Unusual pet of the week: A skunk

For this week’s unusual pet, we bring you the skunk. Skunks are infamous for their smell but this need not be a worry for a pet skunks owner as the skunk’s scent glands are removed from domestic animals when the skunk is about 4 weeks old.

Unusual pet skunkSimilar to cats, skunks can also be litter trained and typically live on a diet of vegetables and dry food supplement. If you are thinking of owning a skunk then you may have to think twice as only a few states in America actually allow skunks to be kept as pets.

A skunk pet is also a long-term ownership prospect as skunks can generally live for about 10 years.

Our unusual pet rating: 3 out of 5

Best carpet cleaner for pet hairs?

Vax Rapid Deluxe carpet cleanerWhether you have a junk pet or normal pet, at some point you will be faced with the problem of trying to remove pet hairs from your carpet. In many cases, it’s also not only pet hairs that need removing but all those little “accidents”. A vacuum cleaner will do a good job but you really need a good carpet washer to deep clean the carpet. So what is the best carpet cleaner for pets?

To save time we headed straight over to Best Carpet Cleaner Guide; and checked out the latest offerings from Vax and Bissell. It was not immediately obvious on the site which was the best carpet washer but with a bit of digging around the site (it was quite easy to navigate) we came across a model that was lightweight, easy to store and quick to use.

So what is the best Carpet Cleaner for pets (junk or not)? In our opinion its the Vax Rapid Deluxe, a good cleaner at a very competitive price.
