Place of pets in the house as per Vastushastra
The basic aim of Vastushastra is to establish harmony with nature. In essence, every person or thing should be in it’s natural form. Dumb animals should not be treated in a manner harmful to them and they should not be made unhappy for our amusement or benefits. It is against the laws of nature to keep dogs, cats, cows, horses, rabbits etc. tied in their stalls or confine the parrots, peacocks, geese, love birds etc. in cages. Vastushastra does not approve any thing which contradicts with the laws of nature.
If we analyse scientifically, it will be found that animals and birds are not static and they move in different places. A pet dog wanders freely inside and outside the house. It thus brings dirt inside the house. The hair, saliva and the faeces of the dog can pollute the atmosphere in the vastu due to lack of hygiene. A dog being faithful and a loyal guard, can be kept as a pet as an exception. But due care has to be exercised to maintain their proper health and hygiene.
Cats must not be kept in the house. They are shrewd and cunning. They can be influenced by many unseen and negative forces. Hence they may act as couriers of these negative forces.
Horse, cow, buffalo and bull are useful animals but it is necessary to keep them in their natural state. They must be kept in northwest portion of the house. Plenty of light and fresh air should be available in the place where these animals are kept. Their sheds should have slope towards northeast while the arrangement for disposal of waste, dung etc. should be planned from the northwest direction.
