How To Ensure Your Home Is Pet-Friendly

If you’re thinking about bringing a pet into your home then the first thing you need to do is ensure your home is pet-friendly.

Similar to bringing a baby into a home, making sure that your house is safe for a pet is essential for any pet owner. It will ensure your pets are kept out of trouble at all times and that you can feel safe leaving them at home when you’re out at work or running errands.

With that in mind, here are 9 ways to ensure your home is pet-friendly:


Block Off Rooms That Are Unsafe

#LivingArrows – Make It Count 3/52 (2019)

Looking at all my friends photos online, I feel kind of bad that most of my shots tend to get snapped indoors at present. Don’t get me wrong, my kids and I are outside regularly whilst at play. However, it has been so cold recently that we’ve not been outside for too long before heading back indoors to thaw out. Apologies therefore if my pictures come across as bland and boring.

As part of E’s extra curricular activities, we have spent time playing a few maths games together – one of which she was extremely excited about playing and has requested endless times since.…

#TheOrdinaryMoments – Pooch Perils

If I should ever wonder where either of my children may be, I will usually find them wherever the dog happens to reside. The pooch adores the pair of them and would follow them to the moon and back if she could.

Whilst I can cope with keeping two kids clothed, warm, fed, watered and healthy – it seems that I unable to care for and to keep a plant alive for more than week. I’ve had all kinds of house plants over the years and, none of which have made it for long.…

The Siblings Project – Cuddles On The Couch (January 2019)

I made a vow to take part in a range of linkies during 2019, one of which was the ‘The Siblings Project’, a monthly linky (run and hosted by Dear Beautiful) sharing snapshots of our children together. J & E have the most fantastic relationship and despite the odd squabble they get along like a house on fire.

It’s not often that J & E manage to share a snapshot together, they are forever playing together but that doesn’t always make for the perfect picture. This particular photo was taken by my Mum whilst our kids were out at a sleep over.…
