Interior Design with Pets in Mind

cat-1By Leslie Pearce

Spending quality time indoors with your pet is one of life’s great enjoyments. With that in mind here are some helpful tips to make sure both you and your pet are as happy inside as outside.

A big question to think about, where are your pets going to sleep? Under the kitchen table? In a dog bed, kennel, sofa or with you? Your pet will appreciate a quiet place and their own bed where they can catch a quick nap before looking for their next adventure.

Animals need plenty of toys to chew on, otherwise the remote and your glasses can be mighty tempting! If you like open windows, make sure your screens are secure. Give your cat an alternative to the couch such as a scratching post.

Waterproof luxury vinyl and tile are the best options for flooring. Buy furniture with pet hair and claws in mind.
Silk, velvet, denim, and woolen fabrics are magnets for animal hair. Leather and its alternatives are good choices. Rugs with non-skid pads are a must for safety. Cats love rubbing against something scratchy or lumpy so AVOID textured walls or embossed wallpaper.

Cats and dogs play and drink in toilets, close lids. Chocolate, avocado, tomatoes, and other tasty snacks can be
harmful to your dog or cat. Keep cords from blinds secure, a dangerous enticement for animals.

Having a well thought out indoor environment for your pet is always a great idea!

Liz Moore & Associates Launches New Report to Help Makes Sense of the Real Estate Market in Virginia

Liz Moore & Associates launches “Market Talk”, a report designed to help make sense of today’s real estate market. Written by Liz Moore, President of Liz Moore & Associates, Liz covers what’s happening in the local real estate market and provides insight for sellers, buyers and renters.

  1. Have sellers missed their opportunity? “No they haven’t” said Liz Moore, President and Founder of Liz Moore & Associates. “They might get 2 offers instead of 17 but interest rates are still low compared to their historical average. Now is still a good time to sell.”
  2. According to Liz, “Buyers will start to see more normal terms, contingencies will be coming back and there is less concern about overpaying. Now is a good time to consider that “move up”.”
  3. Regarding renting versus owning, “Rents rise with inflation. Owning your home fixes your monthly payment and provides the opportunity to build equity over the long-term.”

The free report is available at https://www.lizmoore.com/blog/.

Liz Moore & Associates is a boutique real estate agency with more than 150 agents and staff in 5 locations throughout Virginia.

Supper: A Pet Friendly Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Aug 24, 2022 @ 06:48 AM

SupperBy Karen Newton

Supper in Scott’s Addition knows how to make its four-legged customers happy.

Settle into their garden patio, full of plants which are used by the kitchen to create seasonal menus, to get a sense of being in the country while actually in an urban setting. The sense of serenity makes it a calm oasis for friends, family, and pets to enjoy a drink or meal. With a wide-ranging menu of comfort foods that speaks to both carnivores and vegetarians -the stuffed portabella and Down on the Farm sandwich are legendary with Richmond’s non-meat eaters- Supper has had a devoted following since the day it opened in 2012.
Part of that following wears a collar and walks on four paws. To accommodate them, the staff will supply your dog with a water bowl and something even far tastier: healthy treats made in-house by Supper’s baker. Rare is the pooch who will turn down a homemade treat.

There aren’t a whole lot of rules to bringing man or woman’s best friend to Supper. All fur babies must be well behaved, and according to owner Rick Lyons, most are. They’re also required to be on a leash and refrain
from bothering other patrons at nearby tables.

“We love our Supper Puppers and encourage our patrons to bring them here,” says Lyons. “We’ve never really had an issue and when we do, it’s usually the human involved. Go figure!”
