Having a cat is sort of like having a baby: you need to feed them, take good care of them, and rearrange everything in your house to keep them safe.

Despite all the hard work we do our pets always find a way to get into trouble. Cats have a talent for ruining your home, but you can stay one step ahead of them with these clever tips.

Whether your cat loves to ruin your furniture, stink up your living room or bother you when you're on the computer, this list has the brilliant solution you need to live happily with your pet.
