Christmas Cats! And a Little About the Safety of Pets During the Holidays
- Category: Ideas & Inspiration
- Practices: Different practices
This morning we woke up and suddenly realised that very little remains before New Year! It is just in a week! We forgot about the holiday with all our affairs, but now it's time to prepare :) If you have the same problem as we do, then let's see how our meowing pets prepare for the holidays!
1. Restrict access of your pet to a Christmas tree. Cats and dogs will definitely be interested in a tree. Someone will definitely try it out, the most playful animals will try to climb a tree. Try to thoroughly secure a tree. You can also use a decorative protection which will hinder the access to a tree.
2. Living Christmas trees. Do not forget to clean the needles that fall from the tree. Pet may swallow them or hurt their paws. Do not allow your animal to drink from a bucket for a tree.
3. Decorations. Try to place tinsel, serpentine, and electric garlands so that they are in a place inaccessible for your pet. Remember the deadly threat of tinsel, and how cats and rodents love wires.
4. Candles. Not all animals are afraid of fire, and many wear long, fluffy hair. Do not leave candles unattended where a furry friend can reach them.
5. It is not necessary to treat your pets with salads, cakes, smoked sausages, and fried meat. These products are suitable for human (not all of them and not always), but not for a cat, a dog, a bird or a rat.
6. Arrange for your pet a secluded area or separate room where the animal can hide when tired or scared. Remember that a large number of guests, loud music, dancing and excitement is a stress for the animal. Feel free to make a comment to the guests, if you see that your pet is scared. Explain to children that a cat or a dog may also be tired from attention and games. In the room your pet must have familiar and favorite items: bed, toys, food and water. Don't forget the litter tray. It is better to close curtains and window not to scare the animal by fireworks and firecrackers.
7. During the holidays try not to let your pet into a corridor or a passageway chamber. During the holiday bustle you may not see how a furry friend slips into the stairwell or even on the street. Terrified of unfamiliar surroundings and noise of the fireworks, it could get spooked.
8. Love and appreciate your cute fuzzies :) Let the holidays be pleasant for you and for them :)
And now, when we have learned all the rules, we are waiting for a minute of fun :)
