There are many kinds of domesticated animals–but dogs and cats make up the lion’s share of household pets. That means lots of dog and cat necessities to organize.
The top dog and cat clutter culprits tend to be the supplies and materials that get the most use: food, toys and grooming products. Fortunately there are now a variety of pet organizers to help you keep your canine and feline accessories tidy. Here are three different types of pet stuff storage solutions designed with dogs and cats in mind:
- The Pet Stuff Tower is a space-saving system for storing dry food, treats, toys, leashes and more in one easy-to-access location. The slender tower (12.8 inches wide by 16.7 inches deep, and 33.9 inches high) contains two storage bins with snap-lock lids to keep freshness in and pests (and pets) out. Each food bin holds up to 15 pounds of dry pet food; a 1-1/2 cup food scoop is included. The bottom bin has a foot pedal for convenient hands-free access. There are also side hooks for holding leashes and bags.
- The Plastic Storage Chest with 4 Drawers is ideal for pet stuff storage–it has room for all kinds of cat and dog necessities. The two deep drawers are useful for litter box fillers and bulky toys, while the shallower drawers are handy for holding items such as litter pan liners, grooming materials and small toys. The optional casters make it easy to move around.
- The Raised Dog Bowl Set is a combination pet food storage container and feeding station. The set consists of two quart-sized bowls atop a secure latched bin that holds up to 46 cups of dog food. The bin section is semi-sheer smoked plastic so you can easily monitor the food levels. Designed for medium-sized dogs, the bowls are elevated to help improve your dog’s posture and digestion. In addition to home use, this set is great for travel since it’s secure and compact.
