A DEVICE THAT CAN MAKE STAYING AT HOME EASIER
Staying at home also means more housekeeping, so why not let technology help. The iRobot Roomba i7 robot vacuum helps take some of the work out of working from home. Its patented dual multi-surface rubber brushes pull in dirt, debris, and pet hair from wherever it hides, while a high-efficiency filter captures 99 percent of pollen, mold, dust mites, and cat and dog allergens. The Roomba i7 features Imprint Smart Mapping, so it knows the kitchen from the living room, giving you total control over which rooms are cleaned and when. Using the companion app, you can create customizable Keep Out Zones to keep it out of unwanted areas, like around pet water bowls. The Roomba i7 is also compatible with voice command devices for hand-free cleaning. And with Mother’s Day coming, you can now get $100 off – just in time to give Mom a cool gift.

SPENDING MORE TIME AT HOME WITH OUR PETS
With so many pet owners finding themselves at home spending unprecedented amounts of time with their pets, many are having to find new ways to manage the allergens in their homes – especially those with cats and cat allergen sensitivities. There are many ways to manage cat allergens, but not all are totally effective, and cat owners are looking for better options. Purina Pro Plan LiveClear is a revolutionary new cat food that has been shown to reduce the allergens in cat hair and dander in as little as three weeks when fed daily.
