    More pets = more love...but it also means more problems.

    1. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement because all your doggos deserve relief from their allergies and skin sensitivities. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a their coats.

    2. A bag of hairball control cat treats for kitties who are prone to leaving you furry surprises. Ensuring your cat gets frequent brushings and has plenty of fresh water should also help reduce the frequency of their hairy hack-ups.

    3. A mounted brush that'll satisfy your cats' ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.

    4. A broom for pet hair to loosen the fur trapped in your carpet — because housing multiple pets = a lot of fur. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass.

    5. A grooming rake so you can loosen fur and lighten your dogs' undercoats and prevent future mats. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.

    6. A pet hair remover if you love your fur babies but hate how much they shed...on everything. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    7. A Bissell SpotBot, because anyone who's owned a pet knows they're cute and cuddly mess makers. And when your house is a zoo, the amount of mess is multiplied many times over. Who wants to spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing cat vomit from the carpet? The answer: no one.

    8. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum for sucking up pet hair. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    9. A pooper scooper that'll scoop the dang poop so you don't have to kneel down to pick it up.

    10. An interactive cat toy to entertain every kitty under your roof — from the pickiest floofer who enjoys exactly one toy from the dozens you've bought them to your lovable goofball who usually prefers the box in which their toy arrives.

    11. An odor-eliminating spray so you can lift stains and odors fast. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pets' accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    12. A purring cat toy if your kitties suffer from anxiety. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your felines can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    13. A stimulating activity mat, because bored pups are bound to get into trouble. With this, you can keep your doggos entertained and challenged, especially if you hide treats and kibble in it.

    14. A pack of Burt's Bees cat wipes for reducing dander and keeping your cats fresh. It's made with aloe vera and oatmeal to condition dry skin and reduce redness.

    15. An air purifier that'll not only cleanse the air and suck up pet dander, but reviewers say it also does a fantastic job getting rid of funky animal smells.

    16. An automatic water fountain to encourage your picky cats to stay hydrated. Some cats hate drinking still water (long story short, it's a defense mechanism), so a fountain with running water may be more enticing.

    17. A slow feeder bowl so you can stop your dogs from inhaling their meals in a minute flat. These ridged bowls can help improve digestion, reduce bloating, and encourage your dog's foraging skills to keep their mind active.

    18. A dual dog leash if you're tired of being pulled in two different directions every time you take the pups out to pee. It can also be converted to a regular leash when you only need to take out one.

    19. An automatic pet feeder because it's time to regain your freedom from your furry overlords. No more being woken up at 6 a.m. by a hungry pet or having your Zoom meetings interrupted by yowling in the background because dinner is one minute late.

    20. 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 a scoop! The best part = the high sides will keep your snooping dog from eating poop...because having to constantly prevent your dog from eating the cat's poop is objectively one of the worst parts of having a dog.

    21. A wood polish that'll hide the scratch marks from your dogs' overgrown nails along the bottom of your doors and on your wood floor.

    22. A food storage container to keep your pets' kibble fresh and out of their greedy paws. The snap lock latches will prevent moisture and pests from seeping in.

    23. A set of clear couch protectors to protect your furniture from your cats' wraths...or boredom. These self-adhesive pads blend in with your couch and chairs and can be cut to size.

    24. A waterless cat bath if getting just one of your cats to stay in the tub long enough to bathe them is...a monumental task. Having to wash another cat on top of that (and risk even more arm scratches!) is nothing something I feel like doing.

    25. A furniture cover to prevent your couch from ending up covered in fur and to protect the material from your scratches and claw marks. When it's dirty, just toss this in the washing machine!

    26. A pack of matatabi chew sticks that'll grab your kitties' attention if they don't give a lick about catnip. Matatabi is a plant native to Japan and a catnip alternative. Plus, the stick format helps keep their teeth clean.

    27. An automatic litter box to do the hard work for you. The crystal litter absorbs your cats' urine and dehydrates the poop so you won't smell a thing. 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.

    28. 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.
