved, then allow the solution to work for a long time – hours if need be – so you have to do little work. We give it two thumbs up!
Cat Ball® Bed
The Cat Ball® bed was designed around the fact that cats are compelled to crawl into small spaces. This hexagonal bed with two openings gives cats the options that they crave. Made in the USA using only fabrics and foam, cats look adorable inside the cave-like bed. The Cat Ball® bed is made in the state of Washington and fits cats and small dogs to about 18 -19 pounds.
B&B Kustom Kennels
Let’s face it – crates are ugly. When it comes time for crate training, we set up wire cages within our homes that don’t reflect our living spaces or how much we care about our four-legged friends. Now you can forget wire cages. B&B Kustom Kennels are designed to be both fashionable furniture for the home and fit the needs of the pup. Made from beautifully stained wood, you can choose from optional storage such as open cubbies or drawers, doors, beveled, rounded or square feet, and more. Customize your crate for your style!
FurZapper Laundry Pet Hair Remover
FurZapper is an easy solution to removing pet hair from towels, sheets and blankets, clothes, pet bedding and more. Just toss it into the washer and dryer with your laundry and let it work its magic. This tacky, flexible disc is just sticky enough to gently collect and pull fur, hair, dust, and debris from items as they tumble through the cycles. It’s non-toxic, re-usable, hypoallergenic and 100% made in the USA. So, if you’re tired of washing and drying your clothes and still having pet hair all over, try FurZapper. It works wonders!
