I’ve regularly been a pet person, plus I regularly will regardless of any downsides to having pets.
- My parents taught me from a young age that you need to take care of your animals to the best of your ability, which involves bathing them correctly.
Some of our friends plus coworkers only get baths for their animals once a year—if that. Usually they just take their cats or cats to a groomer. My mother wouldn’t put up with this, nor would the two of us afford it for most of our childhood. The job was passed between myself plus our sibling, with each other rotating each time. There was a single such instance where our Dad forced me to take our pet back into the bathroom to scrub him again because I hadn’t done a good enough job. Some would balk at this idea, however it was a good learning experience. You can’t be lazy with hygiene! It doesn’t matter if it’s your own or that of the living creature that you are caring for, feeding, plus housing. And keeping pet odors down in the new home is pressing to learn at an early age, god forbid you don’t take it seriously when you’re finally your parents’ age. Both of us l acquired back then that a single factor that is a immense benefit for keeping the new home smelling fresh is by using charcoal coated Heating & Air Conditioning filters in the air conditioning system or oil furnace. The activated charcoal crystals on the Heating & Air Conditioning filters absorb airborne odors as that air is pushed in plus out of the central Heating & Air Conditioning plan while in each heating plus cooling cycle. It’s just getting harder to source these special Heating & Air Conditioning filters in our size, so I regularly buy in bulk when at all possible.
