Let's face it, big or small, pets have a lot of shit. Here are some tips on how to make keeping them loved and pampered more cohesive with your space:
Don't let the websites or pet stores fool you! You can find a pet bed in any size, in any color (seasonal even, if you're into that kind of thang), with enough fluff for your creature for under $50. I suggest, however, keeping the bed in the same color family as a neutral shade in your space rather than a bright accent color. No matter how pretty or luxurious a bed is, it's still a pet bed that will get hairy and saggy with age (don't we all?). It needs to blend, not stand out. Extra brownie points if it's machine washable and has a built in bolster pillow.

Just like kids, pets leave their toys EVERYWHERE without ANY fucks. And of course, they're always drooly or have missing extremities. After stubbing my toe one too many times on a damn deer antler my man thought would be cool to buy for the dogs, I went out and found a neutral cloth bin to put behind a side table in our living room for secret squirrel toy storage. The dogs know where their toys are and my OCD is fulfilled with the subtle cohesive storage bin. Win win.
Drool and pool sized splashes of water are inevitable within the vicinity of where your pet eats, but ugly chewed bowls don't have to be. Finding bowls that match your home's color scheme in a ceramic or stainless steel vs plastic material will make them less noticeable and easier to incorporate into your space. Also, don't be afraid to put them in areas that people can see. I've situated both pups in my dining room using bargain place-mats and bowls found at Home Goods. We all can eat in style, right?
