Keeping Kitty Safe at Christmas

Posted on 20 December, 2014 at 3:24
The Holidays are just around the corner. Time for family traditions: Christmas Trees, Dinners, Gift Giving, Celebrating.

But if you have cats it is best to know some ways to keep your cats out of harms way.

Many families enjoy having a Christmas Tree in their home, but often this is a cause for concern for pet owners. Cats may see the ornaments and lights as fantastic cat toys and the tree is for climbing, right? And cats are very curious by nature.

Here are some tips to help keep kitty safe around the Christmas tree.

  1. Wrap aluminum foil around the trunk. This will help discourage climbing since cats don't like the the feel of it.
  1. Remove the lower branches. This serves many purposes. Cats are very good climbers and this may make it harder for your cat to climb the tree. This will also eliminate the lower hanging ornaments that will tempt kitty to play with.

  1. Do not use tinsel on your tree. To a cat, tinsel looks like a shiny string to play with but is very dangerous if your cat were to ingest it. This can cause serious injury to your cat resulting in expensive veterinary bills, or worse.
  2. Watch the electrical cords. Chewing the cords can cause serious harm to your pet. You can tape the cords to the wall to prevent chewing but it is always best to unplug cords if you are not there to supervise your pets.
