Special Space for Pets in Your Kitchen
Most of us have and love pets. Our kitties and pups are with us on our couch or bed. Although kitchens are generally not the ideal places for pets or children, if you are an animal lover, you will feel differently about restricting your pet or keeping your kitchen off limits. The solution is to have space where you train your pet to sit, stand, eat or even sleep. You can have a special space created for your pet where you can place its belongings so that it gets the idea. Somewhere out of the way, toward a corner would be best to keep your pet safe.
