Keep the holidays cheerful with indoor pet containment systems

As November nears and the air gets cooler, it’s time to start planning for the holidays. The joyful season revolves around family, and that includes our pets. Amid all the special meals and gatherings that take place during these busy months, it’s important to be able to keep pets safe and accounted for so they aren’t tempted by all the extra food or frightened by the unfamiliar faces.
