Tip of the Day
Today's random little tidbit of a tip is to keep your cat or dog's nose in mind when using scented items in the home. Cats and dogs both have a far better sense of smell than us humans. This is why some smells, such as citrus, often cause a cat or dog to turn and skedaddle in the other direction. Scents like citrus are already smell strong, but it's even stronger for a cat or dog's nose. This said, keep this in mind when selecting scents for detergents, candles, and other household items. Not only is it important that you are aware of these items because they can be dangerous to our furbabies for various reasons, but it's also important to remember that a cat or dog's sensitive nose might be offended by certain fragrance options of these kinds of items. For example, if you wash your kitty or pup's favorite bed with a citrus-scented or other pungent detergent, there is the chance that they might not want to sleep on it simply due to its strong scent. And if citrus or another especially strong scent fills a certain room, such as due to a candle or spray, a cat or dog might avoid that room in order to be away from that smell. Some cats and dogs of course will not care or will simply get used to some scents, even strong ones, but still do keep in mind your cat or dog's powerful nose when buying scented items.
