8 Pet Cleaning Tools You Should Be Using

The Latest Tools & Gadgets For Pet Maintenance

When I was three, my brother and I received a kitten as a Christmas gift from a family friend. In general, we were not “pet people.” My mother was highly allergic to cat dander and my father (once a mail carrier) held a deep seeded grudge against dogs that bordered unhealthy. So when it came time for my parents to graciously accept the purring present, in the back of their mind they were already planning its return.

Unfortunately for them, kids have a way of making you do a vast array of things you never thought you would. In my parent’s case, that included the raising and loving of a long-haired, Himalayan cat. My brother and I were immediately attached and in no time at all, it was apparent he was in our lives to stay. We named him Fred.

Pets find their way into your hearts, homes, and, unavoidably, your wallets. Caring for and maintaining a pet is no small feat – it’s important an owner understand the commitment.
