National Love Your Pet Day falls on Feb. 20, and is the “unofficial” national holiday set aside to give extra attention to the pets you love every day, according to NationalDayCalender.com.
Even though most of us love our pets every day, it’s still a good time to remember why our weird and wonderful pets are so paw-some, and why adopting an animal companion can be so rewarding.
The Center for Disease Control reports that pets can decrease a human’s blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels and feelings of loneliness, as well as offer opportunities for exercise and socialization with others.
I can’t believe I adopted my dog over 14 years ago. Everyday with him has been a blessing.
Did you know that when you adopt an animal from a shelter you’re saving two lives, the life of the animal that you adopted and the life of the animal that’s going to take its place at the shelter?
Caring for our animal pals can take a lot of time, money, and energy. Fortunately, there are many resources for making this easier.
Mohawk just launched their all new All Pet Protection and Warranty for SmartStrand Forever Clean carpets.
The most durable, easiest to clean carpet on the planet just got better. SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet now features All Pet Protection and Warranty, the only pet-friendly carpet protection system that covers all pets, all accidents, all the time.
SmartStrand is an even smarter choice for pets and pet owners because:
- 0% moisture absorption eliminates pet odors in the carpet fiber.
- Nanoloc™ spill and soil shield makes for quick and easy cleanup.
- 3X easier to clean dirt, hair, and pet dander
- Lifetime, built-in stain protection
For non-carpeted areas, I like Mohawk’s Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT). It’s not the same vinyl floors from the past. This flooring is seriously good-looking, high durable and water-resistant.
It’s soft underfoot, which makes it a perfect choice for your kitchen or other high traffic areas and it keeps a constant temperature during the cold and hot months.
Another bonus is that it can be installed over an existing floor. So if you are thinking about updating your pet’s room, consider LVT and carpet from Mohawk.
Celebrate your furry friends all weekend long with Love Your Pet Day! Whether you cuddle up with a ferret or have given your heart to a cold-blooded lizard companion.
