4 DIY Ideas for Your Cat or Dog

Living with pets should be easy and rewarding. Here are four super simple organization and storage ideas, plus easy ways to prevent spills, protect your floors and furniture, keep your home clean and generally be prepared for day-to-day life with furry friends.

  • DIY Cat Scratcher

    To build a DIY cat scratcher, use a flat piece of wood and some crafting cord. Apply two strips of Scotch® Indoor Mounting Tape to the board and wrap the cord tightly around the wood and tape to secure it. Use Scotch® Indoor Fasteners to attach the cat scratcher to a wall or other smooth surface.

  • Pet Food Bowl Hack

    Here’s an easy way to help pet-proof your home and protect your floor — make a spill-proof pet food bowl. Using Scotch™ Extreme Fasteners, put one end of a fastener on the bottom of the bowl and the other end on a floor mat, tray, or directly on the floor. Strong hold and dirt-resistant, the fasteners keep the food bowl where it belongs, and yet it’s easy to remove and reattach the bowl when you need to clean and refill it.

  • DIY Litter Scoop Storage

    Keep the litter box area clean and tidy with this quick pet organization hack, and create a little storage space for the litter box scoop. Take half of an old juice jug, decorate it, and attach it to a wall, the inside of a cabinet or the side of a litter box using Scotch™ Indoor Fasteners. Remove and replace as needed for cleaning.
