Little legs and big climbs aren’t usually compatible, which is why they often need a lift up from time to time.
As most animal lovers will tell you, our pets are our best friends, but while not everyone is that fond of having them climb on furniture, for those who don’t mind it, or even actively encourage it, budget supermarket retailer Aldi is selling some handy pet stairs, and there’s probably more benefits to them than you initially realised.
Suitable for cats and small dogs up to 15kg, the Pet Collection Plush Pet Stairs are specially-designed to help them get up and down from higher levels.
According to the product description on the Aldi website, with fabric that’s soft to the touch and can easily be wiped clean, the Pet Collection Plush Pet Stairs are perfect for assisting small pets in climbing and descending from higher levels.
They’re compact, lightweight, and incredibly-easy to relocate when required.
The steps part can also be removed too, and then underneath, there’s also some great storage space to store all of their favourite toys.
The best bit? The stairs have recently been reduced to the bargain price of £5.99.
One happy shopper shared the pet stairs in a post to the ever popular Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK group on Facebook this week, and it went on to amass thousands of likes and comments from other pet owners keen to get their hands on the cute invention for their four-legged friends.
The shopper explained that her dog struggles to get down from her bed as it’s too high, and so the stairs have been “ideal”.
Commenting on the post, one shopper agreed: “We have one for our little dog and she uses it every day”, while another shopper joked: “Never mind pets I could do with one of these for myself.”
People looking to grab the pet stairs will need to keep their eyes peeled and their fingers crossed as they head on down to their nearest Aldi store, and you can check the opening times of your local branch via the Store Finder here.

Portugal deny claims Ronaldo threatened to leave World Cup after being benched
Portugal have denied recent claims that Cristiano Ronaldo threatened to leave the 2022 World Cup after he was benched before their match against Switzerland.
Speaking in an official statement, the Portuguese FA rubbished a number of reports that their all-time leading goalscorer and national hero threatened to leave the tournament following manager Fernando Santos’ decision to drop him ahead of the game in the round of 16.
Ironically, the previous European champions weren’t left in short supply of goals, as they went on to win in a staggering 6-1 victory against the Swiss, with Ronaldo only coming on for 17 minutes at the end.
Nevertheless, the Portugal Football Federation (FPF) has insisted that no such conversation took place between the player and head coach Santos. As per national outlet A Bola, Ronaldo has apparently also made it clear that his country’s success at Qatar 2022 is his top priority.
The FPF went on to clarify in the statement: “Cristiano Ronaldo builds up a unique track record every day at the service of the national team and the country, which must be respected and which attests to the unquestionable degree of commitment to the national team.”
They also went on to thank him for his dedication and continued contribution to the squad by coming on as a substitute regardless of his reaction to being dropped.
The statement concludes by saying that the “players, coaches and FPF structure is, as it has been since the first day, fully committed and enthusiastic in building what the country wants to be Portugal’s best-ever participation in a World Cup.

Peter Kay issues heartfelt thanks to Manchester fans and teases ANOTHER big announcement
Peter Kay has sent a lovely message to fans in Manchester after making his triumphant return to the live scene last weekend.
The Bolton comedian has just ticked off the first two nights of a mammoth run at the AO Arena, which includes 42 Manchester shows between now and 2025.
On his opening night – his first real venture into the spotlight since he largely stepped away from the public eye 12 years ago – he was moved to tears by the standing ovation he received before he’d even started the show.
And now Peter has issued a heartfelt thank you message.
He said in a statement: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came to the first shows in Manchester.
“It was incredible to be part of such a happy experience.
“Everybody deserves a bit of joy. Here’s to a lot more in the shows to come!!”
And that’s not all – his post also hinted that there’s yet another announcement to come (because apparently more than 100 tour dates and breaking the internet with ticket demand wasn’t enough).
