How To Animal-Proof Your Window Treatments

Deciding on the right window treatments means keeping a lot of factors in mind. Not only do we have to decide on the right window coverings for our specific style, we also have to keep our pets in mind. We love our furry family members, but they clearly can’t grasp the concept of “private property”. Anyone who’s owned cats is probably familiar with their penchant for biting off the ends of blind slats so they can see what’s going on outside. Many dog owners have also come home to mangled and broken wood window treatments (dogs often do this out of boredom, anxiety, or panic about something going on outside).

Police Car Lights - DUI attorney Springfield

Like many things in life, we all drive a bit differently. For some of us, this can mean getting pulled over more than average, while others can go five to ten years without ever having an encounter with the police for breaking the rules of the road.

For those in the latter camp, getting pulled over can be incredibly stressful. It often happens when you least expect it. You’ve driven for so long without a police encounter that when those red and blue lights flash in your rearview mirror, combined with that ear-piercing siren, you might not know what to do at first.
