1.A grooming rake so you can loosen fur and lighten your dog's undercoat in one go instead of vacuuming up chunks of hair every day as they're shed. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.
2.Or a hair-removing glove that'll do a similar job while also satisfying your fur baby's endless desire for some rubbies. It's great if your dog or cat goes running at the sight of a brush.
3.An electric pet shaver for giving your fur baby a speedy trim before their coat becomes a mess of knots and mats. This set comes with four guard combs so you won't accidentally nick the skin, as well as a set of clippers. Reviewers say it's quiet — a plus if your pets are sensitive to noise.
4.An automatic water fountain to stop your cats from spilling water all over the floor. Cats generally don't like deep, narrow bowls, so they may try to tip over their water dish to drink comfortably. The open design of this fountain will encourage your picky cats to stay hydrated.
5.And a set of elevated cat bowls if you wish Mittens would stop knocking over her food bowl. Just once, Mittens! These stainless-steel bowls are angled to reduce neck strain. The wide design of these bowls also helps prevent whisker fatigue (aka when the whiskers are overstimulated by being touched too much).
6.A slow feeder cat mat because it'll thwart your chonky boy (or girl) from gobbling their food (and their siblings' food) in a matter of minutes and — I hope! — prevent the dreaded after-dinner vomit that you have to clean up.
7.A scented clumping litter so the clumps go into the trash bag in one piece instead of crumbling all over the floor and making a stinky mess for you to sweep. And no more trying inhaling an ammonia-scented dust cloud after every scoop; this dust-free litter clumps together tightly and has 10-day odor control.
8.A litter box mat that'll trap any crystals that've hitched a ride on your cat's paws, or prevent the litter that your cat's kicked up from spreading. It's slip-resistant and gentle on your cat's paws. And! Cleaning is easy: shake out the litter (you'll probably want to do this outside), vacuum the mat, or rinse it with soap.
9.A top entry litter box for keeping the litter where it belongs: in the dang box and NOT all over your floors and carpet. It has a grooved lid to catch any litter that's attached itself to your cat's paws, plus it comes with scoop!
10.Or, a self-cleaning litter box to do the hard work for you. The crystal litter absorbs your cat's urine and dehydrates the poop so you won't smell a thing. Then, there's a motion sensor that detects when your cat has finished its business so a robotic rake can scoop the waste into a sealed trap. Every few weeks you'll need to toss the tray and replace it with a new one, but each one should last about a month for one cat.
11.An odor-eliminating spray if you're tired of your pet leaving you yellow presents in the same spot over and over again. This cleaner lifts stains and odors fast, releasing bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.
12.And on that note, a pack of pee pads, because your puppy is on his way to being fully potty trained but these'll prevent any big messes until they're doing their business outside like a pro. These are also a great option for families with older pets or those with mobility issues who have trouble telling you when they need to go or who can't hold it for long periods of time.
13.Some fleece liners so your guinea pigs' cage doesn't even have a chance to get wet and smelly. This super absorbent bedding is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, and odor-resistant, and it'll keep your furry friends' paws dry to help prevent bumblefoot.
14.A cardboard scratcher lounge that'll help your kitty satisfy their urge to scratch in a constructive way that doesn't involve your couch legs.
15.And speaking of couch legs, a set of clear couch protectors to protect your furniture from your cat's wrath. These self-adhesive pads blend in with your couch and chairs and can be cut to size.
16.A furniture cover to prevent your couch from ending up covered in fur. No more spending hours trying to suck up every visible pet hair; just toss this in the washing machine!
17.A Ripple Rug if your pet needs a productive outlet for their energy and natural curiosity that doesn't involve causing a mess. You'll enjoy watching them hide, pounce, scratch, and dash in and out of this activity mat (which is made from recycled plastic water bottles!) — but what you'll love even more is that they're no longer destroying your couch legs.
18.A stimulating activity mat, because a bored pup is bound to get into trouble. With this, you can keep your doggos entertained and challenged, especially if you hide treats and kibble in it.
19.A robot vacuum you can run for a few hours every day so you don't have a mountain of pet fur to hoover on the weekend.
20.An absorbent doggy doormat that'll trap dirt from your pup's paws and prevent them from decorating your clean floors with muddy paw prints. There's a no-slip coating on the bottom, and the mat is machine-washable!
21.A super absorbent microfiber dog towel for drying your pup as soon as bath time is over so they don't leave puddles and wet spots all over your apartment.
22.A nail grinder if you want your wood floors and furniture to remain free of scratch marks. It'll trim your pup's claws to an acceptable length so they don't leave behind gouges in your beautiful oak flooring. Plus it's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.
23.A Wobble Wag Giggle ball because it'll hold your dog's attention with its exciting internal noisemaker and six pockets, leaving them too entertained to even think about nosing through the kitchen trash. Your pupperino will be rolling, fetching, and shaking it until they're panting.
24.A portable paw washer so your floors aren't covered in muddy footprints after letting your dog inside. Inside the container are soft bristles that lift dirt and grime from the pads of your pup's feet — all you need to do is add water.
25.A durable ring that'll actually stand up to aggressive chewers so you're not fishing bits of foam from between the carpet fibers or cleaning up strands of leftover rope that your dog chewed off, swallowed, and then threw up on the floor.
