We take our four-legged fur babies for a ride sometimes, to the groomers, playdates or on a leisurely drive. They're as equally exhausting as an actual baby, but we love them to bits. Here are 4 things car owners with pets know all too well.
1. Fur EVERYWHERE
Everything is covered with fur and slobber. Your seats, the dashboard, and even the roof. If you have leather car seats, this makes things even worse - but we have a solution. Protector mats! These pet-friendly covers protect your car seats from getting wet and covered in fur. Cleaning is made simple, take the mat out and wash. Get yours on Lazada for $36.76.
2. Constant barking/meowing
"Hey, quiet back there! I can't hear the GPS!", as much as we like to think our pets can understand us, Lil' Captain Marvel probably doesn't know the difference between yes and no. Usually when this happens, you pet is a little disoriented from being in a moving vehicle. The only good distraction? Food. Your pet will be too preoccupied chowing down to make a noise.
3. Hitting you while you're driving
Pets like to do that don't they? Hitting you with their tails and paws, causing you to swerve. To keep you and your pet safe while driving, consider getting a seat belt for your pet. Yup, a seatbelt - who would've guessed? They're even so affordable, about SGD$8.80 on Lazada. A small price to pay for safety.
4. Flung about
While a seatbelt can be used on bigger dogs, smaller pets like cats and dogs are notorious for being thrown around the car while you're driving at a bend or stopping abruptly. For a safe and comfortable ride for the mini ones, atravelling carrier pouch that can be attached to your car seat is the best bet!
