November is Senior Pet Month where we celebrate senior and geriatric pets. All pets bring us so much love no matter their age. Why not take a few minutes this month to corral their clutter and help keep your pet safe and healthy.
Tips on organizing your pets
• Dedicate space in a low profile basket for play toys;
• Install a wall hook or place a basket to hold leashes and lint brushes;
• Store vaccination and immunization records in a binder;
• Note future teeth cleanings, grooming and yearly check-ups in a calendar;
• Place food in airtight plastic or glass containers for freshness;
• Repurpose a cleaning caddy and make hauling shampoo and everyday groomers easy;
• Store supplements and medicines in a cool dry place (not in bright sunlight);
• Set up an adhesive note system on the fridge so others know pets are walked and/or fed;
• Save yourself time by purchasing a self filling water bowl.
Set up a pet boutique
Set up a pet “boutique” in an extra cabinet or closet to accumulate pet sitting instructions, extra pet beds and collars, puddle pads, doggie bags and dog-wear, brushes, tennis balls, bowls and mats, fleece blankets and towels for bath day. It’s amazing how much we can accumulate for our pets.
Donate what you don't need
Review what you have and donate what you don’t need any more or have not used in the past 6-months. Your local shelter will be thrilled to take donations.
How much do you love your pets? How do you get them organized?
