I’ll share a little secret with you, I think that I might shed more than our dog ever could. Of course if you have pets, you know there will be shedding! The fact that Neato Robot Vacuums have been consistently reviewed as “Best For Pets” by Industry experts, and publications like CNET, appeals to me not just for our dog, but for the humans too!

How do you handle pet shedding? Check out the Neato Shedding Solutions Guide for some great tips from our friends at Pet360 and PetMD, to help care for your pets and your home!

Because our Baby likes to sleep on the carpet and run on the hard floors, I love that the Neato can easily move along different flooring and not lose suction! I also have a feeling Baby would get a kick out of seeing the Neato start vacuuming without me lifting a finger. That’s right, it runs all on it’s own on a schedule you set! It will even return back to charge itself when the battery gets low.

First snow of 2014, a time lapse

I saw that we had snow in the forecast yesterday, so I set up our time lapse camera just for fun to capture it. If you look closely you will see a few birds too, small and large. The little birds are called juncos, and they love to come eat our walnuts. We also get a few woodpeckers, and pigeons. You will see both juncos and pigeons in the video.

Note, this video has no sound. What it is the weather like in your part of the world?

Feeling stressed? Try a little #KittenTherapy!

This video is sure to make your day! What happens when you take some stressed out humans and offer them a bit of relaxing therapy? A surprise that is full of adorableness, that’s what! And, it looks like it worked too. Who could stay stressed after playing with a bunch of adorable kittens?

In true SoulPancake fashion, they built the world’s first ever kitten therapy office for chronic
stress cases. “Patients” step into a clear glass therapy office where they are guided into a
peaceful meditation. Once their eyes are closed and their mind is beginning to clear, the
“therapists” (tiny kittens) burst from the wall, providing instant stress relief with belly laughs and awwww’’s. The video is full of squee-worthy moments, urban art installation inspiration, and the feel-good vibes that SoulPancake has become known for. Oh, and did we mention the kittens are beyond cute?!

Simplify your cleaning routine with Neato Robot Vacuums #NeatoBestPetVacuum

logoNeato Disclosure

Everyone who loves a pet knows that they aren’t always tidy. Let’s face it, pet hair and other pet messes means more cleaning. Of course we wouldn’t trade our pets for anything in the world, which is why I am excited to share the Neato Robot Vacuum with you today! This little robot is going to help you simplify your cleaning routine!

This is my dream robot vacuum. Not only does is it the best for pets, it has so many other features, I can’t wait to try it for myself some day (just read the rave review Daily Tekk gave it)! The Neato Robot Vacuum is utilizing some neat technology! Neato Botvision navigation allows the vacuum to navigate around objects, into tight corners, under beds, across different surfaces (carpet to hardwood) with powerful suction and brushes. Fun fact; this laser guided navigation is the same technology used in Google’s driver-less car!

The schedule feature sounds amazing. Can you imagine? Just pick the days and times when you want your Neato to vacuum for you, and let it do the rest? You can vacuum in your sleep even! It even returns itself to it’s base to recharge. Add in the larger dust bin, bigger brush, and super suction, and this is one super robot vacuum. And it’s a REAL vacuum too, not just a sweeper like competitors. Check out the fun video below to see it in action and learn more about it:

Pets spend most of their lives on the floor, or on the ground outside. Keeping your carpet clean isn’t just for looks, it’s also for health, both for your pet and for the people in your house. Neato Robot vacuums can pick up dust and dirt particles as small as .03 microns! That is some deep cleaning friends! Think of how much better you will feel when you get down on the carpet to play with your furry friend knowing that the carpet is nice and clean. This feature really appeals to me for our household!

I’m also in love with the fact that it can easily go from hard to soft surfaces. We have both in our home, so this is a great feature. But most of all, haven’t we all wanted a self cleaning house? The Neato Robot vacuums bring us one step closer to that dream! The fact that they are also the best for pets is the cherry on top!

carpetcuteStay tuned, I’m going to be sharing how YOU can win this awesome vacuum for yourself very soon! Wouldn’t that be a fun win?
