Essential Pet Supplies for Luxury Apartment Living

Some say that having a pet is similar to having a child, and they’re not entirely wrong. Pets require space, time, attention, and special supplies that you wouldn’t otherwise need. If you’ve just welcomed your first furry, scaly, or feathered friend into your apartment, here are some things that will make your life a little bit easier.

Pet Supplies for Dogs

Dogs are one of the most popular pets in the United States. However, unlike cats or fish, they require more space. Along with a walking route, you’ll need bathroom space for your four-legged friend.

During bad weather, an indoor dog toilet comes in handy. You can buy pre-made toilets, or you can make one yourself. You’ll need a few materials, access to a hardware store, and a little bit of elbow grease, to get it done in no time at all!

Pet Supplies for Cats

Cats might need less space than dogs, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t need their own space. For cats, it’s essential they have something to keep them entertained during the day. A great way to keep your cat engaged is with toys — whether they’re high-tech or a simple catnip mouse.

Another great idea is to get them a cat tree. It can be a twined pole with a couple of places for them to sleep or an elaborate cat condo. Either way, a cat tree gives a cat a place to call its own. They can stay out of reach of any small children or other pets, and if positioned by a window, the cat will get a high vantage point to watch the world go by.

Pet Supplies for Birds

Owning a pet bird isn’t as easy as it looks, and it’s absolutely imperative that you give your bird toys to keep it occupied. Make sure that you give Tweety a wide variety of things to play with. From mirrors to jingly bells, birds enjoy all toys. Remember, bird beaks need to be kept in tip-top shape, and a great way to manage your bird’s beak is to give them chew toys.
