    1. A massive box of poop bags for your pup because with the current weather situation, it's inevitable your doggo is gonna want to take twice as many walks. So there's no harm in stocking up on quality bags now. Bonus: These are 100% leak-proof, so no poop gets on your hands.

    8. A cat litter deodorizing powder, because sometimes you just need to bring out the *major* cleaning products. This powder, which gets layered with your litter, has a moisture-activated scent to keep your litter box smelling fresh. It also helps prevent clumps from sticking to the box.

    9. A placemat for your pet's food and water bowls, so you don't have to worry about any of it messing up your floor. We should mention that it's waterproof and *soooo* easy to clean! Just throw it in the dishwasher or wipe with a wet rag.

    10. A self-cleaning slicker brush for your cats and dogs because it's about time you invest in a good one! It can actually help detangle your pet's floof, reduce their shedding, and even help remove dirt and debris. Since this is a self-cleaning brush, all you need to do is press a button, and swipe everything away!

    13. And a ChomChom roller that removes pet fur from all your upholstered furniture and bedding because no one needs to know you have 9,499,548,813 cats. The best part is you don't need batteries to get this working — just run it over the area with fur and watch it work its magic. To clean it out, press a button to release the fur; it's really that easy.

    14. A paw soother stick to help your pup's irritated paws. Not only is it easy to apply, but it moisturizes, softens, and soothes your pup's paws right away. Fun fact: This item is also organic, vegan, and made of ~natural~ ingredients.

    15. A litter box enclosure that looks like a sleek contemporary bench, because why not hide the gross, ugly litter box inside a stylish piece of furniture? Practical and complete with a removable partition, you can even use the other half to store supplies! You and your cat deserves this.

    16. A pack of plant-based and compostable wipes to use on your pet in between baths or when you accidentally leave lipstick marks on them. Something super cool about this product is that it can be used on your dog's face, paws, and tushie! Side note: With every purchase, some money goes back to support shelters and rescues.

    23. A pooper scooper for your yard to make cleaning up number two way easier. In addition to coming with a rake and bin, it also comes with poop bags to line the bin. So you won't have to worry about bending over to pick up all that poop and then getting it all over the place while trying to toss it out.

    25. A pack of BuzzFeed Tasty dog treats to reward your pup after a long day of being über-cute, without giving them any unhealthy snacks. Made with six ingredients, including grilled chicken and sweet potato, this treat is going to have your pup begging for more.

    26. A travel-friendly water bottle because the hydration struggle is real, especially with all those hikes you have planned. It may seem like a normal water bottle at first, but it has a paddle-like basin for your pet to lap out of. Just press the button, and water comes flowing out. You can also use the button to get excess water back in the bottle! Also, it's leak-proof!

    27. A vacuum that specializes in sucking up pet fur from your floors. If you have a dog or a cat, you probably need this. Although we love our pets, their extra fluff can cause allergies or give your home additional dust bunnies, but the good news is this will take care of all that.
