Renovations with Pets – Stress on Pets

This week of Renovations with Pets, it’s about the toll it can play not only on the humans, but the stress it causes to the pets. Up until now renovations have gone rather smoothly.

Renovations with Pets – Week 1

The time has finally arrived and we are doing home renovations. I’ve been waiting what seems like a lifetime for this day. My new kitchen!!! Updated basement!!! I have decided to share my experience over the weeks and more likely, months, of my home renovations with pets and how long the humans can remain sane during the process. And of course I will interpret on behalf of Miss Edie and our cats, Lily and Lloyd as they share...
