Give Your Four-Legged Friends A Happy Home
Much like you, your pet needs to live in a comfortable and happy home. In this article, we will take a look at some tips and tricks to keep your pet(s) happy.
Create Space For Them
Everyone in your home has their own space, and so should your pet. Ensure they have a cosy bed, clean dishes and a well-kept space. If your pet already has such, ensure that you tend to it often and keep it clean. Creating this space for your pet gives them a sense of belonging in the house. They can relax and not wander around all the time.
Treat Them With Treats
Food is a universal love language among humans and their pets. Always buy the types of food flavours they enjoy that are fit for their size, and feed them the right portions at the right time. Typically, this is how often you should feed:
- A cat: at least two meals each day. They should be about 12 hours apart. But a breakfast, lunch, afternoon, dinner, and right before bed schedule is an equally great option. If more than 12 hours elapse between meals, the stomach can become hyper acidic, causing nausea.
- A dog: once or twice a day. It's best to do it twice daily at 8-12 hour intervals. If you're doing it this way, split the suggested amount found on the bag, or you'll feed them double what they need.
The Crazy Store has a range of pet treats such as Best Buds bones and biscuits, and other delicious flavours. So visit a branch near you and give your pet a tasty experience.
Let’s Play Outside
Part of housing a four-legged friend comes with fun playtime outside. This can help both you and your pet unwind, unplug and keep active, especially now that we are all used to the new normal. Take your pet for a stroll around the neighbourhood, or if you have a lawn or garden, let them play outside. This will get rid of their boredom and provide mental stimulation. This doesn’t apply only to puppies or small cats — adult cats and dogs need play sessions and toys to keep them mentally stimulated and keep their teeth and claws strong. At The Crazy Store, we have a range of pet accessories for your little (and big) ones to make playtime better.
The Soft Things
Because all pets are different, it is important to learn your pet’s love language. This way, you can show them love and affection by either giving them attention on some days, taking them to their favourite parks regularly, making their favourite food and other gestures of kindness.
You should also consider having a routine for you and your pet so that you know when to feed them and when to take them for check-up’s. Routines also help should you need someone to pet sit while you’re away. Keep your pet clean and flea-free by ensuring that you wash them regularly, and consider pet insurance as it may help you in an unfortunate and unexpected event.
