Keep litter box area clean with rubber garage tiles from a home improvement store & placing them under the litter box. Litter gets trapped in holes & not tracked all over the house. Works better than litter-trapping mats sold in pet stores.
For mudroom cabinets: Pet Food Cabinet with Bowls, much prettier than bowls on the floor, plus storage for dog food and other pet items. Close the bottom drawer at night to keep the cats out of the dog food.
Just in case there is ever a boy frenchie in this house! bow ties for puppies! Used this general idea to make bow ties for a couple dogs in my life. I just made the bow and then a pin to attach to their regular collar. Could also be tied on with a ribbon.
