Good lessons come tough…wondering how having a puppy will prepare you to be a great parent. Shed all your fears and look skim this blog to discover on how puppy can teach you parenting lessons.
Too Expensive – Making you realize the importance of budget during parenthood
Many think that having a puppy is all enough and never count on the expenses. But that just not completes anything. This bundle of joy along with them brings a huge cornucopia of expenses ranging from vaccinations, dog food, toys and chews, grooming and regular vet visits. Moreover, when your puppy needs any emergency medical care, you definitely need to spend those hundred bucks.
On the same notes, having a baby opens up a new gateway of expenses. You need to really spend a few more on vaccinations, daily care, clothes, baby food, and many more. It is estimated that a family spends $ 200 alone on diapers. Isn’t that far more from your budget and definitely your furry pal helps you plan your budget for the new baby.
Cleaning – You are ALWAYS on this TASK
Food tit bits on the floor, the couch sprayed, the bed sheets trampled…well that is all you notice with your fur baby going around. You will find that at times they are mischievous. As a pet owner, you can be quite busy with all the cleaning stuff to be going around with your furry pal spreading the trash, shredding a piece of paper or wetting the bed. Well, that hones you with parenting skill as babies are no less in creating a wreck on a living room or the kitchen where you have to please yourself with cleaning the mess.
While growing up, your furry ball requires your constant attention. Whether you are working on the computer or trying to groom yourself, there are those cute eyes staring with a waging tail and a tongue hanging. From the morning till night when you have to go under your sheets, you need to check on your puppy to train them, feed them or take them on the walk and they are there wherever you go. On the same platform, a baby would require your constant attention – a running nose, spilling the milk or the potty job.
Well, a puppy teaches you good parenting lessons taking you on a ride of crests and toughs of parenthood. Your furry bundle of joy has surely implied a path to show you how lovely (yes with little tears in those eyes) it is to have a baby and love the journey of cradling up a newborn.
Do you like unwanted guests visiting your home? No one likes it, isn't it? These unwanted guests can be such a pain to us but can we do something about it? Probably not. But one thing that is similar to these guests is the lingering smell of your tabby's urine which gets worse after each hour just like a thought lingering in your mind when these guests would leave your house. The good thing is that this foul smell can be eliminated and their stain can be removed unlike the unwanted guests that cannot be asked to leave your house (It would be a little impolite isn't it when you ask them to leave).
How To Get Rid Of Cat Urine Smell
But in order to remove the stains and the foul smell you need to work a lot on cleaning the stuff. With proper guidance it is possible to get rid of the smell of your tabby's urine. Let us look at some of the tips to clean the urine and eliminate the smell too.
Blot Up As Much Urine As Possible:
If you find your cat has urinated outside her litter boxes such as floor, carpet or furniture, clean it as soon as possible. Start off by putting an absorbent paper towel, or cloth on the area to blot up all the urine. If the cat has urinated on clothing, drapes, linens wash them off immediately or give it for dry cleaning as soon as possible. If you plan to wash the clothes later, the urine on the fabric may leave the stain and even a stubborn odor. Adding detergent with enzymatic additives or baking soda is the best way to clean the things that have urine odor.
Eliminate The Stain And Smell With An Enzymatic Cleaner
Cats have a stronger odor of urine than people. For this, you need to use enzymatic cleaners which release cultures that literally eliminate the stain and smell. It tends to leave the things clean and smell free, after it dries. Clean the place and the item properly, because your cat might smell the leftover urine and she may soil the area again.
Avoid Cleaning The Area With Steam Cleaners
Steam cleaners must not be used because the intense heat can actually make the odor get set into the carpet and become stubborn. Clean the area with an extracting wet vac, so that the smell gets extracted from the carpet. It will expel the water onto carpet or fabric and then suck dirty water back into the tank. This can be the easiest way to rinse the area if you are using carpeting on the floors.
Spray Room Freshener
After cleaning up, spray the room freshener containing baking soda. Baking soda is also known as sodium bicarbonate. It is good for absorbing the odors. Sprinkle it on the area after cleaning the cat urine. Let it set for an hour, then vacuum it up.
If your cat is not using the litter tray and urinating everywhere else in your home, there may be many reasons for your cat to not use the box:
