Anybody with a pet knows how quickly they become part of the family – and part of the furniture. Of course you love them, but you don’t always love the way they leave your home. We’ve discovered some great ways to keep your furry or feathered (or scaly) friends happy without destroying your furniture:
No. 1: It’s a whole new ball game…
Anyone can teach a dog tricks, but what about your fish? Based on food rewards, the R2 Fish School Kit ($29.99) contains everything you need to train Goldie to play fetch, shoot hoops, swim the slalom, and even limbo dance.
No. 2: The purr-fect place to hang out.
The Hanging Cat Cuddle Pod ($29.95). Because every cat thinks he is above it all…
No. 3: Bunks fur pets
Who says bunk beds are just for kids? Now, if you want to spend $339.99 on this LazyBonezz Metropolitan Pet Bunk-Bed, even your pets can fight over who gets the top bunk.
No. 4: Flower bed
Bring the outdoors indoors with this quirky by stylish little Jardin Chic pet cocoon and planter.
No. 5: For the birds
Meal times would certainly be a lot more interesting if you had this as your dining table. Parisian designer Gregoire de Lafforest incorporated this bird cage into a console table as a way of using nature as theatre. One way to drive your cat crazy…
No. 6: Travel tails
Travel broadens the mind, so give your dog a taste of the great outdoors with this incredibly cute mobile home. Or you could just leave it in the back garden and give Fido the coolest kennel on your street.
No. 7: iCat
Got a cat-loving techie in your life? Then this upcycled iMac pet bed (€100.93)from Etsy seller Atomic Attic is just purr-fect.
No. 8: Sleeping with the fishes
If goldfish really do have just a ten-second memory, can you imagine what goes through this little fella’s mind every time he reaches the edge of this cool tank?!! The hand-blown Bubble Tank was created by Richard Bell of the Sheffield collective Psalt Design.
No. 9: No more soggy doggies
Tired of muddy paw prints all over your hall? The Soggy Doggy doormat ($38.22) works beautifully as a towel, and its soft, snuggly “noodles” means your canine will love sleeping on it too.
No. 10: There’ something fishy about this sink…
