11. Hate Looking at the Litter Box? Here's a Quick Fix:

It may seem counterproductive, but having two tanks is actually a major help when it comes time to change your fish's water. Simply have the empty tank all ready to go with clean water, pop your fish in and get around to cleaning the dirty tank when you can; just make sure you actually clean it before the next time you need to change the water.

12. Can't Get Your Pet to Drink Enough Water? Try Ice Cubes!

Get the Whistle Monitor. It attaches to your pet's collar and sends updates directly to your phone. It tells you just how much rest and play your pet has had while you were away.

13. Want to Make Changing the Fish Tank Water Less Stressful? Opt to Have Two Tanks on Hand.
