What do you need to buy before you bring home a puppy?


When it comes to puppy care, it pays to be prepared. That means find out as much as possible about the breed, and about caring for puppies in general. Being prepared also means investing in all the gear a new puppy owner needs.


With a massive range of pet supplies and pet accessories, eBay is a one-stop shop for everything pet-related. First up is a bed. Puppies – and dogs – spend a lot of time sleeping, so it’s important to have a good bed. Find the right size bed for the breed, and make sure it has a removable, washable cover.


Other essential pet supplies on the list include a lead and collar. Puppy owners may also want to consider a harness, especially if the breed is known to pull. On top of that, there is the food and water bowl to buy. Be sure that any water left out for the puppy is not deep enough to drown in, as this can be a hazard for sleepy puppies. Check out different puppy food options and look for the most nutritionally balanced. Buying puppy food online can also save money.


Now to the fun stuff. Puppies love to play, so it’s important they have plenty of toys to chew on and play with. This can also help to persuade them not to chew on the furniture.


What are the best toys to keep a cat occupied?


Cats are smart. Unlike certain other pets, like fish and mice, cats really need to be kept occupied. Bored cats can have a tendency to take it out on their owners’ furniture. So, in the long run, buying cat toys usually ends up cheaper. But what’s the best way to keep cats happy, occupied and entertained?


Perhaps one of the biggest toys a cat owner can buy their fluffy friend is a cat tree. These multi-layer cat gyms have plenty to keep fussy felines amused; allowing the cat to jump from layer to layer, shimmying in and out of cat-sized rooms, scratching the built-in scratching poles, and playing with dangling cat toys.
