Pet owners know that every day is a celebration of our furry friends. But we love to go all out to make them feel extra special when National Pet Day rolls around. (Psst: That's today!). And by “special” we mean going beyond a scratch behind the ears and a dog biscuit. For some pups, letting them hop on to the couch to sit next to you is a treat in and of itself. Amazon's No. 1 bestselling PetSafe CozyUp Folding Pet Steps make it easier — and right now, you can get a set starting at just $38 (down from $63!).
The lightweight design supports a pup or cat that weighs up to 150 pounds and comes with tread fabric covers and nonskid feet to help your pet feel stable. The stairs weigh only five pounds so it's easy to move them from room to room; they also fold flat for simple storage. Bigger pets don’t have to miss out — there’s a large version of the PetSafe CozyUp Folding Pet Steps ($56) at Amazon as well.
If you need more convincing, there are 33,000 five-star reviews from loving pet parents that can’t say enough good things about these stairs.
Pet parents have all sorts of reasons why these stairs have brought joy. Some have older pets with get-up-and-go challenges; others have small pups who just need a little assistance.
A little leg up
One pet owner thinks they’re great for little legs: “Helps Fluffy von Wuffy get to where she wants to be.”
“Bought these stairs to assist my dog get up onto the bed due to having bad knees,” wrote another pet parent. “At first she was afraid of them and needed assistance to use them. But by the third day, she started using them herself. For a smaller dog they are great.”
Better than a ramp
“My 13 year old 90-pound lab loves these,” gushed a happy dog owner. “They are easier for her to use than the ramp I had made. I would have THOUGHT the ramp would have been easier, but.... she does not think so, and that is what matters. I'm just glad to have her able to get up into bed again. She was sitting and staring at me until I lifted her up before she got these.”
Neil Patrick Harris is aging like fine wine — and he's enjoying the ride. The actor, 49, stripped down to his skivvies for a recent cover shoot with Out magazine, and spoke in its feature interview about everything from filming nude scenes for his upcoming Netflix show Uncoupled (created by Sex and the City’s brainchild Darren Star), the complexities of digital hookup apps and how he’s embracing aging.
Kristin Cavallari is opening up about learning to love herself. The Hills alum, 35, appeared on Lewis Howes’ podcast The School of Greatness this week, where she discussed everything from parenting to finding confidence in herself. She spoke about making her reality TV debut as a teenager and how that taught her how to navigate hearing criticism from strangers. It's a skill, she explained, that she now can pass down to her three children, who she shares with ex-husband Jay Cutler.
