1. An artificial grass potty pad that lasts longer than traditional training pads and can be used outdoors on a patio or balcony, for your pup's middle-of-the-night (or middle-of-the-torrential-rain-storm) bathroom needs.
2. An enclosed litter box with an adorable mid-century aesthetic, for folks who don't have the room to stash an unsightly box off in a far-away corner. Plus, the enclosure contains the eau de litter.
3. Or a cabinet-style litter box, so even if you have a studio, you can give your kitty a little privacy, without disrupting your interior design.
4. An easy-to-install pet door that fits onto your sliding glass doors, no cutting or complex installation required. Attach the panel to your pre-existing door frame with screws or adhesive strips and voila! Your pet gets easy backyard access, and you get an easy way to remove the pet door when it's time to move, Airbnb your place, etc.
5. A set of two potty training bells (plus training clicker), so your pup can let you know when it's time to grab the leash and head downstairs (instead of just silently standing at the door until it's almost too late).
7. A handheld pet hair vacuum, so even if your space isn't big enough to bother with a full-sized vacuum, you don't have to be buried alive in fur.
8. A chic cat tree, because in an apartment where space is at a premium, it's worthwhile to get pet play areas that double as decor.
9. Or a hanging, portable, multi-level cat condo, for folks who move often, or just need a kitty play area that won't take up precious floor space.
10. A mentally stimulating dog food puzzle toy, so your pup can stay engaged and entertained all day long, even if you don't have a lot of space for them to explore.
11. A set of cat feeding toys that will stimulate your indoor kitty, even if you only have a small place. Fill the toy mice with food and hide them around your apartment to engage your cat's instinct to hunt and explore.
12. A pet smell neutralizing candle, because no matter how much you love your pets, sometimes, you'd like to smell them a little less.
13. A railing safety net, so your fur babies can enjoy your balcony or loft area without any risk of falling or getting stuck.
14. A raised kitty perch that attaches to the window with suction cups, so you can add some vertical play space to your apartment without making room for a whole cat tree, or messing up your walls by drilling a bunch of holes.
15. A set of two pet bowls built into an easy-to-clean silicone mat, so you won't have to worry about spilled water dripping through to the next floor, or kibble falling somewhere hard-to-reach, where it becomes a meal for gross, apartment-dwelling pests.
16. A wall-mounted scratching post for apartments that don't have the floor space for a large traditional scratcher.
17. A thick, reusable, machine-washable potty pad, so you can train your pup (or care for an aging doggo) without worrying about anything damaging your floors or carpets, or leaking into the apartment below.
18. A bottle of pet stain and odor remover spray that works on carpet, tile, and hardwood, because nothing will make you realize how small a 500-square-foot studio really is like a lingering pet smell.
19. A 3.5-pound dry pet food storage container with a pour spout, so you don't have to waste precious, precious space storing big, unwieldy bags of dry pet food.
20. A pressure-mounted walk-through pet gate with a cat door, for apartments with lots of pets, lots of love, but not quite enough doors.
21. A set of foldable pet steps with railings, so older, injured, or just plain tiny pets can stay independent, and you can stow them away when you need to make extra space.
23. A silicone-bristled paw washer, so you can clean muddy or dusty paws easily, even if there isn't much space to manuever.
24. A soft Chuckit! ball designed for indoor use, so you can play fetch to your heart's content without annoying your neighbors (or messing up the drywall).
25. And a door protector that will keep your door (and security deposit) safe from scratches and claw marks.
