Within the past few years, we have been using household cleaning products more than ever. What if we told you that by trying to keep yourself safe from bacteria, you're actually putting your pets at risk of major health issues?!
Ingredients such as bleach, ammonia, chlorine, glycol ethers - found in common household cleaners can be extremely toxic for pets, children, and even adults. Cancer, anemia, liver and kidney damage are all health risks pets face when exposed to toxic chemicals. Even when toxic cleaners are closed and stored away in a cabinet, the vapors left behind can harm us, our children, and our furry friends.
Common Household Chemicals and Related Health Issues:
Ammonia: skin irritation, burns, respiratory and neurological issues
Glycol Ethers(carpet cleaners): kidney and lung damage and even leukemia
WHY NON-TOXIC CLEANING PRODUCTS ARE IMPORTANT:
Non-toxic cleaners are just that - NON-TOXIC. Products such as Petique's Odor Eliminator Collection With Photocatalyst Technology use green chemistry - which means there are absolutely no harmful ingredients. Photocatalyst Technology works with the air molecules in our eco-system to instantly dissolve and break down bad odor molecules and turns them into H2O and CO2.
Most cleaning products on the market use fragrances to mask odors so that consumers feel like they're REALLY cleaning. What if I told you the molecules that cause odors and stains are still there, even after using these toxic products?!
All pets are at risk of ingesting harmful chemicals, but cats are particularly vulnerable since they constantly self-grooming after being exposed to toxins and because their bodies do not handle toxins well due to the lack of certain liver enzymes.
TIPS FOR CLEANING PRODUCT SAFETY:
Try to use Non-Toxic cleaning products instead - make sure they are free of sulfates, alcohols, harsh irritating chemicals and detergents
Read labels carefully and follow use instructions properly
Be aware of the chemical strength, if you HAVE to use products such as bleach or alcohol be sure to dilute it
When cleaning with chemicals, place children and pets in a different room and ensure there is PLENTY of ventilation

I absolutely LOVE the jogger- i think Zora cat does too!
I had bought a Jogger a fews years ago to enjoy
getting outside safely with wonderful 19 year old cat. It brought us both so much fun together during COVID and our last year together. Another “grand-cat” came along, but i had gifted my Jogger to a friend. i realized recently how much i was missing having a Jogger for her too. I love EVERYTHING about my new jogger, just like i loved my first one! So happy to be on the go with again with my girl:)
We’re still working on breaking in our old girl on her new ride. I’m happy to say it’s progressing nicely and it’s been great to have her along on walks again! The stroller is sturdy and well balanced. Halo is approximately 38-40 lbs and the buggy performs great with her in it. Very pleased.
This is nicely made. It's hard to find a two-tier pet stroller that's not cheaply made. What we really wanted was a "double decker" stroller made with the same high-quality components as Petique's jogger but no one has anything like that. I hope that it lasts at least for 4-5 years, b/c this is a pricey item.
